  • Monetary Loss: $0
In response to my craigslist posting, potential buyer contacted me via text. We agreed upon a price. Buyer asked for my full name and address so they could mail payment via money order. I reluctantly obliged. Later I get a text indicating that the money order was overpaid and i should cash it and send excess back.

Scammed by a Sgt Susan Williams

  • Monetary Loss: $1800
She had a 1998 Chevy Silverado z71 for sale on Craigslist for $1800. Paid her the money and still no vehicle. Amazon.com says they have no transaction of any sort with the truck nor my name. Have the invoice Amazon sent me and the emails from both parties. I'm a single mom of 2 young kids and that was all my tax money. Looks like we're back to walking.

Craigslist

  • Monetary Loss: $0
This individual has contacted me and a few others about wanting to purchase items off of CraigsList from us. They want us to use Pay Pal and say they will send a courier to come pick up the merchandise once their payment has cleared. I was unsure about the process and felt a little unsecure so I typed this users email into Google and it is already posted on many sites as a scammer. Lucky I caught this before my transaction went through and it was too late.

Here's the email:
Hi, Thanks for your email. The house is still available. Let me start by introducing myself.My name is Valerie Butler..I own the house located at 744 S Blackwell Ave Tyler, TX 75701 and this is a new experience for me giving out my house for rent. first and foremost,I am hearing impaired,not deaf though just Hard of hearing. I would have loved to be able to get to contact you on phone but due to my condition, emails are the fastest means for us to communicate now.

The initial plan was to sell out the House which I tried, but my agents inflates the prize of house because of their selfish gains and it takes longer to sell. Because of this reason and more i need a responsible person (With good credit) that can take very good care of the house as i am not after the money, but want it to be clean and for you to take care of it as if it were yours. Pet are allowed as long as they are not destructive. The rent is $600 and security deposit is $600.

im away on a very important business so i won't be able to come and show you around the house as i would have loved to and i might be gone for a while, but attached below are pictures of the interior of the house so you can see what it looks like from the inside . You are free to ask any more information you would like to know about the house and also visit the location.the address is written below.

Ford F-150

  • Monetary Loss: $0
Saw a 2005 Ford F-150 on Craigslist. The price was too cheap so I thought it either had to be wrong or there is something major wrong with it. I contacted the person via text and they replied with a different number and asked for my email to communicate. This "Olivia" stated she the price was right but she was in the military and stationed in Arizona. She then stated she had the truck with her but if I was interested we could start the transaction via eBay. She requested my information. Of course, when she stated nothing was wrong with the truck and the cheap price was correct I knew it was a scam.
