The person contacted us requesting to buy our vehicle listed on Craigslist and mailed us a check for over the amount and said the rest was to pay for the movers to come and get the vehicle and bring it to him in Arkansas.
So the check was pending and put on hold but we weren’t notified and thought it would go through or would be told earlier if it was fake (it was). We then in the mean time paid using Wal-Mart to Wal-Mart which the guy insisted we use and sent the remainder the “movers fee” to him only to find out the check was fake.
We are out $1300 and Wal-Mart will do nothing. It was signed for in person by the scammer and picked up. We have been communicating with the scammer via text message the entire time. We have filed a police report and are waiting to see what they will do. We are poor college students who just lost everything.
