|Beware of online scams|
There is a new scam discovered on campus and the local area where an individual sells something online, such as through the UND Underground web site. An individual contacts you to purchase the item, then "mistakenly" sends you too much money. This can take the form of a personal check, money order or cashiers check. The buyer requests that you send them the difference since they overpaid. The seller gives the buyer the item sold and the difference, then, days later, discovers that the check/money order is false. Now the seller is out the item and the money they sent the to buyer.
If this happens to you, do not send the item or any money until the check/money order clears your bank. If it turns out that the check or money order is false then please discuss what to do next with your bank. They may suggest that you contact law enforcement. -- ITSS.
