    Danger in giving out name, address, phone?


    I've got someone asking to buy a part I'm selling for just over $100. It's a UK person, asking to pay by money order. Seems a lot like the scams, but for such a small amount? No mention yet of over-paying. They want my info to send the money order: name, address, phone.

    I wonder if there's any danger in sending that info and possibly receiving a phony money order? I'm hesitant to give out any info to anyone suspicious, even if it's just my address.

    Anyone know of scams intended just to collect name/address/phone?

    I decided not to go through because of security

    It seems to me that depending on how the paper trail with any check goes, the sender may be able to pull your Bank Account info off the deposited check. Now they have an amount of your personal info plus, possibly your bank account. Since banks' routing numbers are pretty easy to get to, that is really all you need to get money out of an account!

    Somebody smack me down if I'm being a dumby, but sometimes it's just easier to give what you have to the local police so that they can forward it to the FBI and the FBI can be sure put it at the very bottom of their to-do list.
