Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
Recruits to post ads on Craigslist, once its payday, they mail a legit check for 3x the amount from Bank of America. The account number is too high for anyone but a bank to cash. Once deposited, they then request for a copy of the deposit slip and inform patrons that once the check clears, by they are to make a purchase in the amount of $x,xxx and the rest is the patrons to keep. I opened and deposited the check, it had a 7-10 day hold on it, but after 2 days the bank discovered that it was fraudulent and closed my account. When I contacted the person I was told to contact after making the deposit to confront him about this, he said that its only a scam if I don’t work for him, after I called that lie out communication ceased to exist.
