Tried to buy something off of my Facebook marketplace post

  • Monetary Loss: $0
A profile by the name of Jessica Barely asked me to email her mom because she was looking for something similar to my post on Facebook marketplace. “Amanda” seemed interested, was very pushy for me to not sell the item to anyone else, and said she was sending me a check. She mentioned she wanted this transaction to be handled with good faith and acted like I was difficult to trust. The person had horrible grammar, seemed unintelligent, and eventually got very rude and pushy after I was questioning what she was asking of me. FYI: the item I was selling were table numbers for a wedding-I make them myself and sell on Etsy and theknot.com, I wanted to increase my sales by posting on Facebook. She tried to tell me to give the extra money to her movers after I deduct the $150 for myself. I received a check for $1330 from a strange company and no return address. I ripped up the check-I had suspicions of her trying to scam me a day or so before the check arrive.
