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.
firstname.lastname@example.org Selena Williams to me show details Aug 23 (4 days ago) How are you doing today,please am very sorry my secretary posted the payment promptly yesterday ,but there was a little problem which i guess we can handle with care because i wouldn't want this to delay the sale.Mistakenly issued an over payment, meaning for your item and other items bought together at other locations. All you do once you have the payment is to DEPOSIT the check in your bank,ask your bank when the funds will be available but i guess after 24-48hrs then withdraw the fund deduct the money for your item plus $50 for the running and inconvenience .Kindly wire the excess fund to my mover via western union or walmart or money gram so that the mover use the excess on the payment to pay for the other items and various shipments at other locations . Please notify me immediately you got the check so i could give you the shipping agent information. Here is the tracking number 797438146560 Thank you for your great trust and honesty
