A guy recently emailed me about a tractor that I listed about 8 months ago in the classified section on this site. I let him know that I no longer had that tractor but that I did have another that I would like to sell. Anyway, to make a long story short, the guy (in another country) wanted me to accept a cashier's check (from someone else in the U.S.) for four times the amount of the sale price. Then, he wanted me to wire the difference to him within 24 hours so he could arrange "shipping". Well, we bankers don't take kindly to ripoff artists. A cashier's check can be faked just like any other check. Payment can also be stopped on a cashier's check. So, if I wired the difference to him within 24 hrs --- I'm up a creek because I'm holding a (probably) dead check! The guy went by the name of George Anderson. His email is georgeandersontradin@yahoo.com I told this guy how I would accept payment, (the EXACT sale amount wired directly into my account) and I haven't heard back from him. I just thought that I would let everyone know about it. Bryan

I had the same thing a week or so ago. The scam is so transparent that I didn't bother to post about it, just deleted it. Here is another good one that came in the same guise, in responce to an old ad here. "I like to use direct banking" "Send you bank account number(s) for a safe, no risk direct deposit ito your account"

I outa wipe "I'm stupid" off my forhead I guess?
