TDA warning against hay sales scammers


Posted by: tdt -

SPECIAL TO
THE DALHART TEXAN

The Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) would like to warn Texans about a scam being run against individuals who have hay for sale.

TDA has received alerts from Johnson and Karnes counties about scammers contacting hay sellers. The
supposed hay buyer will send the seller a check in excess of the amount the hay is being sold for and then ask the seller to wire the extra money somewhere else. The scammers explain the overpayment by saying they need to cover taxes or shipping costs; however, then the check bounces and the scammer already has the money wired to them. The hay seller is then left to pay the money back to the bank.
