Same thing happened to me today. Was going to pay $50 extra to hold the item for 2 business days and would send a check. Once it clears they would have movers come and pick up the tiny item. Told them sorry cash only and haven’t heard anything from them since.

@Skylar526--Thank you for sharing your experience. It's a great thing that you didn't fall for this scam. Too often we speak about this type of thing, & people are still believing that somehow there situation might be different, & they won't be scammed/ripped off--but then it happens.
