Agreed. If you're going to give us $400 why not just send the $400? It makes no sense to say 'keep $400 of this check and send the rest back.' Unfortunately if you do fall for a scam like this YOU'RE the one the responsibility falls on to pay the bank back when the check bounces. So you lost that money and the scammer goes free. They know that. That's why it happens but it's one of the oldest tricks in the book so if you do fall for it you must've been living under a rock all these years.

i too experienced a similar scenario. I received postal money orders worth $1,750. I was to cash them at my bank, keep $200 as my fee and wire the balance to someone in the Phillipines. I instead went to the post office where it was confirmed that the money orders were bogus.
