Exceptional Ford Ranger

  • Monetary Loss: $2000
I seen this truck on Craigslist, made contact with the supposed owner Amanda Lowood who said she was using a consignment company to handle the transaction. I then made a deposit to hold the vehicle Jan. 22,2016 and made the final payment Jan. 26, 2016. They sent me a confirmation email saying payment was received and that the delivery process would begin in a few hours. I then received a txt message from Amanda saying Thank You and that she hopes that I am satisfied with the vehicle. After 6 o'clock, when the vehicle was supposed to ship, I tried to go back to the website to check and it was gone!
[email protected] - then researched this email address and found that it was associated with another supposed company that also did not exist any more.
All this was done using OneVanilla Prepaid cards.
I have reported this to OneVanilla and have file a dispute for the charges as I have all the receipts, emails, and text messages for this transaction.
