 SCAM!

I think i have been scammed yall because i had a item up for sale and the person emailed me back saying theyd send me check and it will surely clear blah blah....then asked for my full name and address and all and then told me they would send me a check that was like a couple thousand more then i was selling the item for and said they are from West Africa so the shipping fee is that much. At first i didnt care and told the person to ship it and i wont send none till the check clears but now i realize that maybe it could be a scam so i tried to tell the buyer i am not selling anymore and told the buyer the deal was off but they kept syaing that the check will surely clear just get it cashed and there will be no problems and they wanted to have their shipping company pick up from my house. Then i told the buyer my item was stolen because i didnt want to be bothered anymore but the buyer started saying that they dont know what im doing but they had a lawyer friend and said for me to deduct 300 from the check and send the rest back to him and if i dont like it theyd take me to court. Does this sound like a scam to yall out there?

Just do a google search and type 'scam, cashiers check, africa, spain, overseas' and you'll find that your case is just that, another scam. Don't pay attention to those threats. Tell him you will be sending the check to your local police or better yet, the fbi. good luck

there's also a scam with people claiming they're trapped in nigeria/africa on those online personals.  they try to get you to send them money through western union or they want your name and address so that they can send you bogus checks for you to cash and send the cash back to them.  The western union agent that they use is also in on the scam.

One of my friends almost got picked up by the FBI for trying to cash in those checks, but one of the bank tellers was nice enough to let him know that those checks were flagged and bogus

 I am selling my amplifier on carstereo.com and got the same type of email

I received an email on an amplifier im selling and the person trying to buy told me he would send me a check all he needed was my address and phone number.  He also stated that he would have his shipping company pick it up. Does this sound like a scam too. If so how would i know who i can trust.

NEVER do any deal with someone saying theyre overseas or with them dealing with checks...always go through paypal or some form of safer means...
