The offer to pay full price and have an agent pick it up.
I have used RJ for 12 years and now more than ever I seem to get more and more scam texts. I have found that I have had luck sorting out the scammers by telling them they must call me from a traceable phone number. I explain that is so that I can sort out the scammers to them. If they are legit they have called me. I can only guess that the ones that do not call me are the scammers or maybe I ticked them off. but that is a risk that I will take.

If you do not list ANY phone number to call, the scammers won't text you. Make them use the Racing Junk message.

You did the right thing - the scammers tried me today.
They tried the same trick - no negotiation, will pay full price via Cashier's Check, then send a transporter to pick it up after the check has cleared.
Who does that? LOL
They used the phone number 410-200-5xx.
It's the wrong number of digits and the last two numbers were always different.

I have been told that if you play along and let them send you a check, and you deposit or cash it, you can be charged with check fraud.
