Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
We received an email from the scammer (Samantha Campbell and/or Timothy Campbell) explaining that they were interested in purchasing our truck that was listed on Craigslist, and to please remove the listing because they were sending a certified check. The scammers then sent further emails explaining that they would be sending $50 extra for having us run around and removing the item from Craigslist, plus an additional amount to pay the mover that was coming to pick up the truck. The scammers sent the check, which we deposited into our bank account, the amount was $1,550.00 more than the asking price. Another email explained that they wanted us to go to a nearby Walmart or CVS location and send a money gram 10 minute transfer for the extra $1,500 to the movers that would be picking up the truck. The address that they wanted us to send a money gram to is: Lazaria Jarrett, 819 Robin Hood Trail, Statesboro, GA, 30458. I replied to the email explaining not to send the movers until the check clears, or they would have to return to pick up the truck once the check had cleared. They replied to that email with "OK…..". The check did not clear at our bank and the deposit was removed.
