A friend of mine just received a check from this scam. Advised not to cash it and begun searching google which brought me here. How do they make money on this? Fake check I assume?

Not sure how they make money but thanks for posting. Just received the same email verbatum except she is saying she is from Holland. Sounded sketchy and your post confirms! Keep an eye out for each other....

Ya, he got hit up after asking for their money. I advised saying the ba k wouldn't cash and the police were involved. That shut them up. They make money from the few who do cash it, send them their cut, and then that person is on the hook for the entire amount to their bank when the check bounces.
