Dec 17, 2016
Monetary Loss: $1009$
I seen a 2003 Honda Accord for 1000$ on this website called Offer up. I contacted the seller( Christina Poole) to let her know I was interested. She e-mailed me back letting me know that it was a quick sell that she wanted it gone because her son had died and it was his. She told me she goes through eBay motors( Edward Ochoa,agent). He contacts me via email stating payment process. I go to Walmart and get a Walmart2 Walmart money transfer of a 1009$. Everything seemed legitimate. She thanks me I thank her. Hours later , eBay motors email me saying I have to send another 1000$ for insurance to ship the car to me. I emailed him back wanting to talk to him asking why he didn't state that up front. I emailed Christina to talk to the agent and to call me. No response after several attempts. I contacted eBay motors( Shawn a real agent). He told me of the spoof fraud.
