This Jonathan Green scammer just tried the same thing on me when I had an item on Craigslist for $200 and he mailed me what appeared to be a cashier's check for $2050.00 and emailed me to send the balance back by Western Union. There was no return address on the envelope he mailed the check in, but post office marked it from Wilmington, DE 197. Check is marked Cashier's Check from US Bank National Association, Minneapolis, MN55480 with remitter Jaime Terry 2044 Appleton Gran Chute with routing number: 092900383
first email from Jonathan Green email@example.com
Your payment has been sent but there is something i think i must bring to your notice immediately. I just discovered there is an error in the payment sent to you. My assistant sent the payment meant for another item thats more expensive than yours. I have called the post office to see if they could retrieve it but nothing positive. I really dont know what to do now. Please and Please, you can go ahead and cash out the check at your Bank when you receive it, deduct your payment and send the balance via western union to the details i will provide you with. Can i trust you to do that for me?

Fortunately, googling "cashier's check scam" provided the crucial information needed so I was not taken in.
Then googling jonathan green scam got me to this website.
