Beware of Scammers (Everywhere)

It starts off with an email stating they like your ad and will purchase your product.

The email also requests that you remove your ad from the internet.

They say they are adding $$ for your convience then they mail you a bogus check for a large sum of money.

The instructions are that you keep your price, the extra $$ they gave you and the Western Union Fees.

You are instructed to deposit the check and send the difference to them or their pick up company immediately.

Then the check they sent you bounces and your out big dollars for this fraudulent scam.

I just had 4 different people try the same scam on an item I had listed . One even sent a check for 5 times the advertised price. I contacted the bank and they said "this bogus check will not be honored ", it will be returned and you are responsible for the total amount.

Hopefully you will not fall for this one.
