    Re: Scammer warning! Avoid John Demere.

    Received an email from John regarding my 89 Deville - same name, even the same phone number as mentioned before. Stupid idiot!
    I wonder if I should ask for the cheque - just to send it to the company he stole them from..

    Re: Scammer warning! Avoid John Demere.

    I also received a message from this guy this past weekend (11-12-11) asking about a '64 Coupe I had listed. The email didn't read right...it was the punctuation and wording. Anyway...I told him I sold the car, but had a '67 DeVille convertible I may part with...just in case it was legit. He responded about 1:45 AM and the email still didn't seem right. He wanted my lowest price and then discuss payment. !?! Glad I looked up his name and found this thread...no more communications with this guy. I deleted the ad last night and his email!

    Re: Scammer warning! Avoid John Demere.

    So figured I would update this thread with the latest information. So John sent me a check and it was from a company and I contected them and they were aware of some either missing or duplicated/created checks that were coming in.

    So the scam is: He sends you a check you cash it. It likely would have cleared. I was suppose to then send a check to some person to come look at the car. They never show but cash your check which will clear and by time the company that is really the victim in all this realizes a bogus check was cashed in your name the check you sent out has already cleared too. So you have to return the full amount of money and stuck going after John Demere yourself for the portion your out. good luck with that.

    So I emailed the check the Fed-Ex reciept and everything I could gather back to the company that owns the checks as they had already started dealing with the feds on this case. Hope they catch him. Whatever his name is.
