 MONEY SCAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I want to warn you all that The  MONEY SCAM Is still out there.Dont be a fool for The Cashiers Check.I had a guy wanting to buy some Visor TVs for his car and this is the e-mail i got

FIRST E-MAIL:

Hi, I wish to purchase your item as listed on the advert and I just want to let you know that I need it. Just let me know your final price you wish to offer it for sale for me so that I can buy it from you immediately. I await your quick response on this issue. Best Regards.

----------------------------------------------------------------

Sounds Good Don't It,But Read The Second One I Got

----------------------------------------------------------------

SECOND E-MAIL

Goodday Thanks for the Responce have aggreed to pay for this item with a certified cashier cheque
 
 
 
The Cashiers cheque that  will be issued will include
Tthe money for the sales of  your item + My shipping cost.
Inregards to shipping. I have a shipping agent who  would take good care of the shipment. You are required  to get an instant cashing of the  cashiers cheque in your bank account immedaitely you  recieve it or cash it immediately in a check cash  point and deduct the funds for the sales of your item.
 
And have the excess funds sent to My Shipping Company Through (Western Union Money Transfer) in  order  to come for the pick up of the item. All neccesary transfer papers will be dully signed by my  shipping Company ACCOUNTANT  on behalf of me when the shipping  agents comes for the pick up of the item.  I will be willing to entertain more of your questions  that might arise and If you really show williness and would really want to sell this item.
 
Please  provide your
 
Name You Want on the check
Street Address,City,Zip Code
Mobile Numnber#
 
so  that I can have it forwarded to my Accountant for  immedaite payment
Best Reagrds.

------------------------------------------------------------

Ok first of all my mom didnt raise no fool.Secondly, the spelling and wordings are horrible,Third,don't ever take a cashiers check from anyone-especially if they claim to have someone special pick up orders and have their own shipping company.And finally,I would advise all to be on the lookout.   AND NO,THEY DIDN'T GET ME FOR MY MONEY OR MERCHANDICE.

the scam is with that person that contacted you and the western union agent. Thank God you didn't go ahead and have them send you the check because they could've stolen your ID. All they'd need is your full name and address...a lot of times scammers don't even need your SSN anymore. They can steal your identity or create another one using your name and address.

One of my friends almost cashed one of those checks which was flagged by the FBI. His bank teller was nice enough to tell him that the check was fake before actually going through to cash it. But his situation was dealing with scammers on those online dating sites where girls would claim to be stranded in Nigeria or Africa and need some poor sap to cash checks for them and then send the money through western union.
