Nigerian Scam on Etsy.com
Just a quick post to warn any of you selling on etsy.com...
Don't accept checks drawn on the account of [Edit: Name removed],
CA. These are scam checks, the victim being the steel mill. I
received one for an etsy sale and called as the check was for over
600 bucks more than the sale, and talked to the business owner,
whose checking account has been compromised by checks printed at
Staples, or some office supply place and digitally signed. The
common thread in the scam was etsy. FBI and post office are now
involved, Interpol will probably be soon.
Don't send goods, don't cash the check if you get one, I was the
10th call he had gotten, more are sure to follow. (My check number
was 1066, the year of the Battle of Hastings)
