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.

I have also been recently contacted by this person. I thought it was weird but my wife confirmed it was a scam so I looked it up and found this. Thanks for posting.

And, I too have been contacted by this person (Ashley Altic). I was sent a check for $2500.00 for my item that I was asking $800.00 for. They wanted me to deposit the check and send the balance to a 3rd party. Not going to happen.
