My mom has a couple of horses for sale, which are listed on the internet. She received an email from a person from Wales. This person stated that they were interested in purchasing one of the horses and that he had a business associate in the USA that owed him some money. My mom was asking something like $2500 for the horse and the emailer said that his contact in the US would give her $8000.00 in a cashiers check and for my mom to give the change to his associate who would forward it to Wales. Luckily and unfortunately she knew of this con because I had told her of it happening to a person at my work.....too bad he had fallen for it. My mom caught on to his game and is not indebt to her bank for $8000.00. I know we hear about it in the news alot...just curious as to whether or not this has happened to anyone.
