Victim Describes Email Scam [scammer: "Dr. Peter Ban"]

After accepting a check from BTA Oil Producers, via USPS Express for $6,455.39, my bank checked into it and found that the check was a fraud. There was no rst National Bank of Abiler at phone number 915-627-7000 in Abilene, TX. The bank manager said if they'd had cashed the check and I'd had deposited my 10% fee I would have been responsible for the whole check amount after thet couldn't get their money back from an account that doesn't exist. I checked the routing number and account number at bottom of the check. Account does not exist. Ficticious bank and phone number.
