Type of a scam Nigerian/Foreign Money Exchange
I had placed an ad on craigslist to sell a printer cartridge. I was contacted my a man via text, who offered me money for it. He then asked if it was okay that he sends me a check for the product, plus additional funds to pay his "movers". I told him I prefer that he take care of that separately, to which he replied "understandable". He then proceeded to send a check to my office in my name from The Bank of Nigeria. It looked like a VERY real check. My coworker called the bank and was told it wasn’t from them. More importantly, he wrote the check for over $1400.00, even though i told him not to. He kept contacting me via text to see if I received it. I contacted the ScamPulse.com and looked up the phone # online, which stated it was terrorist related. I stopped all communication with him at that point.
