Scammers might go to an online classified listing site and offer to buy an item for sale, pay for a service in advance, or rent an apartment. The odd thing is that they might send you a cashier’s check for an amount that is higher than your asking price. When you bring this to their attention, they will apologize for the oversight and ask you to quickly return the extra funds. The scammer’s motive is to get you to cash or deposit the check and send back legitimate money before you realize that the check you deposited is fake.
People who make up excuses for why they can’t meet in person and force you to make a decision quickly should be avoided, especially if shipping to a foreign nation or sometime local .
