I find it so hard to believe that people even have to ASK if these things are scams... Come on now, familiar with the expression "if it sounds too good to be true - it is!"

I have a total of 12,989 in worthless checks and moneygram moneyorders here from all different people. Get in touch with the ftc or the local police department in your hometown.

:crybaby2:I get those all the time, just throw them away!!!!! Also, anyone who emails you from "Nigeria".. IT IS A SCAM !!!!!
They actually live in Nigeria or they have some address in Nigeria. Those scumbags got me for a PSP when I was like 12... had it on ebay and shipped it to Nigeria. Everytime I get an email or question on ebay/craigslist from any scammer I make sure to tell them how much of a scumbag they are.

I have received 2: One was 2800 and the other one was 1850. I threw them away too. They asked me to send it to someone in London but I could keep the 100 of the money. Sounds familiar eh?

I know someone who received a check to do surveys and report to a company but when he went to cash the check which looked legit and had bank of america on it, the bank said it was fake. It's a shame how much people try to get over on scams.

I think it is a scam.  I once got a check and was asked to wire money for the person for an item I was going to sell her.  I cashed the check and did not send the item until the check cleared but it never did.  Do not do this as you will pay for it.
