I was scammed.

The scammer sent a check of $36,177.47 that was deposited at a local Ann Arbor bank on 7/31/2020. The scammer wanted me to send to him 95% of that amount and keep 5% for my trouble. I wrote personal checks starting late 8/3 when I saw the funds in my account. I spoke with the local bank yesterday and they stated that the check from Lengzion Oil was bogus and this caused a series of overdrawn funds. I did not send Lengzien Oil any money which they asked for.
