Victim Location 32206
Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
On November 1, 2018 [email protected] contacted me via email regarding some burial plots my mom is selling. Their story sounded fishy, but we went back and forth for a week and finally I gave them her full name and address (she lives with me) for a cashier’s check. I never heard from them again. On December 4, 2018 my mom received a check for $2,250 via UPS. The account holder was Real Estate Market Experts LLC, drawn on Comerica Bank with a legitimate routing number, but the account number was 0123456789. The check has a watermark and other security features. The letter that accompanied it, however, was very bizarre. The UPS package was shipped from Jon Huston, Troll and Toad, 710 Pitzer St., Barbourville, KY 40906. Legitimate business, legitimate address. The address on the check was Real Estate Market Experts LLC, 8561 Quick Silver Dr., Dallas TX 75249. Legitimate residential address, not commercial.
I just received an email from the same email address about 4 burial plots I am selling.
