Something similar to this happened on Teen Mom!

I’d think something was up IMMEDIATELY if someone sent a check for way more than it was supposed to be and asked for the difference back. People don’t do that on accident.

Don’t feel like an idiot! The only reason I would have been suspicious is because I saw that Teen Mom episode.

So glad you didnt follow through! Its easy to get caught up in the transaction even if you “should” know better.

This is like, the #1 most common fraud on Craigslist and other online selling sites. Be cautious ladies!

That is so shady! Wow…Once, my Fiance sold a ipod Touch through Craigslist and they paid through Paypal and did an in-person exchange of goods. Later that person claims that they never received the goods, and since there was no evidence (since Fiance gave it to him at a Starbucks) Fiance had to refund the money! So he was out of $200 and out of an ipod Touch…

That happened to me, and I caught it early. There are so many scammers out there! I finally put it in a consignment store because I was sick of dealing with it!

 

Good eye!!

This happens all the time on craigslist. We always play around with the person. We take their check and then take pictures of it with us making funny faces and send it back to them and let them know we have reported their email address and took the cash.
