Classifieds and scammers

Postby boatair » Sun Oct 23, 2016 6:03 pm

I hope none of you guys posting stuff for sale are falling for these jackasses texting with a LA area code offering to send a "Certified Check" and waiting for the check to clear "your" bank and then their mover will come pick it up. Scum Bags!

Certified checks are way easier to counterfeit that money is. If someone offers you a cashier's check or a certified check, tell them "no," but you will accept a wire transfer. Scammers hate that, won't do it and you likely won't hear from them again.
