Sonia CHECK FRAUD FROM FIFTH THIRD BANK Beverly Hills, California Internet

*General Comment: Question for you---

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

 On August 6th, 2016 I put an item up for sale of an Industrial light wall pack for buildings on the App 5Miles. I got a very quick response which usually never happens that quick, this person at the time I did not know if it was a lady or man, but they messaged me saying they would like to buy my item for $100. I asked them when could they come and pick it up and they said during the week and asked for my number, so I gave them my number and told them to text me when. A (412)-307-3473 number texted me saying "hey this is Sonia I'm interested in your light." I found it weird because I have friends from California and the area code wasn't one I recognized, I looked the number up and it's said it was from Philadelphia but I gave the benefit of the doubt that maybe they moved out to California. "Sonia" said she lives in California but is buying the light for her cousin which they would come pick it up from me because they live in my state. [continued below]....

..... I said okay sounds great. So Tuesday comes and I haven't heard from her. I texted her and asked if she was still interested and she said yes that the check would be here in a day or so. It's August 11th, 2016. She texted me with the Tracking # to the package she's sending the check in and says that her secretary sent me the wrong check of $1,350.00 that was supposed to go to the movers. She says if I could please deduct my $115.00 and she will send me the information to the movers later in the day. I was puzzled but I said okay fine. She then texts me again to deposit the check and let her know when the check cashes in so she can tell me what to do for the movers. I was again puzzled like is she going to pay me for doing this work for her? So I'm sitting at the bank while they're with the check and I text her I'm at the bank and she says "great let me know when you can acces the funds" I never responded back to her because the bank lady tells me if it's my first time getting a cashiers check, and I tell her yes, and she then asks me how I got the check. I tell her, and she laughs and says "Sweetie this check is a fraud if someone ever tells you something like that they're scamming you and want to wipe you're account of all your money." She then showed me how the check was fraud. I was angry and I immediately texted "Sonia" and told her and she never responded, I kept texting her and still no response. As I'm writing this she responded saying "There must be a mistake I'm getting in contact with the bank."

Question for you---

AUTHOR: Striderq - (USA)

Yes, this was a fraud attempt and I'm glad the bank caught it for you. However, since Fifth Third had nothing to do with the fraud why did you include them in the title??? That gives them another post about them, when they did nothing wrong.

Nope, I don't work for them.
