Everyone should write a scammer. It's fun and it keeps them busy. Think about it, while they're writing you, they aren't writing someone else.

So you might ask yourself, what do I do if I receive a scam letter, any scam letter? You should forward a copy to the the Attorney General's Office and inform the email provider, in this case it's Yahoo. To notify Yahoo, forward the scammers email to firstname.lastname@example.org. It seems that "abuse" is the standard address for reporting stuff like this to all email providers.
Yahoo will shut down this jerk's email in a day or two. That will temporally interrupt communications with his current crop of pigeons. Unfortunately, he will open another email account with yahoo the next day and start all over again. It seems that yahoo and hotmail and other free email services are unable or unwilling to verify the identity of those that want to use free email services to defraud us.
I hate the scammers and the companies that turn a blind eye and allow them to continue to operate
When something else comes up, I'll keep you informed.
Protect Yourself Ask for the phone number from your buyer or seller and get the address. After you talk with them, look up the number and address using an internet Phone Book. Make sure the address and phone number match. Ask to be paid with a bank draft, then call the bank to make sure the check is good.
The above is a sad comment on the state of the internet. The web is wonderful and dangerous at the same time. It's a tool but you need to know the safety rules before you use it without getting hurt

What Jeannie has is a scammer trying to send her a forged bank draft.
It's easy to make a one on a computer these days. The buyer tries to over
pays Jeannie then asks her to wire some money back to a third party. The money
she would have wired would be spent before her forged bank check bounce.
Jeannie would have been out a lot of money. Beware of this popular scam.
Perhaps it's a good idea to speak to the buyer directly by phone to make sure
he's really into railroading.
