When confronted with a scammer trying to pull the Cashier's Check (or any non-personal payment instrument) scam, tell them that your financial institution WILL NOT accept their paper for deposit and that it has to be sent in for collection.
True, a collection will cost you some $$, but, if the scammer's paper isn't paid, you're not out big bucks.

Hopefully we can make at least a few scammers uncomfortable.
