Your Scam, My Scam... still scams
Sounds like a wonderful Airstream... and sealed for shipping!
I have a check drawn on the California College of the Arts in San Francisco for $2,450.00. After contacting the California College... yes a counterfeit.
It was sent to me FedEx next day from Alexandria, Virginia... but picked up for delivery from Bradenton, Florida.
Local Police did not care. College did not care. The name on the Fed Ex form, when searched on Google, has numerous business names under a different name of Sindell, same telephone number as the shipper in Virginia. I printed out TWO PAGES... just for followup if any authority needed places to find these people.
This payment was for a technical petroleum geology book library. For professional geologists, not what kids at an orphanage would want to read... messages are taken word for word, punctuation, from several emails, which later were followed up with telephone calls for five or more days. They quit calling after a phony check would no doubt would have been returned.
I still hold the check, uncashed. This outfit from a through Google Search: Mortgages, Genealogy, Revenue, Global Programs Director, BizWiz, HotFrog, Mortgage Banking, Financial Planning, 4.5 Amazon Rating, PhD, Pro Bono Director, Financial Planning Association... and so on. Same woman's name and I have two pages of professional 'services' provided.
I NEVER responded and Caller ID of several telephone numbers and individuals leaving messages wanting their $450 overpayment. No mention ever of the 'books for orphans' as you will read at the end of this post.
... and nobody cares to even check them out. No wonder an Airstream will find some buyer that does not do their homework. Check them out through Google and I would guess Florida might come up on the search.
"Here is Orphanage & Shipping information where you will be sending the rest funds to: Stephanie Sh. Bradenton, Fl, 34207. Sincerely Yours, Julie little"
(Above: The first is where they want the $240 overpayment sent Western Union and to whom. I have a number of requests for the Western Union refund of the over payment wanted...)
