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 told me he was going to give me $1,200 for my ROK helmet! What a joke.

I work for the Wire Fraud department at Bank of America, I've reported the e-mail address to our investigators, as well as forwarded this e-mail address to phishing@cc.yahoo-inc.com to have it shut down.

What a tool.
