Scam the DJ, Scam the DJ, Scam the DJ…

Howdy!
New caller, longtime listener here. I think this is the right place to post. I am a DJ and I recently received this message below in the mailbox at my station. It sounded a tad suspicious, but who knows. I texted the dude.

Hello,
I will like to book you for my daughters sweet sixteen i will like to know your availability,text me for faster communication on [REDACTED]. I am an hearing impaired person, i will appreciate your understanding.
Stay Safe

He wrote back with more details about this party, asked my rates, etc., and in the third or fourth note he said he needed to pay by “electronic check,” which he assured me was very easy and convenient.

That’s when I figured he had to be a scammer. Has anyone heard of this type before, where a scammer tries to obtain services? What would his endgame be? To get my bank account info?

Thank you,
Becky

The plan here is to wire transfer an amount greater than your fee, asking you to forward the difference to his caterer/decorator/assistant/whatever. After you forward the money, he cancels the wire transfer, and you're left holding the (empty) bag!

Since you've been texting with him, he obviously has some of your personal info, which we strongly recommend against. Just tell him you're all booked up and then block his number. Do not communicate with him anymore.

Exactly what crashhoot said. More details are here:

Again, we do not suggest you continue to engage with this scammer. They have information on you that might damage you personally or professionally. You're dealing with a criminal here.

Best of luck!

Thank you and got it. I would never send money or give out my bank info. I was hoping to engage in some scam baiting tho.
