This is a pretty commons scam. I haven’t seen it before with machines, but I see it all the time when I try to rent out a room. They actually get pretty funny with the scammers trying to make up ever more elaborate explanations for why they are sending you a check for too much money and wanting you to send money back.

Pretty much your best bet is to never accept a check when selling something. Any check can be canceled within 2 weeks of being deposited in a bank account.
