Hi! I am actually new being SB. I met someone on SA and then we got along. He did not ask for my banking information, instead he asked for my full name and email address. I gave my name and also my second email address. I was not expecting that he will send huge amount of money. On the email stating “my payroll won’t want to compromise the threshold limit of issuing a lesser amount in check…I will be trusting you with excess, and think how honest and trustworthy you can be. Have the check deposited and send the screenshot of the confirmation”
I am still not depositing the money and the SD is asking me now. I am just afraid with what I have read on different forums about depositing the money with cheque and bouncing back.
It’s a scam. Don’t cash the cheque. Report and block this ‘SD’.
The cheque is fraudulent. Issued by him using a stolen bank account. Once you pay it in and send the screenshot, he’ll know your bank account details. He’ll immediately ask you to return some of the money buying iTunes/Google Play giftcards and emailing the serial numbers. A few days later, the actual owner of the bank account will discover the fraud. The money will be withdrawn from your account and the cops will be on your doorstep.
