Remember:

  • DO NOT do business with anyone who offers to send you payment for a higher amount than your selling price with the understanding that you'll send back the balance.

  • Be suspicious of anyone claiming to be acting on behalf of a "client" or another "customer".

  • Be suspicious of anyone claiming to be from Nigeria or West Africa

  • If you agree to accept a check payment, then do not send anything, gear or "change" before the check cleared. And be careful, if you manage to clear a fraudulent check then you may be liable for the damages if the bank finds out later. Make sure your bank authenticates the check.

  • If it sounds to good to be true, then it probably is.

He tried to get me as well. My last e-mail to him...

No..they said the check is a forgery sent to me from some fucking loser trying to rip me off. Sound like anyone you know? I've known all along you were a fucking con man. I just wanted to see how much time and money I could make your sorry ass spend wasting it on me. FUCK OFF ASSHOLE

Yeah, This guy is a total puke. I tried to deposit his check and it actually cleared for 1 day then the bank rejected it. Oh well, didn't cost me any money. That loser actually spent a few bucks on USPS priority mail tho. Funny, how the hell is this idiot making anything?
