I'm a long time lurker of this site and have enjoyed it over the years.

I finally decided to get someone to send me a check. The scam went like this... I posted an ad on CL for a pair of skates I had for sale. The fee was $400.00 for the skates. I received a few emails and figured what the hell... So I started the game. After confirming the scammer wanted my skates, he told me he was sending a check and asked for me to take the ad off of CL (which I did NOT because I actually want to sell the skates).

He confirmed he was sending a check. Another day went by and the scammer told me he was away on business in London and that his assistant sent the wrong amount of Money. All I had to do was send the difference.

So now I have the check and it's kinda funny. Check it out.

I removed the image of the check as it was hosted by your real business. - Connie

So now I'm thinking of telling this guy that MY ASSISTANT went away unexpectedly on business and won't be around for a few weeks to cash the check. What I'd like to know is how can I convince this guy to send me a pic?

I have another check coming on Monday to, "Harry Balzack". Can't wait to get it!

^^When you post checks, Id's and other documents you need to mark on them "FAKE". We do not want a lad to re-use them. There is also a thread for fake checks.

I hope you are not having the checks sent to your real address or one that leads back to you.

^ absolutely, don't give them anything that can lead back to you. While a lad will probably never leave his home country without a lot of work, he may have friends near you who can pay you an uncomfortable visit. Equally, don't post any real life information here, just in case. Lads do show up here, although they usually just don't get it and wander off again.

That said, welcome to the Eater Very Happy I';d suggest signing up for a mentor, they can watch your back and get you started safely before you ascend to greatness and send lads into Chad and Sudan chasing shadows and lies. Enjoy!

Sorry about the pic.

A few things... I actually did use a real address for the two checks. Hope he doesn't have any friends in my area.

Is a Post office box the right way to go or something else?

I guess I made a cardinal mistake of thinking this guy was from Kenya or wherever and wouldn't have any friends near me. What could they do? Should I just send the check back?

I believe the general rule of thumb(hopefully someone will correct me if I'm wrong) is to either throw the check away or turn it into the authorities and ignore the lad until he goes away.

One of two things comes to mind:

1) Either just ignore the lads and throw away the checks; or

2) Say that you are re-considering and no longer wish to sell the skates (if you keep up the ad, of course, that may not be so convincing) and say that you will destroy the check, but thank them for their interest.

Either way, stop communicating and they will fade away eventually. They aren't going to get mad at you if they think you are just a flake. While lads showing up to people's doors is not completely unheard of, it is a very low risk given the stakes in this type of scam. They will not waste much time on you if you just go silent.

Hello and Welcome!

I am sure you know now to drop this guy but we do have a safe way to bait check scammers. If you get a premium membership you will have access to our drop box you can safely have lads send checks there. You still need to bait them using a made up name and email address.

Thanks for the feedback.

I'd like to have some fun with this and am considering the $30.00 donation. I'd like to know about the pseudo mailing addresses. How does this work? Will I receive the mail eventually or does someone else get the mail and send me pictures of it?

My scammer sent me this email a little while ago.

Can I tell him that the check was written to my assistant and he/she was in a major car accident on the way to the bank and the car caught on fire and she died or should I just ignore all emails as suggested above?

I believe the way the dropbox works is that you give the lad that address to ship to, and when it gets there you will be ntoified. Then you could have them take pics of it I guess, or pay the shipping to have it forwarded to your real address from there(which is, of course, safe).
To the best of my knowledge that's the basic premise.

@Secondlaw --

I think what you should do is drop any baits you have going on right now that involve your real address/name.

Then, you can start all over with a fake persona, email address, etc. and use the Premium Drop Box to receive checks if you want. As noted above, any checks or other documentation will be mailed there and you have the option of either getting it forwarded to you (if you really need to touch it), or just get a scan.

Definitely drop him. These people are not only scamming, dangerous criminals, but sometimes murderers.

Personally, if a scammer had my address I would never contact him again for any reason whatsoever.

I agree with Scammedout. No way no how do I want a scammer having my real life information. Never, ever.

Drop him and learn to be safe by reading the topics on this site.

What they said. Drop him, just ignore any contact from him and he'll soon find someone else to bother.

boofles and JMRazor gave you good information about the drop box. If you have any questions about using it, please PM me as I handle the drop box. It is a safe way to receive mail. Actually I think some premium members even use the address even if they are not going to receive snail mail or packages as it can be verified as a real address (that is if a lad actually does a google search).

To anyone reading this thread

NEVER EVER TRY TO CASH THE CHEQUE!!!
At the very least you will piss off your bank as it will be a forgery,
but you could be prosecuted for fraud. (Seriously)

When any fake checks come to the drop box, they are immediately marked FAKE, and either scanned to the baiter or sent email, but they are always marked in BIG letter FAKE across them. We are not taking any chances with cashing or depositing.
