Few days ago on July 11th, I posted a listing on Craigslist of my TV I was selling since I needed additional funds to provide for the upcoming school semester at Temple University for tuition, books, and housing.
Unfortunately, this led me to becoming a victim of fraud.
The money I have been setting aside for the upcoming semester through my summer intership with TD Bank took a huge hit.
I was naive in trusting a total stranger on Craigslists. They sent me a check in the total amount of what I am asking for in this fund ($1725) and wanted me to deposit the portion that was for the TV and the rest wire transferred to their "mover". I did not realize what I was doing until it was too late and the transfer had been initiatied.
I have reached out to my bank and placed a police report, but so far nothing has happened. I am in desparate plea for any assistance available.
I never thought that I would be a victim of fraud. This just goes to show how you must always be careful who you interact with and I hope this happens to any of you.
Thank you for taking the time out to look at my post. Any donation amount would be greatly appreciated! Again, thank you for all your generous help and I hope this does not happen to you or anyone else you know.
