|+1 Craigslist wanting to buy furniture / Jones Calderon /|
I was already suspicious of this person when they wanted to send a check, but it became very obvious after that.
Check was from Advantage Metals LLC Fort Laudedale, FL.

We were contacted via email by Jones Calderon about purchasing a chair we had listed on Craigslist. He wanted to pay an extra $30 to reserve the chair for his purchase. We agreed to that request. Then he said he is out of state, but moving to our state, and therefore needed to have movers pick up the chair. He mailed a check to us via FedEx, and said the check would include extra $ to pay the movers. When check arrived, it included an extra $1100 for the movers! He had a lengthy explanation about the movers picking up items from other properties, etc. We took the check to our bank and are waiting to see if it clears - expecting it will not.
