ROSWELL, Ga. — A couple recently reported that they lost $900 after they were convinced to send a moneygram as part of a Craigslist transaction.

The couple had listed some furniture for sale on the website, and a few days later a man called them to purchase the items. The man sent them a $1,300 check that covered both the furniture and price for moving the furniture to Maryland.

After the check was processed and cleared, the man told the couple to send $900 from the check to someone in Colorado to pay the movers.

The couple did so, and a few days later, their bank informed them that the $1,300 was taken out of their account because the check was bad. They were told to file a police report.
