I have a bow in the classified section, for sale, and I got a few responses. One guy was major gung ho, then I heard nothing, then a sob story about his sick wife, etc. Then I get a check for 3+ times the amount I was asking. He sent me an email saying go ahead and deposit it and send the bow, along with the extra $$.
I contacted the bank it was drawn on, and it’s counterfeit. The guys name is: Gillian Oshaughnessy, and he is not one of your scammers from Nigeria, the guy could actually write pretty well, and he even called me.
Beware! The only payment method I’m taking in the future is PayPal and a money order from the post office.
Curiously, he didn’t seem to concerned about interstate mail fraud charges, as he used the USPS to send me the check. I’ve reported him, but yeah, we all know that’s not going to do anything!
