A buyer has mailed me a check as a deposit on a business I am selling. Is it okay to deposit the check?

Absolutely not. This is a very common scam. If you deposit it, it will bounce and the fraudster will gain access to your banking information. No legitimate buyer will ever send you a deposit without first visiting your business and doing some due diligence.
