Default Scamming a scammer...lol

I recently had an LT1 engine for sale on Craigslist, and was contacted by a gentleman with the typical greed scam, where he agreed to send me an overcharge of money in return for my product and I was to keep $100 for my troubles and send him back the difference in cash..lol

I honestly dont know how people fall for this type of shit but I played along and had him send the Fed ex to my work address...The funny thing is, Im a police officer and had him send it to the police station..lol!!! Dumbass Nigerian scammer.. If nothing else comes of it, at least I cost him $30 sending a fed ex overnight package to my work..Ha ha!!! I should send him back a package of dog crap just to be a wise guy..

Here is his last email:

the payment today. Here is the FEDEX tracking number for the

Here is a picture of the check, he actually sent it to the name MIKE HUNT (MY CUNT)....I dont know how people fall for this cause the scammers say they are out of the country, yet manage to mail a check from DC, that drafted from a company in California...I guess blind greed drives people right into this scam..




On a side note I think I found a new part time hobby, giving scammers the runaround.. :P

Is the check good? If it is and you get your money then it isn't a scam.........??? You just may have a new part time job.

BTW MIke Hunt is the Sheriff of Aiken County SC. :shock:

I aint putting that check in my account...The scam is that you deposit it and while it has a hold on it you send the guy the extra money back and then 5 days later the check comes back fake or stolen..And guess who is out the money..You are...I still dont understand how people fall for this one.

I know, but that check has to go back to somebody. No way would I send anything for 15 +days to make sure it is good. If it's not good that amount is a felony.

Also Mission Drive in Theatre Co. has been around since 1958.
