Scam Alert

Post by Misfit » Thu October 23rd, 2008, 4:57 pm

I had heard about this last month at a fraud seminar but now the boss's daughter just got approached and fortunately didn't fall for it.

Selling items on Craig's List, Ebay, etc. A bid is made and accepted and they send a check for more than the amount agreed upon with a note to please wire the balance back. Don't do it! Once you wire the money no one is going to be able to help you get it back. They like to target the young ones who aren't quite so savvy.
