Scam ?

Post by aj4hk » Mon Jul 29, 2019 2:12 pm

Hello
Okay I'm willing to add an extra $50 for you to reserve it in my favor.. And I'll be mailing a Cashier check for the payment, and once the bank posts the fund, which shouldn't take more than a day, I'll arrange for the shipping. Let me have your name and address so that I can arrange for the payment

Sounds like a scam to me. This was a response I received yesterday on an item I listed here on QTH.

I got exactly the same email on an item I was selling. Have a little fun, respond and let them mail you the phony check. It will be for more than the item you are selling. He/she will ask for the difference back immediately, before the check clears. I have a nice collection of checks. Kinda like QSL cards.
