Scammer Information Details of Scam Report
I received an email from a lady saying that she wanted to order some scentsy. I told her I would be happy to take her order, but I would not place the order until I received payment. She said that her "debtor" would be sending her money and that she would then send me money. Well she sent me an email saying that her "debtor" had screwed up and sent all of the money to me and that she was hoping that I would be honest and trusting enough to only take the money that was owed to me and wanted to know if I could send the rest of the money to her daughters wedding planner via money gram. I told her that I would be happy to send the rest to her. She gave the address of where she wanted the scentsy sent to which was in Copperas Cove, TX. The address she gave me for the wedding planner was in Utah. I was already thinking it was a scam when she asked me to send the extra money somewhere else. I ended up receiving a check in the mail in this huge envelope with a postmark from Minnesota, but yet the check supposedly came from an account in Tennessee. Just looking at the check, you could tell it was fake. To make sure, I took the check to a couple banks and they all said that it was fake. After I found out for sure that the check was fake, I texted and emailed this "Ranee Smith/Ranee Derrett person and I told her that I didn't appreciate her trying to scam me. Of course she played dumb. A couple days later, I received another check in the mail, for the same amount, just with different names on it. Needless to say, they weren't able to scam me and I did turn over copies of all emails, text messages, checks and envelopes to the Sherriff's office. I really hope that the people doing this scam crap get caught and spend a long time in jail. That's where they belong.
