Fake Jeep ad on craigslist

  • Monetary Loss: $0
Saw ad for Jeep in Maryland on Craigslist with contact number of 323-682-8542. I texted asking for more info. Got a reply from 406-206-1956 asking for my email. Gave email and got the reply email from [email protected]gmail.com that read:

"The 1998 Jeep Wrangler 4x4 Sahara is still available. It is in a good condition, no scratches, no damages, never been involved in any kind of accidents. It has a 4.0L L6 SFI engine (great on gas), manual transmission & only 89,342 miles. ABSOLUTELY NO ISSUES at all and I have the clean title in hand. I'm selling it at this final price $1,200 because my husband passed away 2 months ago (he had a heart attack) and brings me bad memories and that's the reason I want to sell it asap. I also got a new job, moved back to my hometown, and many other things have priority now, so, this car has to go. If you are interested in buying my car, feel free to email me "

I searched this site for [email protected] and found the same dead husband scam routine.

Craigslist Cashier's Check Fraud

  • Mar 9, 2020
  • Monetary Loss: $0
This person answered my Craigslist ad about some electronic equipment I'm looking to sell, wanted me to provide name, address, and phone number so they can send me the check because they can't meet in person due to work and supposedly a close family wedding. Upon research, seems like this person has been the subject of numerous scam reports. Please be aware.

I have been sold a small boat with a tax lien

  • by: STRIDER

  • Mar 24, 2020
  • Monetary Loss: $4,500
I found an 18 ft boat on Craig's List for sale. I researched all information I could find to make sure all numbers on boat matched registration and Coast Guard records and all look ok. Paid a Mr. Mike Peppers in Fairfield by personal check. Received Pink slip for boat title, Pink slip for trailer and Bill of Sale for both. DMV visit to change title was told there was a tax lien on it and boat can not be sold. Have spent 5 days research to try to find out who placed the lien and for how much. FAILED.!!
