SELLERS BEWARE!!!!!! read this

Recently i posted a thread on here for my spare set of rims/tires. I received a email from a guy named Adam Bucek, out of Oklahoma. he said he saw my wheels on the website and wanted them, he asked to remove the listing from the site and that i would get a money order with a week or so. He emailed me a few times saying how he appreciates me not selling them to anyone and that he overpaid me on the money order. he actually put in his email that if i was an honest guy, I would western union him the difference minus the shipping.he pleaded for me to ship them asa i got the money order. I emailed him back telling him that when the money order cleared, then i would ship the wheels. QUESS WHAT??? Today a United States Postal Service money order shows up, and as he explained, it was too much. I told him 650.00 plus the shipping. the money order was for 834.00. Something didn't feel right, so i went to the bank to have it verified.Of course,they had no idea.They sent me to the post office. The supervisor said it was the best fake he has ever seen.

BEWARE OF A BUYER NAMED ADAM BUCEK out of Oklahoma

Hope this prevents someone from getting scammed....

He was probably a troll and not even a member, just searched the site and emailed you. If he was a member I would suspect he would have used a PM to get a hold of you. And just a note, that is a pretty old trick. I am not saying you a a fool by any means but that one has been around for a while...good for you for not getting caught though.

Well, I started out with nothing and I still have most of it...

Contact the FBI as this involves interstate wire fraud. 8-10 in the big house will do wonders for his scamming butt.

Had a similar message from a guy on craigslist. My reply to him was I would only accept paypal. Never heard from him again. I knew it was a scam from the beginning and knew he wouldn't reply after I told him I wouldn't accept his "certified check"!!!

Had the same thing here!! Guy said he was out of the country and that he would mail me a check, and send someone to pick up the car. Well I told him to mail the check to a PO Box that I would give him the address when the check cleared. Well I got the check and I was asking 6,000 for the car and I got a 15,000 check. So I took the check to the bank they called in the account and it was a fraud. They asked if I could wait to speak to someone about the fraud and I said sure. Turns out they called the FBI. I gave them the envelope, they put it in a plastic ziplock bag, took my statemet and that was the last I heard!!!!

Mods: Too many to list!!
