Hello all,
here's the story:
my sister-in-law called us a few weeks ago asking how she would pay for a car she found online (on craigslist). I told her that she could pay through paypal, but warned her that she she shouldn't pay for anything until she actually has the car in front of her.

After hanging up, I was concerned that she wasn't going to take my advice so I had my wife call her and try to talk her out of it. She told my wife all kinds of things that threw up serious red flags for me. My wife and i both told her not to get into it and she didn't listen. here's what caused alarm for me:

-the seller was out of state
-the seller claimed to be from our state (WI) but in Utah to care for his sick son
-seller claimed to need money for son's operation
-seller offered to pay shipping of the car to WI
-seller asked for payment through moneygram
-car was WAY too cheap (about $8000 under kelley blue book value)

to you and me, this is obviously a scam in the works, but my sister in law isn't computer savy at all and tends to be too trusting.
the seller assured her that if they complete the money transfer through ebay that she would be assured satisfaction. I didn't understand how ebay would help since the car was listed on craigslist, but...

she got an email from ebay (which was fake) listing the payment, his name and address (most likely also fake) and a third name and address in Canada whom he said would ship the car (more red flags, i know).

Long story short, she sent the money ($4000) against our advice and he disappeared. I had to tell her today that the email from ebay was fake and that she was out the money.

I'm not sure what else to tell her to do though. She doesn't seem to like the idea of calling the local police. I doubt they can help, but I thought it would be good to at least make a report. -i alos thought perhaps they could lead her in another direction to get help.

As far as tracking the IP address, all I have here is the forwarded message and I don't know how to do that. If i view the source I just get my sister-in-law's IP address.

I'm going to copy and paste the forwarded email below. I'll just take out my sister-in-law's info and leave the rest.

Thanks in advance for your help on this one.

This e-mail message was sent to you from eBay , with the full support of the eBay Payment Security Inc.



Complete your eBay transaction in 5 easy steps:

1. Buyer and seller agree on the transaction terms and a selling price. Seller contacts eBay with the transaction details;

2. eBay accepts the transaction and offers purchase protection to the buyer (if the transaction is declined, no further action is required from either the buyer or the seller);

3. The buyer sends payment to eBay Safe Harbor. After the payment is made , the buyer must notify eBay sending the payment details ONLY to our SafeHarbour Team. The seller has three business days to provide eBay and the buyer with the transport tracking number. If no tracking number is provided, a full refund is immediately sent to the buyer.

4. Buyer receives the merchandise and has 3 (Three) days to inspect it. If it is as expected and as what agreed over, the buyer should accept the merchandise. If he refuses the merchandise by any valid reason, the buyer must ship the merchandise back to the seller at the seller's expense within 3 (Three) business days.

5. Upon the inspection period, buyer must contact eBay with the result of the inspection. If buyer refuses the merchandise, a full refund will be sent to the buyer after the tracking number for the returning shipment is verified.

We will secure your payment until you send us your confirmation that you are satisfied with the product you received.

Hi Kekona
I'm sorry to hear your sister-in-law got scammed like this, unfortunately there is very little she can do. If she doesn't like the idea of going to the police she could file an online report here: http://www.ic3.gov/

If she can find the headers on her computer, she could copy and paste them to you.

Hi Kekona

Jeeze man that's a lotta dough to be out of pocket.So many trusting souls out there,that old saying if it looks to good to be true it ain't sure rings true.I can say here in Canada,Toronto,the cops recently tracked down the scammer in a case similar to your sister inlaws.Don't recall exactly but may have had something to do with Craigslist also.Things are wide open there for people to be duped and that is well known.And they do take it seriously from what i read in the recent news article.

Hard to believe she wouldn't listen to you guys will be a lesson well learned.Not being fascetious i do sympathize man.I say go to the cops and if she does not wanna do it you take the bull by the horns and report it right away.Unless she can throw them kinda bucks away.

Please do report back here and let us know how she or you get along.If she does not report it is just gonna keep simmering in her mind for sure...not good for anyones mental health.

Peace

That's zwaar klote, I still haven't found the right translation for that one, but it isn't good.
Maybe edit the sellers details in your post (if they are real info)
As said above, report it. I don't think the Leduc address is connected to this, just used by them so you might want to warn them that their address is used, they might even be a former victim of the same scam the owner of the address

Sorry to hear that you are another to have lost money.

I'm always angry when I hear that a scammer has taken money from a victim.
The likelihood of the victim ever getting that money back is approximately zero. That's also a cause to be angry.

And, yes, we do need to 'catch this guy' but, unfortunately, the chances of that happening are also approximately zero.

We all need to spend time educating the populace about scams, because we'll never stop the scammers plying their trade whilst their are still victims to be had.

I'm also a "Show Me" from central US.

Sorry, cmh1205, but that money is gone. The scammer is most likely not even in US and possibly not even in Canada.

Goldwing For Sale ..... SCAM
Lots of useful things to look at here... and maybe a little entertaining  Heres the ad .... http://www.adpost.com/ca/vehicles/12000/
This has been done on Ebay, Craigs list, AdPost, etc ... etc.. With cars, bikes, trucks.......
I hope no one has fallen for this scam!!!!!!!!!!
I was sending emails to this guy from 2 accounts and he gave me 2 tracking #s for the same product.
Here are the emails:
I am still leading him on as I do this 
M = Me ...... S = Scammer

Email 1 (these emails were being sent at the same time)

M - Hi,
I am interested in your Goldwing. You must have to get rid of it quick. I was not looking for a bike until the summer but I really love the Goldwings. Is it still available? How can I pick it up? and when?
S - Hi,
If you want to buy the bike, you need to know that the bike is in good condition , never been damaged or involved in any accidents or suffered repaires or else.
Why is the price USD $3500; well the price is low beacuse i need to sell fast and easy.
The bike is located in San Francisco , CA , at a shipping company packed and ready for shipping.
The car was inspected by the shipping company so is in a good condition.
You may ask me why is the bike there. Well the bike is there beacuse right now I moved in England with my work.
If you want to purchase the bike please email me back and i will explain you the process (payment and shipping).

Thank You.
M - I'm interested. What's the process?
S - Hello again,
For payments we will use WorldPay company (www.worldpay.com) , they will secure the transaction for us.
You need to send me back your legal name, legal address and phone number , this info i will send to WorldPay to open a case id#.
WorldPay will contact you with the payment details, you will have to make a deposit of $1500 to WorldPay. They will keep the money secured untill this transaction is ends.
In the same day when you will make the deposit to WorldPay and they confirm that you made the deposit i will shipp the car to your address.
You will get the car with bill of sale , title signed by me in original, manuals and keys.You will have 10 days to inspect the car and decide if you will keep it or not , if you don't like the car then WorldPay will give you the money back in the same day when the shipping company will come and pick up the car. You will pay only the registration of the car to your name. The car will be shipped from San Francisco, CA to your address.
I will wait for your info to start the process .
Thank You.
M - Hi, sounds good.
You keep mentioning car... The Goldwing is a bike....Right?
You don't have any pics, do you?
I'll send the info ASAP.
S Car
M - It's a car? Do you have a website I can go to to see what that type of car looks like? I thought that it was an 1800cc scooter.
S - :))) no sir is the bike
M - haha...

so this is what it looks like?
I'm interested!

I'm just wondering how this account works: WorldPay company (www.worldpay.com).

$1500 is a fair bit of cash to send for a deposit. I don't know your name or have a number to contact you at. I just want to make sure that I will get the bike.... just a little skeptical

The sooner I get the bike... the better:) I know you are trying to get rid of it quick. I just want to make sure my money is secure.

I understand that the shipping company will send everything to my address, I'd just like to know who I'm purchasing it from. I hope this is not a problem.

S I will pay all shipping and delivery costs (they are included in the buy it now price).
You need to send me back your legal name, legal address and phone number , this info i will send from shipping company.

I will wait for your info to start the process .
Thank You
S - if u are interested and ready to close the deal i will need you name and address to make the delivery and start the deal .

To make the payment you will need only my full name and adress.

auction they will extra charge me $190 when I will pick up the money .. so please tell them that I am your friend
because i will pay for the shipping and insurance and I don;t want to pay more taxes.

Is there any alternative?

You can also use the header tool, http://headertool.apelord.com/headers. If you place the header, or just their IP in it, you get their location.

I've found it to be the most accurate out of the few i've tried.

I talked to that scammer in that first email, also claiming to be in Ephraim Utah. I suspect these are eastern european scammers running this. I was trying to use up a lot of the scammers time and figure out more on their operation.

They post LOTS of ads on craigslist, for cars way undervalued. I think they just steal photos from car sales sites and put it up under their own fake ads. I think its going to be pretty much impossible to get money back from these people once it is sent. Last one I talked to, claimed the US Air Force would deliver the car at the airport for me..hahaha

Sorry to hear about your sister's loss. It is important for her to file a police report because losses due to fraud are usually tax deductible, so while she won't get her money back, she can probably recoup at least a portion of it that way.

Filing a report at ic3.gov is also a very good thing.

These scammers must repost these ads thousands of times a day. I see dozens of them up each day on the craigslist section where I live. If anyone wants to have some fun, here is another one, and it is probably the same group that scammed his money earlier, based on the email address

"2002 Toyota Camry XLE

These are great cars and this one will give many years of reliable service. And super gas mileage !! Tires and brakes are excellent. It has just been inspectedand serviced.
I must sell the car very quick and I know the price is a little low.

Flawless factory paint, non smoker interior, clean carpets, and seats, drives like a newer car, it has had exceptional care.

I took great care of this car's exterior, no fade or sun damage. With an interior like this, the only thing that I could call this vehicle is extra clean.
