I got that one and she promised me the money. Now I guess you will want to share the ghana bucks. Now I did a check of the exchange rates and ghana not being a big up and coming country the exchange rate isn't quite what you were thinking. Your half is .27 cents.

Are those the ones where they want to send you a check for the item you're selling, but they want to send extra in the check. Then you can arrange & pay for shipping with the extra, etc, etc, etc. All this would take place before their check would clear. Had two different ones try that on us when my wife was selling an organ.

That was a "music" kind of organ. She wasn't trying to sell any of our body parts (that I know of)!!!

Yes, but the reason it works is that international banking transactions can take several weeks to clear. My understanding is that U.S banking law requires the bank to make the money available no more than two weeks after deposit. Your bank tells you the funds are available, so you think the check cleared, arrange shipping and send the excess back to the scammer. Then the scammer's check bounces and the bank notifies you that they are taking the money back. You're stuck eating whatever it is you paid out assuming you were good.
