of Scams by Type and by profession.
Rating: Dangerous... many guides and outfitters have suffered from slow business of late and the opportunity to book a rich European can be very tempting. Read the analysis of this one.
|Here is the deal:
This guy is going to book dates, he is then going to send you a
letter / email stating that he will pay you more than is needed.
Reason is he needs you to forward the extra to his travel agent,
because he can only write one check.. Various and sundry reasons
will be given. He may send a Certified Check. That check may be good
enough to get by the bank, but when it is proven to be stolen, or a
fraudulent check you will be required to repay it. NO the bank is
not responsible to make sure you are NOT cashing a fraudulent
instrument in most cases. IF they offer to pay by credit card,
similar situation may occur. For some reason these folks have gotten
ahold of numbers that are going to work.. for a day or so. Then the
card will be charged back.. WHY? because you did not see the card.
IF you do not
see, no protection at all. DO NOT agree to send EXTRA money to
anyone. I guarantee 100% of the time it is a scam.
I hate to help these folks, so I will say this, Read this carefully. Do you really believe someone from England wrote this...???? Someone who speaks fluent English?
