HOME BUYER SCAM ALERT !

MOBILEHOME.NET ( January 12, 2007 ) -- An attempted home buyer scam has been reported by several homeowners listing homes.

Variations of this scheme have been reported.  Most involve a buyer from the UK ( England ).  Be alert to any home buyer requiring the home seller to send payment to a third party from excess proceeds received in a CASHIERS CHECK.

The basic scam involves the home buyer ( SCAMMER ) sending the home seller a CASHIERS CHECK for more than the asking price of the home for sale.

The SCAMMER wants the home seller to send a payment to a third party from the EXCESS PROCEEDS of the CASHIERS CHECK.

The scam comes in when the CASHIERS CHECK is found to be a " FORGERY ". 

The SCAMMER hopes you send your check or money before his BAD CHECK is found out.

Please be alert to any variation of this scam.
