same problems in craignlist
Same thing here. Paid for item $2000 over value of item selling with the check from Aetna. Played along with them and reported to the FTC and Attorney General. They even sent me a text saying that there bank contacted mine and the money was transfered. Funny thing, the Check was on my desk and I have not turned into any bank for cashing. They were out the Fedx fee for sending me a check. Now now word from them. Sure wish that someone would stop them. Lost a sale due to holding the item for them.
Total Scammer has this number. A woman wanting to buy my $250 washer and dryer sent me a bogus check for $2,350 fromAetna Life Insurance Company, and asking I send her Money Gram of $2,000.00. I have been plauying along allowing her/him to exhaust their efforts on me, but would like to report them as Internet Fraud and now mail fraud and bad check writing and maybe check counterfiting.
when i call this number it is a google # this person is sending fake checks out to people i just receved a check for 1850 dollars that is fake ..
