I deposit a check sent to my address. I was asked to wait on it to process and then follow directions on what to buy or send back. I could not withdraw and called my bank. The bank informed me the check was counterfeit and my account was closed and I could no longer bank with them.

i received text saying they are fine with the price and want to know if i will take a check.even though the bank might let you deposit the check the scammer can stop payment after you give them your item and you are left without your stuff and you owe the bank for the bad check,accept NO checks under any conditions unless it is a cashiers check in person AT THE BANK with the buyer in person.the text is written with poor english and bad sentence structure and they say someone else will pick up the item.
