Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
Scammer contacted me via craigslist for an item I had for sale. Said he would have someone pickup the item so would include extra cash for the pickup service in the check he was mailing me. Said we could wait till check cleared. (I then figured out this was a scam and told him so via email) He said he already had sent the check. The check arrived—the item I was selling was for $600. The check he sent via Priority USPS mail service was for $2000.00! The return address he used is above. I googled the address to a private residence in Phoenix, AZ. Interesting the check is ‘remitted’ by a ‘Benjamin Hoover’ yet signed by two other unknown individuals. Also, the check is from Heatland State Bank …a PO BOX? in Redfield, SD. I still have the check and envelopes. I have NOT cashed it. —This scam can be googled on the internet.
