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.

Sorry to hear that...

File a police report? Get their plate number? Any cameras around?

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.
