I was offered a modeling job by Marvin Charcoal and I had accepted it. He had sent me a check to send to the wardrobe store and my part payment. He wanted me to deposit the check and let it clear, then withdraw the money and send it via western union. He harassed me for a week through emails and texts, between 20 to 30 a day. He was extremely rude and used capital letters way to often. He also did not use correct English and spelled everything wrong (which is common in scams) and he wouldnt talk to me on the phone (also common). I had talked to the police because it was fishy and they said to not send the money and leave it in my account. I went to western union to send the money, and the worker said he did not want me to send it because it was a total scam and he saw it all the time. He said fake checks will clear in your account and seem real, but they will take a week or two to be found fake. The check will then bounce and you will lose the money. So I did not send the money. Marvin emailed me and freaked out and said that he would contact the authorities if I did not contact him right away and send the money. I got scared and I called the police and told them the situation. They said to leave the money and to tell him that I would leave it in my account for two weeks to let it clear, and if it did not bounce I would send him back the money. He freaked out of course, but they said to no longer contact him, so I didnt. He is a scam. It bounced but thankfully I didnt lose any money.
