Hi Dave,

This scam has been around for some time and is just that, a scam.  The mail 
usually says that they are in a hurry to get the money for what ever reason.  
The victim, being a nice person, deposits the check and forwards the remainder. 
 Then the check bounces and the victim is out the cash and the equipment.

This same scam is used with money orders and occasionally a cashier's check.  
make it a practice to NEVER pass on cash from a deal like this. You WILL GET 
BURNED! Always wait for personal checks, cashiers checks and MOs to clear 
before sending your gear. State that when you sell on an auction site, too, so 
there will never be a question.  The only safe wat to release your gear 
immediately is cash, credit card payment from an on line company or USPS MOs, which so 
faer, have not been successfully counterfeited.


John,  W4AWM
