How long does it take for the scammers check to bounce

I got a funny feeling its one of those deals where you cash the check, it clears, you ship the bike, then the bank comes back to you and say it was a fake check and takes the money back.
My Question is: Does anyone know how long it takes the bank to come back and want their money?

It isn't as cheap as a cashiers check, but if someone is serious have them wire you the money via Western Union or use Paypal. Even then do not send money back. The FBI and Secret Service web sites say it takes two weeks for the bank to discover the counterfeit check.

Do you see anything wrong with that?

If I could save 1 person from being scammed, it would be worth it to me.
Maybe if I bring it to the authorities they could catch him.
