Jose Crespo

I've been contacted by a Jose Crespo. I sent him a link to the snakes available. He then emailed me back that he was sending payment. I quickly emailed back to ask him which snake he wanted so I could hold it for him. I never got a response. He said he was sending a Cashier check so he needed my address, and phone. Continuing to ignore several requests to ID the snakes he wants? Now I get a phone text that he over paid by mistake the agreed amount. There was no agreed amount. He said to cash it, and he would tell me what to do with the overpayment. This screams scam to me! Has anyone else been contacted by Jose Crespo?

Agreed, I've seen similar scams before where they send Monet orders, and ask you tio send back a portion. The money comes out of your account in the end.

Scam

I have been contacted also by Jose and I went through the same events. I finally deleted his message.

If you would, post how this scammer contacted you (email address / phone number). This is probably linked to a recent influx of this sort of scam. Maybe our mods can find a link between our not-so-dear scammers.

Classic money order scam. Don't cash it, and if you feel like it, tell him you destroyed it.

You could always tell him you gave it to the postmaster general as proof of maul fraud.

What was the email address and phone number?
If we have those, we might be able to ID this guy.
