Offer Up Auto Scam

Scammer email: [email protected]

Hi again, as I’ve told you, at this moment I am in Elmendorf AFB in Anchorage, AK in a military base. I do a special training program each day and I am not allowed to get out of the unit or call whenever I want. The reason I’m selling this car way below market value is because I don’t have time for negotiations and I need money before August 30 for my next house in Anchorage. Before leaving I had pre-arranged the deal with eBay so my presence is not necessary. They can protects both buyer and seller and it’s the right way to do this. The car is in their possession at eBay storage warehouse in Richmond, VA, crated and ready to be delivered. eBay will handle this transaction and the total amount that you will pay is $2,000 (NO hidden or shipping fees). After the payment is confirmed and secured by eBay I will start the shipping. You will receive the car at your home address within 2-3 working days. It will come with a clear title and reg. I am a member of eBay buyer protection program and using this service you will get a 5 days testing period after delivery and then I will get the payment. SO…ONLY AFTER you receive the car and agree to keep it, eBay will release the payment to me, in this way we are both protected. If by any reason you find something you don’t like about it you can send it back on my expense but I’m sure it won’t be the case because my car is in excellent condition. It will come with all the necessary paperwork (clear title, bill of sale, user’s auto. etc). You will receive all the original documents. I signed all the paperwork and the clear title is ready to be transferred to the new owner.
I need to know if you are still interested, so I can ask eBay to send you the details on this deal. If you are interested, please include in the next email your contact information for eBay (full name, shipping address and phone number), so we can move forward with this transaction.

Text and Email scammer from Craigslist

I posted an ad on Craigslist and allowed people to text me. I received a text from the below number asking me to email the below email address to let them know if the item was still available. I replied to the text and stupidly sent them an email before realizing this made no sense. Why would they text me and ask me to email them when they could have emailed me from Craigslist. I searched for the number and email address and found it attached to MANY scams, from Craigslist job listings, to replying to classified listings for other items, etc. I have since updated all my security and blocked them.

Hi there,
My name is Mary Baldridge, thank you for your interest in buying my truck. My 2002 Toyota Tacoma SR-5 . It is in perfect condition, no need for additional repairs,no scratches, dings, rust, special marks whatsoever. The interior looks great. It runs like new and all services are up to date. Also, I need to mention that it was never involved in any accidents. The price is $1,900 (non-negotiable). This belonged to my husband and after he passed away i decided to sell it. I have another truck so I’m trying to sell it as soon as possible, my name is on the title. I moved at my daughter because I had a throat surgery and i will remain here for few months at least.

SCAM in craiglist about selling a car

Saw an AD in craiglist for a car sale. I texted the person and then she told me to send her an email. She then sent me some pictures of the car with this following email:Thanks for asking, my 2010 Honda CRV EX-L is still for sale. is automatic, FWD, 2row seats, and great shape, the maintenance done on proper time intervals (my mechanic look over it before i post the ad). also has 68,555K miles, clear title, 2.4L I4 engine! I’m selling it because my boy of only 25 died 3 months ago in a car accident, a drunk driver hit him and his fiancee. He was with fiancee’s car, coming to our home at his little brother birthday. The car belonged to my son and brings me bad memories, that’s the reason i sell it so low ($2,000).
Me and my husband travel a lot with our job so we decide to make the deal thru’ eBay Protection Program because they protect both of us and also offer you 5 days inspection period. All documents, title and bill of sale on your name will come along with the car (we had another deal with eBay and everything went smoothly)

If you are interested let me know, Sarah
THEN: she sent me this after asking her when it was possible to go see the car:

Hi again ,the car is located at eBay warehouse in Saint Louis, MO. It’s already sealed and waiting to be delivered anywhere (i will pay the shipping so all you have to pay is just $2,000). Like i said, we will use eBay Protection Program so we can both be protected and insured. the car will arrive at your address in 3 days and you will have 5 days to inspect it. Once you inspected it and decided to keep it, you will confirm your decision to eBay and only then eBay will re-route the money in to my account. But, if by any reason, you won’t be satisfied you will ship it back on my expense and they will give you a full refund. In this way you will be able to inspect the vehicle before committing to buy and as you see I WON’T GET ANY MONEY UNTIL YOU WILL SEE AND TEST THE CAR!
If you want to start the transaction with eBay just reply here your full name and delivery address then eBay will contact you by e-mail with an invoice and explain better the whole process…thanks!

P.S. please let me know if you want to know more about the steps of transactio.

Is anyone on Oodle legit? This whole page must be a scam site.

Also on global-free-classified-ads DOT com as Anastasia P.

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.
The vehicle is at Google’s shipping center in Oklahoma City, OK and from there it will be shipped to my buyer’s address. I have registered the vehicle with Google Wallet Protection Program so a local pick-up is not an option.This transaction is covered by Google Wallet’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 vehicle will be my concern. I strongly assure you it will not be the case for a refund. I have used Google Wallet in the past and all my transactions ended successfully. You pay to Google Wallet and they will transfer the funds to me only after you receive the vehicle at your address.
The financial part of our transaction is going through Google Wallet and here are the steps:
– I need your full name, shipping address and phone#;
– I will forward this information to Google Wallet purchase protection department and they will start our transaction;
– Google Wallet 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 vehicle you will have another 5 days to inspect it.
– when the inspection period ends, Google Wallet contacts you and if there are any issues with the vehicle, they will fully refund you within 3 business days and the vehicle will be shipped back at my expense. If all is good with the vehicle 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 numbers (both cell number and home number), in order to start the transaction! Google Wallet will send you important guidelines and instructions regarding the protection program and payment instructions.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.

P.S.: Here you have more picture attached.

1999 Jeep Cherokee Classic sport 4.0L

So I found a Craigslist ad for a Jeep Cherokee and I inquired about it thru their phone number. They asked for my email to send info and pics so I did. Here is the conversation back and forth.
Hello there,

My 1999 Jeep Cherokee Classic, is still for sale.This SUV is in great shape. I’m the original owner. It has no damage, no scratches, dents or hidden defects. It is in immaculate condition, meticulously maintained and hasn’t been involved in any accident…Has only 77,785 miles, its automatic, with an 4.0L 6 cylinders engine,4×4, red exterior and gray interior.
I have a clear title, without liens or loans on it, under my name. I am selling it at this final price of $1,500 because my husband died 1 month ago (he had a heart attack) and it brings me bad memories and that’s the reason I want to sell it a.s.a.p. I want to use eBay services for the safety of both of us so if you’re interested in purchasing this vehicle, I can notify eBay that you are selected as my possible buyer and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure.

Thank you,

My brother and I responded with this:
Hi Allison,

Thank you for your email regarding some additional info on your Jeep and my condolences regarding your husband. We are very interested, but would need to see and test drive it before committing to purchase. We also may have some additional questions, but we want 1st crack at it. We are available sometime Saturday or Sunday to come see it and would be happy to purchase at that time. You mentioned wanting to use Ebay, but what was your plan on how to do that? Do you have the Jeep listed there? For test driving and seeing it, my suggestion would be to meet at a Police station parking lot to see the it and drive it as that’s where I prefer to meet clients when I sell on Craigslist. Where is this Jeep located? We are in Bristol. We would like you to kindly hold this until we can make an appointment with you to see it and then we will probably buy it right then and there. For quicker communication my cell is xxx xxx xxxx and my name is Jeremy. You may text or call me or my sister Jessica to set something up. If all goes well, we’d like to own this by Sunday at the latest.

Thank you for your time Allison,

And here’s her response:

Hi again,
Thank you for your kind words and support, I appreciate as I have been through a difficult period in my life after my husband passed away.As I have told you in previous email my husband died recently. I had to move out and now I am living with my parents in Omaha, Nebraska. At the moment they are the only ones I can rely on. The vehicle is at the shipping company sealed and ready for the shipping. The deal includes free delivery and it will arrive at your address in 2-4 days. Once you will get the vehicle you will have 5 days to try it out prior to making any purchase. In the case that you feel that the vehicle is not suitable,you can just return it all fees being on my expense. When receiving it you will have as well all the documents including title, sale bill , 2 sets of keys, full service records and more. The title and the bill of sale will be notarized and signed by me. If you are interested in knowing more info about how it works, I can ask eBay to send you an email with more information on how to purchase it. Please reply with your whole name, a delivery address including (street, city,state, zip code) and ph# and they will contact you right away. As soon as I hear that from you I will initiate the transaction through them.
Have a great day,
Sincerely,
Allison Estrada,

My brother responded with this:

Hi Allison,

You must have an Ebay listing specifying exactly how this works? I’ve been doing Ebay transactions for 10 years and have never heard of such a method. Please have Ebay email me with some additional details or provide me your Ebay name and listing number. We are very interested in doing this deal, but I can’t see with shipping costs and Ebay fees how you are going to make much profit selling this Jeep. I would only do this transaction providing what you say is in an Ebay listing we can see on their site. I’m sure you can appreciate my hesitation.

And my brother also sent this:

Hello,

Something doesn’t add up here. Unless you can provide me an Ebay listing I think we’ll pass. When a listing expires all you need to do is hit the relist button. I’d be happy to view the details of the transaction there.

Thanks,

And then she wouldn’t give us a listing and kept emailing back with these responses. The last one will be our last message back to her:

And yes Jeremy , I have had the Jeep listed for sale on eBay as well but the ad has expired there a couple of days ago and you cannot find it online anymore but if you need further info on how this works I will need your full name full address and phone # to send them over to their representatives and register you to this sale.Then they will process our request and will send us more details on how this entire process will be handled and what we have to do to complete it.As for the shipping fees I am using a gift voucher for shipping and none of us would have to pay for shipping a penny.

Jessica or Jeremy,
I don`t know is that you can`t add up but I don`t want to pay again for a service that I already own just because you want to.If you wish to purchase my Jeep I have provided you a way to do it , if you don`t want it you can just say no.
sincerely,
Allison

Hi Allison,

Since you haven’t provided any info we have asked for we will pass at this time.

Thanks,
