BEWARE I got scammed for $5500

Just wanted to let everyone know that is sell ing any parts on the internet. I used Racing Junk.com to sell a BB Ford engine and was given a fake Cashier check for $5500, the people were black (male unknown and young female) from Georgia. They came in a Uhaul to get the engine and had another engine in there already.

The bank on the check was Savannah Bank out of GA. They have had 5 of these happen in the last week.

Just a heads up!

With that kind of thing you never take cashiers check, Cash only! Same on craigslist for that very reason.

guys I know....I don't need anyone telling me what I did wrong. I just wanted to let people know. They could have counterfit cash almost as easy as a counterfit cashier check.

It is not the site, it is the people. I sold a Cobra race car on that site.

It was made up, but it was a good looking one. It was on the real paper and all it just had a bad routing number and that particular bank doesn't even do "certified checks"


and I know it wasn't the site just saying watchj out because the scammer is lurking that site.

I hope they catch the effers...do you have a description of the motor and it's mods so that people can look out for it? TRUE car people will watch for it being sold and help us all by getting this sob in jail or dead...

Do you have a serial number for the engine? I'm sure it'll be up for sale again soon.

On a side note, isn't there a way to call the bank or check the numbers/account on the check quickly before letting the merchandise out of sight?

Yikes I hope they find them. Very Rarely do I take checks, and I check if their IDs match also when taking them. I had someone try to pick up a in dash dvd and subs from my old car. Tried to write me a 1500 dollar check. It looked good, but I asked for his ID so I could make sure. He got mad at me and said no I am no showing you my ID. I said ill only take cash and he said, "fine I will be back in 5 minutes, I have to run to the bank". Never saw him again. Also its a good idea to take cash because its harder to make counterfeit money then it is to make checks (the line through it when you put it to the light). Also they have to make at least fifteen hundreds, which makes it much more of a hassle.

OMG.....this sucks Jeremy!

The fake cashiers check scam is real common. Usually takes 4-5 days before your bank finds out they look so good. Make sure to notify racingjunk also.....

I always call the bank on the check to verify the funds before the goods get turned over to the purchaser. That way you know right away if it's legit or not.

I'm going to put up a fake ad on that site and when they show up with a fake check, I can beat their ass!

It almost happened to me before about 8years ago when I sold my park ave on eBay. This was before I aware of all these scams but the guy sent me USPS cert checks. Cashed them, 1 day later my account was out $2k and a special unit Western Union has contacted me to warn me I picked up fake checks. Luckily I still had the money and put it back in the bank and cleared it all up but what a sucky experience. Not to mention, my Paypal/ eBay incident a few months ago. Be aware of these cowards are out there.

Usernames on sites like that are always helpful if they're members. That way, the site can find them. I hope you get justice.

NO WAY I load the engine until you all go down to the bank and verify the check. It sucks, but man you got to verify, verify, verify.

Unfortunately, there's too much of that around here.

Thanks for the heads-up.

I never knew that a cahier's check could be bad.
Happens all the time, money orders too. Just be careful, some banks will prosecute the person that tries to cash the check. It happened to a friend of mine.

you can also call the bank the check is drawn on to confirm if it had been cancelled or even issued at all - but most definitely I always deal in CASH. That way there is no question.

Sorry that happened to you Dude.

What happened to you is very typical of sales over the internet-- primarily why I deal with CASH only when I sell anything over Craigslist. Of course, you still have to be aware about counterfit cash, but it's very easy to tell a fake dollar bill now.

If i take a check for items, i wait tell it clears the bank before they get there item.
I think there is someone on the internet wanting to buy parts, and they say they don't have a paypal account, but they say, would you take a check, then when you say yes, and tell them the check will have to clear the bank before they get there item, you never hear from them again.

I have sold a few cars and whenever I do and they give me even a certified check i wait for my bank to confirm the check has cleared before I sign the Title over and give it and the keys to them.
