I recently posted an ad on Craigslist for a Honda Civic. What made this scam attempt a bit unique was that they mentioned the brand of the car I am attempting to sell.
Offering MORE than the asking price. Again, the thing I thought to be creative on this one was that they actually did mention the brand of the product when they ed back. However, individuals outside of the country will frequently contact sellers or post their own fraudulent. Do not be misled! These are not honest people with exceptional deals, but criminals trying to take your money.
Watch for the following s: 1. Buyer explains that they are currently out of the county. Buyer offers to pay with a money order or cashiers check for ificantly more than the asked for price. Buyer explains that a third party or service will pick up or deliver the item. I just received another this morning, another perfect example of an attempted Craigslist Scam.
I have been targeted in a scam similar to the one described above. I have actaully receieved a check from a so called Escrow Company for a ridiculous amount of money. I am thinking I should turn it over to the local authorities along with the contact I have had with the person.
Does anyone know what I should do here? Thanks in advance. I think it sounds legit; what do you guys think? I had someone offer me a cashier check for moped on Craigslist the money has came through and everything looks legit but they do not want to tell me anything about the shipping company still.

These bastards have no moral concept. I put an ad on Craigslist, and am receiving replies asking for a verification process to prove I am not a scammer. I am not familiar with how this works. Please educate me.
I want to comply with their wishes. Thank you. Thank you so much for this information. Thanks again for confirming my suspicions! I looked on craiglist 2different times for a Yorkie. I contacted them through .
This person said, he has 2 Yorkies for sale at each. Also he said I had to answer a few questions, just to make sure the dogs were going to a good home. Then his story, The dogs were his brothers ,and his brother passed away. Also that him and his family were moving to main he gave an address. He said he was a police officer for 20 years.
He wanted to ship the dogs on an airplane. It was a sad story at first. So I called a rental management let the guy know the story.
I gave him the address to the place where officer Dave and his family were to over to, he looked up the address and he said he just rented that place out, and the people all ready moved in. There was no name that matched officer Dave. This happen 6 or 7 months apart.
It was the same mo. Sad but true.
What about employment scams? Iam unsur e about a company that recently contacted me via text message for an interview, on telegram app, and then requested information on id. Thank you!
Just got an from emilysbpoole34 gmail. Please send your adress and I will send you more pics. Thank you for this. It confirmed what I was sure was a scam via Craigslist. I am selling an Armoire and several other pieces of furnature and this guy ed me. He offered to pay More than the asking price if we hold it for him.
He is willing to buy it site unseen??????
At least his grammar was good so English must be his first language, usually these scams do have really bad grammer! People have tried to scam us before His first addr was kenny.
The next big scam which unfortunately I was a victim of was sending money via paypals friends and family. Paypal offers absolutely no buyers protection. I feel like an absolute idiot. Finally, not necessary for certain, but when the name on the craigslist vs the address they ask me to use have completely different names.
I still have the fedx package that the check was sent in and including the uncashed check… I also called the company name on the check and talk with the owner and she said OMG another one… so long story short. No one that I talk too would pursue it. They should have a task force for this reasonbillions of dollars is stolen and these SOB are laughing at us…. I am curious why a prospective buyer continues to communicate through craigslist even after I have supplied them with a phone to text or call for directions to buy an item.
Occasionally I get an offer to receive money to ship the item.
I always refuse. I recently started adding that i do in person transactions only but still two people wanted the item sent. The second person I reported the as a scam.
What happens when I report this type of as a scam? What are they trying to accomplish? It clears on your end they take the item you are selling, then the bank from the other end does not approve the check. You are stuck with not only losing your item but also extra bank fees! They give you a fake check and then take the car and when you go to the bank to cash it most of the time its not caught until after its been cashed and the bank holds you responsible and you have to pay the money back and jailtime happens a lot too.
I do not want to buy any thing they had people on there that you can chat with not to date just to get together married women looking men looking for men women looking to give blow job hope you can help they are local to me thank u that why I like craiglist so that means you can not help.
I was selling a pesticide tank and pump system. The buyer was going to send a mover over. Not a couch or even a car.
