Person at phone number 337-418-9693 sent a text to buy a kindle from me that was posted on BooKoo.com and a vehicle from someone else. He sent me a check for $2,300 and told me to provide a Western Union to Lawrence Bess, 3317 Riveria Drive, Key West, FL 33040, phone 338-718-8029.
The check is from Kent Hill School, 1614 Main Street, Kent's Hill, ME 04349, drawn on account 2426202319 at TD Bank, 112 Main Street, Fairfield, ME 04349, I went to cash the check, keep $150.00 for the kindle and western union Lawrence Bess the rest ($2,150) that was completed on August 6, 2013.
On August 9, 2013, I get a letter from my bank with a copy of the check with "REFER TO MAKER" stamped on the check with a letter stating that the check was returned unpaid and the debited my account for the amount of the check plus a $10.00 fee. The letter is signed by Daniel Fontenot, Fraud Investigator from Barksdale Federal Credit Union, 720 Northgate Road, Bossier City L A 71112 (my bank).
I tried to contact Lawrence Bess and no answer and no reply to my text.
So I was charged twice for the check, $2,300 for the check, $2,125.00 for Western Union, $25.00 fee for Western Union, $10.00 reversal fee from bank.
Want all my money back
