TRIED THE OLDEST SCAM IN THE BOOK

Post by N5WHT1 » Sun Sep 22, 2019 2:01 am

He went by the name "BILL JOHNSON" with the callsign of "KF29L" (the first red flag). With an email address of (bjsonlover1@yahoo.com). The second
red flag was,he wanted to pay me more than i was asking for the item. The third red flag was, he wanted to send me a cashiers check and wanted me to cash it and send him the rest. I can't believe that they are still trying to pull off the "Oldest Scam In The Book". Posted by N5WHT for all my friends.

It ain't the "oldest" to somebody who never heard of it. And, believe me, millions probably still haven't heard of it.
