I am an artist and the seller contacted me about a painting on my website. Sent me a check $1750 even though the painting was only $450. Sent no note or anything with the check. When I contacted the seller saying they sent too much they said the rest was to have it shipped. Seemed shady—the lady was going to have a person pick up the $500 to ship it to Canada and wanted me to do it before the check cleared because it was a gift for her husband for their anniversary. Lone behold my bank rejected the check because it was fraudulent.

Contacted by Ms Angel_Scott Via Instagram. she was out of work living with mom. She owed her bank money so she could not cash a check there. Said her Uncle (she does not know his name when asked) would send me a check to deposit in my bank $3850.00. I was to use the ATM om make the deposit. I was instructed to keep $300.00 and send the rest to her on a cash card. Of course I needed to send her the reciept, for the cash card, so I would throw away record of the trans-action.
