Thread: Got burned, almost twice

  1. #1

    Got burned, almost twice

    Received a bank check for payment and shipping costs, deposited the check, such a good forge that it cleared my bank, sent money, via Western Union, (the key), and then found check to be "altered",which the bank withdrew the funds, so out the shipping costs, the amount I really don't want to discuss. Posted another item, contacted again by a text, willing to send a bank check via USPS for more than the item, overage was for the shipper, to be sent by Western Union,phone number is a throwaway phone, be aware, these guys have tracking numbers(fake of course) and addresses, by the time you figure it out the moneys gone, called Western Union, local PD, all say it's a buyer beware case, nothing they can do, these "folks"(for a lack of a better term) are good, please be aware, got burned once,lets keep these people from picking our pockets.

    Sorry for your loss. Good you posted. That's a standard scam. I only take UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE money orders. I also do not sell to anyone who will not talk to me on the phone. Anytime Western Union or Shipper payment is mentioned, its a scam.

    Walmart money transfers are OK if you are the seller.
