Ok I knew this was a scam from the get go but I wanted to do this in order to show people what to look out for .
1 . Look at the return address on the envelope
691 Liberty Park Road
Opelika AL 36804
Also notice the 1-800-351-8192 that is a disconnected number
2 > The check is from
Dennis l. Balderson
Mary R. Balderson
2429 Ecuadorian Way # 39
Clearwater Fl 33763
This guy also calls from a 573-427-7155
It is a Google voice which is a service that you can call a land line from any where in the world.
He text me that he would like to buy the motor and then proceeds to say that he will send me a check and then ask how much for shipping I say 250$ well then he says that he will send the check + the shipping charges well then I say OK But I need to place a holt on the check for 5-10 business days he said OK he then later on text me with a usps tracking # and says payment is now sent thank you .
he text me that I should be getting the check today I said COOL at 10 am he said my check was delivered he must have been right by his computer because I watched the mail man put it in the box before I couldn't even get to the mail box in time before the text came threw . the check was for 2950.00 I told him that I will go deposit the check he replied ,
Let me know when you deposit it that way he can clear the funds . I said OK
Then he said since I deposited it that it would only take 24 hr or less to clear and that he would call his bank well 2hrs later he text me and said The check cleared his bank Man that was fast it cleared before I could even deposit it . he said that he would proceed to get the shipper to pick the motor up on Saturday I told him I still have to hold the check .
He said why when it has already cleared his bank I said it was my company policy
He then said I wasn't being honest with him .. and if he didn't get his motor he would file charges against me well the funny thing is. is that a detective will be at my house tomorrow waiting on the pick up because the sheriffs department said that the driver picking up the 1900$ cash is in on the scam the detective said once I give the money to the man and he puts it in his pocket they will make the arrest so tomorrow I will be playing around with 1900$ of my money to get one creep off the streets its well worth it to me .
