|+1 Bookoo yard sale buyer scam I received a text inquiry about a heavy furniture item listed for sale asking if I would accept a check. After giving information on the type check required, the person sent a check by mail from an out of state company: Pioneer Oil & Gas, Beaver County Utah, 21 Beaver Lake Blvd, Milford, Utah 84751, check #2216 drawn on Zions First National Bank, One Main Street, Salt Lake City, Utah 84111, signed by Karen Zandi. This was a check we would accept. The check was for $1,650 more than the sale amount. We immediately tried to call the phone number from the text getting no answer. I received instructions to deposit, get the cash overage amount and to send it in a Moneygram to pay the mover. I had several texts in a row urging me to quickly do this. We sent a message that the sale was cancelled & we would turn the check over to law enforcement. We heard nothing else from the scammer. |

I was selling a guitar and amp and was contacted by a buyer (Larry Ben) that he was going to send a cashiers check for the purchase amount. I received a check for more than the agreed upon price and was then asked to get a money order for the difference and send that amount to the mover (christoper davis) and was then provided the address of 310 se midway 107 oak harbor washington 98277. I was contacted from several different numbers 615 669 6672 and 531 333 3758 and 901 296 3770. This is a shame that people would do this to other people. I just pray that this does cost me a lot of money that I do not have.
