    In some of these scams, the foreign cashier’s check is treated as legitimate but later found to be fraudulent, and the victim is on the hook for any money withdrawn from the fraudulent deposit. That’s the way the foreign purchase scam works: the “buyer” offers to pay more than expected to buy something you’ve advertised, if you are willing to accept a significantly larger amount and refund the difference to them. You get the check deposited, you send back the difference, and then the check is declared fraudulent and you’re out the item you sold AND the amount you refunded from the “overpayment”.

    Yeah, there’s a “secret shopper” scam run the same way. My niece got a cashier’s check. If she had cashed it, she would have been handed cash, part of which she sends to the scammer. Then she has to pay it all back.
