    My mom was at Western Union trying to send money to this Josh Kemble and he asked her to go home and check it out. Thank God she did because I found this and she chatted with eBay! We nearly lost $2900 TODAY!!!!! What kind of person messes with innocent people like this. Let’s get him caught so he can never do this to anyone else ever again!

    I am grateful that Western Union is bellying up to the bar regarding scammers. Hats off to that clerk! I can offer you no hope that he will be caught, but we can discourage him and make it difficult to conduct his criminal business.

    Thanks for the post. — Chief

    WOW!!!!!! unbelievable. Its so crazy because i got the very same email posted in this page for some Althea Daniel for the same car and price and everything. The funny part is that I almost believed it until the whole “invoice” thing said the transaction required the money to be “money gramed”. Now I found this fishy right off the bat because the car being sold was posted on craigslist and they are now warning about scams like these with the money grams. Them my bf looked it up and found your page. Like the comment before someone needs to kick this guy(s)/girl(s) A** for doing this because im sure that other people older and less knowledgeable about horrible people like this have already fallen prey. I know I almost did and im 23. ^.^”

    I got taken on Monday for 2800.00, my dumb luck. I was traveling and conducting the business on my phone. If anyone sees something from Bill Turnell or Kenneth Caselberry disregard it. I have the resources to track these guys, which is probaly one in the same, and I will find them.
