Fake Cashiers Check for my engine any recourse?

A guy named Claron Macroland from 3597 Eglinton Ave. W. in Toronto, Ontario tried to buy my engine with a fake cashiers check. Does anyone know if there can be any action taken against him as I think this is a Fraud type of scam and he may be doing this to other people as well.

He was nice enough to email me back and tell me he still wanted the engine even after I had told him the check was a fake :lol: and both me and my Bank had looked into it. Thanks

Internet Crime

I wish I'd had this information a couple of months ago when I was ripped off by an E-Bay seller. SOB took my money and did not send the merchandise. I filed a claim with E-Bay and got most of my money back but I am still out 50 bucks.

This is why I always say "Cash only" if I'm not familiar with the buyer.

I got caught in the same thing.

I also turned my asshole into the Fedral Trade Commision.They got him in NYC for issueing a fake chack and some kind of scam thing.

One thing I have always done is any check certified or not it has to clear my bank before you get the goods.Also Postal money Orders are the easiest because you can take then right to the post office.

Anytime someone offers you more than what you want

You know there is a problem.Other wise Postal Money orders or cash are the saest.

Well...

You could take a nice vacation to Canada and shank him in the eye with a K-Bar...

That would probably get the point across.

My friend just sold his Pro street Bricklin project and his bank warned him that there have been a lot of bad cashiers checks going around. I've decided I won't buy anything from anybody unless they have some kind of history either on Ebay or on a forum. And if I sell something, I make sure the check is good before sending the merchandise. So far I've had good luck with Paypal (knock on wood), but again, I only use it if they are verified and have history. I can't believe how many unscrupulous people there are out there.

Fake modalities

I have recieved several counterfeit bank checks, normally call the local police and they will get you in touch with the appropriate law inforcement. Your money is probably gone, but any type of paper transaction can be frauded. Check the institutrion its drawn on for funds availibility, before the leave with you product

I recently sold some stuff on ebay and two of the buyers paid with U.S. postal money orders and I was told by my local bank that the money would be held until they cleared as there are bad postal money orders showing up now so you can't even trust those any more.Every time I place something for sale on a public forum now I get some scammer wanting to send me a cashiers check for more than I am asking and wanting me to send the difference VIA Western Union.

Even worse is some of those scams are ways for terrorists to transfer money, you may get real money and you can be put in jail for doing the transfer. That is the scary part, although more rare.

Any check I accept for payment on anything is written to CASH so, if it's not a good check it becomes a FEDERAL case for passing illigimate funds.

The same as; trying to pass counterfeit money. Now, being that there are two different countries involved, I don't know what would happen.

US Postal Money order.. undisputed champion for purchases

The great thing about these is you can take them directly to any post office to cash them. They know instantly if they are fake, stolen, etc since they get computer code scanned and they also have a log showing serial numbers for any that are missing/stolen. Woks great since I'm always shipping stuff (plus the sife works at our local post office).
