you right!!! just had fun with 3 of them!! i keep emailing them that i want what they got! after 4 or 5 emails, when they think they got me, i just lay it on them!!! i really cant figure out why the law cant do something about these guys? it would be so easy to catch them!!! i guess its just a lot easier for the law to give speeding tickets to us for going 3 miles an hour over the speed limit, plus they make money????

beast - these people are not sitting at their house using their real name from a computer that is registered to them. It is extremely hard to catch these people.

scam process

Yeah but they need to make it easier to delete the post. I tried doing what they said and it doesn't work. It should be 1 click and they are banned. Not open the post, then click the scam, then wait, then have to hit the back button. That takes too long. I tried to hit them hard the other day, but I couldn't deal with how long it takes.

Right

Hillary, Obama and John Kerry are all intimately involved in day to day enforcement of cyber crime against LASM users. They need to be held accountable!

Did you hit your head on the table this morning trying to catch a falling Fruit Loop?

You keep posting garbage like that and people will begin thinking that you need a straight jacket.

I seen an ad on the Louisiana sportsman that you are selling 2 four wheelers and a trailer for $2000.oo is this correct.

Do you still have them for sale ?

SCAMMER

Hello,

Thank you for your interest in purchasing my atv's. The atv's are in perfect working condition, garage kept, with nothing mechanically wrong - like new! If you decide to buy them, you'll receive all the papers, owner manual, keys, a buy-sell contract already signed by me.

For this transaction I want to use eBay Autos because I want to have a smooth and fast transaction . The atv's are at the shipping company warehouse in Augusta ,ME and from there it will be shipped to buyer's address. You will have to make the payment to eBay Autos and they will hold the money until you receive the atv's. ONLY AFTER you receive the atv's and you inspect them (for 5 days) they will release the payment to me. The inspection time period will begin as soon as you receive the atv's at your requested address. During all this time eBay Autos will hold the money into a trust account. So, this is not a blind transaction, you can see the atv's before decided to buy them. In this way we are both protected.

The final price is $2,000 with shipping costs and insurance included. The price is low because I want to sell the atv's very quickly. My husband died 2 months ago and I along with my daughter we decided to sell the house and move to my sister in Augusta . 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 atv's please send me your full name, shipping address and your phone number. eBay Autos will notify you all the details about the shipping and payment.

I will appreciate an answer as soon as possible.

Regards,

Maria Hilton.

Same here. Just toyed with one for a week. Betty sent me a website Safetypay to send $1800. I sent them a fake confirmation number through money gram and bugged her ten times a day to ship it. No responses from her after she, Betty, sent me additional safety pay requests when I told (her) that I payed and sent the fake confirmation number everytime she sent another one.

Attempted scam

I was selling some equipment on Craigslist and a scammer tried to get me. He told me that he would buy my equipment and send me the money through Paypal.I had my equipment priced at $1,200 he 'sent' $2,000 and said $800 was for the shipping only catch was he said that I would need to send $800 by money order to 'his shipping company' before the funds would be transferred into my account. Everything looked legit i recorved conformation emails from Paypal verifying the money withdrawn from his account and would be transferred to mine after I paid his shipping company, I didn't like the way things sounded and the way the buyer kept threading to report me to Paypal for not shipping the item promptly (he 'sent' the money at 9am and threatened at 2pm the same day) then I told him I wasn't interested in doing business with him and he called me a cheat. I called Paypal to cancel the supposedly real transaction they told me that it was a scam no money was sent and the e-mails were not from them. I was happy to have not fallen for it but I wanted justice. After send the scammer some choice words I called the FBI in New Orleans to ask how to report him. She told me to report him to www.ic3.gov I reported him with every detail I could. I know that it will probably never result in anything but it made me feel better knowing that I at least did my part.

Moral of the story don't trust anyone when buying or selling and if your scammed or involved in an attempted scam report them to www.ic3.gov.
