Newmont Elko Warehouse

Received an UPS envelope for 2000 from Suntrust bank and Newmont Elmo Warehouse! Scam! I knew it was from the Rockstar Decal text I received to put the decal on my car!
These Fraud Scammers should get a life and get a real job instead of trying to take from hard working people!

Adrienne – Jul 18, 2020

I came home to a ups envelope with a check and note in side. Of course i know it’s fake. I hate people who try to scam other people trying to make it day to day.

Lee – Jul 18, 2020

I received a check today by UPS $2500 but once I opened it I knew it was fake. I Googled the Newmont Elko Warwhouse since that was the sender. When finding this page I just realized it’s because I put in my information inregards to an ad/text for a “job position” to have an item decal placed on my car to advertise and bring up sales…beware of things online that seem too good to be true. I know we are all in bad/uncertain places right now but keep your heads up.

Almost got got. I’m mad I sent my name and address but thank God I listened to the Holy Spirit warning me. The entire process just seemed off to me. They even used God’s name to carry out their wicked doings talking about they’re a “good Christian family…”

The same company sent me a package with a note and check inside saying don’t cash until you text this number. Include your name, check no, and how much the check is for. Since I text them they have been really adamant about me cashing the check. I didn’t not cash the check and I did not respond to them letting them know I cash it because they require I picture of the deposit slip. Since then they are still sending me messages even trying to threaten me.

I posted an add on Craig’s List for 100 + year old Limoges china. A Micheal Benson ([email protected]) expressed interest and asked me to remove the posting so he could trust that I wouldn’t take his money and not deliver. Note the first name spelling which made me suspicious but his English was very poor so I just wasn’t sure. However after many emails about packing and shipping the china, a UPS Express package arrived today with a check for $3200.00. That’s way above my asking price even including the cost of packing and shipping the items. The package return address is Newmont Elko Warehouse and the PNC Bank check account name is Premier Packaging Inc. in Louisville KY. The check looks authentic so I’m very glad I found this site. The appearance of the package and the check are the same as posted by other people. Thanks everyone for taking the time to post your experiences.

Katherine – Jun 19, 2020

I received a check from a wrapping company for $1982. I I went on Google and I researched it and it all came back good. The routing number was right the company was right and the account was right to it even have the account number on the website so I decided to take it over to my bank and as of right now it’s sitting at my bank they said I was able to get $200 cash so I took it and I went pay the rest of my rent. I really thought it was a legit company and evidently it’s not I have no way of knowing how to get a hold of them by a phone number I tried. So when I went to look up my stuff on my online banking I said the check was on home no problem there you know it takes up to 10 days to you know what a check get cashed to 3 to 10 and then it said reverse check deposit in my online banking so I started researching a little closer and I came across the envelope and found the address and then the left hand corner of course and this is where I ended up also so I got duped

Joe – Jun 18, 2020

Got same thing in UPS envelope looked official. Glad I called bank first they confirmed it was a scam. Searched address and came to this page. So glad I didn’t fall for it. Wish police in NV. Could do something about this. People be ware of them. They are not nice people!

Devin – Jun 18, 2020

I got a text from a company requesting wrap around advertising. First check came – $19050.50 several red flags went up. I called the bank. NOT A VALID CHECK! I did not cash it. Then I received another text asking why I didn’t deposit it. I replied FAKE. HE SENT ANOTHER ONE $3900.00. Also fake.

Please do not put those checks in your bank account it is a scam. I got one today and I knew it was a scam by the way the letter was typed. The check came from Newmont Elko Warehouse in the amount of $3650.00 and was told to go to the bank and deposit it right away and it will take 24 hour for the check to clear and get a $200.00 Amazon gift card and take 500 out for me and 50 for gas and the rest I am to pay the people that is coming to wrap my car from Basket Robbing Icecream. Everyone I know that it is hard sometimes but if we can just keep the faith God will make away. Please be careful and be safe. Angelia T

I just received a check from this company saying it is payment in regards to the Dr.Pepper car wrap advertisement campaign that I applied for . It also says to text them my full name check amount and check # before depositing this check .Also says Don’t do anything with the check until the check has been confirmed. It’s not right for people to scam others especially us single moms that struggle every day , we get things like this delivered by UPS so we think it’s great news just to be let down.

I posted an item on Craig’s List and received an e-mail from someone claiming to be Gavin Lawrence. The following is a copy of the e-mail: I got your information, I will love to inform you that i will be adding additional payment with the check which meant for the mover who will be coming for the pickup at your location also add additional $50 for holding the Item for me…….. Thank you

Another e-mail sent: How are you doing today? Please be informed that the payment was mailed out to you already and here is the FedEx tracking

delivery time which the check will be deliver To you Today, Once you
have the check today, Get it deposited into your account, it will take

payment for the mover included with the check sent to you, In order
for my mover to pickup my new 2 vehicle I already bought at a location
close to you including the item am buying from you. Withdraw the rest
funds and have it send to my mover so that they could come down to

By this time I’m thinking this is smelling really fishy and wrote to him the deal was off.

Then I get a UPS pouch from:
Newmont Elko Warehouse, 4218 Ruby Vista Dr. #200, Elko, NV. 89801

Having concluded this was a SCAM I was intent on returning the UPS pouch to Newmont Elko Warehouse. As a last resort in trying to make sure I was sending the pouch back to the correct address I looked it up on the internet and up comes this Scam Reporting Website. Low and behold here are case after case describing very similar situations where innocent people have wasted their time and effort just like me. I have lost so much time, energy and sleepless nights worrying that someone would show up and create even more trouble. Fret not folks it’s another SCAM praying on hard working people during a very hard time.

Krista – Jul 01, 2020

I just got a scam check in the mail too. These people are ruthless. I didn’t give my direct phone number because I was skeptical. First “she” wanted to pick up the item and then later “she” said movers would come get it and get the remaining balance. What? I’m mad that I put my name and address on their but that’s all “she” really has. I think the same person tried to scam me again using a completely different service. It’s unbelievable.

Lindsay – Jun 11, 2020

My father, who has been struggling with working. I saw his mail and this check for $4,500 and could tell by everything in the package that it was a fake. I’m so glad I caught it before my dad could take it in. Makes me ill what people will do to rob others

This blowhard offered $500 a week to have decals for an energy drink put on my vehicle, and would “pay for up to three months”. When the bogus check came, I was to deposit it and take the first week’s pay leaving $4050 for “detailers to install and uninstall the decals”. Well of course no one in their right mind would charge that. So I googled the first phone number he texted from and it turned out to be “the best female escort in Atlanta” and then I googled the warehouse where the check came from and found this site. Oh, and the check had the name “Peninsula” in the logo and “Pennisula” in the typewritten name. TOTAL SCAM

Hello my name is Rodielson and today I received a cashier’s check for $ 8,930.00 from Newmont Elko Wharehause. I made an advertisement on POSHMARK, a luxury dress, and a person got in touch by message (Lan Tim), email: [email protected], Cell: +1304 220 8618, where we started a negotiation but immediately accepted and offered an extra $ 100.00 to guarantee the deal and withdraw the offer. After 2 weeks without contact, a message arrives from Lan Tim himself, warning me that the check had arrived at my house. I was out of the house and I returned to check. In fact, the check had arrived, but with an extra amount. I went to the bank immediately to confirm the check and was told it was a scam. The scammers contacted me still wanting to know if I had already deposited the check. I informed him of the falsehood and the coup, even so he still keeps contacting me. What do I do in this case. Where can I report? Police? In the bank? Where? This site helped me a lot and not being a victim of these scammers anymore !

I just received a fake check in the mail. The buyer contacted me through posh mark wanting a dress I put up for sale. Emailed me instead of going through the app asking for an address, number and full name. I asked for 90$ after they offered to pay more if i held the dress for them. The woman who was contacting me said her daughter was in the hospital and she sent me extra money of $1,500 that meant to go to the hospital billing. Good thing the bank was closed because I was about to deposit the amount due and I had told the women she could trust me. The bank was closed, I told her that i would try later. Then something was off. Nagging and nagging to deposit it to an atm and send a deposit slip back to her. I’m glad I did not because I could lose a lot of money.

Buyer agreed to purchase a personal item on Craigs list. Then sent a check for much (thousands) more than the agreed price. I was then asked to cash the check and pay the extra to the movers. He said it was extra because the “movers” were going to pick up other items elsewhere. This would have required me to front the money to “movers” and give my item to the movers while the check cleared. Not a risk I was willing to take.

craigslist ad for a Harley Davidson Trike Kit (made by Richland Roadster), within 1-2 days I got a text from an email address – [email protected] – wanting to buy the kit. It seemed fishy, and Craigslist warns for scams like this. Especially receiving Cashier’s Checks or like. The Ad was for $3500. When I responded with name, address, and cell, I got another address: [email protected] Strange all the way around. Whoever this is reply was wanting to send an additional $50 for taking the ad down, which I haven’t done yet. Also, I said USPS regular mail would be fine. There’s a $9,550.85 Cashier’s Check from Bank of America arrived today (04/14/2020) about a week after the initial reply… Not even going to try to cash it! Thanks for advising and I’ll respond to FCC, Craigslist, etc., to help stop this crime. Yeah, it’s definitely an attempt to steal, destroy, and commit fraud.

I respond great I am willing to negotiate price if that is what you would like. He responds know I’m going to add an extra $50 to the total price of 290 as you take off the ad from the app when you get the check deposit it and my movers will come and get the purchased item as they have other items to pick up from the area. I responded with the information that he needed to send the check. I received the check and a text message saying that the check is for over $2000 And that I was to take out the money that was for me and the rest will go to the movers. (Keep in mind this is a necklace) I responded that I am not going to continue with this transaction I have changed my mind I’m going to send the check back to you it’s under and if anybody shows up to my house I’m going to take a picture of the delivery person as well as their license plate. Please don’t fall for the scam it is already nerve-racking I hope nobody else does the same thing! Please be safe!

There was this lady who posed on Poshmark asking to buy one of my dresses. She proceeds to tell me to contact her via email. She begins to tell me that it was her husband’s secretary will write the check n send it to me. I thought it was just questions about the dress n all and I thought it was weird that she wanted to send me a check in the mail that was supposed to be for daughters “medical” bill n how important it was. She told me that once I received it to take out the amount then return the check which was sketchy. Then she proceeded to text me all night about receiving it. Thank goodness I had a friend that works in the bank that told me it was a scam n not to cash the check. Although it’s disappointing that I post a sale cause of these kinds of people but I’m glad that I didn’t lose a bunch of money.

Someone UPSed a checked to him from the Newmont Elko Warehouse 4218 Ruby Vista Dr. #200 Elko NV 89801 and then called to say they see the check arrived. He might have cashed the check except it was for $870 more than he was asking for the used desk.

Posted a set of automotive wheels through Craigslist on 2/28/2020. Received message from 707-243-8178 that they are would like to buy the wheels. UPS delivered a cashier check on 3/20. The check is from Navy Federal Credit Union and looks legitimate. The check amount is $2730. I was selling the wheels for $350. The buyer told me to keep $500 due to the long transaction time and I was to arrange shipment with their contractor. Who will offer extra money without prompting? Also what prevent me from cashing the check and not send the wheels? They make very lousy businessperson. Very suspicious! Called the credit union to validate the check. They confirmed the account number is not validated. The check is supposedly from Scott Morgan. The return address on the UPS envelop is: Newmount Elko Warehouse, 4218 Ruby Vista Drive, Elko, NV 89801. Google map shows the business as Cashman Equipment Parts, not Newmount. Sometime the scammer uses 469-213-7156 as an alternate number. Before accepting any transactions, please verify, verify, verify!

Then read her the riot act for being young (24) and gulible. We called bank, pulled check from her account, and closed account. SCAM! Never again. I told her EBay, where both buyers and sellers are protected via PayPal. Where is the law? Shut these a***s down.

Next day I get an email from a completely different email ([email protected]) basically continuing on the convo from the previous email. This is the email –“Thanks for getting back to me, I’m satisfied with the price and the condition on the list, kindly withdraw the advert from list and considered it sold. I will add extra $70 with the original price while you remove the ad., My husband will overnight a cashier check drawn from a local bank and i will make the pick up arrangement as soon as the check clears and you have your cash
I would have come and take a look and purchase with cash, but my work frame {event coordinator} is tight. So, I’ll need you to provide me with the following information to overnight the Payment.
Name to be on the payment…
Address to mail the check to…
City, state and zip code …
Final Asking price…
Cell phone # to text you on …
The check will be overnight to you asap and deliver to you within 48hours. Thanks”–

Today I recieved a check from UPS and this email from “Mable”– “Good morning, how was your night ? the payment will deliver to you today and here is the tracking number ( 1Z 426 E93 01 4576 6384 ) via UPS. Once you receive the payment, you are to go ahead and deposit it and deduct your payment so that I can email you pick up arrangements and mover information that will come down for the pick up once the check cleared. Looking forward to hear from you soon.
Thank You!”
Since then I’ve gotten a few text messages from this “Mable” wanting to know when I will be depositing the check and it would be easier to deposit it with mobile deposits. After I opened the check I noticed the different names on the envelop and the check I got a little curious about it and went looking… it all led me here… Glad I didn’t just deposit the check and get screwed over…

I also received a check from the newmont Elko warehouse for over $4100. When I googled the name on the package, this is where it took me. I had put an ad on Craigslist for some speakers and a guy by the name of Joshua replied saying he wanted the speakers and he was going to send me a cashier’s check for the amount I requested. I was suspicious about the check because nowhere on it was his name, and it was for almost twice the amount I was asking. He gave his self away when he texted me today and told me he had noticed the check was delivered today.

Stacey –

My husband was sent a check for $2050.00 and was told the same story as all the others. Deposit the check and then send a portion to them for some sticker or wrap to be placed on his truck and he told him that he decided he didn’t want to go through with it and to cancel this they still sent the check.

This just happened to me. I have a purse on Poshmark and they sent a check for $1985 for a $650 purse. Check from planters bank with Christian County Grain as the check writers. This account was closed according to CCG. They are supposed to come pick up the bag and the cash money left over.

Jacquelyn –

I received information a couple of weeks ago stating that I could get paid approximately $500 a week to advertise for Monster Energy drinks. I had sent an email requesting more information and did not talk with them after that until today when I received a check in the mail for $3,661.81 with no note or explanation. The UPS envelope stated it came from Newmont Elko Warehouse in Elko NV and the check was from FedEx Payroll services? I realized I had received an email back regarding the Monster energy advertising and they stated that they sent the check and wanted me to deposit the check and take $3,100.00 out to wire to the company that was going to come out to wrap my vehicle… This is a complete SCAM!

Carly –

Funny how my check looked exactly like yours, [censored]

Seth –

Same thing just happened to us. They wanted us to advertise Monster drinks on our company vehicles. When we got the information with the tracking number and everything we tried to contact them to find out exactly where they were delivering the check to. We called UPS and they couldn’t tell us. We even asked the lady Debra Carter who was supposedly our POC if we could call her and she originally said “Hold on. Let me Check. We tried to call her several times from two different numbers but got no answer. Her number is 6464553369.

Ok on March 10 I was selling a bike on OfferUp for $375 I was texted by a guy named Alex (later he told me his full name was Alex Montayo) he told me he was interested and to text this number +14305620300 I knew something was off when he said he wouldn’t be able to pick it up himself but will have mover’s come for it because “he had them picking other stuff up around my neighborhood”… All and all same story as the rest he sent more money-($1850)… I was told to deduct the payment for the bike and said I had to pay the mover’s the left over money through cash app or zelle I asked 3 times for the mover’s name and finally got this response…”Here is the mover zelle email to have the funds $1425 sent to [email protected]
Cynthia Hackman”.. I knew it was 100% a scam after that but still I played along… Today I received the check with a company check and no name of Alex Montayo… The address on the package was from Newmont Elko warehouse 4218 Ruby Vista Dr #200 Elko nv 89801… his check looked fake I didn’t have to call the bank on the check because I knew it was fake and I have never heard of this bank here in Florida (1st national Bank and trust of Ardmore)… Please be cautious with this fraud… I even went as far as asking for at least a picture of him and his name on an ID to prove I was speaking to an Alex Montayo of course he said he couldn’t do it…

I posted a pair of heels on Poshmark and a lady told me she was sending me a cashiers check for my asking price plus an additional $70 for holding them… she stated that she had “Movers” that will be in my area and I’m supposed to immediately put the check in my account in the amount of $1,328.20. I’m supposed to keep the $120 for the heels and then give the remaining 1,208.20 to the “movers” I asked her to call me directly and she said she was hearing impaired! I told her she can just pay for the heels through the site and I would send the heels directly to her (Makes more sense Right?!) I asked her who the “movers” were and she told me once I deposit the check then she will give that info! I started getting suspicious from the start! Just saw this site and I have the EXACT ENVELOPE and CHECK! The check arrived today 3/13/20.

Karl –

A “Scott Morgan” tried to get me as well for a wheel chair for a dog for 250. Then his name was Luke. Offered 50$ extra to hold it for a day or two. Then sent check and I looked up address in Nv which brought me to this blog. Thank you guys! I want to take this guy down!

Veronica –

I got the same envelope and check today but a different bank and amount

Bridget –

Really close to what I got too. Different info and amount on check.

Martha –

Same scam story that others have posted. Contacted me about an item I was selling on Craigslist, mentioned that they couldn’t meet in person and would send a check. It started to sound odd when the individual mentioned having me deal with their movers so I told the person to cancel the check. Still received the fake check in the mail and shredded it. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE FOLKS.

I was selling my 1967 Mustang on Craigslist for $9000.00. The email came from Steven Jozef Barks email address [email protected] He couldn’t come look at it in person but he wanted to buy it and would send me a Bank Check. I received the Cashier’s Check today 3/10/2020. The return label is from Newmont Elko Warehouse and the Cashier’s Check is from California Sheet Metal Works in El Cajon, CA The check was for the amount of $15,000.00 drawn on UnionBank with no Bank Address. He wanted me to deposit the check and pay the Transporter $6,000.00. I knew something was wrong so I contacted California Sheet Metal Works and they told me the check was a fraud. I was the 10th caller already this morning. He’s scamming cars, boats, trailers, camera equipment,etc. Unfortunately people that called her were already scammed by him(them). I can’t wait till he texts me back so I can tell him to [censored] OFF.

Melissa –

Scam alert – Received a check for $3900 to pay for a craigslist posting of only $1000. The “extra” was for the movers to come and pick up the item sold. I called the bank on the check and was told it was fake. I also called the number (901-261-0467) on the text I received and no one answered.

Chelsea –

I have an ad on Craigslist selling a sofa for $300 dollars. I received a check on the amount of $2,900.00 from Joel Alexander who asked me to deposit the extra amount into his bank account.

Ernest –

I just received one of these bogus checks. I put an ad on Craigslist to sell an old vehicle.

The name used Lena Hall, phone 917-409-4386

Received check for $4850.67, well over my asking price. I must say she was persistent, still sent it after I told her that I must have a check drawn on a local Bank and I would have the Bank call the account holder to verify that they issued it to me.

The government needs to do more to catch these THIEVES or educate the public. I hate to think that some people actually fall for this crap.

Brad –

Just got one of those checks in the mail I’ve had multiple emails threatening me with the FBI if I don’t cash it

Brianna –

This morning I found a UPS folder on my door step, It had a short letter and a check.
You do not have to be smart to see it is a fake. Then I get a message with the routing number of the UPS folder asking me to verify that I had the item. Then I got an email with the same tracking number and a story about secret shopper at Walmart… Also Fake. What will they try Next? PLEASE DO NOT EVER answer such a scam !

Nothing new to add, except I was selling a $300.00 table on craigslist, and they send me over 10k

Brett –

We were selling a vehicle…they overnighted a counterfeit check(Navy Federal Credit Union) and requested that we send $9000.00 to their “shipper” and then once the check clears they will come and get the vehicle…but wanted the 9K first. We of course went straight to Navy Federal who confirmed the check was counterfeit. We have now contacted the Sherriffs office they are on the way to make a report because the amount of the counterfeit check was 24K.

Kurt –

Received 4k check and told scammer I never received it (I did :). He sent me another check and I told him bank is asking for 2 forms of ID. He asked why and I told him it was something about fingerprints on the check and check fraud and FBI interest. Never heard from him after that. Scammer called himself Anthony Adams / 574-622-2744

Once they get back to me. I told him I let him no about the money. Now he not respond to me no more. Cause I pulled his card and knew it was a scam.

Frederick –

The same happened to me on Offer Up. The guy said his name was Richard and phone number 863-438-1415. I listed furniture for 1400.00 The check was from Law office of Yuriy Moshes PC in Brooklyn but the check was shipped from Newmont Elko Warehouse in NV. I told him his check was fake and I would not be dealing with him. He said he would call the FBI so I said go ahead, please please call the FBI. I did not know if I should report to local police but someone above said FTC so I will report there.

Jessie –

Our company checks were forged and have been sent to many people who have listed items for sale on CraigsList. Each person received checks for more than the amount of the item listed. The forged checks are completely accurate down to the signature; therefore, when the victim receives the check, the bank recognizes it as being a real check and attempts to clear it. This gives the fraudster more time to have the victim pay for upfront shipping. After the victim pays the moving company or shipping company, the deposited check bounces, and the fraudster is not heard from again. Here’s the phone number of the fraudster: 678-682-7039. Light his phone up and give him a hard time.

Jason –

These guys continue to send victims our forged checks. About 5 per day are being deposited. . The account is real but our controls won’t allow the checks to clear. I’ve been trying to contact the victims, as I can see their name and address on the deposited checks. . With a Google search I’ve been getting some contact numbers. I

Angela –

Same here. Got a fake check sent from that same Warehouse. Their phone number is:

Please harass this guy too. I will message your guy some love as well 🙂

Valerie –

He has already blocked me as I had a few choice words to say about his mother.

Jacquelyn –

This fraudster is using this phone number for many active frauds as of today, 2/27, so if you blow up his phone with texts and phone calls, it really is going to affect his ability to rip people off.

Tried to sell shoes on Poshmark and they said they accidentally sent me my money with the money for their daughter. They wanted me to keep $200 and send them $780. They were very sketchy and so I looked everything up and found all of these stories that were exactly like mine.

Haley –

Got the same but my check was over 3500 w a guys name on a letter named James A Fostor

Jillian –

Got my first check today and not long afterwards a text telling me I needed to cash the check keep my part and send the rest of the cash to the technician that would be out to my house on Tuesday. I politely text him back that there was not enough time for me to get the check cleared and have the money by then. I also told him I didn’t think it was a good idea to send anyone cash and I didn’t receive an address as to where to send it. He just text back that he would look forward to hearing from me on Monday. He is in for a surprise but I’m going to play along until the end. LMAO I just hate this for people that have fallen for it. I’m a single mother and it would have been nice to have the extra money but knew it sounded way too good to be true. I thought it was hilarious that whom ever I was texting actually believes I will cash that kind of check and just hand over that kind of money. The check is for $3790 and I get $700. 🤥

Jason –

Guys name was James A Foster ? Lol

Same happened to me…They would wrap my SUV with the Mountain Dew logos. Knew it was a scam but kept them hooked as to where, what, when & how. Today they think I put the check for $2450.00 in my bank. They asked for my bank info., my deposit slip & such. I told them NO, not until the check clears. Mind you I know it won’t cash but string them along is kind of fun. We’ll see what tomorrow has in store for them.

Just received this check by ups and it was for me to have a logo ad put on my vehicle, this is second check I’ve received in a month. First one was to purchase gift cards. Did not fall for the scam but have been threaten daily by the ppl who sent these checks to me. Be aware ppl! They can’t do anything to you. It’s a scare tactic…

Toda, my son received a $4,000 check via UPS NEXT DAY AIR with a typed message inside that says, verbatim, “The Payment is from The Company and This Notification states that you should Text this #(302) 316-5861 to confirm this check is in the right hand and you have the check .. You are to text your Name on check and the check Number for Confirmation and Verification to this # ? (302) 316-5861

Address on the envelope was:
Newmont Elko Warehouse
4218 Ruby Vista Dr #200

I was able to locate one of the 2 people (not company) that the check references it was from and informed them. Hopefully they can do something with the information I provided them and bring these [censored] to justice!

I got one to the only thing I can think of was a scam to use my car to advertise Jones Soda and when they said to pay the guy who comes to apply advertisements and I keep the rest I knew then it was a scam, didn’t give it another thought till this check showed up today, damn i could really use the three grand but I’ll go turn it in. I’m so sick of having to wade through the scammers online to do an honest deal. Wish I could turn the tables on them now that would be fun!

Kimberly –

Also just received a check for $1,888.00 and emails requesting Walmart gift cards to pay delivery service for Bianchi bike sale for $200 off Craigslist for bike pick-up of the excess money. Suspected these texts and emails from a Vanessa Hiatt with a gmail email to be a scam… I am very glad I checked 800# to verify funds with the bank SunTrust. This check was drawn on a company: Chronos Solutions, LLC in Coppell, TX.

Address on the overnight UPS envelope was: Newmont Elko Warehouse, 4218 Ruby Vista Dr #200 Elko, NV 89801. No instructions included just the check.

I fell for the pay with a eBay card for a travel trailer it was a hard lesson and even tho it’s only money I could quit thinking [censored]ing STUPID I am. I’m a college educated woman of 64 and I thought I was pretty savvy, I’m a graphic artist and I can reproduce any logo but it’s illegal to sport a trademark not you own . But this eBay one was exactly their logo everything looked on the up and up. It wasn’t till my friend asked me if I checked it out 5 minutes after I sent $1200 bucks not to mention driving 40 miles into town to find the stupid cards that I realized I was screwed. Well I took it like a big girl but I’m fired up to figure out a way to catch these crooks at their own game, I think that if they can fool me God help the poor sucked that sends their last dollar for something they truly need and it never comes! But it taught me one thing how to pick out a scam right away. It seems to me there’s got to be a better way to make a living.

Sold Item on Craigs List and received a check (?) for more than the agreed price.
Had Communicated with two people “Erma Mason” and “Vince Centeno” via email and text…which I can provide.
They wanted me to cash it and pay shipper the balance… but the Check had PHOENIX misspelled under the company name that they were claiming to be. The envelope was marked as shipped UPS from Newmont ELKO warehouse, ELKO NV. …but I did UPS tracking and it came from Jacksonville FL.
I checked out the company on the Check and they were not aware of the item or the purchase… I texted the person that insisted that I just deposit it… and asked them questions about the Company that they claimed to be. They couldn‘t answer any questions.
I will turn over Texts, Emails, Phone numbers and names to the local authorities.

YOU ARE A GODSEND! Here’s how I handled it

Thanks for the tracking tip. Our son tried selling sneakers on the net and received a check for $1,500 above the asking price, with instructions to hold that for a shipper. The UPS return address was the Newmont Elko Warehouse but the tracker indicates it was actually sent from Leesburg, Florida. I sent all the info the FTC.

received Newmont Elko warehouse for 2,550.50. supposedly will be paid to put a wrap on my vehicle for rush energy drink for 500.00 a week. Received an email the funds have cleared and to contact them that the check has been deposited. next step in scam will be to send the 2,000 to the person that will wrap my vehicle. Then the bank will say check is a fake and presto I’m out 2000.00. Did not deposit and reported it to the federal trades commission. My problem is it seems this scam goes on and on with no justice to stop these people and people get hurt. Scammers have scammed people out of millions of dollars. It’s time to bring this to an end and bring them to justice and accountable for their actions. I am hoping with enough complaints to the FTC this can be accomplished.

Phone number (206)745-2051 attempted to send me a cashiers check for $1550 on a $50 item, instructing me to send the rest to their shipping agent. Obvious scam, I got the check from Newmont Elko Warehouse in NV. I played with them for days, eventually they blocked me when I told them I would only release the money in person to their shipping agent if come to an address I provided with the correct password.

Same MO here. Was selling something on Craigslist and woman responded with all this nonsense about sending cashiers check…paying extra $30 for me holding the item for her/him, broken English, paying the movers out of my bank account. Are you kidding me? I ripped up the check and told them I will contact the authorities. Don’t fall for this scam…although I think it is hard to actually fall for it. Makes no sense.

Hey I got a check from maybe this same woman, Jane Thomas. My check was for 1950.00. I was selling a 200.00 item on Craig’s list also. Told me to keep 30 dollars for my trouble. I knew it was a scam from the start. This check was drawn on CNB bank in Monett, Mo. but mailed from the 4218 Ruby Vista Dr. #200 in Elko, NV. I was to deposit this check, send the “movers” a M.O. for the balance. The mover is Benjamin Lynn in Baltimore. Really? I live on Long Island.

Also received a check for $1500.00 and a text message wondering why I hadn’t deposited the check yet. Beleived it to be a scam, glad I checked to make sure! Sounded like an easy job to have a decal for a sport drink on my car.

Address on the envelope was: Newmont Elko Warehouse, 4218 Ruby Vista Dr #200
Elko, NV 89801. They are very clever and make things look official!

Received text message offering me money to wrap my car with their advertising of a sports drink. Have info to get back to me. They sent a check out UPS for $3945 and a phone number to text them back to have the company that will put the wrap on. Check it out on line and had a warning out for them. Don’t cash the check.

I listed an item for sale on Craigslit and received a text message from a Rachel Austin asking me to email her to confirm it’s still available. I texted back anyway as it was unusual and received "[Auto Reply]: Please email only. Thanks"

On email she said she wanted to secure the item, she would be out of town for a little while for her daughter’s wedding and would add an extra $50 for holding it. She later emailed to say her husband’s PA made a mistake and a check is on its way with more money than due – and that it’s actually for the pick up team who are doing a few pickups in the area. Would I mind paying them out of the check? I said sure – I’d be away for a few days on business but once the check has cleared we can arrange pick up. I didn’t realise in the US that bad checks clear. They don’t in the UK.

‘Rachel’ grew impatient – emailing me for updates and berating me for not letting her know the check arrived. I repeated the schedule that I’d previously emailed about – but became aware at that time that this definitely was a scam. Her language did not match her name – she grew lazy and abrupt, and it was apparent that English was not her first language.

A check arrived for $1,980 (the item was $270), printed with a logo for ‘T.RowePrice Invest with confidence’ from State Street Bank and Trust Company, Boston, Massachusetts 02101, dated 11/4/2019. The check has a ‘scratch box’ security feature on the back which does reveal a code (04501) when scratched with a coin. The signature is pre-printed, but some may not notice that.

She chased again this morning so I’m going to go back to her now under the guise that I’m naive and a little concerned, as I’m interested to know where this will lead.

I also received a $950.00 fraudulent check from Newmont Elko Warehouse, FedEx tracking number 1Z426E930143357516. We requested a cashier’s check for bikes they say they wanted us to ship. Check drawn on Comerica Bank, Detroit check for Michigan Humane Society. Someone needs to get the Feds involved to catch these scam artists. We’ve alerted Comerica Bank, Michigan humane society and Fedex.

I got a yellow envelope from UPS on November 5th 2019 with a check in the amount of $1480.00..and nothing else I wasn’t sure why I got it I thought maybe was from a casino I play, i didn’t look at envelope until after i deposited it via mobile deposit. Only after a hold was put on check did i start questioning and doing research. I’m sure now it’s probably a fake check. I hope im not in trouble with my bank as i didn’t know at time of dep and still don’t haven’t been told yet but again after research i feel it is…

Rosa –

You will be liable for the full amount of the check. Sorry [censored] are scamming a lot of people, or trying to. A lot of the things don’t line up. I posted an item on Craig’s list, Long Island.
“Jane Thomas” contacted me from Baltimore,(?). sent a check in the amount of $1950.59 for a $200.00 item. Told to deposit the check, get a M.O. for the balance less $30.00 for my trouble and mail the balance overnight by UPS or Fedex to a “mover” in Baltimore. The check is drawn on a bank in Monett, Mo. and mailed from the Elko Warehouse, Ruby vista Dr. Elko, NV. Just didn’t add up. I played with this person for 2 days with emails just to bust their chops. I also contacted the cops.
Watch your back and your mail box.

What happened?

Correction: package shipped UPS overnight, and I just tracked it and see it was sent from Sarasota, FL! Creeps!

We got a fraudulent check from the same place delivered by fedex. They claimed to be purchasing bikes from us and we requested a cashier’s check, but received a fraudulent check drawn on the account of the Michigan Humane Society. Luckily we didn’t deposit it and ship the bikes, as we called the bank and the humane society to verify fishy check. Alert the Feds.

I placed an ad on craigslist to sell my boat. Then [censored]w*** contacted me 10/27/19. My guess is that this is a hacked Address.

10/30 I received the check by ups. for $7,500. asking price for boat was $4,500. Nothing else in package. My thinking is that no one is going to spend 7.5 K when I was asking only 4.5 K. and ship it across country.

Contents was an "official check" from Arizona Federal Credit Union P.O. Box 60070 Phoenix AZ 85082-0070. Check dated 10/08/2019. Amount of check was $4,550.24. Check was pay to order of (my name). Illegible signature. Banking code on bottom of check was "10407151" :322172797: "0000386250" Back of check very official looking with endorsement block, watermark, and information listed re security measures contained in the check. No instructions or other information in the envelope. Googled return address without much success. Called Arizona Federal Credit Union and was told this was a fake check and advised to shred it. Also was told to expect some contact that would outline "instructions" no doubt requesting payment for "fees, etc". Sure enough, later that evening a text message was received from mobile phone 707-243-8178. Transcript as follows: "Hello, I got text from the UPS that the check had been delivered to you already. Kindly get back to me for further instructions. God bless you" My response: "SCAM!" Texter response "What do you mean by scam?" My response: "Reporting this matter to TX Atty General" End of communication from texter.
