Jacob Williams

Between 10 March and 21 March 2013, I was trying to sell a Boat. I received an EMAIL (from: [email protected]) and TEXT offer (from JACOB WILLIAMS, New York area...#646-355-8177, additional phones numbers were give as 917-636-7318, and 646-217-4771) and a final price was agreed on. On 13/14 March I was mailed 2 checks for $2,990.00 each and told to deposit them. The next day I was told to wire transfer 3 different amounts using Wal-Mart’s Money Gram Services to another person (CLAUDIA GARRISON, 170 Melwood Ave, Dayton Ohio...#937-668-8312) who would provide services such as a visual appraisal and arraying shipping of the boat. At the last stage of the process Jacob Williams (NY) declared that he would have to back out of the deal because of a family emergency and he needed the money for other things and wanted his earnest money back. This time, the money was to be sent to his assistance (ISABEL REYES, 5358 Key Largo, Tampa, Fla.) That’s when (after 6 days) the first check came back with insufficient funds (20 March) and I was told by my bank it was counterfeit. The next day the second check also bounded. After I asked him about the bounced checks, I have never heard from him again, but at least I still have my boat. All of this was done by email and text messages to and from locations in New York and Dayton Ohio. PS...The checks were mailed to me using USPS tracking. The emails were very detailed as to give the appearance of a boat dealer or broker—very long and sometime repetitive.
