Re: Anybody ever have a random check sent Fed ex to you?
I just recently got a check for 2500 and this guy on craigslist keeps telling me to cash it and send it to someone... sounds like a scam right?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 5571163


Yes it is. I got one for a lot like that one time. I told them that my pet mountain lion ate it (bastard took it right off the table when I wasn't looking) and they needed to send another one back to me and this time I put it in a safe spot. They told me that they were "very angry" with me that I would let my pet mountain lion just eat it like that because the check is worth so much money but that they would send me another one. I told them I also changed my address to something like..."123 suckmynuts ave." and I never did see another check. Can't figure out why.

Re: Anybody ever have a random check sent Fed ex to you?
My 16 year old daughter has received 2 of these checks from different makers drawn on different banks. I work for a bank and called to verify funds and YES, they are fraudulent! Not sure what the scam is because it didn't include ANYTHING but the checks. Beware...if you cash them the bank will come after you for the funds when the check bounces!

In small detail, the check is from Wachovia from a software company that I've never heard of, but they do have a legit website/corp. on the west coast.
 Quoting: Priority


That surely sounds legit. A company out of the blue sending you a check for a large sum of money for no reason. Hell yea, cash it.

It all makes sense....

Ugg, why do people write like this? Bad spelling, improper grammar & no puntuation! You're not texting your bff! Scary that any school would accept her, even an 'online' school. Cash the check sweety, then take the money & get your GED. Focus on the English portion please!picksbus

Re: Anybody ever have a random check sent Fed ex to you?
yea, someone wanted to buy something from craigslist from me (drums) and overpayed me by 2000 dollars. So I was in question right away. Its a shitty looking check anyway, I know its fake without even having to ask.

The reason they overnight ship it, is that it is harder to track. and the scam is somewhat convinceing to say older or desperate peoples, and I'm sure it works on enough people to be able to afford a measly 30 shipping fee.

I was charged with multiple counts of atttempted theft, counterfeit check, and theft of movable property. I am currently awaiting trial in Philadelphia county.
the cops didn't want to beleive me, but thankfully I do have Fed Ex fraud department helping me.

The check will be accepted by your bank, you will send them money and it will be bounced by the bank in 1 week-10 days. Happened a lot in my industry.

Re: Anybody ever have a random check sent Fed ex to you?
I just received a check today from fedex for $1850. They say it is for a mystery shopping solutions. I will never deposit in my checking account, but thought about going to the bank on the check and verifing it is real. The company wants me to keep $200 and western union the rest to another receivers address and tell them how my transaction went. I am not suppose to tell the western union agent that I am participating in this. I am not sure if this is a scam or not! Has anyone heard of this one as a scam?

Re: Anybody ever have a random check sent Fed ex to you?
For a large sum of money? I did today. It's not a scam either.

I've been researching the check all night and am finding out it's totally legit. For a big ass sum of money.

I'm seriously debating to myself to just cash this in tomorrow morning right away.

Oh ya it was sent to me Fed EX Express Priority overnight. So whoever sent it to me in my name signed and everything had to fork out at least 30$ for mailing it...

Re: Anybody ever have a random check sent Fed ex to you?
These people(let's call them the scammers) are not paying for shipping. I didn't get a check. I received a call from an individual (let's call her victim #1) that received a check via Fedex. The fedex label had our company (I'll call us victim #2) as the shipper, but the check inside was from yet a third company. I talked to the third company. You guessed it, they are victim #3. People all over the place are receiving checks from the third company that the third company never sent. Scammers are using other people's account numbers to pay for shipping. All victims are in danger of becoming gobemouches, please don't become one. Don't cash these checks. Call the authorities! You have physical evidence on your hands.

Do not cash the check. If they say it was sent in an error (as they will do most likely if it is a scam), you then do not have to refund them out of your pocket and just ask them to come and pick the check or have it back with charges to receiver. Most likely you will not hear of them afterward.

DON'T CASH THE CHECK. I got the same scam. I googled the company and the bank and they were legit. Same thing via FedEx overnight. I cashed the $4k check and it bounced. Today I got another check via FedEx same amount. Different bank different payor. My bank wants its money back. There was no such account# at the issuing bank. What is their scam and their motive? The signatures look the same even tho they came from different banks in different states. My bank sez who can tell, and probably the scam artist will never get caught. DON'T CASH THE CHECK.

Re: Anybody ever have a random check sent Fed ex to you?
i got a check for about 2 grand via fed ex my bank looked it over told me to deposit it so i did and it had cleared within 24 hours, im so lost right now, the check is not the amount we agreed on, he took the product i sold him or someone did because the car has been towed by a gypsy looking guy...the name on the check did not match the name on the envelope, then he emailed me and said he was going to be sending a check and that he was an fbi agent and owned the company that was named on the first check, so either he was a rookie scammer or a complete idiot...who knows...but if you get a check and have it checked out and the routing numbers called in and your bank says deposit it and see if it clears, if it clears then its no longer on you if its a bad check its on the person whom issued it!!

Re: Anybody ever have a random check sent Fed ex to you?
Yeah this is an old ass thread.

Here is what happened to OP. OP was in the USA and most states will haul your ass to jail if you try and cash this. This is called Check Fraud so thats the end of it. OP should have asked if it was real and if OP walked straight into the bank to cash it the bank would have literally contacted the authorities.

I know because this happened to me once but I was smart. I told them that I am aware this could be a scam so just see if it can be cashed. If not, then i'll open the story on where it came from. If it cashed then good. It didn't cash and no one got in trouble.

Scammers are sneaky and smart with this, don't let them sucker you in. (This is for future readers as OP is most likely in a cell)
I don't tolerate dense and ignorant people but I do have hearts for people. This makes it a win on both ends. Share the Love! The planet is too small for hate in the Universe, let's keep it together :)

Also, do me a favor please and click under my image the green thumb button to give me good Karma. Much is appreciated and I thank you.
