ED Magedson – Founder
I had listed two mink coats on Craigslist for sale. Tina Jake answered my email and said her Secretary was sending me a cashier's check in the amount of $3,000. When I received the check I was supposed to take it to my bank and cash it and call her and she would send someone to pick up the coats.
I received a check from Fed Ex today in the amount of 3,000 sent by Katherine Crawford from Jacksonville, FL. The check is written from Ciry of Cartersville Gas System on Branch BAnking and Trust Company Bank in Cartersville, Ga. I called the City of Cartersville Gas System and of course they know nothing about a check that would be written to be in that amount for cash (that is what it said on the memo part of the check) and certainly not for mink coats. I tried to call the bank of which there is no such bank in information. The City of Cartersville will call me back the first of next week to verify all this information, etc. THIS IS A SCAM!
Its horrible that people like this get by with this. Had I just put this check in my bank, it would of not been any good and I would of been liable for all the checks that would have been floating around that I had written thinking this was a good check.
BEWARE of other scams like this in jobs, of which I was scammed also about a job listed on Craigslist. IF IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT NORMALLY IS!
