Craigslist dating site scams
From the beginning you have to know that for the payment I request only secure pay, I prefer the payment to be done using e Bay services.We will use a safe payment method because I am affiliated at e Bay and I have a purchase protection account for ,000.00 The final price that I want for this truck is ,740.00 including shipping and handling. Also, it’s my experience that when people have stories about why they’re getting rid of something in such good condition at a dirt-cheap price, they’re usually full of shit.I’m very busy with my job and I’m getting off the town so I can’t meet in person with you so this is the reason why I chose to sell my car over the internet.According with the e Bay you have 5 days from the time you receive the car to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not.*NOTE It may occur that your e-mail doesn’t support HTML language and that is why you haven’t received the invoice from us.Please check your bulk/junk/spam/ messages, the invoice may have ended there because of the ever increasing filters of the e-mails nowdays.In exchange for assistance, the scammer promised to share money with the victim in exchange for a small amount of money to bribe prison guards.
This truck is in excellent working conditions, no scratches, flaws or any kind of damage, slightly used in 100% working and looking conditions and comes with a clear title.
For the invoice and final e-mail, the messages were forwarded to [email protected]
e Bay confirmed that both e-mails were in fact fraudulent. If you receive any official correspondence, be sure to check the “from” and “reply-to” headers in your email.
There are many variations on this type of scam, including the 419 scam, the Spanish Prisoner scam, the black money scam and the Detroit-Buffalo scam.
The scam has been used with fax and traditional mail, and is now prevalent in online communications like emails.
