Victim Location 48910
Total money lost $2,357.69
Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
This person wanted to rent my vacation home through VRBO/HomeAway but could not use a credit card because it was a business trip. He stated that his work would send a check for the rental amount. When I received the check it was in excess of the rental amount and I received a call stating his work made a mistake and I needed to forward the balance to his "travel Planner". I cashed the check and sent a cashiers check to his travel planner. I just received notice that the company check was a fraud and that the business had experienced several of these events. Looking back, I should have seen the red flags but I didn’t.
