Ebay scam

  • by: kevinlozen

  • Feb 18, 2016
  • Monetary Loss: $220
I was trying to purchase items off eBay and was the high bidder when I saw the seller added to the description that the first person with $200 could have the item. I sent a message and he told me he would send me the item. He gave me the tracking number and asked me to Western Union him the money. Long story short I sent it.and he sent the item somewhere else and was lying the whole time! He gave me his military ID #034012250 and drivers license #064183464 so I thought it was legit.

Here are some emails. Please let me know if I have a case or I'm just out the money?

Well if u must cancel then I'm not mad at ya. However I would like to buy this from you and I have e the money plus more in hand. I'm just making sure I'm not throwing my money away on this.
greenhornett4044_0:

Ok sir I must cancel shipment in the morning...have a nice day..
Your previous message

Normally when a transaction is made outside of eBay the item is paid for upon delivery of the item to ensure everything is there and is in working condition. This also protects the buyer from having the shipment canceled once the money is sent.
greenhornett4044_0:

Yes plus a psvita I added
Your previous message

It was supposed to be a ps4, two controllers, 9 games and a head set?
greenhornett4044_0:

I still have people want to buy it but I already sold it and shipped it to you so if you wouldn't don't want to buy it let me know so I can stop the shipment and take the warranty for the PlayStation out your name

I thought this was a real thing was wanted to get this truck for my daughter and we were taken out of $1500.00

  • by: Lednum71

  • Monetary Loss: $1,500.00
This is the email that I went by and contacted about the truck. Hi, my name is Dianne Sharp

My 1997 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Z71 4x4 never had or need any paint/body work done, garaged keep always, without any mechanical problems, tires and wheels are in great shape as well, electric is working perfectly. The engine is 5.7L V8, gasoline fuel, the automatic transmission shifts perfectly and the 4x4 works like new, the truck has only 82k miles. Has a clean and clear US title under my name and there are no liens or loans on it. I am selling it at this final price of $1,500 because my husband died 1 month ago (he had a heart attack) and it brings me bad memories and that's the reason why I want to sell it asap. Me along with my daughter decided to sell the house and so we moved to my sister in Omaha, NE trying to start a new life.
I want to use eBay's services for the safety of both of us so if you're interested in purchasing this truck just email me with your full name, address including the zip code and phone number, so I can notify eBay that you are selected as my possible buyer and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure.

I am waiting for your reply
