I want one!

A lady in nearby Milwaukie, OR fell for a scam involving a cashier’s check for $2950. Scammers sent her a check, asked her to wire that amount back to them as some sort of security, and they would send her $50,000.00 in return as a prize.

I want one of those – what’s to stop me from just cashing the check and finding some reason the wire back won’t work? What are they going to do – sue me because I didn’t play along with their con-game?

I guess they could come beat it out of me. But beyond that… what?
