Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
We put an item on Craig’s List for sale. Received a response from these people wanting the item at the price we listed with a $50 bonus if we would not sell it to anyone else. We felt it was a scam, but wanted get information that could be used against them. They sent a check for $1500 over the price. They said that was the fee for the movers. We kept in contact with our bank and knew the check hadn’t cleared yet. They texted us saying it had cleared with instructions on how to send money to a person in GA, the supposed movers. I received word the check didnz’t clear and advised them the sale would be cash only. The company the check was written from comes up with a website stating they were in business since the 1950’s. That telephone numbers listed for the business are not in service. I have a copy of the check and all emails and text messages if further action can be taken. The name we had as the contact is Victoria Matthews.
