Someone masquerading as someone I know requested I send a check to a vendor who is identified in the scammer's name. They sent the vendor info along with a ship to address of *** Connetquot Avenue, Central Islip NY. Don't know if is the person is the scammer, but the person who would have received the check would be using that name to cash it.

  • Monetary Loss: $2850.00
Richard sent me a cashier's check for $2850 and told me to deposit it into my account. He said don't try to cash anywhere other than the bank. After the money cleared I took my $400 that was paid to me and then got the walmart gift card he told me to get with the other $2400. I scratched the backs off and sent pictures of the front and back of the cards and sent him the pictures as he asked me to do. After doing all this the bank called me and told me the check was fraudulent and I have 90 days to pay all the money back.
