Scam!

So how does this play out? He sends the checks. You cash them and it takes time before they bounce. He gets the animals and you are out of luck? Is that it??

OP, thank you for this post. This scammer contacted me yesterday and today . Asked me to hold a gecko for him. "He" said he will send a cashier's check ASAP with an extra $50 to hold the animal. Which I never asked for it! A red flag went off, but I continued to entertain him. He wanted me to mark the animal as sold while I wait for his payment. Then I see this post. I should have just went with my gut instinct to begin with...

This is why we cannot let the BOI die. We NEED this. I really missed the days when people actually share and interact on forums not on the these facebook...gg

@ Will Bird I am also curious as how it is supposed to play out. Who would ship out their animal before the check clears?
