I have been scammed by a fake Craigslist post

  • Monetary Loss: $3,800
I responded to Craigslist post about a Tahoe for sale. I was texted by the supposed owner claiming to live in Montana. I was emailed by a carfax site claiming to be a mutual arbitrator for seller/buyer transaction. I paid the supposedly refundable deposit (60% of price). I was then emailed by seller requesting full amount be paid to carfax service before he shipped supposed vehicle. I paid the carfax service the remaining balance (supposedly refundable if we didn't receive vehicle on time) & all contact with seller & carfax service stopped. I continued trying to contact them but no response!

Trying to sell us an RV for $2400

Tried to Scam us with an eBay sale. We saw an ad on Craigslist for an RV for $2400.00. We inquired about it. Were sent a bunch of pictures of a camper. The camper was located on an RV dealer lot. The pictures and price made us question it. We didn't like the camper. This person told us they need to sell the camper because her spouse died. We told her we weren't interested and then sent us an email back that the camper would be delivered and we could try it out for 5 days. So we knew it wasn't a real deal.

SCAM: 2005 Fleetwood Prowler 220 RBS

EMMA CROMER is placing an add in CRAIGSLIST U.P MARQUETTE stating that her husband passed away just 1 month ago and she just can handle keeping this camper because of the memories shared in it with her recently deceased husband for $2000. When you call her phone it first has you state your name and number then texts you back. She refuses to show the camper in person and states that you must buy it through eBay with a money gram. Well I contacted eBay and they said it was a scam and they don't use money grams or don't suggest emailing proof that you got an eBay gift card to purchase the item. I also searched her online and found multiple fraud reports on her. DO NOT DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY TO THIS LADY or eBay gift cards. IT IS 100% SCAM! She is all over craigslist a lot in the up of Michigan and Wisconsin selling boats, campers, motorcycles and a tractor that have been reported and she also has many different names.
