Guy Trolls Craigslist Scammer Into Thinking The FBI Is After Him In The Most Expert Way Possible

The basic premise of the following scam is that the supposed “buyer” sends a fake check to the seller for more than the amount advertised. Rather than just cancel the check and send a new one, the buyer asks for a wire transfer of the remaining difference. Ideally the victim sends the difference before the bank realizes the check is fraudulent (usually takes 1-2 days) and the buyer runs off with the money before the seller is any wiser.

Clearly, this scam did not work here.
