Scam alert-

Hello Y'all-
We have a tractor for sale on a couple of sites. Just been contacted by a con artist that wants to pay more for the machine then it is worth. Sound familiar? This is how it apparently works: He sends a cashiers check that looks real enough. Then you are to cash it and forward the extra money to his shipper by Western Union. It must all be done on the same day that you deposit your funds in your account. Within 7 days or so the bank informs you that the check was fraudulent
and you are out the $$$ you sent to his shipper.

You probably already know about these types of scams, but I felt like I needed to mention it again. Here is his handle:

The guys email smelled fishy enough to me.
I've seen several other postings on YT about similar 'arrangements'.

Take Care Out There-

Mike D.

We frequently need reminding that not everyone is as honest as we are. Thanks.
