So you're saying in a few weeks it will come back uncleared again?
As I said, the actual clearing of cheques can take weeks or even months, depending on the origin and location. The cheque hasn't actually cleared at all yet, and will bounce when it hits the clearing house. If the cheque was stolen rather than forged, the issuing bank will reverse the credit when the account holder makes his or her report. Do NOT touch that money under any circumstances once it is back in your account!
On that subject, did you give the scammers any bank account information?
So I would have been in debt to the bank for £3500 somwhere down the line! Phew
I have looked at the website you posted and done a bit of searching. It is a real business that is very often abused by scammers and referred to in scam formats. It is very common for scammers to abuse legitimate companies this way.
