A New Twist From Craigslist Auto Scammers

Posted in database, scammer by Chief on January 4, 2010

I observed a new tactic today.  The scammer’s ad is a single jpg file:

The pic is linked (in the Craigslist ad) to:

2006 Honda Accord EX-L

The link may disappear … the abuse was reported to them

    I have photo’s of the lic. plate of the vehicle and the fake e-bay e-mails for the transaction I can forward if it helps with anyone trying to investigate just where and who Lt. Josh Kemble is

    Unfortunately, the pics are all stolen. The vehicle is real; it just happens to be owned by someone other than the scammer. The scammers pick up the photos from a variety of classified ad avenues across the internet.

    Was just looking at the Lexus IS 300, and found this web site. Is it possible to catch this fool?

    Nasty, I bookmarked a link [and then lost it] that described the known current efforts by U.S. law enforcement. The author stated that even if the organization conducted the extensive research necessary to find the very individual that perpetrated the crime, he is normally not within their jurisdiction — usually eastern Europe. Each case is treated as a singular case. Our “who do I contact page” includes the internet crime complaint center. I have not conducted enough research to determine the status of the complaint center’s involvement in the apprehension of this class of criminal.

    Short answer for the short term ==> NO!

    Thanks for dropping in. Feel free to paste the text of your scammer’s email in another comment. The search engines will pick it up and perhaps help another potential victim from losing his money.
