FRAUD ALERT!!

FRAUD ALERT!!

Be aware of schemes that target individuals that use Internet classified ads to sell merchandise. The following are, potential indicators that a scam is being perpetrated, and/or steps to follow to curtail being duped:

 The buyer's email is from a common "free" email internet company and does not reveal any personal information (i.e., name, address, phone numbers, company name, web page address, etc.).
 Any transaction details other than a straight forward offer from a person that you have personally and verbally discussed the transaction with and whom intends to forward a certified cashier's check.
 The seller is told that the buyer has an associate that owes him money and the buyer will have the associate send the seller a cashier's check for the amount owed the buyer.
 Any instance where a check amount will be substantially more money than the price of the merchandise, and the seller is told the excess amount will be forwarded via Western Union or another electronic money wiring system.
 The buyer requests the seller to provide Western Union transaction details such as
Control Number(MTCN), and Test Question and Answer.
 The buyer begins to discuss a hardship such as a family member being gravely ill and needs the excess funds from the transaction sent to a third party such as a Doctor.
 When any check, including a cashier's check, is received and deposited, "never" withdraw any of the funds until the bank tells you that the deposited check has been verified to be "good." The bank will usually make the funds available immediately, however, if the deposited check is found to be "no good" you are later notified by the bank and are responsible to repay to withdrawn funds.
 Never release merchandise prior to the bank verifying that the check is "good".
