Anybody deal with a Rooney Neil?

December 10, 2012 02:13

We received a purchase request from a Rooney Neil.
Would like to pay via cashiers check & arrange their own shipping. I am not shipping anything out until a week after the check clears.

Any information will be help full.

wouldn't a cashiers check be safe?

Not if the check uses real numbers. Then yes it will clear but 2 to 3 weeks later, It will come back as a stolen or fraudulent check. I personally prefer credit card. I can call the bank and verify the shipping and billing.

I got a message from a few other users, and this person is shopping around with them as well, offering them payments in the form of a cashiers check and not asking any questions about the products they wish to purchase.

A cashier's check is not fool proof. You can sometimes call the bank for merchant verification, but even that is not always certain. If it is a significant amount, a wire is best. If it is a smaller amount, you may want to consider PayPal.

I received a purchase request from Rooney Neil. He sent me a check (which bounced) for more than the invoice amount. Even before the check cleared, he started asking me to send the additional money through western union.

Fortunately, I didn't send the money and I told him to wait until the funds are transferred or cancel the check and send me a new one for the correct amount.

DOtmed should block this type of people.

From Craigslist:
NEVER WIRE FUNDS VIA WESTERN UNION, MONEYGRAM or any other wire service - anyone who asks you to do so is likely a scammer.
FAKE CASHIER CHECKS & MONEY ORDERS ARE COMMON, and BANKS WILL CASH THEM AND THEN HOLD YOU RESPONSIBLE when the fake is discovered weeks later.
