Fraud

Postby ehoeveler » Fri Mar 22, 2013 2:37 pm

I'm sad to say that one of our members was approached
by a person from 'Belgium' who offered to buy some of her work.
According to the buyer, our artist was to cash a check and they would have
a mover pick up the paintings and pay him the leftover money.
The "certified check" came from a Township of West Orange, NJ.
and it was pure rubber.
Stay safe! Thanks, E

Wow, the depths that fraud folks will sink to. I hope that her artworks are safe and sound.

I think they are. She had the smarts to ascertain whether
the funds were available before she tried to cash the thing.
