Hi Everyone
I was scammed! I had placed my 87 RC for sale here last month.. And
a man by the name of Carl Cole ofered to buy my truck he was the so called "agent" sent a cashiers check for over the amount I was asking not alot over but asked me to wire the remaining amount to him which I did.. The check cleared this past Monday or so I thought... Then got a letter in the mail from my bank. Yesterday. and I now owe my bank $4,000!
I am in the process of contacting the police and printing out everything I have email wise! PLEASE PLEASE do'nt anyone else fall for this!!
Once again his name is Carl Cole email is through yahoo...
Thanks
Lisa Kelly
PS I still have my truck thank God!

Guys the check cleared on Monday or so I and the bank thought.... I thought a cashiers check was as good as Gold... but I guess not anymore....... The bank actually held the check for 1 week! In order for it to clear.. Who would of thought? Guess I am just still naive and gullable...

Sorry to hear this happened to you, but you got luckier than some. One lady shipped her car (a mint 57 Chevy Belair convertable), and wired out the balance. Atleast you still have your truck. Contact the FBI about this too. They have a fraud division that deals with this. Unfortunetly, nothing will probably come of it though, as most of these scammers are located in other countries that are not subject to prosecution by US authorities.

you need to read the wording of thier e-mails you usually can tell if its a scam or not.
I'd also never take a check for over the amount of the item being sold.That sounds shady by itself.
I got the same e-mail when i sold my van on here,I just ignored it.
