Yup

Tell them yea you'll take a check. A cashier's check. I've had this one tried on me. Especially if they start saying they'll make the check for more $$ than your asking and if you can send the rest to someone else...
Beware...

the words "good day" and "reguards" usually indicate nigerians, they will send you a fraudulent cashiers check or money order. They are the dumbest but most persistant people IMO. I have a copy of one they sent me. Their intent is probably not to buy your truck, it will be to send you more than it cost and have you refund the diference, and or send the diference to their "shipping company" via western union.

nothing, but the check YOU cashed will be fraudulent, and you will be liable for the funds.
