Q. I was selling some of my personal effects on Craig’s List. A man contacted me and we decided on a price. The amount totaled $600. He sent me a certified bank check for $2,000. He said that he made a mistake on the amount and asked me to send him the difference. Red flag, I know it’s a scam, but the check looks real. I assume it’s a scam and actually would like to know what to do with the check and who to report the incident to? S.P., Morrisville.
