Craigslist Scammer Posing as U.S. SSG. Mark McCormick

Posted in database, ebay spoof, scammer by Chief on December 4, 2009

I continue to correspond with the scammer who calls himself SSG. Mark McCormick. Here is his second email to me. He must be rather busy scamming others, for he was delinquent in responding to me.

Hi again,
My maxima is still available. As I said in my first email the car is currently located in London, United Kingdom. It will be shipped from here by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me anything. You will get it to the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked forward to your place. Shipping will be done door-to-door, to your exact location, so you will not have to pick the car up yourself.

The price for the car is $2,900 USD. This price includes all the shipping taxes and fees. Ebay will hold the funds until you receive and accept the car.I will have access to the funds only after you test and inspect the car (you will have 10 days to do that) and in case something goes wrong or the car is not as advertised you will be fully refunded and the car will be shipped back to me on my expense. From the moment the payment is secured by eBay the shipping process will begin and it will arrive at your address in about 3 max. 4 working days. You will also receive all the documents including the title and a Bill of Sale. The cargo is insured so if the car is damaged during the shipping you will also be refunded.
Basically the deal is as easy as this:
1. Buyer, seller reach an agreement (price and delivery conditions)
2. Buyer sends money to eBay.
3. eBay confirms to seller that the amount has been received.
4. Seller performs the required services (shipping, insurance).
5. Buyer accepts delivery and informs eBay about the acceptance.
6. eBay releases the money to seller.
As you can see, you will receive the car BEFORE any money is released to me. You will get the chance to inspect it, test drive it and everything you like while your money is still safely held in eBay’s account. ONLY after you confirm to eBay that you agree with the vehicle, they will release the money to me.
If, for some reason, you disagree with the car (I assure you that is NOT going to happen since my car is in IMMACULATE condition inside and out) it will be shipped back to me on MY EXPENSE and eBay will send you your money back.

I need your full name and shipping address so i can start the transaction with eBay

Respectfully,
SSG. Mark McCormick

||||||||||||||||||||||||||   Another email from the scammer. I am stringing him along to get another fake ebay domain to kill 🙂

All the preparations for shipping the car are made. I am just waiting for eBay to confirm me that they received and secured your payment into their accounts, and I will ship the car to you.  Looking forward to ship the car to you ASAP

    I also got the same kind of reply from the person for a Honda Accord that he was going to sell from UK.

    XXXX, after talking to my wife we decided to go along with your offer. I decided to make you a discount. I am willing to sell the car for $2500. XXXX, as I said in my first email the car is currently located in London, United Kingdom. It will be shipped from here by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me anything. You will get it to the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked forward to your place. Shipping will be done door-to-door, to your exact location, so you will not have to pick the car up yourself.

    The price for the car is $2,500 USD. This price includes all the shipping taxes and fees. Ebay will hold the funds until you receive and accept the car.I will have access to the funds only after you test and inspect the car (you will have 3 days to do that) and in case somethins goes wrong or the car is not as described you will be fully refunded. From the moment the payment is secured by eBay the shipping process will begin and it will arrive at your address in about max. 3 working days. You will also receive all the documents including the title and a Bill of Sale. Also the car will arrive with all the documentation’s required for registration and the keys. I will send you all the papers and documents (clear title, bills of sale, car’s manual) to prove the ownership and to be able to register it with no problem. The clear title and the bill of sale will be both signed so you can become owner of the car on spot.The cargo is insured so if the car is damaged during the shipping you will also be refunded.
    Please reply with your full name and address, and I will start the process with Ebay. You will receive all the transaction details from them.

    God Bless America and you!

    i had the same situation with “ssg. Mark McCormick” and this was his email to me

    Hello and sorry for my delay,
    The 2005 Honda Accord is in perfect working condition.This detailed vehicle makes the exterior look like it just came off the assembly line.The car has only 71,240 original miles. Vin #: 1HGCM66805A038395.

    It was never involved in any accident, not even minor ones. The body and paint are great. The interior is super clean, mechanically, it runs like a cat on carpet.

    Here are the pics of the car, click on this link :

    http://picasaweb.google.com/vaiothebest/Accord

    So if you decide on buying the car, I want the deal closed only through eBay. You will make the payment to eBay and they will hold the money until you receive the car. ONLY AFTER you receive the car and you inspect it, eBay will release the payment to me, in this way we are both protected. I signed up for US military forces and I was sent to United Kingdom with my department to improve the military relations between our country and UK. I am located in London, United Kingdom. One month ago, my wife moved here with me and brought the car with her, but now we have to sell it back in the United States, because we can’t drive it here as we can’t register it; it has US specs and everything, and registering it in Europe will take for ever. My final price on it is US 2,800 $. If you will take it for this price, I am willing to handle the shipping .It will be shipped from here by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me anything. You will get it to the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked forward to your place. From the moment the payment is secured by eBay the shipping process will begin and it will arrive at your address in about 3 max. 4 working days. Please get back to me asap if you decide to buy, and include in your e-mail your full name and address where you want it shipped so I can start the deal with eBay. You will receive all the transaction payment and shipping details from them.

    Whitney,
    Thanks for commenting with the text from the scammer. That allows the search engines to pick it up and hopefully prevent someone else from losing their cold, hard cash.

    I am not aware of any focused law enforcement activity to reduce this type activity. The (volunteer) colleagues with which I work merely make the criminals’ life a bit more difficult by notifying domain registrars and web hosts of their customer’s infractions and force the scammers to change domains and web hosts frequently. If you have any interest in joining the fight, feel free to contact me.

    Here is how it works:
    The car is not listed on eBay, I am just using their services to make this a smooth transaction for both of us. Please let me know what you decide.
    1. First of all I will need the following details from you: full name, shipping address and telephone number.
    2. After I will receive the details from you, I will forward them to eBay.
    3. After they will process your info, they will send us both invoices (email forms).The price for the car is $2,960 USD. This price includes all the shipping taxes and fees.
    4. After you will make the payment in an eBay trust fund account and confirm it to them they will contact me and I will ship the car to you. After you receive the car you will have 10 days to test, verify and do whatever you need to the car. If you will buy, then I will receive the payment details from eBay so that I can pick up the money.
    5. If the car is not as I told you or have some problems, or is not as described, they will refund you 100%. There is no risk in this deal. I don’t touch your money until you receive and inspect the car. The transaction is simple so everything should go as planed. If the car is not as advertised and decide not to keep it eBay will refund you the money, no questions asked, and shipping back the car will be my concern. I think this is more than fair for the both of us. Please take into consideration that I will get paid only after you receive the car and make sure everything is as agreed.

    6. From the moment the payment is secured by eBay the shipping process will begin and it will arrive at your address in about 3 max. 4 business days. You will also receive all the documents including the titles and a Bill of Sale. The cargo is insured so if the car is damaged during the shipping you will also be refunded.

    Thanks in advance!

I am a sergeant in the USAF and I was sent here for training to a millitary base to improve the military relations between our country and United Kingdom, our allies. I am located in London, United Kingdom. One month ago, my wife moved here with me and brought the car with her, but now we have to sell it back in the United States, because we can’t drive it here. We can`t register it here because of the US specs and everything, and registering here, in Europe, will take forever. European reguations are awful here, believe me, especially that they drive on the left side of the road an they have the steering wheel on the right side of te car. My final price for the car is $2,900 . If you will take this price, I am willing to handle the shipping myself, no cost for you. The car will be shipped to the US by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me or you anything.

    i just found this website. I answered to a similiar e-mail (I know that wasn’t really clever)
    I just sent my name and mailing adress but made no payments. Then I sent another e-mail (i soon as i found out it was a scam) saying i’m not interested in the transaction anymore. Is there any risk for me since I gave my full name and adress and is there anything I should do about it?

  16. Chief said, on January 16, 2010 at 11:43 pm

    Sophie, I think you are safe. The scammer does not really want your ID — he wants you to send him money. If you told him the deal is off, he will likely ignore you, and unfortunately, prepare for the next potential victim.

    Thanks for stopping by! — Chief

    there’s also this one who said he is a casino dealer on a cruise ship
    Hello there,
    The Toyota Avalon advertised on craigslist is still for sale. My asking price for the car is $2800. The car is currently located in Boca Raton. It is a 2000 model loaded with everything. Currently the car has 92,400 miles, the VIN# is 4T1BF28B7YU056865. The car is very well maintained, it has just been completely serviced. The engine runs very good and the automatic transmission shifts perfectly. I’m selling the car because I don’t have time to enjoy it due to my job (I work as a casino dealer on a cruise ship) plus that I have some financial problems and I need money very soon. I have to tell you that I’m currently at work and I left the car in Boca Raton, FL at the shipping company, it’s already packed and waiting to be shipped anywhere. If you decide to purchase it, you will receive all the documents of the car (owner’s manuals, keys, clear title, bill of sale) in order to register it under your name. Regarding the payment, I will use only eBay Vehicle Purchase Protection program. If you are interested, this is how eBay Vehicle Purchase Protection program works:
    1. You send me your full name, complete address (I need for shipping) and your phone number.
    2. I open a transaction with eBay Vehicle Purchase Protection.
    3. eBay Vehicle Purchase Protection will contact you with an invoice regarding our transaction.
    4 You will send the payment to eBay Vehicle Purchase Protection and they will notify me to ship the vehicle to your location.
    5. After you will inspect/drive the vehicle and decide to keep it, eBay Vehicle Purchase Protection will forward me the funds and the deal is done.
    Basically, eBay Vehicle Purchase Protection will secure the funds until you will receive and inspect the car. You will have 5 days inspection period. If the vehicle is not like described, you will have to ship it back on my expense and they will give you a full refund. This way, you will be able to inspect the vehicle before committing to buy it and I know that you have the money and you aren’t just fooling around. I will wait your reply.
    Thank you!

    this one is supposed to have financial problems:
    Hello,

    Thank you so much for contacting me regarding my 1999 Nissan Maxima SE Limited Edition. The car has 127,000 miles, one owner, it’s in perfect condition without any mechanical problems, with no damages or hidden defects, no need for additional repairs, clear title without any accidents, liens or loans. All power equipment are in working order. I have all the car’s manual, 2 spare of keys, all the documents and papers. The last price for the car is 2,400.00$. I was fired from my job because the financial crises that affected almost everyone including the company I worked at. I’m in a hurry to find a buyer because I’m in debts with my bank, so now you can see the reason why I’m selling my car at 2,400.00$. I want to make this transaction through eBay’s Vehicle Purchase Program. I want eBay because they are the biggest Company and we can close this deal fast and safe for both of us. If you are interested to buy email me your full name and shipping address (street,city,state,zip code,country) so I can open the case with eBay.

    Thanks you,

My final price on it is US 2,800 $. If you will take it for this price, I am willing to handle the shipping. It will be shipped from here by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me anything.

    I had the same email sent to me through craigslist! I almost got scammed today as well. With all the money that I have. I am currently messing with this person and making them believe that I still want to buy the car. I knew this deal was too good to be true. Here’s the post:

    Hello,

    Oh and I received this information after a few emails.
    Hello,
    The car is located in Chicago,IL(i just moved here with my job)is already crated at the shipping company ready to be
    sent to any location anywhere in the world,like i told we will use eBay Vehicle Purchase Protection,so we can both
    be protected and insured.The price for the car is $2,300 with shipping included..
    1. Buyer, seller reach an agreement (price and delivery conditions)
    2. Buyer sends money to eBay.
    3. eBay confirms to seller that the amount has been received.
    4. Seller performs the required services (shipping, insurance).
    5. Buyer accepts delivery and informs eBay about the acceptance.
    6.. eBay releases the money to seller.
    As you can see, you will receive the car BEFORE any money is released to me. You will get the chance to inspect it, test drive it and everything you like while your money is still safely held in eBay’s account. ONLY after you confirm to eBay that you agree with the vehicle, they will release the money to me.
    If, for some reason, you disagree with the car (I assure you that is NOT going to happen since my Toyota Corolla is in IMMACULATE condition inside and out) it will be shipped back to me on MY EXPENSE and eBay will send you your money back.
    If you wish to proceed further, I will need your complete name and address so I can start the transaction with eBay’s Vehicle Purchase Protection Program.

    The 2005 Honda Accord EX V6 is in perfect working condition.This detailed vehicle makes the exterior look like it just came off the assembly line.The car has only 71,240 original miles. Vin #: 1HGCM66805A038395.

    It was never involved in any accident, not even minor ones. The body and paint are great. The interior is super clean, mechanically, it runs like a cat on carpet.

    my address is:
    56 Sloane Street
    Zip: SW1X 9NU, London
    United Kingdom

    AND THEN THE SECOND E-MAIL

    Hi again,
    I fully understand your concerns, but I am a responsible and honest person here in UK, serving our country in the military, and would not risk my freedom and family for any sum of money! And I definately don`t like being called a thief! That is why I suggested using eBay for completing our transaction, that we should have a thisrd party to come with a guarantee that I wont lose my car and you wont lose the money.
    As I said in my first email the car is currently located in London, United Kingdom. It will be shipped from here by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me anything. You will get it to the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked forward to your place. Shipping will be done door-to-door, to your exact location, so you will not have to pick the car up yourself.

    The price for the car is $2,800 USD. This price includes all the shipping taxes and fees. Ebay will hold the funds until you receive and accept the car.I will have access to the funds only after you test and inspect the car (you will have 10 days to do that) and in case something goes wrong or the car is not as advertised you will be fully refunded and the car will be shipped back to me on my expense. From the moment the payment is secured by eBay the shipping process will begin and it will arrive at your address in about 3 max. 4 working days. You will also receive all the documents including the title and a Bill of Sale. The cargo is insured so if the car is damaged during the shipping you will also be refunded.
    Basically the deal is as easy as this:
    1. Buyer, seller reach an agreement (price and delivery conditions)
    2. Buyer sends money to eBay.
    3. eBay confirms to seller that the amount has been received.
    4. Seller performs the required services (shipping, insurance).
    5. Buyer accepts delivery and informs eBay about the acceptance.
    6. eBay releases the money to seller.
    As you can see, you will receive the car BEFORE any money is released to me. You will get the chance to inspect it, test drive it and everything you like while your money is still safely held in eBay’s account. ONLY after you confirm to eBay that you agree with the vehicle, they will release the money to me.
    If, for some reason, you disagree with the car (I assure you that is NOT going to happen since my car is in IMMACULATE condition inside and out) it will be shipped back to me on MY EXPENSE and eBay will send you your money back.

    I need your full name and shipping address so i can start the transaction with eBay

    my name is Paul , I am Navy and stationed in Norfolk, Va.

If everything is as good as it sounds, my father in law would pay you cash in about 5 days when I can get it to him. shipping will not be necessary.

    Hello and thank you for your interest in my 2006 Honda Accord Sedan EX-L. I must tell you that the car is in perfect working condition.This is a 1 owner (non smoker) vehicle that has ONLY 51,185 miles original miles. The accord is FULLY LOADED with all the available options. This Accord has been impeccably maintained over the years and it shows that! The car has never been in any accidents or modified in any way. The exterior of the car is in pristine condition and the interior of the car is spotless. The interior is impeccable with no tears, no rips, no blemishes. The mechanics of the car work properly as they should. VIN Number is 1HGCM66836A021575.
    Here are the pics of the car :
    http://picasaweb.google.com/velinuse/Accord#
    If you decide on buying the car, I want the deal closed through eBay. Let me tell you how this works: you will make the payment to eBay and they will hold the money until you receive the car. ONLY AFTER you receive the car and you inspect it, ebay will release the payment to me, this way we`ll be both protected. I am a sergeant in the US Army and I was detached in London, United Kingdom. One month ago, my wife moved here with me and brought the car with her, but now we have to sell it back in the United States, because we can’t drive it here. We can`t register it here because of the US specs and everything, and registering here, in Europe, will take forever. European reguations are awful here, believe me, especially that they drive on the left side of the road an they have the steering wheel on the right side of te car. My final price for the car is $2,900 . If you will take this price, I am willing to handle the shipping myself, no cost for you. The car will be shipped to the US by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me or you anything. The car will be shipped to the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked to your place. From the moment the payment is secured by eBay, the shipping process will begin and you will have the car shipped at your house in no more than 3 days. Please get back to me asap if you decide to buy, and include in your e-mail your full name and address where you want the car shipped so I can start the deal with eBay. You will receive all the payment instructions and shipping details from them.

    Mr. Anderson,

    Ha! We appreciate your sense of humor. Feel free to place a real email address when you comment. We share them with NO ONE !

    Yes, it would seem that the US and UK would have pretty much smoothed out their military relations since they have been allies for the past century. Thanks for posting. If you’d like to join the fight, load the scammers picture gallery, then click abuse, and send a note that it is a scammer’s gallery. Feel free to reference your posting above [ https://scammerdatabase.wordpress.com/2009/12/04/craigslist-scammer-posing-as-u-s-ssg-mark-mccormick/#comment-350 ] as you only get 200 characters to describe the abuse.

  41. Thompson said, on February 9, 2010 at 7:09 pm

    He is still out there trying to scam people. He’s now showing this 2006 Honda Accord loaded down, for $2900. The story is that he’s in the army LT. Robert Gardner, and he’s over in Madrid Spain and how his wife moved there and how the car is so expensive to register in that Country. Oh the lies just keep on coming he’s game is so weak and played that is why people are on this web page speaking about his played butt. Get rid of this low life and he should be ashamed of hisself for misrepresenting the Military who are really about something, hell they are putting their lives on the line for somebody like that SICKO. “YUKIE”

I am in a freaking situation and don’t need an as H*&^ like you to make my day worst than it is. You just added more frustration to my nightmare. You are pathetic a disgrace to oter poeple.

    Liz, thanks for posting the text of the email. Your email to the criminal will be like water on a duck’s back — it’ll roll off and be ignored. My advice? Find him again with another email address and waste his time. When he offers a fake ebay website, let’s kill it for him. These guys think it is easy money; the least we can do is make their lives more difficult.

    I had replied to this scammer :
    Your sick !!!! that is terrible that you are using a tragedy to scam people out of their money. This is the worst scam i have seen so far. Someone could really believe you who is gullible. You should go to hell for pretending that your son passed away. People need to learn about how low scammers will go to make money…..your name is definitely not Elizabeth, and i bet you are a man, and i bet this is only one of the many many fake email accounts you hold. Some day you will be arrested!!!!

It brings very bad memories to me, I want to get rid of it.The buyer will receive the car with all papers and receipts that he needs to register it to his name.Shipping will be done whit DAS and it will take no more then 2-3 days. I have a friend there who will manage me a low price shipping and I assumed that it is my duty to pay for shipping it.It will be delivered directly to your address.
    Anyway, I have to let you know that I want a fast deal so if you are really interested in buying it,please reply with the following information’s:
    -Your full name;
    -Your shipping address.(street,city,state,zip code)

    IMSO, these guys are professional criminals and play on the honesty present in our culture. You’ve done nothing wrong! Now, we ask that you tell all your friends and family how these scammers work so that they will not be burned by one of these “too good to be true” deals. — Chief

    Jose,
    There is no need to feel stupid. These guys are professionals and play upon the honesty in our culture. Unfortunately, they take money from dozens of victims every day. We’re glad you found us! Good luck finding a real vehicle. — Chief

    Hey i send him my name and adress before i found out it was a scam do you think they can do anything with that?

  62. Chief said, on April 21, 2010 at 11:56 am

    Jose, it is unlikely he will do anything with your info. He wants cold, hard cash — not your address. You can ignore him, or better yet, just tell him you found a better deal , or your daughter stole the money, , and will not be buying from him. — Chief

    I am sick of this scammer using the US Military to scam people out of their hard earned money. can any one do anything. I contacted eBay, Craigslist and Photobucket and they all cannot do a damn thing. I have had 3 different e-mails from posts. This scammer does not even pay attention to the e-mail add he sends correspondence to as he has sent me the same BS 3 times on 3 different cars, using different names

    As I know that my current situation is pretty special I want the deal closed only through eBay’s Buyer Protection Program in order for you to be 100% protected. You will make the payment to eBay and they will hold the money until you receive the car. ONLY AFTER you receive the car and inspect it (for 10 days) eBay will release the payment to me; in this way we are both protected. Anyway i am sure that if you won`t be satisfied with the car i will surely find another buyer in your area and there will be no need for you to ship the car back.
    I am located in London, United Kingdom and I was sent here to improve the military relationships between our country and United Kingdom. One month ago, my wife moved here with me and brought the car with her, but now we have to sell it back in the United States because In order to be able to register this car here, I would have to pay very high import/custom taxes. My final price on it is $ 2850. If you will take it for this price, I am willing to handle the shipping. It will be shipped from here by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me anything. You will get it to the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked forward to your place. You will receive the car in about 4 days. Please get back to me asap if you decide to buy, and include in your e-mail your full name and address where you want it shipped so I can start the deal with eBay.

    BE CAREFUL Y’ALL AND I HOPE THIS INFO HELPS SOMEONE AVOID LOSING MONEY

  66. Chief said, on April 22, 2010 at 7:21 am

    Martin, I know you are frustrated. I have been researching these guys for two years. Ebay & Craigslist could do something, but they do not. It would cost them money to properly monitor and report these criminals. All I have ever received in reply to my abuse reports to Ebay and Craigslist are canned emails. Photobucket will close an album if you send the entire contents of the email (with header) to abuse at photobucket.com.

    You are correct in that the scammer does not read the first two or three emails you send. He sends out format letters just to keep you on the hook until he sends the “Ebay” letter. At that point, he will attempt to converse with you — typically in very poor English.

  67. Chief said, on April 22, 2010 at 7:26 am

    Martin, thanks for posting these. It will help someone down the road. The best advice anyone can give with regards to purchasing items advertised on Craigslist is, “If you can’t see it with your own two eyes and touch it, it is a vapor.” Craigslist was designed to be a local trading medium. Long distance deals can be disastrous . Ask any of the victims that have commented here. — Chief

  68. James said, on May 11, 2010 at 4:12 pm

    I did some work on this. The “ebay” document has a phone number in Northfield, Mass. to send a fax verifying western union payment. Notified the local police; it’s in their hands now.

    To think I could get a 2006 Harley for $2900? ..if it sounds too good t obe true, it probably is…

    another tip off…there are no Staff Sergeants in the U.S. Air Force…tech sergeants, yes, but not staff…a jarhead remembers!

    Dear “Sgt. Stephen Holmes”—
    It is ashamed what parasite can be found on any web site or in any garbage or under proverbial unturned stone. You should be embarrassed of yourself (your mother definitely would be) and ashamed that you have to lower your self to the point of scamming people out of there hard earned money. WORK is the method that most people earn the money you are so disgustingly and illegally attempting to take. You are a freaking idiot not to mention a worthless piece of sh&@!! And although I am being kind to you with my portrayal of the slimy little person you must be, I still do hope that you rot in hell. My sympathies are extended to your minimal existence and the disgust and heartache that you must inflict upon your mother and father (hopefully he is not like you)l. Just to clarify this situation, you are undoubtedly a little pathetic weasel and a disgrace to anyone who has the misfortune of knowing you. YOu can take your BS and shove it where the sun doesn’t shine. Well you properly like it.Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. You and your kind of cockroach people make me sick! Go ahead continue to change you e-mail and your letters, but you CANNOT run from your little weasel self. You have to look in that mirror each morning and see what a shell of a pathetic, slimy, little weasel person (for the lack of any other word) that you truly are. iI really hope that God has no mercy on your soul.

    Hello and thank you for your interest in my 2001 Lexus GS 300. I must tell you that the car is in perfect working condition.This is a 1 owner (non smoker) vehicle that has 113,062 original miles. The lexus is FULLY LOADED with all the available options. This lexus has been impeccably maintained over the years and it shows that! The car has never been in any accidents or modified in any way. The exterior of the car is in pristine condition and the interior of the car is spotless. The interior is impeccable with no tears, no rips, no blemishes. The mechanics of the car work properly as they should. VIN Number is JT8BD69S410144753.

ONLY AFTER you receive the car and you inspect it, ebay will release the payment to me, this way we`ll be both protected. I am a sergeant in the US Army and I was detached in London, United Kingdom. One month ago, my wife moved here with me and brought the car with her, but now we have to sell it back in the United States, because we can’t drive it here. We can`t register it here because of the US specs and everything, and registering here, in Europe, will take forever. European reguations are awful here, believe me, especially that they drive on the left side of the road an they have the steering wheel on the right side of te car. My final price for the car is $1,400 . If you will take this price, I am willing to handle the shipping myself, no cost for you. The car will be shipped to the US by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me or you anything. The car will be shipped to the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked to your place. From the moment the payment is secured by eBay, the shipping process will begin and you will have the car shipped at your house in no more than 3 days.

ONLY AFTER you receive the car and you inspect it, ebay will release the payment to me, this way we`ll be both protected. I am a sergeant in the US Army and I was detached in London, United Kingdom. One month ago, my wife moved here with me and brought the car with her, but now we have to sell it back in the United States, because we can’t drive it here. We can`t register it here because of the US specs and everything, and registering here, in Europe, will take forever. European reguations are awful here, believe me, especially that they drive on the left side of the road an they have the steering wheel on the right side of te car. My final price for the car is $1,400 . If you will take this price, I am willing to handle the shipping myself, no cost for you. The car will be shipped to the US by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me or you anything. The car will be shipped to the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked to your place. From the moment the payment is secured by eBay, the shipping process will begin and you will have the car shipped at your house in no more than 3 days. Please get back to me asap if you decide to buy, and include in your e-mail your full name and address where you want the car shipped so I can start the deal with eBay. You will receive all the payment instructions and shipping details from them.

My final price on it is US 1,350 $. If you will take it for this price, I am willing to handle the shipping. It will be shipped from here by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me anything. You will get it to the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked forward to your place. You will receive the car in about 3 days.

    and the fourth

    Joshua, the car is automatic. The car is in perfect condition inside and out. The timing belt was recently changed. This car always passed emissions tests. The tires are almost new and the oil is changed. The water pump and the brake disks have been replaced. This car needs nothing but a new driver.
    Thank you and looking forward to hearing from you after you make the payment. Joshua, as soon as ebay confirms me that payment has been made, I will start the shipping process.

    Kylie, I am sorry this criminal defrauded you. You have nothing to be ashamed of … these guys are professionals and play on the honesty prevalent in our culture. If you have not done so, I encourage you to report this crime to The Internet Crime Complaint Center http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx . While you may never see the results of the investigation, be sure you are strengthening the case by doing so. Post the fake ebay emails here and we can slow the scammers down by reporting the abuses to the internet resources responsible for aiding the criminal. — Chief

    As I know that my current situation is pretty special I want the deal closed only through eBay’s Buyer Protection Program in order for you to be 100% protected. You will make the payment to eBay and they will hold the money until you receive the car. ONLY AFTER you receive the car and you inspect it(for 10 days) eBay will release the payment to me; in this way we are both protected. Anyway i am sure that if you will don`t be satisfied about the car i will surely find another buyer in your area and there will be no need for you to ship the car back.
    I am located in London, England and I was sent here to improve the military relationships between USA and UK. One month ago, my wife moved here with me and brought the car with her, but now we have to sell it back in the US because we can’t register it here; it has US specs and everything, and registering it here in Europe will take for ever. My final price is $1,600 USD. If you will take it for this price, I am willing to handle the shipping. It will be shipped from here by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me anything. You will get it to the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked forward to your place. You will receive the car in about 3 days. Please get back to me asap if you decide to buy, and include in your e-mail your full name and address where you want it shipped so I can start the deal with eBay. You will receive all the transaction payment and shipping details from them.

    Jim, thanks for posting the text of the criminal’s email. I see that you — or some other scam fighter — has successfully killed the photobucket album. Once you receive the email from the fake ebay company, feel free to post it also. Every bit of data for the search engines helps prevent potential victims from being defrauded.

    Same person seem to have got me also. It seems they are relentless in trying to scam enough people for a living. Same old story with wife moving to Madrid with a 2001 Maxima. I just graduated college and moved to NJ area and need a decently priced car I have been saving for. It seems this bloodsucker would’ve emptied me and left me in the dust if it had not been for carfax.com (family member had a couple reports left from when he bought a used car recently) and this site. You guys are awesome for helping others smell out a scam. I am very grateful and god bless you for saving a poor graduate just trying to make a living in this economy. Here I included the e-mail and the e-mail address along with the picasa link the piece of scum used.

    Latest e-mail:

    As I said in my first email the car is currently located in Madrid, Spain. It will be shipped from here by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me anything. You will get it to the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked forward to your place. Shipping will be done door-to-door, to your exact location, so you will not have to pick the car up yourself.

    The price for the car is $1,300 USD. This price includes all the shipping taxes and fees. Ebay will hold the funds until you receive and accept the car.I will have access to the funds only after you test and inspect the car (you will have 3 days to do that) and in case somethins goes wrong or the car is not as described you will be fully refunded. From the moment the payment is secured by eBay the shipping process will begin and it will arrive at your address in about max. 3 working days. You will also receive all the documents including the title and a Bill of Sale. Also the car will arrive with all the documentation’s required for registration and the keys. I will send you all the papers and documents (clear title, bills of sale, car’s manual) to prove the ownership and to be able to register it with no problem. The clear title and the bill of sale will be both signed so you can become owner of the car on spot.The cargo is insured so if the car is damaged during the shipping you will also be refunded.

    Please follow their instructions exactly and make the payment. Immediately after they confirm me that they hold your payment, I will proceed with shipping the car to you. You will be contacted two days before arrival to set up the shipping arrangements. As soon as ebay confirms me that payment has been made, I will start the shipping process and you will have the car there in 3 days. Please get back to me when ebay contacts you.

    If you decide on buying the car, I want the deal closed through eBay. Let me tell you how this works: you will make the payment to eBay and they will hold the money until you receive the car. ONLY AFTER you receive the car and you inspect it, ebay will release the payment to me, this way we`ll be both protected. I am a sergeant in the US Army and I was detached in Madrid, Spain. One month ago, my wife moved here with me and brought the car with her, but now we have to sell it back in the United States, because we can’t drive it here. We can`t register it here because of the US specs and everything, and registering here, in Europe, will take forever. European reguations are awful here.My final price for the car is $1,300 . If you will take this price, I am willing to handle the shipping myself, no cost for you. The car will be shipped to the US by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me or you anything.

    Just got this e-mail, please see if you can get the domain name looked into and removed so other people can’t fall for this idiot’s scam. It is funny how unoriginal he is with every new scam, at least be creative and write a new story, but I guess scammer scum doesn’t have a creative side.

    Mike, given the info you submitted, the criminal is simply using a free Hotmail/Live.com email address. It would be a good idea to forward the entire email (with headers) to report_spam@hotmail.com. Yes, I know it says spam, but it is the only abuse reporting address I found in a cursory search.

    hes at is still i recieved this email earlier this week luckily i did my research. im still messing with him today dragging him on and on, the email is identical to the ones most of you have gotten.

    Hello,
    I`m Sgt. David Damrell. You have to know that the 2001 Lexus IS300 I am selling is 100% working and great looking, no flaws or dents, no scratches or any kind of damage. The title is clear. It has 95,499 miles. The VIN# is JTHBD182610020519. This vehicle engine runs very, very smooth. No electrical problems on this beauty. This detailed vehicle makes the exterior looks like it just came off the assembly line.
    Options:
    Air Conditioning Climate Control System Telescoping Steering Wheel Cruise Control Tilt Steering Wheel Tachometer
    Keyless Entry Anti-Lock Brakes Driver’s Air Bag Passenger Air Bag Side Air Bags Intermittent Wipers Rear Defogger

    Here are the pics of the car :

    (if the above link does not work copy and paste it into a new web browser window)

    As I know that my current situation is pretty special I want the deal closed only through eBay’s Buyer Protection Program in order for you to be 100% protected. You will make the payment to eBay and they will hold the money until you receive the car. ONLY AFTER you receive the car and inspect it (for 10 days) eBay will release the payment to me; in this way we are both protected. Anyway i am sure that if you won`t be satisfied with the car i will surely find another buyer in your area and there will be no need for you to ship the car back.

    I am located in London, United Kingdom and I was sent here to improve the military relationships between our country and United Kingdom. One month ago, my wife moved here with me and brought the car with her, but now we have to sell it back in the United States because In order to be able to register this car here, I would have to pay very high import/custom taxes. My final price on it is $ 1400. If you will take it for this price, I am willing to handle the shipping. It will be shipped from here by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me anything. You will get it to the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked forward to your place. You will receive the car in about 4 days. Please get back to me asap if you decide to buy, and include in your e-mail your full name and address where you want it shipped so I can start the deal with eBay. You will receive all the transaction payment and shipping details from them.

    Thank you, and have a nice day,

ONLY AFTER you receive the car and you inspect it, ebay will release the payment to me, this way we`ll be both protected. I am a sergeant in the US Army and I was detached in Madrid, Spain. One month ago, my wife moved here with me and brought the car with her, but now we have to sell it back in the United States, because we can’t drive it here. We can`t register it here because of the US specs and everything, and registering here, in Europe, will take forever. European reguations are awful here.My final price for the car is $1,500 . If you will take this price, I am willing to handle the shipping myself, no cost for you. The car will be shipped to the US by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me or you anything. The car will be shipped to the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked to your place. From the moment the payment is secured by eBay, the shipping process will begin and you will have the car shipped at your house in no more than 3 days. Please get back to me asap if you decide to buy, and include in your e-mail your full name and address where you want the car shipped so I can start the deal with eBay. You will receive all the payment instructions and shipping details from them.

    Megan, as I said in my first email the car is currently located in Madrid, Spain. It will be shipped from here by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me anything. You will get it to the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked forward to your place. Shipping will be done door-to-door, to your exact location, so you will not have to pick the car up yourself.

    The price for the car is $1,500 USD. This price includes all the shipping taxes and fees. Ebay will hold the funds until you receive and accept the car.I will have access to the funds only after you test and inspect the car (you will have 3 days to do that) and in case somethins goes wrong or the car is not as described you will be fully refunded. From the moment the payment is secured by eBay the shipping process will begin and it will arrive at your address in about max. 3 working days. You will also receive all the documents including the title and a Bill of Sale. Also the car will arrive with all the documentation’s required for registration and the keys. I will send you all the papers and documents (clear title, bills of sale, car’s manual) to prove the ownership and to be able to register it with no problem. The clear title and the bill of sale will be both signed so you can become owner of the car on spot.The cargo is insured so if the car is damaged during the shipping you will also be refunded.
    Please reply with your full name and address, and I will start the process with Ebay. You will receive all the transaction details from them.

    Meagan, that is great news. As soon as ebay confirms me that payment has been made, I will start the shipping process. I am looking forward to hearing from you after you make the payment.

    Thank you and all the best!

    this what he sent me!!!

    Hello and sorry for my delay,
    I’m SSgt. Scott Reid. My 2005 Civic DX Sedan is in perfect working condition. This engine runs very, very smooth. No electrical problems on this beauty.
    All the options function accordingly. This detailed vehicle makes the exterior looks like it just came off the assembly line.

    The car has under 53k original miles. VIN Number: 1HGES16315L024256, Engine: 1.7L L4 PFI SOHC 16V, Transmission: Automatic, Title: Clean/Clear; Comfort & Convenience Options: manual seats, cruise control, A/C with climate control, dual front airbag, AM/FM/CD stereo system, tilt steering wheel and the list goes on! All the options function accordingly!

    Here are hosted a lot of pics of the car (Carfax report attached at the end of the photo album) :
    http://s1136.photobucket.com/albums/n483/civ05dx/?start=all

    As I know that my current situation is pretty special I want the deal closed only through eBay’s Buyer Protection Program in order for us to be 100% protected. You will make the payment to eBay and they will hold the money until you receive the car. ONLY AFTER you receive the car and you inspect it(for 15 days) eBay will release the payment to me; in this way we are both protected. Anyway I am sure that if you won’t be satisfied with the car I will surely find another buyer in your area and there will be no need for you to ship the car back.
    I am located in Madrid, Spain and I was sent here to train with their troops and improve the military relationships between USA and Spain. One month ago, my wife moved here with me and wanted to register the car here, but now we have to sell it back in the US because we can’t register it here; it has US specs and everything and registering it here in Europe will take for ever.

    My final price is US $1,500 USD. If you will take it for this price, I am willing to handle the shipping. It will be shipped from here by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me anything. You will get it to the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked forward to your place. It will be delivered directly to your place immediately after ebay will confirm the payment was secured in their trust and safety managed accounts. You will receive the car in about 3 days. Please get back to me asap if you decide to buy, and include in your e-mail your full name and address where you want it shipped so I can start the deal with eBay. You will receive all the transaction payment and shipping details from them.

    This might be similar to a guy trying to purchase something from us on Craigs List. He wanted to buy our item without speaking to us on the phone and was phishing us for our address and information.

    His name was:

  121. Chief said, on December 7, 2010 at 9:09 am

    B,
    In my experience, he was not phishing for personal info. He would typically send you a (bogus) cashiers check for more than the amount of the item, and subequently ask you to ship the item to him and send the “excess” amount to him via Western Union. Results? Item = gone. Cashier’s check? Bounced and you must pay your bank back.

    I have toyed with these guys [seven years ago] and simply told them, “I am not a bank. I don’t cash checks and send money to people.”

    I would have loved to Call you and Inspect myself but due to my health, just got back from Afghanistan and I am on bed and can’t do much due to doctor prescription about the nature of my health but i have a Shipper who will handle that and i will be making your payment ASAP through certified check. I will handle the shipment myself. The check will get to you in 2-3 days via Post-Office and when you received the check you can then get the check cashed at your Bank or have it Deposited, I will wait for you to confirm and clear the check as I am in no rush to pick it up.

    The payment will be in excess with the trust that i have in you, so that you can deduct your own due and send the remaining fund that is for the pick up transportation to my shipper after you must have confirmed and cashed the check. We will both wait till you clear the Check at your Bank and when it is done, the Shipper’s fund will be deducted from it and send to them via (WESTERNUNION), the money will be used by them for the pick-up and all necessary things needed by them.
    All the information needed from you for the check procedure is as follows :
    1 : Your name ( the name that will be on the check)
    2 : Your contact address ( Your home address that the check will be posted to)
    3 : A valid phone number ( Your phone number that can be contacted you on for any updating)

I DIDN’T REALIZE TILL AFTER I SENT THE MONEY THAT EBAY ONLY DEALS WITH PAYPAL THEN I KNEW I WAS SCAMMED. I FEEL SO DUMB! I HOPE HE PAYS FOR WHAT HE’S DOIN TO INNOCENT PEOPLE.

    Sharey, I’m sorry these criminals took your money. They are professionals and prey upon the honesty in our culture. Be sure to report this to your local police and http://ic3.gov to aid the apprehension of these scammers.

    Luckily I found these sites before I went any further. I only asked for some information. He now goes by George Keats and says his lives in Madrid. I didn’t refuse his offer, so he will probably contact me again.

  139. Chief said, on February 26, 2011 at 1:03 pm

    E, if the scammer has any personal data on you, just drop him. If you want to check out his process, recontact him randomly from an anonymous email address. Be sure to include any email addresses you have for the criminal. It helps future potential victims find our warnings more readily.

    I just got one from George Keats, email address relunas@gmail.com. Luckily I googled before I sent him money and found this site. Unfortunately, I did send my personal info. I have reported it and sent him an email saying I found evidence indicating a scam. Will see if he responds…here are the emails.

    Jason, we have a deal! I forwarded your information to eBay. They will shortly contact you with all the transaction details.Also the car will arrive with all the documentation’s required for registration and the keys. I will send you all the papers and documents (clear title, bills of sale, car’s manual) to prove the ownership and to be able to register it with no problem. The clear title and the bill of sale will be both signed so you can become owner of the car on spot.
    Please follow their instructions exactly and make the payment. Immediately after they confirm me that they hold your payment, I will proceed with shipping the car to you. You will be contacted two days before arrival to set up the shipping arrangements. As soon as ebay confirms me that payment has been made, I will start the shipping process and you will have the car there in 3 days. Please get back to me when ebay contacts you.

    I am very interested in the car the only concern is how am I going to be able to inspect the car before the payment if I will not receive it until three days after the payment is locked. I understand you are a military sargeant but I just don’t want to lose my money if you understand. I am in need of a car and cannot afford to just lose money like that.

    Oscar, how much money do you have now? If you have around $1000, I would agree to send you the car and send me the rest after you have the car there.

    I have 1100 and I would like to get it checked out at a dealer close my house. I can put up 1000 and pay the remaining 800 by the end of this month.

    Oscar, I agree. Send me your full name and address so I can start the transaction with ebay. You pay the $1000 now, I will send you the car and pay the rest $800 at the end of the month. Please let me know if you agree.

    Thank you!

    I’m going to my bank tomarrow to put my money in because they close at five and then I’ll send you my name and address.

    One more question. Since I have only three days to inspect the car does this include the time it takes to ship it or does it commence once I recieve it? I dont want to just be getting the car and then my three day’s time to inspect the car is up.

    RE: Ebay will hold the funds until you receive and accept the car.I will have access to the funds only after you test and inspect the car (you will have 3 days to do that) and in case somethins goes wrong or the car is not as described you will be fully refunded.

    Hello,
    I`m SSgt. David Damrell. You have to know that the 2002 Nissan Altima 2.5 S Automatic I am selling is 100% working and great looking, no flaws or dents, no scratches or any kind of damage. The title is clear. It has 63,031 miles. The VIN# is 1N4AL11D42C108308. This vehicle engine runs very, very smooth. No electrical problems on this beauty. This detailed vehicle makes the exterior looks like it just came off the assembly line.

    As I know that my current situation is pretty special I want the deal closed only through eBay’s Buyer Protection Program in order for you to be 100% protected. You will make the payment to eBay and they will hold the money until you receive the car. ONLY AFTER you receive the car and inspect it (for 10 days) eBay will release the payment to me; in this way we are both protected. Anyway i am sure that if you won`t be satisfied with the car i will surely find another buyer in your area and there will be no need for you to ship the car back.
    I am located in London, United Kingdom and I was sent here to improve the military relationships between our country and UK. One month ago, my wife moved here with me and brought the car with her, but now we have to sell it back in the United States because In order to be able to register this car here, I would have to pay very high import/custom taxes. My final price on it is $ 1400. If you will take it for this price, I am willing to handle the shipping. It will be shipped from here by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me anything. You will get it to the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked forward to your place. You will receive the car in about 4 days. Please get back to me asap if you decide to buy, and include in your e-mail your full name and address where you want it shipped so I can start the deal with eBay.

    We just go scammed by the same guy mentioned above, David Damrell. He scammed us out of 1400. We had never done anything like this before. We did not realize ebay does not work with craigslist until it was too late. I hope they get thi s### before he drains more hard working people out of thier savings. Its hard enough to make ends meet without this.

    Melissa, I am sorry you lost your money to these guys. They make their living by telling lies. None of the emails he sent you were factual. Please report the crime via the steps I outline here. There is very little likelihood that you will ever see your money, but you can help law enforcement track them down by reporting.

    I DON’T KNOW IF HIS THE SAME ONE BUT AM GLAD THAT I FOUND THIS WEBSITE BECAUSE I WAS ABOUT TO MAKE THE DEAL WITH THIS GUY !!!!!!!!!

    LAST EMAIL-

    My full name is Scott Reid, I am 40 years old and was born in Decherd, TN. I graduated the ITT Technical Institute of Nashville TN, where I got my degree in Information Technology – Computer Network Systems. After graduation moved to Houston, TX and joined the US Air Forces where I was in charge with Network Maintenance Analysis for our base. In 2007 I was stationed in Afghanistan for 6 months. Since august 2009 I am stationed here in London with my unit and abou 2 months ago my wife moved to London so we can be together.

    I believe this is enough information as I am trying to do business not make friends. No offence, it’s just business. You have nothing to worry about this deal because it will be done in a secure way. The most important thing in all my activities, is that I have set a Purchase Protection Account for up to $50,000 and I assume you know what this means. I’m a serious seller and a fair trader and I prefer to deal only with a serious buyer. As soon as you send the money to the ebay agent, I will ship the car to you and after the inspection period I will have my money and you a very clean Honda Civic.

    For this deal to happen I’ll need your FULL NAME and COMPLETE SHIPPING ADDRESS so I can inform ebay about our agreement and they’ll make the necessary arrangements. After I’ll do this they will contact you in max 24 hours with further details on how to proceed. If you are really serious about this purchase please reply asap with the necessary info so we can move further with this deal. Thanks for your time and understanding.

    Sincerely,

    this Scott Reid has just tried to scam me with the same email…and i almost fell for it..wow…so happy i googled him and the address he gave me and vin#.

    HERE’S HIS EMAIL TO ME:

    Hello Heidi and sorry for my delay,
    I’m SSgt. Scott Reid. My 2005 Civic DX Sedan is in perfect working condition. This engine runs very, very smooth. No electrical problems on this beauty.
    All the options function accordingly. This detailed vehicle makes the exterior looks like it just came off the assembly line.

    The car has under 53k original miles. VIN Number: 1HGES16315L024256, Engine: 1.7L L4 PFI SOHC 16V, Transmission: Automatic, Title: Clean/Clear; Comfort & Convenience Options: manual seats, cruise control, A/C with climate control, dual front airbag, AM/FM/CD stereo system, tilt steering wheel and the list goes on! All the options function accordingly!

    Here are hosted a lot of pics of the car (Carfax report attached at the end of the photo album) :
    http://s1136.photobucket.com/albums/n483/civ05dx/?start=all

    As I know that my current situation is pretty special I want the deal closed only through eBay’s Buyer Protection Program in order for us to be 100% protected. You will make the payment to eBay and they will hold the money until you receive the car. ONLY AFTER you receive the car and you inspect it(for 15 days) eBay will release the payment to me; in this way we are both protected. Anyway I am sure that if you won’t be satisfied with the car I will surely find another buyer in your area and there will be no need for you to ship the car back.
    I am located in Madrid, Spain and I was sent here to train with their troops and improve the military relationships between USA and Spain. One month ago, my wife moved here with me and wanted to register the car here, but now we have to sell it back in the US because we can’t register it here; it has US specs and everything and registering it here in Europe will take for ever.

    My final price is US $1,500 USD. If you will take it for this price, I am willing to handle the shipping. It will be shipped from here by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me anything. You will get it to the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked forward to your place. It will be delivered directly to your place immediately after ebay will confirm the payment was secured in their trust and safety managed accounts. You will receive the car in about 3 days. Please get back to me asap if you decide to buy, and include in your e-mail your full name and address where you want it shipped so I can start the deal with eBay. You will receive all the transaction payment and shipping details from them.

    I was recently a victim of this scam. My seller’s name is SSgt. David Damrell. He said that he was recently stationed in the United Kingdom and he was selling a 2002 Nissan Altima. I was scammed out of $1400. I have been reading articles about this seller and found out that he has been doing this for years. If someone comes across anyone using these same lies about these cars call local FBI and go to http://www.ic3.gov to file the conplaint. This will help catch these crooks.

    He scammed on the the exact same day. You should go to http://www.ic3.gov and file the complaint on there. I have talked with FBI agents and they said this is how he will get caught. It was my first time doing it too. I am a college student and I saved all that money for that car.

    I dont know if this is a real person or not.

    Hello and thank you for your interest in my 2006 Nissan Maxima SE. I must tell you that the car is in perfect working condition.This is a 1 owner (non smoker) vehicle that has 65,600 original miles. The maxima is FULLY LOADED with all the available options. This maxima has been impeccably maintained over the years and it shows that! The car has never been in any accidents or modified in any way. The exterior of the car is in pristine condition and the interior of the car is spotless. The interior is impeccable with no tears, no rips, no blemishes. The mechanics of the car work properly as they should. VIN Number is 1N4BA41E66C805036.

    Here are the pics of the car :

    https://picasaweb.google.com/112966093487913828119/2006NissanMaxima

    If you decide on buying the car, I want the deal closed through eBay. Let me tell you how this works: you will make the payment to eBay and they will hold the money until you receive the car. ONLY AFTER you receive the car and you inspect it, ebay will release the payment to me, this way we`ll be both protected. I am a sergeant in the US Army and I was detached in Madrid, Spain. One month ago, my wife moved here with me and brought the car with her, but now we have to sell it back in the United States, because we can’t drive it here. We can`t register it here because of the US specs and everything, and registering here, in Europe, will take forever. European reguations are awful here.My final price for the car is $1,800 . If you will take this price, I am willing to handle the shipping myself, no cost for you. The car will be shipped to the US by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me or you anything. The car will be shipped to the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked to your place. From the moment the payment is secured by eBay, the shipping process will begin and you will have the car shipped at your house in no more than 3 days. Please get back to me asap if you decide to buy, and include in your e-mail your full name and address where you want the car shipped so I can start the deal with eBay. You will receive all the payment instructions and shipping details from them.

    2003 Polaris Ranger 500 w/Plow/Blade and my final price is $1,800

    As we speak the ranger is already at the shipping company in Montana,
    ready to be shipped, the snow plow is included. I am located out of the
    city due to occupational obligations so unfortunately this means we can
    only make the deal through eBay .

    Since I presume you are not familiar with eBay’s Vehicle Purchase Protection
    Program, I have briefly described the eBay transaction steps below:

    1. Buyer, seller reach an agreement (price and delivery conditions)
    2. Buyer sends money to eBay.
    3. eBay confirms to seller that the amount has been received.
    4. Seller performs the required services (shipping, insurance).
    5. Buyer accepts delivery and informs eBay about the acceptance.
    6. eBay releases the money to seller.

    As you can see, you will receive the ranger BEFORE any money is released to
    me. You will get the chance to inspect it, test it and everything you
    like while your money is still safely held in eBay’s account. ONLY after you
    confirm to eBay that you agree with the ranger, they will release the money
    to me.

    If, for some reason, you disagree with the ranger (I assure you that is NOT
    going to happen since the ranger is as described it in the listing, the photos
    are real and recently taken and you’ll notice the ranger runs great from
    every aspect) it will be shipped back to me on my expense and eBay will
    send you your money back.

    If you wish to proceed further, I will need your complete name and address
    so I can start the transaction with eBay’s Vehicle Purchase Protection
    Program.

    Thanks IS THIS BULL SH#t??? PLEASE HELP

    I received this tonight after emailing http://tampa.craigslist.org/hil/ctd/2753797404.html relunas@gmail.com
    about maybe dropping a 0 off the price by accident.
    REALLY FUNNY that it took less than 1 min for this to show up in my box… I get them for roommate ads too… crap crap crap.

    Hello,
    I`m SSgt. Hellen Miller. You have to know that the 2003 Honda Accord EX 6 – Cyl Automatic. I am selling is 100% working and great looking, no flaws or dents, no scratches or any kind of damage. The title is clear. It has 46,749 miles. The VIN# is 1hgcm66803a050494. This vehicle engine runs very, very smooth. No electrical problems on this beauty. This detailed vehicle makes the exterior looks like it just came off the assembly line.

    Cruise Control Power Locks Power Windows Power Seats

    As I know that my current situation is pretty special I want the deal closed only through eBay’s Buyer Protection Program in order for you to be 100% protected. You will make the payment to eBay and they will hold the money until you receive the car. ONLY AFTER you receive the car and inspect it (for 10 days) eBay will release the payment to me; in this way we are both protected. Anyway i am sure that if you won`t be satisfied with the car i will surely find another buyer in your area and there will be no need for you to ship the car back.

    I am located in Madrid, Spain and I was sent here to improve the military relationships between USA and Spain. One months ago, my husband moved here with me and brought the car with him, but now we have to sell it back in the United States because we can’t register it here; it has US specs and everything, and registering it here in Europe will take for ever. My final price on it is US 1,500 $. If you will take it for this price, I am willing to handle the shipping. It will be shipped from here by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me anything. You will get it to the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked forward to your place. You will receive the car in about 3 days. Please get back to me asap if you decide to buy, and include in your e-mail your full name and address where you want it shipped so I can start the deal with eBay. You will receive all the transaction payment and shipping details from them.
    If you like, I can send you more pics of the car.

    Lacy,

    That, “SOMETHING TOLD ME TODAY TO GOOGLE THE NAME” was your good intuition. The criminal relies on his low price to cause us to ignore our gut instincts in cases like this. We’re glad you recognized the inconsistencies and did the search. Now … your job is to educate your friends and family on how these criminals work. An educated consumer is the best method of preventing this crime.
