We hate checks and fake check scams are everywhere now! Jason Froehlig was sent a fake check to pay for the truck engine that he was selling online. Guess what, the buyer sent him a check of $3,500, which is for the following:
$1,000 for the engine
$2,500 for the freight and pickup.
After receiving the fake check, Jason was asked to wire $2,500 of real cash to the buyer so that they can send someone to pickup the truck engine.
Police Investigator Dick Price made a good point, “If you get a check that doesn’t make sense to you, throw it away,” he said.
