You thinking identity theft?

If so, call the Alpine police department and let them know. As small as Alpine is, they could make them aware.

Was intended for you to answer the text. Wasn't a legit tracking #. He doesn't care who cash's the check and sends back the $1500 to him while you wait only to hear the check didn't clear.

We just dealt with the same scam several weeks ago. At the time we were selling our electric piano. A buyer wanted it and gave many of the same instructions Ronnie had above. We asked $350 for the piano and a check showed up in the mail for $2000. There was a business address on the envelope so we called that business. It was legitimate but they told my wife the FBI was already involved. They gave my wife a number to the FBI fraud division. I ended up selling the piano to a TBHer instead.

I'll send you a check for $6000.00 and pay you 5200.00 for your info. Pease send the $800 to my nephew, since I only have one check left. I forgot to reorder checks and have to pay him for some work. Keep the extra $200 for your troubles.

Prolly old news as well but the small timers are doing it with cash too. Either via craigslist or garage sales etc. they will buy a small item and say all they have is a $100 bill so you'll give em a handful of real cash as change from their very nicely done home made hunnerd! They're getting really good at it too. Has the security strip in it and passes the pen test. Be careful peeps!

Tell him the police /SWAT team have surrounded your house and are asking about this deal with Norm. Tell him you panicked and swallowed the money whole. Ask him to post bail and help recover the money. Ask him what the best tasting fiber cereal is and tell him you need 3 large boxes.

You should tell him you parlayed the money with the heir of a deceased Nigerian prince and mailed his $2000 along with another $1500 and are waiting on the money order for $3.5M to arrive and once it does you will split the money with him since he seems like such a nice guy and all!! Tell him you need his account number and password so you can route the money appropriately. Might as well get his DOB. Mothers maiden name and SSN while your at it!!
