Nick Morton Tracy Brody Canyon State OIl Co. Inc Posted a dirtibike for sale on Craigs List, Nick Morton contacted me and said that he would pay asking price plus $100 if i sold the bike to him. I agreeded and sent him my address so he could send me the check. I received the check and it included money that needed to be sent to the shipping company so they could come and pick up the bike. My bank put a hold on the check because of the size and i decided to wait to be sure the check didnt come back as not cleared. It did come back as a returned check so good thing i didnt take the money out and send it to the shipper. I would have been out money. North Las Vegas Nevada
Posted a dirt bike on criag's list for sale. Received an inquiry from Nick Morton, provided below. Telling me that he would pay asking price plus $100 for the bike. When i received the check it was for $1950 more than the asking price. I was to wire $1795 of this to a shipping agent located in NC (Receiver Name: Deb Lefler, Address: 7430 Baltusrol Ln, City: Charlotte State: NC, Zip Code: 28210) plus $155 for the wire fee. I deposited the check and then got to thinking that it was strange that they would have me pay the shipper and to set up the pick up and not do that themselves. I decided to wait a few days to be sure that the check cleared the bank it was drawn on. I checked my bank account today and the check was returned for insufficent funds, good thing I didnt spend any of the money or I would be paying my bank back money that I dont have. I also got charged a $5 return check fee and it wasnt even my check that was returned.
This is the email that I received from Nick:
