Williams allegedly asked the victim to send $1,000 by Western Union, and once he received the money, he sent her a check from EA Engineering Science and Technology Inc., with a check number of 72029, made out for $2,980.65 in the victim's name. The woman did not have a bank account, so she tried several places. At the final store, an employee could not cash the check, so the employee called the alleged company and spoke with a representative who told her the check was fraudulent. Manning Police Chief Blair Shaffer has frequently said that "if it sounds too good to be true, it is." "Don't ever send anyone money for a promise of money," he said. "No one is going to send you double what you sent them. That's not how the world works."
