    2007 John Deere Gator for sale posted 2/7/2012 using email Corresponded with subject and person stated she’s a single mom, just needing to sell it quickly. Asked for name, phone, email, and address to register sale with Ebay. Sounded fishy and started looking into it. Looks like a scam.

    Good eye, Jade. Ebay does not provide such a service for items purchased via Craigslist, Oodle, Horseclicks, and the like. The criminals reuse the story of a single divorced mother over and over. Here is the first in a series of emails with such a scammer offering a motorhome. The criminals use very believable Ebay graphics such as the one show in this scam.

    The scammers not only post their ads in the “Tickets” section of CL instead of “Cars,” they are fond of using the Chilean image host Also, they use a lot of hashbusting gibberish text, usually in tiny fonts or barely visible colors.

  8. Chief said, on February 10, 2012 at 2:55 pm

    Yea, you’d thing Craigslist could detect the excessive string of html tags:
    small small small small small small small small
    and delete the ads. But then again, I don’t expect much of anything out of Craigslist.

    Just wanted to thank this website and let you know that the scammer you have listed here as is also working under the email

    She advertised a truck in Craigslist yesterday using the and then responded to my inquirey usin the other email address it is dispicable in that she said her husband died in Iraq 3 months ago and that she needed the money, etc. .see below…


    Thank you for your inquiry regarding my truck. It is in perfect condition, there’s not even a scratch or any dents on it. Everything about it is in perfect condition. I have clear title for it, no liens or loans. The truck is priced to sell quickly and the final price that I’m asking for it is $3,000 including shipping and handling costs. My husband died in Iraq 3 months ago and me and my daughter decided to sell the house and move to my sister’s. The truck reminds us very much of my husband but we finally understood that we have to move on with our lives. Although my husband will have his place in our hearts forever. I can’t afford to take days off my work for this sale so i’m trying to sell it online. If you are really interested in purchasing the truck please reply to this email and i will provide further instructions regarding payment and delivery.


    Laura Parker

    P.S.: Below you will find a full description and the pictures i have taken for this sale. Please take a closer look before you decide.

    They even provided me with the VIN that i requested!! The scammer stated that it is being held at Google’s Shipping Center in Pittsburgh but that “it cannot be picked up locally because it is registered with Google’s Checkout Protection Program.” It is classic to what you site describes!

    On Sun, Feb 12, 2012 at 7:21 PM, Sharon wrote: Laura I am interested in your truck possibly for my father. Where are you located I’m down the shore. Also, can you send the VIN. Thanks.

    Here is her response –

    VIN: 1ftrx18lx2nc01157 Please take a few moments and read my email carefully, I know it’s quite long, but I think it’s important that you understand everything before you commit to purchase. I have to let you know that i listed all over US because shipping is included in the price. The truck is at Google’s shipping center in Pittsburg, PA and from there it will be shipped to my buyer’s address. I have registered the truck with Google Checkout Protection Program so a local pick-up is not an option.This transaction is covered by Google Checkout’s purchase protection program up to $20,000 and if something goes wrong in this transaction you will be fully refunded. In the invoice you will have the details on how to make a refundable payment and shipping back the truck will be my concern. I strongly assure you it will not be the case for a refund. I have used Google Checkout in the past and all my transactions ended successfully. You pay to Google Checkout and they will transfer the funds to me only after you get the truck. The financial part of our transaction is going through Google Checkout and here are the steps: – I need your full name, shipping address and phone#; – I will forward this information to Google Checkout purchase protection department and they will start our transaction; – Google Checkout sends you the invoice with payment details for our transaction; – after they secure the payment, they will notify me and I will start shipping. Shipping will take no more than 5 days (2 days to prepare the shipping and 3 days for the shipping depending on your location). – after you receive the truck you will have another 5 days to inspect it. – when the inspection period ends, Google Checkout contacts you and if there are any issues with the truck, they will fully refund you within 3 business days and the truck will be shipped back at my expense. If all is good with the truck, which I’m sure it will be, they will assist you with the title transfer and release the payment to me. I apologize if it seems like I’m pushing on this deal but I really want to be sure that everything is clarified before any further steps. I’m a serious seller and I prefer to deal with a serious buyer. If you agree with these terms, please send me your full name, shipping address and phone number, in order to start the transaction! Google Checkout will send you important guidelines and instructions regarding the protection program and payment instructions. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    Sharon, thanks for the data. Note that beyond the VIN, the email is a template, or boilerplate that could be used in any truck scam on the planet.

    She is still running the scam on craigslist. I was wondering if it was a scam, so I ran her email address and everything. It is very convincing scam. I issue everyone to stay away from this one. I just wish there was a way to stop these scams. But they continue to go on with it. How can they do this?? Maybe someday they will catch these people.

  13. sharon said, on March 7, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    I emailed Craigslist about it and they were VERY ‘hands off’ about the whole thing telling me to report it other agencies! It was obvious to me that they wanted no part in policing their own site for scammers. Even though the scammer told me she advertised in many cities on Craigslist. They should be able to easily see the pattern but apparently don’t want to get involved.

  14. Chief said, on March 8, 2012 at 8:15 am

    I concur with all your statements. In my email inbox, there are at least 20 of their canned messages that begin,

    Thanks for contacting craigslist. See below for suggested further actions
    that may be relevant to the situation you are emailing about.

    ** CRIME REPORT *****************************************

    Report suspected criminal activity to law enforcement. Flag criminally
    suspicious postings using the “prohibited” link.

    This is their standard “boilerplate” reply to abuse reports. Interestingly, I received my first (ever — in 4 years of reporting abuse) personal replay from Craigslist just hours prior to your comment. However, the tone of the email was very similar to what one would hear from the first person he talks to when he calls the helpdesk at his cell phone, internet, or satellite provider. In other words, I do not anticipate any action being taken because of our correspondence.
