Scam Email: Adam Barger

This scam email is pretty brief, the scammer is casting his net wide and then will spend more of their time and effort on those artists who actually reply. Then they will whip out their long story about moving and their shipping company and blah blah blah.

Remember - this scam requires two things: overpaying with a counterfeit check or stolen credit card and the use of a wire transfer to forward the "difference" on to a third party. Never accept overpayments and never agree to forward money for anyone and, most important, just never use wire transfers for your business online. That will keep you safe from this scam.
