In the US, cashing them is not a good idea because you WILL be charged with fraud by the banks.
I wouldn't mess with them, it would only create huge problems for you (that is IF they even cashed it for you).
Passing bad checks is not a good thing.
The idea is for you to cash the bad check, wire the scammers most of it and you are supposed to keep some for your troubles. You take the heat while
they enjoy the untraceable income. It isn't very well conceived because most big banks are onto the scams and wont cash them, but if you did this in
your own bank, you may get in trouble.
I think the Russian mafia is now trying to take the Nigerian's slice of the pie these days.
