There is a common related scam, which works in the opposite direction and is slightly less obvious:

[+] Scammer informs seller that he likes to buy an item on BT.
[+] Seller waits for check to arrive before sending the item.
[+] Check arrives and seller notices that the check is for more than agreed upon.
[+] Scammer informs seller that he wrote the check for the incorrect amount and asks to add the difference to the package.
[+] Seller deposits the check at a local bank and makes sure the bank accepts it.
[+] Seller sends the package and the difference
[+] After about three days seller's bank informs seller that check has bounced.

The scammer takes advantage of the time lag between depositing a check at a local bank and the clearing house clearing it, which can take up to a week.

Can't one still request that a bank send a check "for collection?"

Then, when the funds come back, you know you're good...

So before I decided to make the big bucks as a regional airline pilot :eek: ……I managed Bank of America beaches….ahem…..financial centers…….I don’t know what “for collection” even is. :shrug: What Paul mentioned as a scam was one that I saw a few times. It was always with a cashiers check. They were fake. I had no way of verifying that a “bank check” was even valid. :shrug:
