A friend's daughter almost got caught in a scam. She had posted on a university website to sublet her room while she was in co op. A person wanted to rent it, and sent her a cheque for much more than the 4 months rent, and asked her to western union the balence (over $2000) to the "mover."

At the bank the cashier couldn't figure out if it was canadian or us funds and went to her supervisor for help.

The supervisor, God bless him, told my friend's daughter to go immediately to the police, as it was a scam. She is working with the police as we speak, but I told her mom about 419 scams, and that the "nice person" was probably sitting in an internet cafe in Nigeria and not to hold her breath about the scammer getting caught.

@pwwbear - Sounds like a close one. Good thing that person caught that one. Lots of innocent people are getting ripped off by check scammers.
They are everywhere. I hate the [email protected]@rd5!! Evil or Very Mad If you want to join in on some fun with one come on over to The Very Annoyed Check Lad. We got a massbait on him, and are beating him up good. There is always room for one more. Smile
