If you’re selling or planning on selling a boat or vehicle, be on the lookout for a guy out of Austin that calls himself JB. Claims his grandfathers fronting him the cash for the purchase and has a bank check. The check is from a credit union in the Austin area. Luckily my bank called to verify funds and caught that it was fraudulent. Everything looked legit, just a heads up.

I’m guessing you didn’t meet him in person?

I certainly hoped you called the police.

Called the cops and the FTC. Crazy part is my bank said had they not called to verify, the funds would “appear” in my account until they realized those funds never actually existed which can take 3-5 days, that’s why they hold the title for 3-5. Meanwhile he would’ve already flipped my boat somewhere for pennies on the dollar.

Yea, experienced that before with certified check. It was even "written" from the same bank and they still took several days to find out it was fraudulent. I despise thiefs

it is not the banks job to call an verify funds its your job . you can accept a cashier check but have them send a copy of it so it can be checked out on the bank it was drawn on . if the check cant be verified or they wont wire funds tell them to find another boat.

If they can get a bank check, or cashier's check....they can get cash.
Simple solution.

I wouldn’t realistically expect anyone to carry around 29k in cash. Even before i realized he was a crook, that’s just not practical. I don’t remember the name of the credit union but it was in Cedar Park. I had him send a copy of the check to my bank and had them verify for me, they didn’t have an issue doing so and they caught that it was fraudulent.

Did you ever meet him in person? I recently had a guy here in Austin sign a bill of sale to buy my boat... when it came time to do the deal things were super weird and when I insisted on a wire transfer or to hold the boat until the funds cleared he bailed.

No, I never met him. Ran his number through a background check and it came back as Justin Butler.

A guy scammed my brother in law out of his 65ish camaro. My brother in law usually is on high alert when it comes to stuff like this but let his guard down. Anyhow the car was found in Houston and still in prefect condition. Luckily the con artist sold it to an honest man.
