The Scam...

I had a piece of furniture for sale. I posted it on a popular website. I got a few responses. One person said he wanted it. He asked for an address where he could send a cashier's check.

I get a second note. "My secretary misunderstood me, and had the cashier's check made out for the total of my relocation budget. Can I send you the check for $2000, and have you wire me the difference (this difference being $1825)?"


lemme think about this...

I work in a bank and you would be surprised at how many people do, in fact, fall for that. One of the people that fell for that has been selling items for 10 years on that site!!! How do you spell 'scam'?
