Craig's List Fraud


Have you ever been a victim of fraud on Craig's List? I know there are some "smart" crooks out there, but sometimes if you just take the time to look a little closer you'll find out that the person you're dealing with is out to get you.

Recently I posted my Martin guitar up for sale on Craig's List and was delighted to receive an email a couple of days later from a "Mary Williams." Here is what she said,

Hello, I'm Mary Williams I saw your posted ads for sale at the CRAIGSLIST SITE and am highly intrested in it,So i will really appreciate if you can get back to me with the present condition,more pics if available and your firm asking price on it.Moreso i will like to talk to you on phone if you dont mind. Thanks Bill

Ok so the first thing I notice is she never mentions anything about the guitar. Second I already posted the condition of the guitar on Craig's List and the price. Third if you haven't already noticed, her name starts with "Mary Williams" and ends with "Bill."

So now I just want to see what they'll say so I reply to the message and explain my conditions. No shipping, cash only, and I list my cell number. Their reply:

Hello,
Thanks for the mail,and am so sorry for the late response.I'm okay with the price and the condition.Once again i resides at 8411 Lexington Place#10 Pleasant Prairie,Wisconsin ,53158 ,But i will be leaving my home town state tomorrow to another home town state in Sacramento California for a speculative purpose with my company board of directors,but never the less As per the payment i will have to instruct my wife to send out a certified check to you,via ups or fed ex courier service which will take only 2-3 days to get to you. course this is the only means of payment I can offer you now due to my present departing schedule. besides you don't need to worry about the shipping,I've my reputable shipping company that will be coming over to your house for the pickup as soon as the deal is up So to make payment out to you, you'll have to email me your details as follows: Name To Be Written On The check, Full Home Address(Including zip code) Cell Phone & Home Phone #, I look forward to your prompt response so that we can proceed. Best wishes

Again they mention nothing about the guitar itself and this time it's the "husband" not "Mary Williams." What's scary about this situation is they're going to send a "reputable shipping company" over to my house to pick it up! Talk about freaky, go watch the movie "Strangers." So next time you buy or sell online, be careful to read carefully. Like I said there are some "smart" crooks out there, but this one wasn't one of them. Please share your experience and any tips you might have.

Come on people. Firs tip off is their grammar. Second tip off is this has been around for 3 years or more.

I cannot believe anyone would fall for these idiot type responses off craigs list or ebay.com.

Never give out your address over email. Once I did that after figuring it was a scam but they went through with it already so a check for $3500 arrived from a real company. Googled the company, address matched the check. Funny thing was that it was sent ups express from the other side of the country. Fake check - real company.

I always deal local only. Never deal with anyone who will not verify their id or call on the phone.

good on you for putting the word out man. This scam IS so tired! You'd think they'd try something different.

Also, if you haven't checked out the link above to the zugs.com Powerbook prank- check it out.

I saw it on a board the other day and it's amazing.

I just wanted everyone to beware! Me and some other ladies are married to men who serving in Afghan and are on their way home. They wanted to fly out there and see them hit the US but since such short notice and tickets are so expensive they purchased buddy tickets. Needless to say it was a scam, they are stuck and out of more money than the orig. tickets would be. These scammers are heartless! BEWARE

I've had a similar experience selling an ethnic instrument. The email address had a name of a somewhat famous musician (or at least accomplished) in it too, which was obviously a false Yahoo account.

They also asked about things already mentioned in the listing. They claimed to be from New York and then asked if it was ok if they could send cash. When the cash thing came up I knew it was a scam, until then I was guessing it was just someone with bad English skills.

This guy is still at it. I just got a hit from him this morning.

I am selling a TV on CraigsList and received this responce.

I responded right away with:

Hello Graham,

I am sure that you can appriciate my position in this matter. I therefore can continue this deal only with your phone number and cash only at the conclusion of the deal.

If your reputable shipping company can hand me the money in cash then we have a deal, otherwise I am sorry to say, we cannot do business.
Please understand my position. There are too many 'scammers' out there to trust everyone.
I hope to be able to do business with you but I will do it in a manner that is safe for both of us.

Please respond with your telephone number and I will call you to discuss this further.

Thank you,
Todd

Then I decided to look up the address on Google and came up with this web page.
What an ass-hole.

"Buyer Beware" & Seller Beware!!!

There's a guy in Toledo selling a 61 SG for $1000. I emailed him and he's in London, this is our emails;
Me:
I'm vey interested, I'd love to come hear it, play it, possibly this weekend. Sunday morning would be best for me.

HIM:
I am sorry, but won't be possible, since I am currently working in London, so I can only deliver it at this time. I could offer a 5 day trial, that's the most I can do. Thanks for understanding

ME:
Sorry thought there might be a London Ohio, wasn't thinking England. I don't know how we could possibly do that. Is the guitar with you now?

HIM:
The guitar is in US at a shipper, they act as an escrow company. You pay for it, you get it, able to test and inspect it for 5 days, if satisfied with it, they release the funds to me, if not they refund your money. Let me know if you do want it. Thanks

ME:
I really want it, do you have the serial numbers?

HIM:
Sure I have them, but not here, so I am not able to provide them, they certificates will be also included in the package

Looks suspicious to me

Malcolm said...

I am posting this comment cause I have some concern. I am selling a ring on craigslist right now, and received the exact email you received. I was so eager to sell my ring that I have given this person my adress and phone number. I will not be completing the transaction now, but do you feel that I have anything to worry about? Please respond to mirra18@hotmail.com

This happened to me this week. I just replied that I will not ship anywhere but i thought it was really weird.

Check the IP address of the person wanting to send you a check. Most times they are in Africa using stolen UPS/FedEX accounts.

To avoid bad buyers or sellers, check out http://www.CraigslistFeedback.Net

Its new, but growing fast. You can see if they have scammed anyone else before, of it their a good seller.

I responded to an ad for a Bose stereo system, the guy just moved to Georgia from Michigan he wants me to pay ups and they pay him after I test the speakers and release the funds. He says he has done this alot and is guarnteed Yeh right. Why would he put it on craigs list in Michigan if he is in Georgia and the equipment is in Georgia.
IF the price is too low then it must be a scam. 3000.00 new system for 700.00 yeh right.

Kevin said...

Also, a little reminder for those buyers looking for cell phones. I thought I was being smart, having the seller come to a Verizon store with me to verify the ESN was not reported as stolen. It was clear, so I paid the man cash. The battery was dead, but the phone was new in the box. Got it home, charged it up and it was already activated, with a 443 area code. Has a $200 balance on the account. I can't activate it until the previous owner clears it up.

The lesson here is: always plug the phone in and check its activation status before paying. Wish me luck!

Dont let them pay with Paypal either. They will just send in false information saying they did not get this item and Paypal will give them the money back. A lot of them are trying to get me like that with my laptops. ONLY take CASH or MONEY ORDER!!

Anonymous said...

i always buy and sell locally only or pick up only. bring cash if u want it lol

Anonymous said...

This is a good one also. You kind of hope its real but since I asked him to call me and he never did it just verifies what I thought. Scam.

Hello
Thanks for the swift response,just to let you know that am okay
with the condition and price of the item, am ready for its purchase
and my form of payment will be by sending you company's Check via UPS next day
delivery.
I'll be responsible for the pick-up and the pick up money will be
included in your payment to avoid delay and to enable pick up company
to schedule an appropriate time for the pick-up at your location after
check has been cashed,as i have other properties to be moved alongside
with yours.
I would have really love to come for the viewing but due to my work
frame that might not be possible,but if you have the pics,might want
to have a good look. Please do get back to me with your full name and
address including your cell and land phone number so i can make out payment.
Regards.

This just happened to me in Burlington VT. I didn't fall for it but turned everything over to the security department of my local bank. They turn sent it along to the FBI. The funny thing was that I had sold my merchandise locally and told them not to send the check. Then I started getting threatening e-mails of where's my money I'll call the cops on you ...very funny.

Anonymous said...

I'm so glad I just did a search for this guy's name and address, etc. This Blogger popped up and BINGO - a scam. We're selling some building materials and after a month of no interest, "Mr. Benard's" email was in our in box.

The were a few red flags in his response (the EXACT one posted here)including use of language (unusual phrasing and words "speculative purpose")and urgency in having to have his "reputable" shipping company zip right over to the east coast from the west. Mostly, I just had a gut feeling on this not being legit.

This is our first time posting something on Craigslist. I realize that it's probably best for someone local to come to my home with cash, a certified bank check or credit card (we have a machine and can run it immediately) with a valid license to match... and then take the items. No shipping this stuff (hundreds of pounds) or exchanging personal info online.

I'm a bit gun shy now but I know there are others who are good, legitimate buyers. We just have to be cautious no matter what.

I am not 100% sure, but pretty positive this email was fraud too:

Hi Seller,
i would like to purchase this your item that you listed,i have much interest in it and i want it to be sent to a friend abroad as gift item who is currently in his final year in school in ancient university of Ibadan,in west Africa, am currently offering you $240.00 USD for this item(plus shipping via (EMS) GLOBAL EXPRESS mail USPS.Please if this is acceptable to you,kindly send your full name and PayPal email address so that i can proceed with the payment via PayPal.you can also add me to your messenger,Google talk list and mail me to.......... jewoola2003@gmail.com,.
NOTE : go to www.PayPal.com and set up a paypal account and after that get back to me with the email address used in setting it so that i can immediately transfer the money into it. Thank you once again.
Regards.
I replied back with, "I would gladly share this fraudulent email with Craigslist." This is the second time I got this type of email, and I only posted three times.

Not going to reply at all. Don't even want them to have my email address. Bad news...

Here is the first one I got.

Do let me know if you still have the posted item.

Smith.

I replied that I still had the game.

Then this one.

That's great, thank you for getting back to me. Though I'll be using the services of a mover who will come for the pick up of the item on my behalf all because I'm currently away for a contracting Job but I will send a Check through my Bank to cover the cost of the items. The check will be delivered to you by a reliable courier company within 2-3 working days. Please do provide me with your full mailing address, and also indicate your final price, the Name that should be on check and finally a cell phone #. Kindly delete the posting because am serious in buying it, when the funds clears then we can arrange for the pick up asap.

Regards,
Chris.

Never mentions the game by name. Traced the IP address. It is coming from CA. I am in Ohio.

Also received this, never clicked it to open, but others beware. Got 3 within 5 minutes of each other with exact response but different names that didnt match their email names.
Hello,

I came across your AD on craigslist and I'm very interested in purchasing your item. Firstly I want to make sure its the similar type that my son is after. I know it's a bit odd for a mom to be looking in the auto part section but It's his birthday coming up and I want to make it a BIG surprise for him. I'm a single mom and obviously know nothing about car parts (lol). So I'm hoping you can help me out. Heres a video I copied from my son's PC. Can you please take a look and confirm its the same type. VID1 (if not work try VID2). I'm willing to pay more than what youre asking for as long it matches the video description and you can reserve it for me.

Cheers!
Julie.

Got the same thing form Bill Rhykkard!!!

I stupidly sent my addy and numbers!!! So I got this responce back,

Thanks once again for the prompt response,the payment has been sent out already,and it will get to you nextweek unfailingly Via Usps courier service coz it takes 3-4 working days for there delivery,but there is a new development concerning my shippers that will be coming over to your location for the pick up,we spoke on the phone,and they advised that i send their shipping charges together with the payment coming to you,so i already informed my wife to send the check to you,which includes some excess funds,because if i send them a separate check,it will take about 15 working days for a United States check to clear in their head office,so my wife sent a check of $13,850 to your address and it was written out in your names,when you receive it and cashed it,you're to deduct your own amount from it which is $5,600 then deduct another $100 compensation fee for the stress you may go through,and then get all the remaining funds sent via western union or money gram to my shipping company,please note that the transfer charges should be deducted from the excess funds you're sending to the shippers,not with your own personal money ok.
You may also be wondering why the shippers funds is so high like that,but i want you to know that they would also be shipping some other goods for me from North carolina to my
house in the WASHINGTON,so I'm paying them together with your payment.I'm really sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you,so try and bear with me,and i assure you that you will never regret doing a transaction with me,so ensure you email me back immediately you receive this email if everything sounds ok by you,so that i can go ahead with the plans,and also to email you further instruction on how to complete the transaction by sending the rest excess funds to the moving company.Thanks so much for your understanding and co-operation.
I AWAIT YOUR URGENT RESPONSE RIGHT AWAY ...
