Keith Williams Computer Support Scam - Craigslist 
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
Keith Williams
Offered to pay $800 to update the operating software on new PCs that would be shipped to my house for my son to update. After explaining to my son, that this was a scam, he went ahead and committed to doing the work. The first check arrived early this week, was confirmed as a valid active business account with Wells Fargo. And then the second check arrived from the same person with a different address today.

The check was an exact duplicate.

The checks were not cashed and will be turned into the local Wells Fargo office as well as the Hillsborough County Sheriff\'s Office being notified.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
