Warning: The ASUI office receives daily reports from users who have been contacted by criminals responding to their Vandal Trading Post listings. Here are some common approaches:

»

Scammers will reply with offers involving fake cashier's checks or wire transfers. They pose as buyers from overseas or a distant place. The cashier's check may clear, but once the fraud is discovered, your bank will hold you responsible.

»

A distant buyer offers a cashiers check or money order for the item sight unseen. It may involve a third party shipping agent who gives you a fraudulent cashiers check or money order. Once the check is deposited, it will bounce and your bank or credit union will hold you responsible.

»

A distant buyer wants to send you a cashier's check for more than you are selling your item for, on the condition that you will send the difference back to them. This is always a scam. The cashier's check is fraudulent, and in addition to you losing the money you sent, your bank or credit union will hold you accountable for the fraudulent check.

»

Someone (often claiming to be from another country) offers to pay for multiple months rent on a house or apartment they have not yet seen. They (or a third party) will send you a cashiers check or money order for well over the total rent, on the condition that you wire the difference back to them so they can pay for their travel expenses. This is a variation of the distant buyer scam above. The cashier's check is fraudulent. You will lose the money you sent, and you will have to pay your bank or credit union for the fraudulent check.
