Or am I better off with the local auction house, who will come out to my house, look at the set, offer me a price, pay me cash and take it away that day?
This sounds like it would be your best option. Even if you do not get the amount you are asking for at least you know the money is real.
I am so dissappointed but happy that I have not deposited the check. I need advice, I have never encountered this but my emails sound the same and the check being sooo much over the asking price...it just has to be a scam..right??[/
I too am glad you did not cash the check. Victims are starting to be charge with fraud and other crimes when cashing what they beleive to be a real check. I think you should just shred the check and stop all contact with the scammer. And yes it is a scam.
