Jane Doe wants to buy Pampered Chef

seriously, I got a "contact me from" Jane Doe in Florida (I'm in Tenn) about wanting to order from my "store." So I just email back, "go to my website and click shop." I get an email back with bad grammar saying she doesn't have a credit or debit card and will mail me a cashier check and I can wait until it clears to send the order. The mailing address she sent is an appraisal company.... Why do people do that?

Again, why does anyone take the time to make up something like that?

If she's going to mail you a cashier check, what is the risk?

It is a scam. Somehow (and I'm sure someone will pop on with the details), they make money as we process the check. They are criminals.

I work in the financial industry. Every year I have to take training on cashiering and one of the things that is drilled in us is how easy cashier checks are to fake/alter!

A lot of people think that a cashier's check is the same as cash. Unless you've had dealings with such things, you don't realize what you don't know.

Just surprised Admin Greg's post seemed to imply a cashier's check would be OK. There's been many topics about this scam through the years.

The cashiers check appears to be legit. My grandson got one and luckily mentioned it to me. His was not for PC purchase but same principle applies. We went to his Credit Union and had them call the bank the check was drawn on. Bank was legit and everything.
The person looked for the account number and found it was not valid. The check looked real, even had a real business name and address in a different city but the check was bogus.
Had my grandson cashed it and sent portion of $$ back to person (as he was instructed to do) he would have been responsible for the entire amount of the check plus fees because when CU tried to process it at the original bank, it would eventually be returned as fraudulent check.
