Winnebago scam

  • Monetary Loss: $2,000
I saw a 2007 Winnebago Access 31C on Craig's List-Knoxville for $2,000 with a number to text for more information. Thought it was a typo and asked the price and for more info. Texted back asking for my email so they could send me more details and pictures. Got email and explanation that it was a military member deploying and needed to get rid of the thing fast and that it was $2,000. Told "her" I'd take it and was sent a link to "ebay" to pay for it. Got the ebay gift cards and put the numbers in on the link they provided about 3:30 on 10-3-17. Said I would get confirmation within 24 hrs and when 38 had passed I started looking into it and finally contacted someone at ebay who informed me I'd been scammed. He looked to see if the gift cards had been redeemed and put a hold on the one that hadn't.

Concern others may fall for this and send EBay gift cards

Hello,

On September 10th, 2017 my husband noticed an add on Craigslist for a Golf Cart. The add stated the Golf Cart was a 2014 Electric Ezgo, in good condition with a list price of $1,500.00. The person, named Kellie Bennett, placed the add stating that with increasing summer kid activities they were taking a break from lake life and wanted to sell it for someone else to enjoy. the phone number provided was 661-527-5718. The post ID# was 6288522154. My husband called the phone number and the person stated that they still had it available. I will attach all the coorespondences between them, however the story changed once she spoke with my husband, claiming the golf cart was her husbands and he had died. She also stated that she and her daughter had moved to Omaha and that she would ship the golf cart to my husband. She listed her address as: 4906 Ruggles St. Omaha NE 68104. She then sent him an invoice from E-Bay requesting he send (3) E-Bay gift cards valued at $500.00 each and once received she would ship the golf cart. The eBay Puyer Protection Order ID# 69172492035. Needless to say, we became suspicious and decided not to purchase it. Once my husband requested to see it before sending the gift cards, she stopped communicating. We are now concerned that this picture was just taken of a random golf cart and that she/they/whomever is scamming people into sending them gift cards for an item that they do not have.

Her Email is [email protected]

We would appreciate you checking into this activity,

Thank You,

  • Monetary Loss: $400
this guy purchase you from eBay, them ask a return for defective item, then he returns to a different address using the same zip code, once eBay and PayPal get the message from USPS website is delivered they return the money but you never get the item back, you lose the money and the item, they get advantage that the USPS website does not show the actual address just the zip code and the city.

2014 Honda Foreman Rubicon Scam

  • by: whistler128

  • Sep 25, 2017
  • Monetary Loss: $0
I saw an ad on craigslist for a 2014 Honda Foreman Rubicon for $2,000. That is a great price for that so I was leery. Vicki Parker emailed in response that her husband had died a month ago, that she had moved out, and moved with her parents in KS, because "they were the only people she could trust now". She stated that she wanted to sell this on eBay for her protection and mine. She asked for my name, phone number, and address, and that eBay would contact me. Stupidly I gave that info, and within 5 minutes there was an email from eBay telling me how to purchase this item. The email came from an "eBay" address, and it looked very real. When I called the number in the email, someone answered and did an okay job at sounding like this was legitimate, even though I was reading a scam to him on the phone describing the same item, with a different person. He stuck to his story that the 4wheeler was in the eBay warehouse, and as long as I provide the $2000 in eBay gift cards info, they would then ship the item. I then looked up eBay's customer service number online and called them to confirm that this IS a scam.
