Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I posted a TV for sale on ?***. The buyer contacted me by text message expressing interest in purchasing. He stated that he was out-of-town but would send me a check to cover the cost of the TV plus enough for his mother to ship the set to him. After two weeks I was contacted to let me know that he was sending the check. I received the Cashiers Check via Priority Mail. The amount was 1,720.00 for a 450.00 sale…. Red Flag… Before going to my bank I decided to look online and found that the ?*** Bank was legit, but the bank (on the check) had been purchased them in 09/14… Red-Flag-2 Another article revealed that the bank was no longer in business as of March 1, 2015… Text the buyer back to let him know I couldn’t cash the check and send me his address if he wants me to mail check back to him… NOT A WORD !!!!
