I saw this scam on the news. The cashier check will be a fake. -Kind of 
like the movie 'Catch Me if You Can'.
If it is the same scam, your bank may accept the check at first, but 
after a few days will find out it is fake - leaving you with no money 
and no car (and maybe a bank fee for a bounced check).

maybe you can set up a sting operation - Or give them an FBI field 
office number as your cell phone number.
