  • Craigslist scam trying to receive wired payments for a house that is not actually for rent

    $0.00Unresolved

    They posted a false post for a house for rent on Craigslist, with the email username of [email protected] and have collected personal information through this email address. The 'copy & pasted' email response that they used to reply is nearly identical to the one that was posted online to warn shoppers of house rental scams.

  • Scam! Vehicle Report Scam

    $0.00Unresolved

    I put an ad on Craigslist to sell a car. Someone said they were interested but needed a car report. They provided me a website that looked legit (http://goo.gl/N0bIRi) and an email address (mailto:[email protected]). I decided $13 was too much to spend on a vehicle car Report so I found a website to do it for about $5 and did that. I sent the report in a PDF to the email.... Didn't hear back. Then I pieced it together.... The text messages sent to me could've been sent to anyone with very little altercation. I couldn't find the website on Google. Who has an email like that. The Phone number was +1 (323) 531-5614 from LA, California I live in Washington. I even sent to confronting text saying that he should stop this scam, nothing back. Luckily I was able to avoid the scam hope others see the signs.

so this dude is such a good liar. he told me he was going to help me get sober and that he was a rich dude from beverly hills and he didnt want to see me in the place where i was. he sold me on this idea that we could just party all day and smoke weed. my dumb ass bought it. he is actually a drug addict who lives with his parents and tried to bring me back to san marcus and fuck me in a motel six and got upset and accused me of being a heroin addict when i tried to leave. he took me back the next day when i threatened to calll the cops and then stole my purse from the house i stay at when no one was looking, containing all my money, a $400 wallet, my social security card, my id, insurance card, etc. he then hid outside for a few hours and then stormed in screaming at both of us, saying that i stole his phone and $250 from him and he wasnt leaving till he got it, he threatened psysical violence and he took my phone from me and tried to walk out with it until my roomate stopped him. he charged at both of us. my roomate was trying to let him calm down to avoid any further issues, like it wasnt already one. then after he left i saw him run off down the street, because he had hidden his car. when he was on the porch he broke one of my heels off of my shoes. later that week he came back and acted like nothing had happened, he called me on like 5 different phone numbers saying that he was sorry for the miscommunication and he didnt have my purse. i told him to shove it up his ass. i knew this guy for 3 miserable days and i know for a fact he is mentally unstable and he probably has fucked over a lot of people just like us. my situation is unresolved but i just wanted to post this incase anyone ever happens upon jay or jade.

"BEWARE!!!!!!!Same here! See Letter sent to us below: [email protected] Subject : Re: NEW 2016 HAUL MARK 7x16 CARGO TRAILER Hello, Thank you for your interest in purchasing my trailer. The trailer is a 2016 Haulmark Enclosed V-nose 7x16 trailer/atv/trailer. Is in perfect condition, no accidents/liens/loans, immaculate condition, meticulously maintained, electric brakes, no hidden problems, and much more. I have all the item`s manuals, title, documents. I am a Staff Maj. stationed at Beale Air Force Base.The price was reduced at $1,100 because I'm in a hurry to find a buyer. I need to sell it because I work in the military service and I will leave the country for a year or more. Hate to sell it but its not worth keeping insurance and paying storage fees for a year or more. One advantage is that, as a POV (privately owned vehicle) of a military employee, the trailer can be shipped to anywhere in US for free It will arrive at your address in 3 business days. To make this as safe as possible, I only want to do this through Amazon, the most reputable service online. If you're interested to conclude this purchase in a timely manner email me your Full Name and Shipping Address to open a case with Amazon. They will contact you to explain the entire procedure without any obligation to buy it or fees. Maj.Donna"

I was just emailed by the same Cindy Malkins as one of these listed scams. She sent me emails from [email protected] and [email protected] and then mailed me a check for 2750 on a dresser I was selling for $150. Her email to me was word for word, but I didn't catch it until too late because her 2nd email address went into spam so there was limited communication.

Never send money money gram or western union. You must insist on using direct bank transfer,no other method. Insist that he emails you the bank details. If he refuses,then it is a scam. Save the emails if you send the money any method.

There are a few people using the website Wallapop who are doing this type of scam. They say they cannot pick up the item, that they are sending movers, that they will send a check for an excessive amount of money, they ask that you deposit it, keep some of the money and give the "movers" the rest. The checks are fake, of course. Once I saw the check I looked up the name of this person (they are using :Eddie Dutcher, Daniel Raymond -on the envelope-, Alejandro Cautus, LAura W., Nicole F.) I looked it up and found multiple claims of people who have been ripped off. I was lucky. Be aware!! These are organized criminals.

The person from +1 (224) 855-6407 also tried to scam me out of money for my car that I posted on cars.com. Luckily I googled his number and found the site. He said he would pay the asking price without even looking at the car then wanted my PayPal sign-on for money transfers and shipping costs.

I have got a text at 3:00 AM from a person named Oscar ( Phone # (224) 855-6407 ) regarding my car for sale on Cars.com . Asking on my PayPal details. Did not negotiate and offered the full price. He don't even ask on additional pictures. I have only 5 very basics pics on Cars.com . Seems like a scam . I found his phone and details here . I asked him on his billing details including a copy of his DL for a bill of sale along with details on his shipping company which I was going to contact. He disappeared. Thanks !
