Write him back, get him to send you a cashiers check, then tell him it was not counter signed and get him to send another, then again and again and again till he gives up. The time and postage he spends may just stop him for screwing someone else

LOL! Mr. Melvin has been very active, here is what he sent me regarding a Cobra hangar dolly:

Mr. Melvin.

This is virtually identical to what he sent you, save for changing the item in question. I replied that the ONLY payment I will accept is a wire transfer and would need his address and phone number. I never got a reply.

I have actually received cashier checks that looked like the real deal, but when I checked with who the supposedly came from they were clearly fraudulent. These scammers will NEVER agree to you contacting them by phone - law enforcement can track their location.

What is sad is that there are those who fall for this crap.

Lots of scams aimed at the elderly too.

Many governmental programs for seniors were farmed out to foreign bidders and some of those records obviously fell into the hands of scammers. In our computer groups we repeatedly remind seniors never to engage cold callers with any personal or financial information. If you need something, call the appropriate agency. It's also prudent not to call the first Google search result. Type ssa.org into a Google search and the first AD result is likely social security, but that search might be shaped by the user. Happens on Duck Duck Go on another browser also.
