I first received an e-mail from this guy after I listed a posting of a kiteboard I was selling on Craigslist.com. He disguised his name as Abraham Roberts and his email was abrahamrobert2@gmail.com. He said that he cannot come personally to see the kiteboard but tells me that he will be sending me a check in the mail and asks for my full name and address to send it to. Right here I should have had red flags going up, but I provided my information anyway, thinking that it was legit.

The check he sent me was for $1,800. I was selling the kiteboard for $400. He told me to keep $500 for the price plus a tip and send the rest to "his shipper" via Western Union and he provided me some information to which I should send the money using Western Union. Having the knowledge of fraud checks/money orders and scammers' dependability on Western Union and other bank wiring services to receive their money, I realized that this was bogus and dealt with the rest quite angrily.

If you ever receive emails in anyway similar to the one I got for items you're selling on craiglist or a similar site, IGNORE THEM and at the every least, do NOT give out ANY of you're information. Not even your name!!!
