    Wow, congrats lol. Didn't know that scam had come back. Anyone foolish enough for that is probably deserving of it.

    That scam never left. What amazes me is that people still fall for it and the others.

    This one was attempted to be perpetrated on me several years ago and still goes on. I had a Subaru for sale on Auto Trader online. I got an e-mail wanting to buy the car and ship it overseas. The sender stated he was getting a large payment for another transaction and would forward the total to me which was much larger than my asking price. I should cash the cashier's check and give the difference to his "agent" when I turned over the title. Never haggled over the price at all. Being I was suspicious on why someone would want to export a 10 year old Subaru and the rest, I contacted a friend in the auto squad at the PD. He never heard of any scams like this at the time and referred me to an FBI contact. I hit paydirt on the next call and was subsequently referred to someone at the Secret Service as they got the job of investigating this scam and is was a biggie. People lost their cars and money as the cashier's checks were bogus and usually didn't get discovered for several days after it was cashed when the bank called you and gave you the bad news. They hold you responsible and there is little one can do at this point. The e-mails came from overseas and were just out of reach of our authorities. I know for fact that this scam is still active so if you list something for sale online, be aware. They try this on eBay listings also. I know of a local woman who lost her merchandise and owed the bank several hundred dollars for the bad check as a result. It even made the local news.
