    send it out to your address,the check will cover your selling price and my shipper shipping charges, as soon as you receive the check please take it to your
    bank for clearance....The check is 100 % okay and will definitely clear fine for the full amount issued on it, Please negotiate the clearance with your bank

    for fast cashment,you should have the fund in 1 or two days in your account.

    Finally as soon as you have the full fund in your account please deduct your selling price and have the balance transfer to the shipper on the information

    i will forward you when is time... the shipping charges should be transfer to the shipper without no delay and all transfer charges is to be deducted from my

    money.

    Me:

    "Sounds great! please send check for 100.00 + shipping charges to my office:

    Best part is he's not referring to what I am selling

    When the check comes, make sure you tell him it got wet in the mail and the bank won't take it.

    You can sometimes get them to send 3 checks before they give up.

    Either that, or they will order a bunch of PicturePhone stuff and you guys can have a conference.

    http://www.419eater.com/ has some extensive scammer stories. Scammers convinced to build a sandbag shrine to some god, sending a couple twenties to get their scam money released.

    Have a free hour if you drop by. The rabbit hole runs deep.

    Nearly 10 years ago now I got bored enough to write everyone back when selling things on Craigslist. Solely in an effort to collect fake checks like this. The original goal was to get checks made out to each member of the starting line up of the Seattle Mariners. Gave up before completing the collection though.

    If anyone wants a fake check made out to Richie Sexson though - I'm your guy.

    "Hello dear seller"

    You don't even need to read the rest of the email to know it's a scam.
