Marketplace Scam: Chantilly VA

The complainant listed an item for sale online. He was contacted by a person claiming to be interested in purchasing the item. The buyer sent a check for much more than the item amount, saying the extra money was for the shipping company. The complainant deposited the check and used a cash app to send the difference to the “shipping company”. A few days later the complainant learned that the check bounced, and he was out the money.
