 EmbarrassedThis is the preferred method for scammers to buy something, send you a chasier's check then cancel the check only to have funds withdrawn from your account.  I used to deal with ebay since it's infacny and it's been a vehicle for scammers to steal your identity plus you shipped your goods and may not be able to retrieve it.  He'll just turn around anf flip (sell) it for a profit since he "stole" it from you.  How, the cancelled cashier's check has your account number and possibly your signature on it.  Sorry to hear of your loss.

I no longer use ebay because of this and if I do, every transaction is via PayPal only since they cover situations like this.   Angry

I notice that you stated that he used NFCU, Find out if he is employed by that service and if so then contact the security police detachment there and file your paperwork with them also. The service takes a dim view of fraud ant theft by civilians or enlisted.

I sent a letter directly to NFCU's CEO and President, along with their fraud/security department..for such a low $ amount, they probably chucked it, but I highly recommended they re-visit their cashier check handling policies as they are nowhere like any other national bank I have ever dealt with...

Hopefully, this won't and cannot happen again....

you need to contact the post office too.. since he sent you the funds via the USPS, this is also considered postal fraud...

Recent update.  I had sent letters to the CEO of NFCU, their fraud department and their funds dispersement department, along with a copy to the Pensacola PD and the local law enforcement in the particular county (forget the name at the moment) regarding the bank fraud, internet fraud and mail fraud.  Haven't heard back from them, yet, but did receive another Cashier's Check from this scammer, no note, nothing, just a cashier's check.

So I took it to NFCU branch here, and had them insure it was funded, etc. and cashed it.  Even though I replaced the lost funds out of my pocket over a month ago, at least I have the satisfaction that some heat must have made this scammer concerned and sent the funds to irridicate himself.  Issue closed but still will remind indivduals to NOT DO BUSINESS with this character under any circumstance.  I suspect as I have already stated that he may have mental or personality disorders/issues.  Don't know, and don't care.

Applying heat does help it appears.

On QRZ it states that W0BKR is the "QRZ Admin" for KJ4TOF.

So, you knew this person prior to all of this??

I am just a bit confused.

This is the reason I quit e-bay, just too many of them out there. The economic failures brought out every scam artist in the country.

The only way you can get shafted by paypal is if the buyer pays thru paypal with his credit card. In your paypal account area, you can stipulate that you only accept paypal payments if the money came out of a bank account. With a credit card the buyer can stop payment for any old excuse. Not so with a bank acount.
