Craig's List scammer had better get up earlier than that
So I've started making rustic furniture out of recycled pallets. You'd be amazed as I was, at the quality of wood some companies use for pallets. Anyway, I made this coffee table and listed it on Craig's List for $200. Some dude named Ander Joeson offered to buy it. He says to expect today a certified check for 10 times the amount and his request that I take my $200 and send the balance by Western Union to some address. Supposedly his secretary mistakenly made it out for too much.
I guess the scam is that I'm supposed to deposit the check into my personal account, then wire the $1800 to him before the check bounces. If there weren't people that stupid I guess they wouldn't be attempting to scam us, but seriously who falls for that?
