Truck scam

Offered great looking truck via letgo. Said it was created I. WA at Air Force Base and wanted to use an eBay "agent" to transaction deal. Supposedly needed name and address, not an eBay member id. Total scam. Albeit they relied to recall all emails, they forgot about screenshots and have been reported to USAF fraud, eBay fraud and letgo fraud departments along with local PD....luckily I have a PD detective in the family as well as an active Air Force officer to help out. Watch out and recommend not dealing with whoever is calling themselves Dora Moss.

Laptop Robbed

  • Monetary Loss: $500
So I was selling my laptop for $500 and this “girl” supposedly named Hannah Greene was interested on buying it so we started talking and she told that she lived in Hawthorne, CA and gave me an address (3501 jack Northrop ave, Hawthorne CA 90250) so I could ship the laptop over there since the city is far from where I live. I shipped the laptop and she was supposedly using Western Union and I had received an email that said that I needed to prove to them that I had shipped the laptop by replying to their email with a copy of the shipment receipt so they could release the money. I replied to the email with the receipt’s copy but Western Union never emailed back or anything so I told the buyer that we should use another method so that I could get the money. Long story short, I asked her to pay me through Zelle and she made up a story about how her card didn’t work with Zelle and she had to go to the bank and ask for a new one and all that BS. She received the laptop on a Tuesday and proceeded to keep me waiting for the money for the next 4 days, still replying to my texts and everything, so I wouldn’t get suspicious, until this morning. She told me she was finally gonna pay me today but then ignored me the entire day and I went into Letgo to deport her account and found out it is on pending moderation now. Obviously, I got scammed, and I hope that people check out this page so they avoid all these “sellers” and “buyers” who really just make an experience that should be nice and enjoyable into a f***ing migraine. ALWAYS SELL AND BUY FACE-TO-FACE WITH CASH. DO NOT TRUST ANYONE. IF IT DOESNT FEEL RIGHT, DO NOT DO IT.
