Innisfil Woman Gets Wise To Scam Before It’s Too Late

Someone Tried To Pull The Overpayment Fraud On Her

Here’s a shrewed seller out of Innisfil. A woman called South Simcoe Police yesterday, after getting too much money on an item she was trying to sell online. Investigators say he sent her a cheque for a much larger amount than she was asking for, indicating the extra coin was to be given to a third party. Something smelled fishy about this one, so she checked first with the bank to verify the cheque was fake, and then with the police, who are now investigating. She isn’t out a single cent, and police warn to be wary of anyone who insists on overpaying for goods or services, it’s likely they’re using you to launder their money.
