Craigs List / Fraudulent cashier check issued

1 12400 Tessen Ferry RoadSt Louis, MO, United States Review updated:
Contact information:

My client located in London, England, whom I'd secured through a Craigslist.com posting, agreed to forward payment for services to me via USPS. Craigslist.com served as an agent to transfer his London currency to USD & sent a cashier's check payable to me in the amount of$3400 USD. After depositing the check, my financial institution advised me the check was a fraud (confirmed via their investigative services). Meanwhile, I have over 10 NSF fees to my personal account (which drained my account) & no funds to eat this month!

    I received this after responding to the original request for more information on the item I was selling on craigs list.

    Email from brittan_smith2005@yahoo.com

    I will like you to know that my husband has mailed out the payment and shipper are currently in united Kingdom pickup some items, so i will like you to kindly stay at home to sign the package, the tracking is (1Z48R89V0195602172), after cashing the check kindly deduct you fund plus $30 for compensation and kindly have the remaining sent via western union money transfer to the shipping agent so that they can come for the pickup, here is the shipper information below,


    Name : Denis Collins
    Address:56 Fortescue Road, Colliers Wood
    London SW19 2EA


    So as soon as you get the transfer done, i will like you to contact the shipping agent and email the transfer information to the shipping agent so as soon as they have the money picked up, they will be coming for the pickup asap and you can arrange the pickup schedule with them, Email them on :shineexpressinc@live.com.


    Beware of any email that has any of this information in it, the check was held at my bank for 8 days before it was returned as no good!
