Dr. Harrison Smith contacted me after I listed an ad in craigslist.com for my daycare. He told me through email that he was from Ontario, Canada and was coming into my area for 4 weeks and needed care for his 2 twin 2 year olds.
I gave him prices and he told me money was no problem. I told him that the kids would need some items when they came here. He fed ex a check for $4300.00 to me. I was only expecting $3000.00. I then recieved an email telling me he was having the children's items shipped from some store an a woman Trudy Young was waiting to recieve a western union from me for the extra $1300.00 he had send me. It cost me $100.00 to send it to Saginaw, Texas.
Then I recieved another email stating that it wasn't enough to ship the items please send out of the money I gave u another $2000.00. That cost me another $120.00. I refused to do anything more for him.
I then recieved a check fro him that was suppose to replace the money I laid out already. Only the check was for $6000.00. He proceeded to give me instructons to do another western union to Lee Preble in Terryville, CT . Everything from him was through the email. I went into the bank and found out that my accounts were frozen and all because of the first check for $4300.00 was a counterfiet.
All these checks were from the Greater Seattle Soccer League in Seattle, Washington. Drawn on an offical bank check from Key Bank in Seattle Washington. I now owe my bank over $3000.00 for the money withdrawn on my account.
I have filed a police report and recieved a case # and filed reports with the FBI, the canadian fraud department, my banks fraud department and any one else I can think of. I have called the branch of key bank in Seattle Washington and also the Greater Seattle Soccer League to let them know about everything.
