Scam Description

17 year old daughter was selling a dress on Poshmark when she was approached by an individual who offered to purchase a dress at a significantly higher cost but in return stated they would send her a check for 1000 more that she would have to cash and send back the difference. When I identified what was going on unfortunately, she had deposited the money into her bank account, which, of course resulted in the check bouncing and her being defrauded by this individual.
