Details of Scam Report
If you read the email transmission between "sandy" and I it sounds more and more like a scam. I became skeptical and played along to see what information I could get to file this.
AS you can see all "Sandy" wanted was a money order and tracking number.
I did cash the check and wait for funds to clear, it never did. I'm glad I never sent $2,000 of my own money to some person and address that did not exist.
I assume he/she is working with someone in the postal business. I don't have any idea how he/she could intersect my money order and pick it up from a non-existent address. ?????
I'll be reporting this through my bank and filed a criminal report with the internet investigation services with police department here in baltimore.
I am renting my timeshare for 1,200 for a week.
I can request it for August 20-27 and see if it is available.
Once it is scheduled how would you like to conduct payment and exchange of paperwork?
Thank you

I received a check for $3,500 yesterday. Was this from you? It was not a money gram but a real check from a company. Is this correct?
Please let me know before I proceed.
If so, I will keep $1,200 for condo rental. Send $2,000 to traveling agent you requested.
Please let me know before I cash this check.

Hello ,
Good Morning, How are you today and hope you had a wonderful weekend and rest. I could understand you were not able to get things done for Saturday regarding the transfer of the funds to the agent due to the weekend. I'll want you to kindly take care of the money transfer for the Agent first thing in the morning through money gram money transfer and email me with the information when the fund is sent to pass the information to the agent and upon the receipt of the funds, All further arrangement can be done.
Below is the information to send the $2000 through money gram minus the transfer charges :
Receiver Name:...: Michael Dyer Address.....: 609 Umbria St City...........: Athens State:......: OH ZIP CODE ....: 45701
Reference Number Amount sent after money gram charges Sender's name and address on the receipt .
Thanks , Sandy Powell

I have never done this before. I ma skeptical.. typed that wrong the check is for $3,500. Does Michael know how much he is getting? Should I still make a money gram for $2,000 or $2,200?
I hope this is legal and legitimate activity. I am collecting $1,200 for the rental of my timeshare for the week of August 18-25, 2013. This is not for a purchase or any other trade, correct?
I cannot do any of these types transactions on Saturday after 1 pm or on Sundays here where I live. I am able to make the transaction today. Please assure me that you are only renting my week this year.
Also when this check is cashed that I am any in any trouble. The check is from Charles Schwab & Company from Phoenix Arizona from Citibank. Is this correct?
Thank you

I will have to wait until tomorrow. My bank did not clear your check yet. The teller would not honor me a money order until check has cleared. I do not have $2,155.00 over balance to pay for this money order today.
Tomorrow morning first thing I will send you tracking number of money order to address you sent
