I found this on craigslist why do people do stuff like this????
The shipping arrangements have already been made before moving to Portugal. The car is at the shipping company in 2145 Hamilton Avenue, San Jose, CA 95125 ready to go anywhere in the United States. It will arrive with all the papers and documents required for registration and the keys. The clear title and the bill of sale will be already signed by me.
The final price you will have to pay is $5,399 but only if you can make the payment by tomorrow. The payment will be done through eBay. They will act as a third party in this transaction. You will send the money to eBay and as soon as the payment is confirmed they will notify me to proceed with the shipping. I will ship the car, you will receive it and will have 5 days for inspection, both the car and the paperwork. During all this time eBay will hold the money. If you are satisfied with the car and decide to keep it you inform eBay about this and they will release the money to me. If the car is not as advertised and decide not to keep it eBay will refund you the money, no questions asked, and shipping back the car will be my concern. I think this is more than fair for the both of us. Please take into consideration that I will get paid only after you receive the car and make sure everything is as agreed.
If you agree with these terms and you have the money, send me your full name and the address where you want the car to be delivered and I will initiate the transaction with eBay. You will receive all the transaction details from them.
I will appreciate an answer as soon as possible. Also, feel free to ask me any question you may have.
Craigslist: 2006 Camper for Sale.
This is what we saw on Craigslist and it was for sale for $5,000. Super good deal is what we thought. NOPE, the seller Victoria Morgan said she didnt have time to sell it on her own, so she chose to go through eBay, the S & H was free of charge to us and she had purchased a vehicle protection plan for the camper.
All we had to do was send $5,000 thru Western Union and the camper would be shipped to us in 1-2 days. Well it has now been 3 days and STILL NO CAMPER. And no response anymore thru eBay or the seller, Victoria Morgan.
The ebay's agent's name was Joseph William adn I sent the money to 12 Fulton Street San Francisco, CA, 94102 - SO DO NOT SEND MONEY HERe!!!
THis sucks, we really needed that money, but couldn't pass on such a good deal.
This just happened on Aug 2, 2010, so if anyone has any advice - we would appreciate it - can we get our money back????
SCAM!. OMG Ossman8812! The same thing just happened to me! A lady claiming to be Julia Thompson said she is being deployed to Afganistan on Dec. 9th and had to sell her 2006 Range Rover immediately. She's asking $5500 for it so I said, hell thats a deal of a lifetime. too good to be true. well that saying is almost always correct. the blue book value was 41k! but when i looked up her information on where she lived the house in the background where the pictures were taken did not match the house listed for the address where she was selling it from. so i asked her for her phone number so i could speak with her and she never contacted me via email again. never heard from her but yet ebay kept sending me invoices saying i was agreeing to purchase this vehicle. ebay is the worst site ever! GO CRAIGSLIST!!
Good for nothing. i wonder why every number listed for this company is not working the only way to contact them is if you are a member this is a very bad business practice and i encourage everyone to stay away from ebay go to craigslist
Ebay Seller Scam Artist. I bid and won a radar detector on Ebay from a user with good feedback and User and item was from the USA per the listing. The auction listing also had Payment seller preferred was Paypal, but at the end of auction I usualy go ahead and send my payment, but this time I waited and this is what happened: The following day I got an email from the seller claiming that "Unfortunately, after the listing closed I got Notifications from eBay and Paypal and I must warn you that my account is unavailable and you cannot pay for the item through Paypal as usual. Item Location: United States, United States. The item will be shipped from this location by one of my employees, I must collect the payment because I am the seller, now I am located in United Kingdom because I have to sign a contract with a company and I know the mainspring of the paypal problem was caused because my account was accessed from different locations, while traveling to UK. Anyway we have a solution, payment approved by eBay for this transaction is Western Union Money Transfer so you can send the payment in a few minutes." I knew then it was a scam for sure and I sent him an email telling him there was no way I was wiring any money and that this was not per the agreement of his listing let alone he does not even live in the USA he is in the UK??? No way. I am still getting emails requesting payment or he is to take action. I have reported him as an Ebay rep advised me but I do not think anything has been done yet. I even believe his feedbacks are bogus since I contacted one who said he had not done any transaction with him. So be aware if you come across: Ebay Seller "da_pawn_guy_20"
BIG SCAM. I needed a car and found 2005 Honda Accord with 55,000 miles on it for $2,600 on Craigslist and i though wow that a good deal. I emailed him and he told me a nice story about that he is SGt in the Air Force and he was relocated to canada and needed to sell this back to the USA. I told him to give me his phone number he said he didnt have it. His name is Richard Merson. Thank god that i came across this site and found out that this was a scame
possible scam. A women says she wants to sell us a car. It is listed on Craigs List, but she wants to use Ebay as a third party escrow. She would only except a moneygram. She will not except Pay Pal. The so called ebay third party sent an e-mail saying to make a check out to an ebay customer service agent. Oddly enough there were two different addresses on two different e-mails. The one address is a vacant lot in Los Angeles and this address. We are very suspicious.
Scam. Do not buy a car through craiglist by a lady named ANA DROBSON this person gave us a speech about how she just got divorced and she was left with this suv that she wanted to sale for $2650.00 she said she was located in austin texas so we werent far away and we wanted to test drive the car before we decided to buy it. She then proceed to tell us that she just moved here and that the car was located in ohio, she would never give us a phone number to call she would only email us. She sent us a email that said ebay would send us the information that would tell us how to send the money, she told us after we sent the moneygram to this agent that they would send us the car and the agent would hold the money until we decided to buy it. We then got a email from what it was said was "Ebay moters" which brought us to this website. I guess she wasnt smart enough to see that there are reviews all over this website saying its a huge scam. People arent as stupid as you think. Thanks to this website we are aware that she is doing nothing but trying to scam us to get our money. BE AWARE OF THIS ANA DROBSON!!!!
Beware -- A Scam. I too almost got scam by this company. A 2003 Mercedes with 69k miles was listed on Craigslist for real cheap--I fell for it and thought it was a legimate ad. The lady gave me a sad story about expecting her first child and needed the money right away. The invoice and other documentation looked authenic. But after checking with eBay, I was told they never send invoice to your private email and payment is made through PayPal instead of money gram -- People beware of these scam artist. I hope they get what they deserve.
I had just had a baby 3 months ago and needed another car to get him to doctor appointment while my husband was at work. I was super excited when I found a Mini Cooper for $2900. I spent a week talk to this lady in "Florida" and she gave me a nice story that she needed it sold for a divorce or something. She had said in the email not to respond unless I had the full amount of money, so I began the process of getting money transfered from one account to another. My husband though thought it was too go to be true, so we email the real Ebay to find out it was a scam and then I can across this web site. I am so glad I didnt give them the money and now fell stupid for thinking someone could sell a car at that price!!!!
Do these people have no morals?
