Clean carpets, seats, roof, boot and plastics.Both remote keys are present and they are working, no electrical issues.I do have the title , clear, under my name.The truck has 49,439 miles, year 2003 and VIN#1GCHK29G43E308322.The truck is in Great Falls,MT and in case it gets sold I will take care of shipping.

    I am going to try to report him. Or her who ever it is. also be ware of a scammer named Jessica Forker. I found out she is a bad one too.
    Mike

  5. Chief said, on July 29, 2010 at 8:08 am

    Mike – thanks for commenting. The search engines pick up all the text and will help someone in the future from being defrauded.

    Anthony Reda and Jessica Forker are definitely the two hot names among scammers. Most of the search engine hits to this site yesterday were due to their activity.

    On another note, you can disrupt Anthony’s routine a bit by reporting the photobucket album. Send Anthony’s entire email (with headers) to abuse[at]photobucket.com and normally, they will kill it within 1/2 day.

    I report quite a few scammers to http://www.ic3.gov/ . I have never received any personalized response that indicates my reports are useless or that they are beneficial, but I will continue reporting until someone tells me to stop.

    Are you looking for coffee gifts? We can tell you more about the coffee gifts including coffee machines and coffee pods.

  7. Chief said, on July 29, 2010 at 1:40 pm

    Coffee gifts? Sure, I always come to a scam-fighting site to discover new and different types of coffee to sip while I am viewing the spam that gets posted. What is a coffee pod? Is it anything like an IPOD? And why does your spam originate from a server in China?

    Ok. What base are you at. I can put the total in a certified check from the bank and leave it at the PO on the.
    You can just drop the keys with your platoon clerk. They are very flexible and understanding for service men. Since I am in AK there is no need to spend half of your asking price in transportation.

    Michael, if he is using hotmail, his email headers will reveal the source IP. I’ll wager a Big Mac that he used an AOL connection — real or tunneled. AOL has never, never, never responded to an abuse report of mine. What might be of benefit?

    1. file an attempted fraud complaint at http://ic3.gov.
    2. bait the scammer to waste his time and learn if he has a fake escrow web site, phone number, etc.
    3. disable his web domain & phone number through abuse reports to providers.

    Your mileage may vary. The above is what has worked for me.

    I did report him every where.
    AND had some “fun” with him.
    Finally he responded that the car is “sold”.

    Two new ones, this doesn’t stop!!!

    2005 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, Automatic, 49,250 miles – $2,800

    Hi,
    First of all I want to thank you for your interest for my car. I sell it at this price ($ 2,800) because i just finished the divorce with my husband. The divorce has finished 6 months ago and the car is mine now. After the divorce I was forced to buy a new house. Following the financial crisis I can’t afford to pay the bank and I decided to sell the car. This car is in excellent working condition, no scratches, flaws or any kind of damage, slightly used, in 100% working and looking condition and comes with a clear title.
    From the beginning you have to know that for the payment I request only secure pay, I prefer the payment to be done using eBay services (I will receive the payment only after you receive and inspect the car and only if you agree to buy it).
    We will use a safe payment method because I am affiliated at eBay and I have a purchase protection account. The final price that I want for this car is $2,800. I will pay for shipping and handling.
    If you are interested in buying it please provide me your full name and address so I can initiate the deal through eBay.
    I will wait your answer (if you are interested to buy) very soon.
    Thank you,
    Susan Thompson

    I am so glad you started this thread here.

    Unbelievable.

    And if you look at the flaws in their English, you can tell, they are from the East, I mean Eastern Europe, that’s where the people are the worst when it comes to theft and fraud.

    E.g. Romania……

    I can not see the headers, using 2010 Outlook. I remember, in older email programs, I was able to see the whole ip history??
    I can forward the original emails to you, if you want, or please tell me how to see the headers, I don’t know with Outlook 2010 (View Source gives me only html source code of the email text)

    Thanks for your site on scammers, I’m in East Texas and wrote about a nice 2003 chevy truck. It turned out to be in Springfield, Ill. You have many similar scams on your site. I smelled a rat and googled it and found you. Thanks for your efforts to fight fraud.

    This is the response I got from this person.

    Hi,
    At this moment I am in a military base getting ready for Afghanistan. This mean that I do a special training program and I am not allowed to get out of the unit or give calls whenever I want.The truck is already at the shipping company in Great Falls,MT sealed and ready for the shipping.The shipping can’t be a problem because I can do it at no cost for you. You will receive the truck along with all the documents including title, bill of sale, full service records and more .Because it is a large transaction we will complete the deal only using an authorized third party like eBay, using their Business Purchase Protection Program.The payment will be handling by eBay and you will benefit of 5 days inspection period (test drive) and the option to accept or reject the truck on my expense. If you are still interested just send me your full name and shipping address. I will forward your info and they will notify you about our deal.

    Regards!!

    Eric,

    I didn’t realize you were in the military. I an a Technical Sergeant(E-6) in the USAF. What unit are you in? This truck was listed in California, I would want my dad who lives in central Cali to look at it before buying it sight unseen. I am currently in Portugal, so I can’t look at it for myself.

    Derrick, yes the seller is a scammer. The extra data is an attempt at hash-busting, or overcoming Craigslists filters. The names and addresses are meaningless. I only included the two I researched. Cities do not exist / zipcode doesn’t match / phone numbers out of region, etc.

    The punks are professional thieves. See this article if you’re interested in the methods used by these scammers.

    How are these folks getting Ebay to open accounts for them to receive payments if the vehicle is not listed on Ebay for sale? I think that I have just repsonded to an ad for a vehicle that is a scam. It’s on Craigs List, Albany GA. But, they vehicle is in Indiana.

  49. Chief said, on December 7, 2011 at 8:02 pm

    Debbie,

    These criminals do not use Ebay accounts. They simply masquerade as ebay with some using very believable graphics and emails. Ebay does not offer escrow services for sales on Craigslist.
