The issue in GetHuman1186350's own words
Hello my name is Sabrina Lee, I am selling my puppy on craigslist, soon as I posted my post for my puppy. I got a text from a buyer name, Jalisa Isreal later in the evening. Then we texted on our gmail regarding about her buying my pup. I was selling it for ***$ but then she insisted to have it urgently because she needed it on time. So then she added a **$ shipping to it. I thought It was quite appreciative of her, and she wanted to send over a check through mail. I didn't think much of it and agree to have it through check without meeting each other and see how it works out. I did find it strange but I've also wonder if it'll work that way. Then I received it on ****, as I got home from work I opened my mail and saw a check. On the right corner I see it was *,***$. I was surprised to see such large number. I don't think it is right to see such number so high for my puppy. This is why I find it so strange because I only said it was ***$ plus the ** she told me. Or **$ because she was switching off the numbers through the text from our gmails. I didn't mind if it was ** and as soon as I looked at my mail she sent me, It didn't feel right at all to take such money that I could accountable of. I don't want any part of this and would like to send it back to Jalisa. This mail was from USPS. I don't know whether to believe she sent me such large money to me because honestly I can't take it. I would not like any part of this so please get back to me as soon as you can. Tell me what should I do? I need someone who I can trust to talk to about this. Right now I am still holding on the check without going to the bank. I believe this is some kind of scam or fraud and could be use against me. Please, help me from this person who has sent me three type of number to me from texting. My last text to her was her background information. She has not yet tell me who she is and who I am dealing with. Just her name and her telling me the rules to follow from the text on our gmail she sent me. She tells me to deposit the money and clear the payment and have an arrangement to pick up the "item". She keep referring my pup as a item, though I do not see it that way. My pup is not an item and isn't worth *,***$. She is someone I can't trust to give my dog away. I do regret not reaching out to her in depth to know more about her background. Our text is not usually often but may be a few days later or a week or * letting each other know how to settle the arrangement and payment. I believe now this such nonsense to know what I am getting into and who she really is. I don't know what or how she'll do this to get my dog but there is no way she is getting away with it. So with your help or any one who reach me, it will be possible to know the truth outcome. I don't need this sudden money to come to my house when it is out of my range. I did too indeed tell her that it is too much but she said the following, ".. the remaining balance of the funds on the check after you deduct your total money is sent to mover to cover the cost of shipment for the item bought from you alongside my other properties bought within the state, including tax and insurance, plus the movers fee which I already explained to you in our previous conversation in the email, take the check to your bank on Monday or locate nearest ATM in the morning and have the check placed on **hrs deposit by using either your debit*credit card. Afterwards get back to me with deposited status (available balance)" So if any one can tell me what this might be it would be a great help. Thank you for reading my concerns.
