I have a classic car for sale on Craigslist on the west coast and I received a text message from the above number at 2:36am asking if the car was still for sale. I ignored it till the morning and looked up the 941 area code being Florida. I responded with yes it is still for sale. I received this response- " Good day my name is Wale dickson, An air force staition in Florida. I would love to see this item but am presently busy here at the base. I am okay with your advert price and I will be sending your money asap via Paypal. Do you have a paypal account cos I can send money through. Kindly get back to me with your paypal info and also have the posting deleted from craigslist asap..." OBVIOUSLY a classic scam artist who needs busting- Thanks.

I posted my Juliana pig for sale in Craigslist list. A day later I received a text message. And I asked do you want the pig, he said yes I'll send you a check you'll get it next week. So I waited. till I got the check i saw it was over the amount I was asking for my pig. So I asked them why did he send so much money and he replied because I'm sending one of my agents to pick it up for me. So I said okay and what. he gave me all the steps I followed them not knowing what was going to happen. I deposited the check in my account and I sent the extra money through money gram to Joseph Nicholas. The next morning I had to cancel the money gram because it was talking to long. I also received a call from a guy thinking it was mr.smith telling me to send the money to Ann Johnson. So I did then I started receiving message from both numbers and I really got confused. Till the next day I realized what I did wrong. Now I'm just scared the check will bounce from my account. Im talking about $2,150. i dont have the money to Pay the bank!

Mattress warehouse selling used mattresses that stink

  • Monetary Loss: $180
I saw an ad on craiglist for "new" mattresses for sale and I called and found out the location. I was told they were new mattresses and they only accepted cash. I bought a mattress and had it delivered, I paid $180 cash when it was delivered and was never given any kid of receipt or told there are no returns/refunds. I left the mattress in my spare room and noticed a terrible smell less than a week later, the mattress smelled awful! No one had ever slept in the bed since I bought it so I knew I was ripped of and sold a used mattress. I went back to the warehouse and told the girl who works their that they needed to refund me and come take their used stinky mattress away. She said there is no refunds and my receipt would say that. I told her I was never given a receipt and regardless it's illegal to sell used mattresses and say they are brand new. She told me I was out of luck and their are no refunds. I am now stuck with a terrible smelling mattress in my spare room that I can't use or even move on my own.

I posted an item for sale on Craigslist. In just a few hours after posting I received a text message from number (424) 237-8521 saying they wanted the item I was selling and wanted my address so they could send me a check and to assign their movers where to go. They wouldn't answer any of my questions and proceed to tell me they worked for Google and they needed me to enter a code.
