Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

After posting an ad on Craigslist for selling tools and tool chests, I was contact via text message by an individual using names Michael Thomas & Anthony Thomas. He corresponded with me using three different phone numbers, 1-510-340-5862, 1-213-295-2465, & 1-213-289-6870. After much correspondence, he mailed me a check for $8000, which was two thousand dollars over asking price. I did not cash the check, and later received a second check, unsolicited, for $7800. Both checks were of the same typeface and background, but with different names, banks, and locations. I then began receiving text messages prompting me to cash the checks and accept payments. The bank names on the checks were 1st Source bank of South Bend, IN. The second was Regions, located in Little Rock, AR. I became suspicious of the person attempting to contact me that they were trying to get me to cash the checks and be at fault for the fraudulent funds.

Contacted me on upwork with a job offer. Tried to get my address and phone number first. Then the talk of a check for equipment. Then the we need all your info so hr can process after you sign your offer sheet and email it back. I didn't get that far before i called the guy i was supposedly talking to and asked for proof of business. The Guy had no idea what i was talking about and thanked me for making him aware. Watch out and be skeptical about everything.

I was selling some antiques on Craigslist. I got an email from this gentleman wanting to know why I was selling. At first, his account name was "Fredor Zaevskiy". A couple of emails through, he had changed the name to "Steven Smith". It was kinda fishy then. But, I listed the items for $200. He said that he would throw in another $50 for holding the items. Not a big deal. People do that all the time. He asked my name, a good STREET address, and a phone number he could contact me and he would send a cashier's check via 2-day priority Fed-Ex Mail. I did not receive it in my P.O. Box though.... It showed up on my door step. (Now is when things get really weird). I open the check, and instead of being $250, it was $1,980. I had contacted him concerning this, and he said it was for the mover's. He was having a company come and get the items and I needed to pay them there on the spot. Something really felt fishy. My husband asked around his work, and the same thing happened to one of his co-workers! They will come to the spot you tell them to, pick up the items, you pay for the movers, and then come to find out, NEITHER THE ACCOUNT OR THE BANK IS REAL!! He had to pay the full amount back for everything. This guy is getting cold, hard cash and your items for no expense to him. I took it to my bank and they told me DO NOT DEPOSIT THE MONEY, DO NOT CASH IT, SHRED IT IMMEDIATELY!!
