Overpayment schemes -- A con artist contacts someone with an item for sale on the Internet and arranges to buy it.Then the targeted consumer is told to cash it and wire part of it to pay taxes on prize winnings. The thief then sends a counterfeit cashier's check for an amount larger than the sale, claiming either the excess was a mistake or must be used to pay taxes or shipping fees to an "agent." The victim wires the money to the agent.However, the check is found to be counterfeit, making the person who cashed it responsible to the bank for the loss. Of course, the cashier's check bounces; the victim owes the bank for the wired cash, and thieves have that money.The victim loses the amount sent for taxes or fees. Internet fraud reached an all-time high in 2006, draining victims of 8.4 million, the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center figures.
