Imposter – Amtek of Louisiana

I

I placed an ad of Craigslist for an item at $500. I received a response from a buyer stating that they would send me a check and include money for shipping. I received the check for $1900, $1400 more than the cost and was supposed to deposit it and forward $1400 back through Walmart. The name on the check was Amteck of Louisiana, Inc. from Anthem Bank & Trust in Baton Rouge, LA (IMPOSTER). I went to the bank and they called to verify funds with the bank and found out that the company name had been hijacked and scammers were using the accounts sending fake checks. The account number on the check had been closed.
