An update on the Craigslist employment scams

I went ahead and "fell for" the Yamaha car wrap scam to see what would happen. This is what happens when I'm bored at home. Fortunately, I may have a job that starts next week. That's if I survive orientation. I can't wait to start school next month!
The idiots actually sent me a check for $1900! Like I'm stupid enough to cash it. It was mailed from Phoenix and the return address is for a school in Fort Worth, TX. The check is from a bank in Washington, DC. These people get around.
I called the school and Yamaha and spoke to people there. I gave them all the info I have and I hope it does some good. I emailed the bank because after over 10 minutes on hold I got bored and went off to do something else. They may or may not get back to me.
The lady from Yamaha in California was very glad I called and alerted them. The Detective man from the school in Texas actually took a statement from me over the phone! It was really fun to be doing the right thing and I hope these boogers are brought down!
Meanwhile it's back to boring for me. Don't forget I'm gratefully accepting donations for school so please pass it on.
Have fun!

    1. That would be cool! I just want to help stop these jerks before someone looses their home or worse because of them.
