JERRY HOLBROOK - JERRY MCCAUGHEY ON CRAIGSLIST Jerry Holbrook Internet Fraud, Scam Artist Internet

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Posted an ad on Craigslist to sell Diecast cars.  Received an email back about 10 minutes later stating:  Still available?  I sent a reply back letting this person know that they were.  Not soon after I sent that off, here is what I received

From: "Jerry McCaughey"

I'm glad it's still for sale. I'm going on a vacation to London but I will instruct my assistant to prepare and mail you your payment which I'm sure you will get it in about 4 - 6 business days. I'll add $20 extra for the delay. Money Order or cashier check is the means I can pay you with. If this is acceptable by you, Send me your info (i.e full name, mailing address and your phone number) so payment can be mail out immediately. I will also make arrangement for pick-up which will be after you must have received and cashed the payment. Awaiting your info. Thanks

Quick on the fingers looking this name up because this did not sound right, I found this website and here I am posting about this same person.  I did reply asking where he was from and have not heard back.  He must have realized I was on to him.  I have just filed a report with Craigslist as well as the FTC.   Please be aware and check into things that don't sound right like this one.
