Overpayment Scam
Received an Email from someone who wanted to order Mary Kay productsEmail Attached
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Kimberly Lopez
Email Address:
   kimberlylopez001@outlook.com
I received an email from Kimberly Lopez wanting to order Mary Kay Products. She said she would be getting a check to me and she would \'Pick Up\' the order. ( I was warned from a friend that these types of Scams were going on.)
A week later I received a check from \'Aetna\' Life Insurance Co, delivered by FedX. (A rather large check $1,900.00) it looked convincing...like a beneficiary payment from a Life Insurance policy. No paperwork included to explain Why I was receiving such a check..?
The same day I got an email from Kimberly Lopez telling me that she \'Knew\' I had received the check and she had a tracking # for the check.
She went on to advise me to get the check in the bank ASAP.....and to send Her back the \'difference\' of money, (after I pay myself for the Mary Kay order). She gave me the name to mail the difference of Money to; Anthony Mcgaw, in Helena, Montana 59603.
She said she would be coming to town soon and come to MY house to pick up the Mary Kay order!.. Eeek!
I then realized that it was a \'Scam\' And I sent her an email telling her so!

BEWARE!!!! I would of had to Pay the Bank back the money, (for the fraudulent check) on top of loosing Mary Kay Product to this SCAM!!!
