Scammer requested an Arbonne consultant and was referred to me, then requested to place an order. However, after being provided the total, she "accidentally" sent me an overpayment of $2,000, and requested that I send her the different via moneygram once the funds were released by my bank. This is a scam where, as soon as you send the money, the check will mysteriously bounce, even after your bank has released the funds.

Luckily, I figured out quickly that this was a scam and I did not send any money. DO NOT BE FOOLED! You think you have the money because your bank has released the funds, but your account will soon be negative if you send the money. If you ever receive an overpayment from someone you have never met, REFUSE TO CASH THE CHECK AND STOP DOING ANY BUSINESS WITH THAT PERSON.
