04:26 pm - A Word of Warning
This may be old news to most Etsy people, but this is the first time I've encountered it: a version of the Carig's List scam where someone sends a forged cashier's check or money order for over the amount of the total, and then the mark sends the overage on back to the sender or to someone else. And lo! when the thing is processed, it's a fake, and I've read that some of the marks have even been arrested for passing bad checks and the like.

I don't know for a fact that the exceedingly weird query I got was a scam- but it sure fits all the parameters.

So: if you're on Etsy, be aware.
