Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
I was recently trying to sell my truck on Auto Trader when a potential buyer said they were interested. Only after the check was in the mail did the buyer inform me that they included additional funds on the check to pay for the transportation of the vehicle. I had several questions in response to this request but never received any response. Once the check arrived, it was for nearly twice the agreed upon amount. Some other things that were off about the check is that it came from a business in San Antonio, Tx but the envelope was shipped out of Ridgeland, MS. On top of all that there were directions in the envelope asking me to confirm deposit to a google number 662-626-4176. I did not cash the check and never heard back from the buyer.
