Yes, even in instances when they do send a cashable check (it happens as
part of the mechanism with real suckers), three weeks later your bank
comes after YOU when some international money mechanism turns out to be
a scam. YOU have the valid address and ID, and THEY are long-gone, and
the banks want their money back!

There's a website of a woman who really took some scammers for a ride
("buying" horses from her) and she really sucked them in and burned the
scammers, but man, it sounds like it was a full time job!
