I`m not exactly sure how, but the voice-relay, deaf thing has something to do with a scam. A few years ago a guy called the place I was working and ordered 12 fuel pumps for Chevy Suburbans. He used the voice-relay thing. He said he owned a taxi company in Canada and fuel pumps were too expensive there. Needless to say, he used a bad credit card and somehow got away with about $3000 in fuel pumps. The voice-relay phone number made it difficult to find him ...
Another variation of this scam- They make an offer to buy your car, boat, or widget but unfortunately made the cashier's check out for a larger amount of money. They will ask for you to go ahead and cash the check and send them the difference back by Western Union, wire transfer, or any method. Here's the catch- the cashier's check is forged with a real account number on it, problem is the account number belongs to someone else. Example cashier's check says Wachovia Bank for Acme Boats but the routing numbers belong to McDonalds, FedEx or some other large company. You cash the check, send the over payment to the buyer (crook), by the time McDonalds and the bank catch on to the program the crook is long gone with your boat and your cash.
Couple of years ago I had someone try this when I had a Camaro for sale. I asked the joker if "this" ever works- he flat out told me yes, enough people fall for it for me to make a living.
Southwest Florida has had major problems with a ring of crooks printing their own payroll checks and cleaning up. The scumbags buy blank checks at Office Depot, print payroll checks for all of their buddies and spend the day driving around town cashing payroll checks at Walmart, Supermarkets, etc..
And they want to outlaw assault rifles?? Aaaaggghhhhh
Newest message from them.
Please let me have your names, contact address, phone numbers, age and your reason for taking up this job so that we can proceed accordingly....
any suggestions? do we play it out? I'm a little bored!
I went through this about a month ago. Out of the blue a check drawn on a University of Alabama account for $3100 arrives at my door, unexpected, after my response to one of these e-mails. They want me to send back.(.ding, ding, ding,... my mental alarm is going off that this does not make any sense,... ) money that I do not use for office supplies for a USA based collection company. I try to contact the sender of the check, since a name and a phone number from Tenessee were on the FedEx shipping information.
Let's review, a check from Alabama, sender from Tenessee and the initial e-mail from a person who is in another country who wants me to do collection work for them here in the USA (I am an attorney).
The phone number for the sender's message box is full, there is not a message when you call (no name). I reply by e-mail, that I do NOT want this check, NOR did I give permission for a $3100 check to be sent to me. I refuse to cash the check.
I get a message that the authorities will be in contact with me for misappropriating company funds (what f*cking company funds was my reaction); so I call the local police department, give them a copy of the e-mail messages, and the check. One hour later after they investigate, it is a scam. Like an earlier post, once they get your bank account information then the scam is successful.
The night I came home from vacation this $3100 check was sitting on my doorstep in the Fed Ex envelope. Once I opened the envelope and saw the check I had thought it was a retainer for a new client, and or maybe I just forgot that I had spoken with a potential client about a case, but once I started reviewing the e-mails (that I did not open while on vacation) I soon realized that this was trouble. It was not the $3100 windfall, it was nothing but trouble, and I am glad I had the police got involved.

I have zero patience for this type of nonsense were there are victims to these scams. Gino, you will not be a victim , nor will I, but there is someone out there who will be a victim, it is inevitable.
I got a couple of those for some large ticket items i was selling, sent me a check for more than the item and then asked i send them half the difference back, like I am some kind of an idiot, played with them for a while just to waste there time and ended up giving it to the bank that the check was supposedly drawn from, they had hundreds of these fake checks from that person. Contact the banks fraud department and save all the e-mail details and forward it to them, better to help shut them down and save some poor bastard down the road.
I always f*ck with them. For instance, if I had a red Corvette for sale, and get an email from them saying they'd like to buy my "item" I always respond with something like, so your interested in buying my Ford Tractor, correct? They're so stupid they dont even know what they are responding to.
