Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
I am selling an item online for $450. He (or she) asked if I would accept certified check as payment and after it clears he would have his mover pick it up. I knew then that it was fake, but I kept with it. I asked where he was located. He said he is from my state, but is currently in California with his sick father. I could tell he didn’t speak English well by the way he worded things. He then sent a text saying he sent a check with the mover’s fee included and asked if I would help him take care of the mover’s fee. He then sent me a USPS tracking number for the check (9405501699320035400144). I received it today. The return address is the above Philadelphia name and address. The check is on Navy Federal Credit Union in Merrifield, VA for $1250. The check didn’t look legitimate (no security features). The remitter’s name is Jacarya D. Robinson. I called the credit union. The check serial number I gave had already been cashed and for a different amount. The check is, of course, fake. I asked him who Jacarya is. He said it’s his business partner. He had his partner send the check.
