Can you cash a cashier's check or money order somewhere other than your bank and deposit cash? The guy has really good grammar, usually the scammers start with something like this:

"Hello Dear Mr. Estinguished Chris - I am for to writing you in agreement that motor bike in good condition for acceptable purchase. I will give payment to you of $10,000 for KTM motor bike in return for you doing for me a simple favor to me. I will send you $15,000 by cashiers check in return for the motor bike and a cashier's check $2,000. You must can keep the change for doing the service for me reasons of government information.

With Sincerest Kind Regards Sincerely,

Mr. Roger Jones

Statistics show that 95% of all Jeeps ever built are still on the road. The other 5% made it home.

I too think Paypal is the safer choice. Read up on the Nigerian fraud thing. I knew a guy who got bit by it. He deposited the cashiers check, then checked on it several days later. His bank told him it had cleared. It wasn't until several weeks later that the bank then said it was fake and he was responsible for it. It was a real mess - lots of lawyers fees to straighten it out.
