Scammer selling a stove on Craigslist – Viking Stove – $2600
I reported the abuse to Craigslist since the criminal posted the ad over 200 times. Here is the scammer’s reply to my initial inquiry:
This is a perfect viking range no damage, no scratches or dents, no hidden defects period, it’s in immaculate condition, never used, source: GAS and can be converted to propane, Dual Fuel.
Dual Fuel, Stainless Steel, 4 Sealed Burners and can be converted to 6 burners + griddle.
Right: 4.1 Cubic Ft
Left: 2.5 Cubic ft
Overall dimensions: 47-7/8″W x 27-1/8″D x 33-1/2″.
The price i asked for is $2.600.00. The stove is already packed and ready for ship to your location.
Here is the scammer’s second email to me:
Hello, I really need to sell it asap because I got a 36″ ’cause i haven’t space for a 48 and I don`t need it anymore, it was my wife’s gift. The stove is already at the shipping company warehouse in Salem/Oregon sealed and ready to be shipped. I have a contract with eBay so this deal must go through them. According with eBay you have 7 days from the time you receive the stove to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not. The shipping will be on my expense directly at your home address.If you are a real buyer and if you want to move forward with this transaction please forward me your further details so i can open the case with them:
-your full name
After the case is opened they will contact you with all information about the shipping and payment. Looking forward to hear from you,
