View Full Version : This feels fishy...

Nov. 26, 2009, 08:43 AM
My father owns an energy company that sells solar. He got an email a few days ago from a guy named "Ben" who wanted to order a panel and inverter, and asked for a price quote. My dad quoted him 12k, and the guy told him he would pay by credit card.

My dad hasn't finished the sale because he senses something fishy- the guy was "obviously oriental", only gave him a first name, etc. We both think something is off about the whole deal, but I don't know enough about the world to know how someone can pull a scam via paying with credit card.

Any advice/experience would be appreciated!
