The west Pasco man was scammed out of $2,300 by two men who answered
a classified ad for some power tools that the 52-year-old had posted on

Flippo followed the common-sense rules typically
recommended when conducting transactions from online classified ad
sites: He agreed to sell his items to men he met in person and he was
paid in cash for all but $300 of the purchase.

But he still got
scammed when he realized he received $2,000 worth of counterfeit $100
bills, and he wants to make sure no one else does.
