They cash your check, your bank finds out a few weeks later the check you deposited was never any good, your account goes in the red and now you have to pay back your bank for the check you just wrote them.

The idea is to game the timing of funds availability and actual verification as funds or a part of them are usually available before everything is setteled and verified.
