A guy claiming to be "Timothy Johnson" posted an ad on craiglist looking for people to help him move and would pay you 500 bucks. II emailed him saying I was interested but he said he was going to send me a check for 2000 bucks and I would take out my "work cut" but then I needed to send the rest to some art seller. This guy is trying to get you to send money before the fake check he sends you bounces in your account so he makes out with your loss. BEWARE

Buyer sent a check from 212 Tax Services, via USPS Priority Mail for $2975. for an item I advertised for $1200. They asked me to deposit the check and send the balance of the overpayment via Western Union to Jennifer Postolka, 1597 S. Water St, Kent, OH 44240
Then I was asked again in the same text message to send the money to Brian Kost 119 Richmond Rd, Hinesburg, Vermont. Nothing was said about where to ship the item or what company the shipper was. The name and address on the check is Pride Products Corporation, 4333 Veterans Memorial Highway, Ronkonkoma, NY 11779-7631.
