Exclamation 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.

Thanks
Bob L.

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.

I’m getting the same responses to my recent ad. What I can’t figure out is how this benefits the scammer. The offer is that pickup will only happen after the check has cleared.
