Default Re: Overseas Transaction

I hope that wasn't directed towards me. As I said before, he was shipping me laptops to clean and install software on for one of his clients. There was no suspicious behavior until he sent the first email. I am not familiar with Western Union, which was why I came here to ask...to get advice. Not be told to GTFO. If you are going to be derogatory in my threads, please don't post.

As I also said before, it was HIS money. He sends me a check for 2300, I take 300 and send the rest. But as I have done more research, this can be construed as money laundering.

Default Re: Overseas Transaction

mate, it's a well known scam, you would have lost 4.3k.

You have to deposit the 2.3k in your bank account to withdraw his 2K because the cheque will be non negotiable, once you have wired him the 2K he cancels the cheque from his end, your 2K is in his hands and you have a negative 2.3k bank balance

Thanks for your input guys. If it's any correlation, after I called him upon his directions, he just "magically" disappeared.
