Total money lost $1,200
Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
The scammer by the name of Kim Coleman who I met on Wallapop while trying to sell a projector for 320 sent me a cashiers check of 1800 and ask me to do her a favor and send the rest of the amount to a shipper who was suppose to pick up the the projector from me once he got the payment. I sent the amount the amount of 1200 to the shipper who was suppose pick up the projector from me. The only reason I didn’t send the whole amount was because the check had not cleared yet and wouldn’t until 4 more days according to my bank.Later the next day Kim told me the shipper had gotten arrested and wouldn’t be pick the project that day. She ask to borrow 300 and would send out another payment as soon as the other shipper got the 300. I said no I couldn’t because I found so strange. I had lost trust. I took long to reply so she accuse of reporting me. I told her to wait until Thursday till her check clears but I got the horrible news today from my bank that it was counterfeit check!! I am current new to my bank and I owe the that amount now.
