I was trying to sell and iphone 5 and she sent my an email if the phone is still available. She tell me that she will give me an extra $50 dollar to hold the item and later ask my for the final price. After both of us agree send me a check that look very suspicious, but I deposit it anyway. She send me a total of $1,730 and told me to keep $200 for myself and sent the rest to the 3rd party mover via Moneygram 10 minutes. I sent her the money and one of my friend told me it could be scam so I canceled the transaction.
