this is a very typical scam, unfortunately even forums full of awesome guys gets penetrated by fake accounts just looking to be scammers. normally they send you extra then ask for a portion back with the item you sent saying they accidentally sent you 50 instead of 20. by the time your fake cashiers check bounces they have the item, the extra money, and now your account is minus whatever they sent via check, plus some bank lock your account and make you pay fees to restore.. NEVER EVER do cashiers checks unless you trust the sender or know them.. even if it was a mistake a check is viewed as legal tender and the same as money, this could land you in some hot trouble from the fuzz..

Somebody on this site wanting to pay more must be a scam. Everybody on here think they should get stuff for half price.
