I got an e-mail asking if my husband and I still have are car that we are trying to sale through craigslist.com and bestcarfinder.com. This Tim Walker sent a message on the best car finder website on 6/27/2016, I didn't see until 7/4/2016 in the afternoon. I sent him a e-mail letting know that it is for sale so I sent more pictures and info. on the car. I still have all e-mail and texts from my cell phone. He did try calling me which I really couldn't understand him from his thick accent maybe from China or Japan I guess. He told me that he sent the money through Pay pal and to follow the instructions so because it was a holiday I told him I would have to wait until the next day and he said ok. I check Pay pal it's not there so I text or e-mailed him letting him know that. He told he sent to money and everything in the e-mails even from Pay pal was showing that I need to go to a Money Gram place and I have to pay $100.00 of my money and give them my address for shipping the car to Emmanuel Martin in Indianpolis, IN 46220. So I called Pay pal and they said it was not from them and they gave me your website to report him and I even double checked with the Money Gram location in Kingman, AZ where I live and they said the same thing. The biggest problem is this happen before on this car I'm trying to sell. The first time was from cregslist.com texting me it's still available or my husband cell phone and they mailed us a check and that was fraud through Wells Fargo, who we bank with. The bank called and verified and kept the check but did give a copy I still have plus the big envelope it came in. Not sure the date off hand but I can pull it out of my paperwork. the second one was a text in 6/18/2016 and they told me that it would go to my Pay pal account and that didn't happen. So when I was telling them it's not in my Pay pal account I'm not shipping the car out until I get paid and they left me alone. Now this is the third time that this had happened on this car. My husband and I really feel it's the same person because all three are male guy lives in California and I believe wanting to ship to Indiana. So anything I have I'm more than happy to provide that for you.
P.S. the first two were posted on cregslist and the third one was bestcarfinder.com so call, text or e-mail me and let me know what you need.

Internet Crime “Beware” Individual #1 (using alias Robert Franklin) phone number (805) 874 -7403, a land- line with Pacific Bell in Oxnard CA. He initiates the purchase transaction of advertised item on Craiglist. Individual #2 phone number (805)633-8646 land-line level III communications in Ojai CA. This is the first phone number used by interested buyer (above), then uses second number (above) to continue communicating. Individual #3 Mark Johnson email address [email protected] Mark sends via email a USPS Priority mailing label for seller to place on envelope for sending moneygrams payable to Heather Swanson at an address, 485 W. Gainsborough Rd. Apt. 102, Thousand Oaks, CA 91360, a property being marketed “For Sale By Owner”. However, she resides at West Lake Village, CA.
Individual #4 Heather Swanson (805) 279-5078 in Westlake Village, CA, employed as an instructional assistant special education at Oak Park Unified School District phone # (818) 735-3200. Individual #1 offers to buy item that you listed on craigslist. He texts and sends you a check (using a business, Meridian Title Company located in Salt Lake City, UT) for an amount much higher than the asking price of the item, citing that the excess amount is for a trucking company to transport the item to the buyer. Meridian Title Company’s checking account is in Zions Bank in Salt Lake City Utah, who confirms by phone there are funds to honor the check you received. Individual #4, Heather Swanson, picks up the priority envelope containing the money orders at the address designated by the buyer. She cashes the moneygrams. Five days later your bank tells you that the business check from Meridian Title Company is a fraud and returned it unpaid to you. You’re out the money you sent to Heather Swanson.
Please help stop these individuals from committing internet crimes by notifying law enforcement at all levels.
Scammed roams Craigslist. Posting a job to paint his entire house. Won't talk over phone. Finally wants your credit card info and address to send you a check. I sent an invoice for payment. Response was he had to mail a check that would include even more money than agreed upon. Then I could reimburse him the difference.
We didn't send a dime. John Dore same as Jane doe I responded. Customer beware.
