And lo! the plot thickens

So I took that big ass check to Wachovia yesterday, where they couldn't really tell me anything, other than to be wary.
But today, I went to Bank of America, where as soon as they ran it through the check reader they agreed it was fraudulent. They kept the check and took down my information (copy of driver's license and phone number).

So I sent this to "Jessica":

I took your check to the bank, and they said that it was fraudulent. They have notified the FBI and Interpol. All of your emails have been collected as evidence, and your IP address has been logged.
Basically, that means you probably won't make it on the flight this weekend, so you can either make alternate arrangments for payment and transportation, or I will continue looking for a roommate who has valid documentation and finanical assets.

Awesome. I love it. I wonder if they'll actually get into a mess of trouble for this??

I love how "you won't make it on the flight this weekend" is even necessary. I'm pretty sure that SOMETHING would "happen" and she wouldn't be able to come, and therefore she'd need a refund. "I'll leave you $2000 for your troubles, but if you could please send me the other $1000, that'd be great"

Ugh.

I just read it again and realized you lied to her. The FBI doesn't get involved in Nigerian scams, I'm guessing.

Yep
The only part of what I said is that the bank said it was fraudulent. They may or may not have involved the FBI because of the felonious nature of bank fraud. The rest was more to put the fear of god in "her" that there are consequences and repercussions.
