    Yes, Sarah, he is a scammer. Thanks for joining the fight! It would also be good idea to forward the entire email (with headers) to abuse at photobucket.com and they will close the scammer’s album. Yes, he’ll create another, but we need him doing administrative tasks rather than scamming.

  3. Cheryl said, on April 20, 2010 at 10:57 am

    Yes, these guys truly are scammers! Sgt. Carlos Arellanos took us for $2935 on a 2003 Honda Accord Lx. This was to be my sons birthday present. We never suspected anyone in the military would do this so we bought into the whole thing. I never saw the ad on Craigslist either. My son did and emailed it to me through another friend. I never saw the warnings on Craigslist about shipping car either. Boy, did I learn the hard way. Please be careful and don’t buy a vehicle unless you physically see it.

  4. Chief said, on April 20, 2010 at 11:22 am

    Chery, I am so sorry these guys took your money. They play on the honesty present in our culture and victimize dozens of individuals each day. These criminals are professionals and tell a very believable story. I ask you to please report it via any method you can get your hands on — specifically the Internet Fraud Complaint Center and the FTC as seen in our page here.

    Hey guys, thanks for the posts..you just saved me $2920!!! The guy is now using a ltusarmy42@gmail.com account. Where he messed up at is that he is posing as a Lieutenant and since I am a Captain in the Army…well let’s just say that I started looking him up ( LT Matthew Horn) and he doesn’t check out. When I asked him for DSN information and where he was stationed, he gave me the ficticious DSN and commerical number. I copy and pasted the DSN information and this website came up. Keep up the good work!!!

    hey guys this guy is on craigslist again.. i just sent him my info but have not submitted any money can he still mess with my identity or something???

  7. Chief said, on June 23, 2010 at 8:32 am

    Rich, I would not worry. This class of criminal wants easy cash — not your identity. Either ignore him or tell him you bought another car and he will go away.

    Here’s what I got from the scammer

    Here are the pics of the car: http://s996.photobucket.com/albums/af86/toyotaphotos/ . The price for the car is $1500 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 5 days to do that) and in case something goes wrong or the car is not as advertised you will be fully refunded. Anyway i am sure if you won’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. Ebay will guarantee for that. From the moment the payment is secured by eBay the shipping process will begin and i\xt 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.
    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.

    Thanks and keep in touch

    John, thanks for posting the text. Also, if you forward the email (with headers) to abuse[at]photobucket.com, they’ll close the criminal’s album. Sure, he’ll create another, but you will have temporarily redirected his energies away from scamming another victim. — Chief

    Hi, he recently put an add on craiglist for an 03 honda accord and when I saw the pics I was skeptical. Then once I wmailed him and got a response so detailed and so quickly and saw how the pics all looked like they were straight from a dealership I knew something was fishy so I googled his email address and this came up. Thank you so much for putting this info on here. He is using the email address kozmot@live.com.

    This is the email I received:
    Hello and sorry for my delay,
    The 2003 Honda Acord EX is in perfect working condition.This detailed vehicle makes the exterior look like it just came off the assembly line.The car has only 81,163 original miles. Vin #: 1HGCM56623A099981. 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. The transmission has been serviced. This car needs nothing but a new driver.

    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 :
    this is the link: http://picasaweb.google.com/116118815374352399175/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.

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 1,600 $. 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.

  21. Revs said, on September 7, 2010 at 9:54 pm

    I am lucky, I got a little leary about this guy, and started snooping. He was too pushy for me, wanting my info way too fast. I like the one slip up.. pictures show a car with the supposed same miles… with leather interior. The only problem was, in the Craigslist listing, it stated a cloth interior… that was the mistake I caught…

    If this guy and his bimbo wife are really in the military, I wish that they would get caught and let the military put him away….

    Hope more people see these posts and don’t get burned….

  22. Chief said, on September 8, 2010 at 9:45 am

    Revs, he’s not in the military. Just browse around the blog site … you’ll find dozens and dozens of cases where these criminals portray U.S. Military personnel. This script is in use by hundreds of scammers. — Chief

  25. Almost scammed said, on September 16, 2010 at 11:31 am

    We saw a similar add on Craigslist in Raleigh North Carolina. I got almost the exact same emailed response, only he’s “in Spain”. The response is what made me suspicious – really?! do you thinkt he US Military is going to ship (by AIR) a POV in 3 to 4 days from Spain to NC! Anyone with any experience in or around the military wouldn’t believe that one!

    Still, thanks for updating this blog so I could get confirmation of my suspicions!

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 1,450 $. 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.

    Ashley,
    My personal opinion is that the only way we can stop “him” is to educate the public on how these criminals work. “James and Samantha” are probably in Eastern Europe. It takes a grand cooperative effort to overcome all the legalities and language barriers and apprehend these fellows.

    THIS IS A SCAM AS WELL!!! THE PERSON SENT THE WRONG EMAIL ABOUT A CAR I NEVER ASKED ABOUT WITH THE SAME EXCUSES AND EBAY IDEAS!!! WHEN I POINTED IT OUT…NO RESPONSE…

    Thank you for being interested in buying my 2007 Cadillac Escalade, Automatic Transmission, 43 500 MILES, VIN 1GYFK63897R392730. It is in EXCELLENT condition; no scratches and no dents; the interior is clean; it has never been involved in an accident; the title is clear.

    I have recently moved to Portugal. I was hoping to take my car here but when I found out how much shipping and registration would be I’ve changed my mind. As I’m unable to travel in the near future and I don’t have anyone in the US to help me with the sale I decided to make this transaction through eBay. I believe this protects both buyer and seller and it’s the right way to do this.

    The price is $8,000. If you decide to buy this car or need further information please get back to me as soon as possible.

    Thank you,
    Hailey

    This woman made up a story that her son died in Iraq! How sad is that. I got another email in reguards to another car I asked about and it was the SAME exact story and that is how I figured out that it was a scam! I reported both emails

    Hello,
    My name is Anderson Barbara. Thanks for being interested in buying my 2001 BMW 325i. The car is in perfect condition , with no need for additional repairs, no scratches, dings, special marks whatsoever, never been involved in any accidents. The interior looks great (NO SMOKING). It has 131,656, manual transmission , 6 Cylinder 2.5L engine size , gasoline , rear wheel drive ,gray exterior and interior . I have a clear and clean title for it , no liens or loans ready to be signed and notarized on your name … The price is $1,700.00 if you want to buy it today or tomorrow.
    I’m selling my son’s car, who died in Iraq two months ago and I want to get rid of it asap because the sight of it makes me think of him often and often and the pain is too great . Put yourself in my shoes and you’ll do the same (selling the car of your dead son, no offense)

    http://s1203.photobucket.com/albums/bb396/2001_BMW_3-Series_325i/?albumview=slideshow

    I can provide VIN # to check on your own, also I can send you more details too . Just let me know if you are still interested and where are you located .
    Thank you,
    Barbara

    Yes they are definitely scammers. This guy was Sgt. Edgar McCrae selling a 2003 Honda Accord EX from craigslist and used the gmail accnt discut3@gmail.com. My husband and I are so blessed! We actually made the payment of $2014 (sent it via western union) and afterwards something just didn’t seem right. I contact eBay Motors for a confirmation and the representative told me that this is has happened many times is that it is a scam. I immediately contacted western union and thankfully the scammer didn’t pick up the money yet. They disable the receiver from getting the money and I recieved all of our money back the same day! We learned our lesson to never purchase a vehicle that we can’t see, touch, text-drive, whatever! We were blessed b/c the if they would’ve gotten the money we would’ve been screwed big time..

    I`m SSgt. Susan Jordan. You have to know that the 2003 Honda Accord EX-L, 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 62,533 miles. The VIN# is 1HGCM66553A001913. This vehicle engine runs 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 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.

    Respectfully,

    I thought this looked like a fishy deal..did a search on the web and found this page with the same exact scam with different locations. Thanks for having this page to validate the scam! PS. I wonder how many people have fallen for this? This person should be investigated by US government/FBI!

    Yes, conducting “peace maintenance” in Spain takes its toll on US servicemen & women. 😉 Thanks for posting. Be sure to forward the criminal’s email to abuse@photobucket.com and photobucket will close the album. Anything you can safely do to disrupt this “industry” is appreciated.

    Hello ,

    My name is Sarah and I am selling this 2003 Honda Accord EX-L Navigation because of my disability, being deaf and not able to drive it. It belonged to my husband, who passed away not long ago. The car is in perfect condition, I had an mechanic look over it before placing the ad. I do have the title, clear and is under my name. The car has about 91,956 miles on it, Automatic Transmission, Engine: 3.0L V6. As i stated in my ad the price is $2,000. I’ve recently move to Bismarck, ND, I have the car with me and i am able to ship it to you at no extra cost.
    Let me know if you are interested, email back.
    Regards !!

    P. S : You can view the pictures here: http://s1069.photobucket.com/albums/u461/2003-Honda-Accord-Navigation/

    My 2003 Honda Accord EX-L Navigation it’s still available, has 91,956 miles, automatic transmission, it’s in excellent condition, non smoker, no liens or loans, it has been very well maintained, with a clean title and no accident history. I have all the car’s manuals, 2 spare of keys, clean title, documents. I am selling it at this final price of $2,000 because unfortunately…my husband died 2 months ago (he had a heart attack) and it brings me bad memories and that’s the reason I want to sell it asap. Me, along with my daughter decided to sell the house so we moved to my brother in Fort Lauderdale, FL trying to start a new life…It’s so hard for me now, but…I know God will help us overcome those difficult moments! I want to use Google Checkout services for the safety of both of us, so if you’re interested in purchasing this vehicle just email me with your full name, your full shipping address including the zip code and phone number
