Petfinder.com — cashier check scam
I recently placed an ad on petfinder.com. I was immediately contacted by email in regards to someone adopting my pets. I noticed right away that a couple of the emails entailed the same format, just different names and shipping addresses. This person corresponded with me every day but never answered any of my questions as far as where the pets were going, why they wanted them, no personal info whatsoever. This person also went as far as to send me a $2,000 cashier's check from a credit union in Texas. Kinda funny since the shipping address on the UPS label came from an address in Pennsylvania. I called information with the name and address on the shipping label, no record of this person at that address or the surrounding area. I also called UPS and found out that whoever sent the money left absolutely NO information whatsoever. This is by far the worst scam I have seen. I am ripping up the check and reporting this to petfinder at once.
