Victim Location 75019
Total money lost $6,000
Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
I placed an advt for my car. The scammer agreed to buy and sent a check for the car plus movers charges. Check was deposited and after verifying with the bank that the cash is there in my account, I sent the moving charges by money order to a different person who was supposed to take care of arranging the movers. A day later the scammer said there was a medical emergency / expenses and therefore has decided not to buy the car. He asked that I return the balance of the money by cashiers check. I did. Two days later the initial check (from the scammer) that i deposited bounced!
