    I was ready to buy the john deer tractor from Antonajudy@gmail.com. still waiting to hear from seller. I was even angry because i thought someone had had already purchased it. could i offer you a money gram for the service?

    Thanks so much

    Floyd

  2. Chief said, on January 26, 2010 at 7:14 pm

    Floyd,
    That is very kind of you. However, the greatest thing you could do for us is to help prevent the the next victim from losing his money. Spread the word to everyone you know that these types of offers are scams. Never send money to a stranger via Moneygram or Western Union. It is virtually untraceable and not recoverable.

    Now that you have an eagle eye with the ability to spot these scams, join the fight! If you are comfortable toying with criminals, post emails from them here on this site. Please understand that you must do it safely. If you do not know what that means, just ask. 🙂 Chief

  3. Daryl said, on January 27, 2010 at 10:04 am

    Thanks, my old man was looking at this tractor and was ready to buy it. I’m positive he would have never western union’ed any money, it’d be cash in hand, but still good to know. Thanks for posting this, I hope the scum that is doing this to people finds himself in a jail cell with a very large man looking for companionship.

  4. Chief said, on January 27, 2010 at 10:40 am

    Thanks for your comment, Daryl. The prices are just so good that many potential victims let their guard down. — Chief

    Thanks for the information. I would never would never buy a tractor site un-scene especial in my home town, but when the supposed seller referred me to eBay so I could buy it online, I went to search to see if I could find out where it was physically locatated so I could check it out. When I was unable to find it on EBay I Goggled it and I found this page. Thanks again for your information; you have saved me a lot of time. Communications with the alleged scammers is frustratingly vague as you can see in their below string.

    The tractor is already at a shipping company my brother in law works for. He promissed me he will deliver it at no cost in all the US cities while I`m out of town. I also list it on eBay for a secure transaction using their VPP (vehicle purchase protection) program. If you are still interested in buying the tractor I can give you the link to my auction. It`s a buy it now auction so you won`t have to bid. thank you for your time and God bless

    Thanks for the info

    Jason, thanks for dropping in. We gladly accept your thanks as our only form of payment. However, your intuition led you to research the scammer, so you have to give yourself partial credit anyway! Spread the word to your friends and family regarding the techniques of these criminals. — Chief

  15. Brian said, on February 2, 2010 at 1:55 pm

    I knew something wasn’t right here. My first inquiry was responded to with this:

    sorry for my delay in response. the john deere tractor is still for sale. it has no liens or other major problems. also i`m not interested in any kind of trade

    Then, I asked if I could drive down to see it, here is what she replied:

    The tractor is already at a shipping company my brother in law works for. He promissed me he will deliver it at no cost in all the US cities while I`m out of town. I also list it on eBay for a secure transaction using their VPP (vehicle purchase protection) program. If you are still interested in buying the tractor at a fixed price ($4,200) pls reply me with:
    Your name:
    Address:
    Phone #:

    EBay will send you an invoice ASAP with the details on how to complete this transaction.
    God bless you and your familly

    I have sent her another email asking about specifics of the tractor, we’ll see what she responds with this time.

  17. Chief said, on February 2, 2010 at 10:42 pm

    Larry, we, too am frustrated that we don’t seem to be making much progress toward apprehending these crooks. Continued reporting and documenting the schemes of the criminals is the path we are taking now. When we can find the channel in law enforcement that is willing to go the distance with these cases we’ll be on our way to clamping down on the scammers.

    Judy Jackass … we like your sense of humor, sir! Thanks for dropping by. — Chief

  19. Phil said, on February 3, 2010 at 7:29 pm

    I found this tractor in multiple states and when I checked on it further from the false ebay site the location given to me was in York county, PA. I have a friend that deals within ebay and that is how I found this site. The email address given to me is the same as the last reply. This is the last communication that was sent to me—–(here is it: http://is.gd/7vHX5
    you will be redirected to my auct.
    after you purchase it you will also receive an invoice on how to complete the transaction)

    Scott, if you have emails from Judy or her fake ebay company, I encourage you to file a report with http://ic3.gov. One does not have to endure fraud to file a report. Evidence of attempted fraud is an acceptable reason to file a complaint.

    This appears to be the same scammer that is detailed above. Here is the email address he is using now. After seeing the posting on craigslist – northwest kansas and receiving this email response, when all I asked was the location of the tractor I became very suspicious, checked it out and found the information on this site. I have notified craigslist of the scam, hopefully they will act on the information.

    I am sorry for my delay in response, but currently I`m working on a drilling
    rig in the Gulf of Mexico and I have been very busy with my work. Anyway,
    thank you for your interest in buying the tractor. The total price for my
    John Deere Compact Tractor Mower Loader Backhoe is $2,100.The package
    includes all attachments and shipping cost. I wanted to keep the tractor but
    I left my farm for a better job in Gulf of Mexico, so I decided to sell it.
    The tractor is in showroom condition, 262 hrs, 21 hp, 4WD.

    So if you are interested please email me back so I can explain you how the
    transaction will work.
