long time ago I was selling a 4 year old non reg paint gelding, he was a rescue pony so I bought him, got weight put on to him, got him trained, and put him for sale..
And a Paul Garza was really interested in him, same thing terrible English, certain things didn't seem normal "your horse is really my taste" like do you plan on eating him?..
he was talking about sending a hauler to get him in which he'd pay me extra so when he showed up I could give the hauler the extra money he sent me blah blah blah...
I finally started doing some research and sure enough his name came up with a lot of people advertising that he's a scammer.. so I was a little confused as to how buying something from me would be a scam, me buying something from him was easily understood, but some how when he'd send this cheque it gave him some access to your account when trying to deposit it.. so prior to me finding out the info I had told him my mailing address for him to send the cheque (young and stupid) and when I received it I killed myself laughing.. It was a printed out fake cheque that looked like It was done on photoshop, never heard of the bank before and I was dealing with this Paul guy yet the signature was "Lily Lemon" like seriously? lol..
I finally emailed him back, after reading all the stuff on the internet and getting this fake cheque and told him I knew he was a scammer and that he was wasting my time, I'm pretty sure I told him some other stuff lol.. and got a email back from him telling me, that he sent me this cheque and if I didn't deposit it he was going to get the cops involved, so I told him to go ahead cause we both knew it was a scam and he'd be doing me a favor by getting them involved and he sent me a couple other threats finally I told him I had enough and was going to send his info along with the emails to my law enforcement and then I never heard another word out of him.
I probably wouldn't have ever gone as far as I did communicating with him, but my family was convinced it was legit, right from his first email I knew he wasn't a typical horse lover.. so I learned two things, don't listen to those around you and listen to your gut.. I was right from the get go with that guy, yet I listen to those around me and almost got myself into trouble!
