Well I just got a gext from this number...asking if I still had my rims from craigslist...luckly I found this website informing me of scams....thanks websters
I got several texts from this party on my Craigs List posting. Was going to send a check by Fedex and arrange a pickup. What a weird way to entertain yourself.
Same thing happened to us today. The guy said he would wait until the check had cleared until he sent his private shipping company. Sounded ligget for about a minute.
Your right to say that the law won't go after these criminals. . They could be shut down pretty quickly. The general public needs to demand more on this.
This may be a group of people. They immediately cabbage on to any new craigslist posting. They promise to pay extra and then you receive two fraudulent emails. One appears to be from Western union and the other one appears to be from pay pal. After that they may text you with this NY number. The listed receiver is at an abandon address in New Jersey. I wish some attorney General would clamp down on these criminals. Please note that they always have a Gmail address. This is probably because it is easy to sign up for multiple accounts. Please send all of their responses to email@example.com.
yea i got the same deal you all got. the guy said he was on a business trip so he couldn't call only text wanted to buy my husbabnd car gonna send certified bank america check for 4000. we take out cost for car and then we send the rest to the guys shipping company. then they will pick up the car sounding like a scam from the get go. this guy needs to be stopped problem is that the scammers cover their steps pretty well so they can't be caught. I had one my self on a loan i took everything to the cops and they couldn't do anything. So its hard to catch these bad peps which is really sad.
This guy tried to send me a certified check for more than double what I wanted for my motorcycle frame and have me give the excess to his private shipping company, bs scam.
Classic Scammer - I live in SD and his number is a NY number. Yea don't think it is going to work to ship my sprayer that far . .
This person contacted me in regards to an auto sale asking me to pay for the vehicle shipping up front "if his check does not get here in time"
This person is trying to get $2000 off our car lot for a 4 wheeler that he wants us to ship with his private shipper. Our ad was on Craigslist. We received a $4500 check from him in the mail. We took it to the bank, suspecting it was a scam and had the bank put it under their light. It was a fake check. We have contacted the FBI and they are looking into this situation. We are trying to avoid having him pull this scam on someone that might not check it out thoroughly before falling into his trap.
This scammer is trying to get the $2000 difference from his bogus check and my good "private shipper" payment on a craigslist listing. I hope he sends the "cashiers check" thru the US mail and I will take all his messages and the check to our State Attorney General office to file a real complaint and get the scum off the Internet. Mail fruad and check forgery is good for about ten years anyway.
This must be a scam, call from craigslist, wanting to send certified check to buy my truck
then sent his private company to pick it up. BEWARE PEOPLE! ! this is a classic scam, you will be screwed

Obvious Criagslist scammer. Got a message from this person today wanting to buy my boat. We live in Arkansas. He claims to live in Colorado. This person also denies this is a New York phone number. It's Manhattan. Stop trying to scam people, or get your kicks by doing this.
