A person was interested in purchasing my power chair that I had listed on Craigslist. He agreed to buy it (suspiciously without looking at it) and sent me a check. I sent it immediately to my credit union with my suspicions that the check was a fraud and they ran it through, and, sure enough it was a fake. I have retained a copy of the check, but this person is now claiming I stole his "hard earned money" and is threatening me with the FBI!! I am stunned by his brazen demands and basically told him to go ahead and bring it on, I will get my credit union and the authorities involved. What is my next move? Can he really get the FBI involved? (he says he has a cousin who works for them)Show more
This person pretends to cons you to accept a check into your account because he is trying to send money home to his nanny who is taking care of his two daughters in Florida. He tells you how much he loves you and how he wants to make you his wife and be a mother to his daughters. He cons you into giving him your account number so he can deposit a check so that you can send him money.Show more
I was trying to sell my leather recliner on Craigslist and had a buyer. He sent me a cashier check, so I cashed. Then 5 days later my bank put a hold on that check and charged me for the check and made my account overdrawn by a thousand dollars. Now I'm screwed.Show more
