Yeah, scam.  I followed through on one once and tried to cash the
check.  Turned out to be drawn on a non-existant bank in Tennesse.
The amazing thing was the funds showed-up available in my account for
a few hours.  Why, in this electronic age, can't banks figure this
stuff out quicker?  Oh well, I guess there will always be cracks.
