This is the new scam going around now - Let your buyer know that you will be depositing the item in your bank and will not ship the product until you have knowledge that their check has cleared. You could also call the issuing bank and ask a few questions about the item you were given, I would give good odds that it's counterfeit, uncollected, something....
Should you find that this is a legitimate item, I would have a concern about being 'used' to 'launder' money to a SDN country - you may find your bank completing a 'watch' form on you because you are doing business in Nigeria. be very careful.
My comments are absolutely no reflection of, nor influenced by, my employer - take them at your own risk.
