Scammer Information Details of Scam Report
I'm selling a boat on Craig's List. Contacted via text first from 435-558-1513 claims to be Gerry Wollam from Utah. Says he will send a bank check for my asking price. I ask him to call me but he never does. Then later claims he needs me to pay the shipper and will send me a check for my asking price and the amount to pay the shipper. He then changes numbers to 801-413-3407. Recognizing this as a scam (I work in fraud prevention) plus some problems with the English and the changing story, he claims to be the buyer, agent shipper all in the same text. Check is delivered via UPS and the return label says itâ€™s from a Roxanne Moore, 321 8th Ave Ste104A, New York, NY 10018. Check is a business check drawn on Bank of America â€“ Atlanta Dekalb County GA, the business name is Sterling Collision Centers Inc, 9 Tech Circle, Natick MA 01760. I called their corporate office accounting department and verified this check is fraud. Accounting person told me I was the third person today to call her about a fraud check. The fraud check does have their account number on it so it has been compromised. This is a typical overpayment scheme donâ€™t fall for it.

Received a check today from the same Roxanne Moore lady. Figured it was a scam when the check we received was two thousand dollars more than the item we had listed. I contacted the business listed on the check to comfirm and owner of the business stated that he had been receiving calls all day long about the same issue and that he had contacted his bank and closed the account. I also called the bank and will be mailing ups envelope and check to them. My husband sent a text to the number and telling the other party that we were both in law enforcement (which we are)and will be submitting this over for evidence. The other party sent that her husband was in the CIA and that we better not do anything with the check..lol Anyway hope this helps prevent someone else from falling for the scam....
Business that was listed on the check was Foresight Finishing LLC out of Tempa, AZ
Return Address on the UPS Form was
321 8th AVE STE 104A
New York NY 10018
