    Rudy signed Matthew Rudy.
    Of course, I would never sell any paintings under such conditions. Elisabeth

    Hello,
    Thanks very much for your email, i am okay with the price of the only the items (N. P. Dahlerup." The Claun and the Elephants + N. P. Dahlerup. "Houses builded in the Trees". Elisabeth Tasarek. The Gral" =14.000 KR). The reason I am sending you this email is to make final reconfirmation of the and also to let you know that payment will be by Check. In view of this I need you to email me any information that may be required to send the Check, as I do not want to send the Check to a wrong location least they gets into the wrong hands. Regarding the shipping, I have a company that takes care of the pick up of my consignments for me and ship to my destination , you do not worry about shipping, the company will send down a representative to arrange the sales documentation and the pick up from your gallery form onward transfer to my destination, I also want to alert you on the fact that you will be receiving an overdraft Check which will cover the money for
    the pickup. (pickup and shipping to the final destination) as well as the money to be paid to the company that will take care of the pick up and the with you. So please, as soon as you receive the Check, go and cash them immediately,deduct the cost of your item and send the balance to the Head Office of the company that handles the shipment via the nearest Western Union agent in your area. Deduct the Western Union charges from the balance and send the remaining to the shipping company. The Check will be in your name to make it easier for you to receive payment, deduct your money of your item and send the balance via Western Union as regards my earlier direction, please reconfirm your details one more time. I will give you the details of the company that you will send the balance of the money to once I get a reply and agreement that you will send the money via Western Union money transfer after you cash the Check. Once the money is received by the agent,
    the shipping agent will contact you immediately to arrange the documentation as well as the pick up immediately.So in view of the above, here are some of the details I will need for final issuance of the Check to you.

    (1) Full Name -
    (2) Mailing address,
    (3) Mobile number-
    (4) Your direct telephone number -
    (5) Acceptance of my offer -

    Once you get back to me with all the above, the Check will be issued out immediately and it will be sent to you.Hope to hear from you immediately.

    N.B:
    I will wait for the check to clear before the pick up.I will like you to consider the items sold to me okay,I will compensate you with 20€ for you to remove the item from the site.
    Thanks

  9. I received the same email, and in fact she sent me the check. I almost fell for this, but checked it out. I'm working with the bank, the state attorney general's office and the FBI to report this. I also received a similar post from a Greg who is supposedly sending a check, and I will turn this over to authorities as well. So glad others had posted these as it alerted me to stop the process before being taken to the cleaners. John

    Thanks for your understanding and co-operation,so Kindly look into your letter box address starting from this week and get back to me immediately when you received and deposited it into your bank account and here is my mobile number you can text me or ring me on +447448817840.

  53. got a similar email, but now he/she is trying to book a wedding for the daughter.... as I am a wedding photographer.

    Hi,
    Am Stone Runny, i will like to book an appointment for my daughter wedding,but i will be glad if you can list some of your past Photos,also my only method of payment is by Bank Check.

    Also,my finance manager will handle all the expensive fees for the wedding.

    Thank

    I actually don't get how he/she could do a scam in the wedding photography industry as I always ask 50% of the payment prior the wedding day....

    but still good to know, I will not answer back

    1. "...my finance manager" is just a variation of "my shipping agent". Basically, they will attempt to overpay and say either forward the over payment on to another vendor as part of the [fake non-existent] wedding or they will just attempt to overpay and say oops, can you wire the mistake part back. In either case, the original payment will be a counterfeit check or stolen credit card so the victim is out the difference.

      Way to avoid this scam? Never accept an overpayment for any reason and never wire money doing a business transaction for someone trying to buy from you.

  58. They don't care what they are pretending to buy. They over pay with a counterfeit check and ask the victim to wire the difference to, well, they make up different reasons why - a shipper, their wife or accountant made a mistake, etc.

    The triggers to this scam are: an overpayment and a request to wire money.

    Don't accept over payments and don't wire money when selling online.

  59. The scammer will agreed to whatever prepayment you ask. Then they will have some reason to over pay that prepayment. Then they will ask to wire the overpayment either to someone else or back to them

    If the victim in fact deposits the prepayment and wires the difference, it will then be discovered the original check is counterfeit and the bank withdraws it from the account and the victim is out the money they wired which is now untraceable. It never gets to the point of the items or services being sold. The scam lies in the prepayment stage of the sale.
