Google Checkout Fraud (Mostly Auto): Just Be Careful

Jul 28, 2010 • 8:24 am | comments (1219) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Other Google Topics
 

Online scams is nothing new, we have all seen those emails from people offering us money or selling us stuff or buying stuff from us. In fact, I personally was contacted by someone who sent a fraudulent check to buy an old car of mine. I didn't end up falling for the scam, but so many people do.

Many people have recently been falling for scams that involve the Google Checkout name. There is an extremely long thread at Google Web Search Help with dozens of people who were scammed out of tens of thousands of dollars through Google Checkout. I should add that not always is the transaction done through Google Checkout, but sometimes it is done through a fake Google Checkout clone (spoofed site).

If someone asks you to pay them for something you do not have yet via Google Checkout, please - I beg you, read the stories in the thread and consider where they have gone wrong.

I also strongly recommend reviewing Google Checkout's security center to learn more about how to prevent being scammed through this service.

Don't fall prey to these people.

I just got scammed by a Megan Morris who is leaving for Irac and needed to sell her Macbook on Craigslist via Google Checkout. I wired $600 thru Western Union to Greg Cotton in the UK. I was to get the Mac for a five day inspection. Never heard from them again after the money was received. Now I know. Glad it was only $600.00.

This person tried to scam me as well. They put a 2005 Honda Accord on Auto Trader for 2,950. This ad was also stated in 3 other locations in Canada. This person then told me they had to sell the car quick because he would be deploying for 14 months to Afghanistan. This person then claimed that he/she would ship the car for FREE and that I'd be able to check out the car for 5 days and then he would receive the money. I almost fell for this! He then sent me a Google Checkout form that looked pretty legit... along with a Western Union account where I could put the money. At this point, I felt something was not right. I searched, "Google Checkout Fraud" and soon came to realize that other people had been told the same story but went through with the transaction and never got the car or money back! I'm happy to say this has not happened to me. I want to warn others of this person!!!! This is the name and address he used for himself: Seller: Name: Amelia Mcalfred Address: 401 S Harris Ave City: Indianapolis State: Indiana Zip: 46222 Country: United States and this is the Western Union name and address: Google Checkout Agent Details: Name: Peter Douglas Address: 79 Lichfield Grove City: London State: N/a Zip: N3 2jl Country: United Kingdom Please, Please be CAREFUL!

Here's another one: (for a loaded concession trailer for $2900, delivery included# Dude's fake name is "Craig Bennet / craigbennet95@yahoo.com" Subject: Re: concession trailer Hi Please apologize me for my delayed response. Let me tell you a few words about the trailer. This mobile food trailer #8x20# is coming to you fully loaded. It has everything you need to start making money as soon as you purchase. I can say this, i wish i could have found this deal when i was trying to buy my unit. This is really a great deal. The trailer is in excellent condition - LIKE NEW. I must say that is a very reluctant sale because I'm going through a divorce right now, and I'm in a time crunch, which forces me to sell it under market value. This turns out to be a financial disaster for me. Anyone who went through a divorce knows exactly what I'm talking about! Therefore, the price is $2,900 # shipping included # The trailer is located in Kentucky # but so i can enlarge my perspectives and reach more buyers, i listed it on numerous states #. I have a friend who works for DAS company, so there won't be a problem arranging for a truck to transport the trailer to your home address. The trailer will arrive at your shipping address in 3 to 5 days, depending on weather and traffic. Because of my work # I'm a petroleum engineer #, the financial part will be manage by Google Checkout so You will have 5 days to inspect and verify the trailer before Google Checkout will forward the money to my account. Basically, it's similar to buying a trailer locally, the money will be sent to their holding account, and they will keep the money until you will receive the trailer. If you're still interested and you would like to go over the transaction steps email me back ASAP, time is of the essence, and I have to decide. Hope to hear from you soon,

Someone just tried to scam me dont know what i can do here is the first email Hello there, I'm writing you regarding my 2003 BMW 325xi. The car is in perfect condition, it is fully loaded and it has 71,000 miles on it. The price is firm, $2950. I have to tell you that I left the car in South Dakota at the shipping company because I'm currently at work, I'm a casino dealer on a cruise ship. Regarding the transaction, I will use Google Checkout program. If you are interested give me a reply so we can talk about that. Thank you, Alicia and here is the second Hi Will, If you are interested to purchase the car I want you to know that the transaction fits the Google Checkout protection plan. Google Checkout reimburses buyers who are involved in a vehicle transaction through their program. The program provides reimbursement for all the situations that can appear in a transaction. The money will be sent to Google Checkout. After the payment is received and secured by Google Checkout, they will inform me about that and I will start the shipping. The delivery process will take 3 days and it will be a door to door service so the car will be delivered directly to your home address. From the moment you receive it you have a 5 days inspection period. After the 5 days you have to decide if you want to keep the car or not. If you'll keep it, the payment will be released to me. In case you will not like the car and decide not to keep it, you will get a full refund from Google Checkout and the car will be shipped back on my expense. If you agree I will need your name, shipping address and your phone # in order to register the deal with Google Checkout. Sorry for the long email. I have tried to touch all bases. Waiting for your reply. Thank you, Alicia she posed as someone named alica colley and here is the email it was sent from. piea@comcast.net

I just finished giving away over $5000 to this same type of scam. I was looking for a polaris ranger, and located one on craigslist. I contacted the buyer, he told me an almost identical story to those posted here. He explained what the ranger was used for, how many hours it had on it, and what attachments were going to be included with it. I sent the money via western union (first mistake) got a reply from 'googlecheckout' letting me know that everything was in order. I got a second email from 'googlecheckout' letting me know that I needed to make a second payment (second mistake), and then shortly after the second payment was made, I did not hear from neither the seller nor 'googlecheckout' again. A good piece of advice was given by William B Scott, check out Google Checkouts security page before you commit any money or personal information to these types of folks. I wish I would have done a little more research before I dug myself this hole! Best of luck.

lol, people like these con artist make me sick, he tried to get me as well, but whenever a deal is too good to be true, it normally is... Re: trailer From: Michael Smorelott Add to Contacts To: Michael Albert -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I will briefly describe the Google Checkout transaction steps so I can make things clearer for both of us: 1. Please go to www.GoogleCheckout.com, register and forward me the ID ( e-mail address that you use to register ) along with your name and address. 2. Buyer and seller reach an agreement (price and delivery condition). 3. Seller sends all the details of the transaction to Google Checkout for registration. 4. Google Checkout will email us the forms on how to complete the transaction (invoice, payment details, buyer and seller protection policy) 5. Buyer sends the money to the Google Checkout. 6. Google Checkout confirms to seller that the amount has been received. 7. Seller performs the required services (shipping, insurance). 8. Buyer receives the trailer and has 5 days to inspect it. 9. Buyer accepts delivery and informs Google Checkout about the acceptance. 10. Google Checkout releases the money to seller. If you won't like the trailer or if it is not as described, which I can assure you it won't be the case because it's a state of the art looking and working item, it will be returned to me at my expense and you will receive a full refund from Google. I tried to be as clear as possible to be sure we are on the same page, I have to cover my side as well. I need your agreement as well as your name and shipping address, so we can register the transaction with Google Checkout in order to receive their instructions step by step on how to complete the transaction safely. If you have other questions feel free to email me, I hope we can do business together.

We are looking at a car and this is the email we got back from the "seller". Can y'all give it a gander and tell me what you think? I dont know...there is just something that doesnt feel right about her email. Why wouldnt someone take the HARD CASH option when they can over any other forms of payment? ************************************************************************* Hello, I'm glad to see your inquiry about my 2007 BMW X5 with only 45,314 miles.It is in immaculate mechanically conditions and runs like a new one.The title is clear with no loan or lien on it. The selling price for the SUV is $5870 with all the delivery and handling costs included. I would like to tell you that I'm not selling this SUV for profit or due to lack of money. The reason for selling the SUV is that some recent events in my life made me change my perception of certain things, things that I've considered important in the past. The funds received after this sale will be donated to charity. Right now I'm traveling with UNICEF as a volunteer. I don't want to offend you, but if you intend to apply for a loan or financing, please do not respond because the SUV is priced for a fast sale and I require a cash transaction. Also, I want to be sure that we do this transaction in the safest mode possible for both of us. I recommend we do the transaction using Google Checkout because they offer the highest rate of safety and reliability during online transactions. If you want to buy the vehicle and you agree to complete the sale using Google Checkout please reply so I can give you a detailed description on how the transaction will be done. This means that the payment will be handled by Google and you will benefit of the 10 days inspection time period and the option to accept or reject the SUV on my expense. I just need your full name and address so i can open a case.(with no further obligation or fees). Also, if you need details and pictures of the SUV please let me know so I can send them to you... I look forward for your reply. Thank you, Jessica Hauer ************************************************************************* Any opinions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance

We replied to Jessica Hauer asking about the price of this vehicle and we received the identical email. She is in the process of setting up our Google Checkout process. We are also very skeptical and am glad to see your post. It appears that as soon as we inquired about this vehicle the craigslist post was gone. Too good to be true?

SecretSquirrel

01/30/2011 02:38 pm

I can add a third "Jessica Hauer" reply with the same wording. You probably also received a message from "Craigslist" that said the following: "Dear Customer , You sent a question using our site regarding item Beautiful BMW X5 Sport Automatic 2007 to Jessica Hauer which is Power seller registered since 12/12/2005. Thank you for using craigslist!" This message is forged and originates from the same mail server as "Jessica's" message. I'd be interested to know if the other recipients we browsing the Dallas area craigslist, or another city? Everyone needs to go read the Google forum thread on this and remember that under no circumstance of which I am aware is a car being sold for one sixth of it's blue book a valid sale.

I would like to handle the sale using Google Checkout for our own protection as they act as a neutral third part. Google will keep the money until you inspect/drive the vehicle. This is how the Google Checkout works: 1. I will contact Google and give all the info about this deal. 2. They will email us the forms by email - about the buyer's protection policy, delivery, and payment. 3. You will send the payment to Google Checkout and they will notify me to ship the vehicle to your location. 4. After you will inspect/drive the vehicle and decide to keep it, Google will forward me the funds and the deal is done. You have 5 days to test it. If by any reason the vehicle is not as described or if you find any problems with it I will pay for the returning fees. If you wish to purchase it please provide me your full name, address so I can initiate the deal through Google Checkout. Good faith has always been my top priority and my most valued business approach. Looking forward to hear from you!

I was recently scam by a guy named Clifford Rchardson, who is going to afganistan in few weeks and needed to sell hes car before leaving. I had a feelling it wasnt right but I ignored my feeling. How I wish id reseached before sending the money.A 2006 honda civic for 2990. I bargain that I had just recieved my loan from school and I needed a car because the one I have is giving too much problem.He agree and told me to send the money. I felt lucky and I went on trying to to send the money. On trying to senf the money I was told that I will pay $135 to send the money to UK, But I didnt have any money after the $2700 we agreed on. So I didnt border to tell him. He wrote the next day and told me if I still wanted the car I said yes and I told him my situation he said its because he was trying to push it out of where the car is, so we settled 2570. A difference of 2700 and 130 which I told him be thee cost of sending the money. He agree that I should send the money like that and yet I still didn't follow my gut. And even till now that I'm writing this I still don't believe I've been screwed. Because 8hrs ago I wrote to him about how I didn't hear from him ever since thee night I sent the money.and after 20 emails reading some of the comments on this site I definitely know that I was scam. Never knew what it means until now....and it hurt knowing that my loan is gone and the car I plan to get with the money is not going to happen till next year.

THEY ARE SHAMELESS and will rot in hell. I had an email from kimberlyksierra@aol.com and the ad was for a Kubota tractor for $2970. We did not buy it, but they have our cell phone number. Seems they always ask for strange amounts because when they convert the currency from foreign nations the result prices are odd amounts.... like obama's campaign totals!!!!

I am a single mother of two and to find out people are taking advantage like that makes me sick to my stomach. I, like everyone else works hard for there money. Now it's my turn to play with this person.....I'll have a little fun with em and then tell them no thanks to the car.

I found a 2004 Nissan Murano on craigslist.com selling for $2800. These are the emails sent from the scammer! Hey, I have a low price ( $ 2,800 including delivery to your home address ), because I want to sell the SUV very quickly. My husband died 2 months ago (he had a heart attack) and this SUV brings me bad memories and that's the reason I want to sell it. I along with my daughter decided to sell the house and we moved to my sister in Nebraska. Unfortunately I can't conclude this transaction personally because my work involves a lot of travelling but I left everything prepared for the sale. If you are really interested in purchasing, please email me with your details (name and address) for the shipping. Thanks Julia Robertson ------------------------------------------------------------------ I received your details for the shipping. Google Checkout will contact you with more info about the transaction. On Fri, Feb 4, 2011 at 10:23 PM, kendra murchison wrote: Ok. I have never used google, and I want to avoid any possible scams.

All, I just recently received a scam such as this through Craig's list; this time for a Concession Trailer. The dude said he was a soldier, and again supposedly heading off to Afghanistan. Here is the response that I sent to him: If you are a soldier, God bless you, and “No Thanks”. If you are a scammer, may you one day find out that Jesus Christ is the true Savior, and hopefully, one day you will feel remorse for what you are doing, and truly ask for forgiveness! If you don’t recognize that, well…you better “live it up now”, because as the most historically verified book in the world (The Bible - which contains the most accurately documented and unprecedented truth of the life of Jesus Christ) states: If you do not believe in Christ, and live a life of total disregard for God’s laws and his people, when death comes to you, you will have a “rude awakening” and will live forever in eternal torment. Think about the very worst feeling that you’ve had in your life, or the very worst pain, and multiply that a thousand or more times. Is that something that you want to endure eternally? I suggest that you read the Bible and find out, because, “If the Bible is True (I know it is!), think about it, IF it is true, just think of what you are looking forward to….. Nothing is going to prepare you for that, and all of the money that you have scammed out of people is not going to help you get out of that situation. Believe me, once you’re dead, you will not have 72 Virgins waiting for you; it will be quite different!

i was very close to falling for the scam untill i came here the first email: Hi , The vehicle is well maintained, no damages or scratches.I recently moved in Reno, NV with my new job and I have the vehicle here with me. You will inspect the vehicle before the payment will be made. The shipping and insurance are included in the price because I won a promotion at Alpine Auto Transporters (1 free shipping). You will also receive all necessary documents in order to finalize the purchase. I am selling the vehicle under market value because I need to pay the bank. Email me back if you're interested and have further questions. Specs: 2005 Nissan Maxima SE // 70,350 miles // 1 Owner // Clear Title // transmission: Automatic // Engine: 3.5L V6 //Leather Interior // Air Conditioning // Power Windows // Garage Kept // Non-Smoker. Regards, Richard Watkins the 2nd email: The price is $2,583. The vehicle is already at the shipping company in Reno, Nevada sealed and ready to be shipped. I have a contract with Google Checkout so this deal must go through them. I'm very busy with my job and I'm out of the town so I can't meet in person with you so this is the reason why I chose to sell my car over the internet. According to Google's policy you have 5 days from the time you receive the vehicle to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not. Here's how it will work: 1.First of all I will need the following details from you: - Full Name - Full Shipping Address 2. After I will receive the details from you, I will forward them to Google Checkout. 3. After they will process your info, they will send us both invoices. The invoice that will be sent to you will have the details on how to make a refundable payment. They will hold your payment until the vehicle is delivered to you, inspected and you confirm that you received it in the described condition. 4. Google Checkout will contact me and I will ship the vehicle to you. After you receive it you will have 5 days to test, verify and inspect the vehicle and it's documents. After the vehicle will pass your inspection you need to contact Google with the result in order for them to release the payment to me. 5. If by any chance you won't be satisfied with it you will be fully refunded and I will have the shipping company come to pick it up. If you wish to close the transaction, you need to send me the requested info. I'm looking forward to hear from you! Thanks! before i did anything i came here noticed how emails similar and played along with it thank god i found this web by google i knew there was something fishy going on..

same thing here, truck in NY shipping out, lady this time. Sent our money thinking google checkout was a valid 3rd party. And of course now we can't even get google to help us. they send us to their website which does nothing. Makes me wonder if google is really involved in all the scams and making some good money on the side. Think of all the people who have been scammed and google knows nothing??? I think not. We have involved the FBI hoping this will help. We have also contacted the military police and have them starting on their end. But like many others, we know we will never see our $2900. Way to go google.

I am glad I thought to check out this website before I was scammed. I was so excited to find this car a 1999 Acura RL , 70, 000 miles for $1900. My scammers name is Tammy Davis and here's what she had to say. 1st email: Hi there, > > Thank you for your inquiry regarding 1999 Acura RL. If you are > interested in it you should know that it has never been wrecked > ordamaged, the car is in excellent condition. The total price that I’m > asking including shipping and insurance fees will be $1,900.00usd.

A genuine road runner ready to be yours, but only if you shall > understand and you won't make me loose time as it has already happened > to me. > > If you have any question please don't hesitate to reply. > > Thank you again for your interest. 2nd email: Before leaving U.S.I had prearranged the deal with Google Ceckout They are supervising the entire sale process from payment,shipping with a 10-day inspection period included, returns (if needed) and refunding. The car is in their warehouse ready for delivery to a buyer home address . They are supervising the entire sale process from payment, shipping with a 10-day inspection period included, returns (if needed) and refunding.So, if you are really interested in this deal I need the following details from you: Full name and address Shipping address with zip code Phone # After I will have all this details I will forward them to Google Ceckout and I will proceed the order.Google Ceckout will contact you with all the details that you need to complete this deal and also to see that i am covered by them and that I am legit seller. Thanks! This was my reply: Hi Tammy, I spoke to my partner and we are no longer interested in purchasing the car. Thank you for your time. So glad I didn't fall for this, I felt in my gut something was fishy about this!

02/25/2011 05:09 pm

This same exact thing I just went threw but I came very close to closing the deal but when I got the (fake) invoice from google check out I realized it was going to be sent to a private street address and luckly came across this website!! My scamer was on craigs list mdugann777@gmail.com, claims to be a soldier in the U.S Army leaving to Afghanistan his name is Dugann Mark John..There were pics on the psoting and a very detailed description for 2008 custom 7.5x16 concession trailer.. urgent sale 2,600.He said the trailer is packaged and ready to be shiped at no cost to me at the USArmy-Military Auto Transport Dept for POV(private owned vehicle) in MERRICK NY. He says I need to sale this trailer in two weeks because I am a US army member and I will be leaving with my platoon that is why the trailer is reduced to 2,600. He said just send me your full name and address where you want it to be shiped , I will send your information to google checkout and they will send you a invoice and instructions on where to send your payment, once google recives your (westren union) payment they will notify the USarmy and tell them to ship the trailer once google confirms delivery it you will have 5 days to inspect it, if the item is not in its description it will be shiped back to me at my cost,google checkout will not release the money to me until you confirm you have inspected it and are going to keep it...I totaly belived this guy because why would a US soldier that fights for our country want to scam me, well guess the joke was on me....I am Very Thankful that I found this web sight, and Truly feel Sorry for those who have been scamed like this..Like I told this guy ,I have three children and he would not have only taken money from me but them as well..God sees every thing and one day people like him will get what they deserve....

Another scam artist attempted to defraud me with this same technique. The horrible thing about this is that there is NOTHING on Google Checkout to alllow a consumer to verify a seller's credentials nor any way to contact a Google representative to make sure a transaction is valid. The vehicle seller listed the vehicle on Craig's list and there was also no way to contact a person on Craig's list to get verification. I've started to think both Google and Craig's list are totally unconcerned about this issue. Then, the seller wanted a Western Union money transfer to complete the purchase and it took me over a half hour to finally get to speak with a human and discover that this is a common scam. If it is a common scam, why don't any of these well know web sites and services provide a mechanism to prevent them or notify consumers?????

Here is one to Trump them all... Car #1, Located in 'Massachusetts': http://www.vettehound.com/geo/classifieds.php?a=2&b=9588 Car #2, Located in 'Oklahoma' http://www.vettehound.com/geo/classifieds.php?a=2&b=9587 Seller has 2 different corvettes in two different cities with 2 different stories, both at an incredible price! E-mail response #1: The car is still for sale. The asking price is $34,000. Has only 480 miles and is located in LINCOLN, MA. The vin # is: 1G1YY26E685109726. The car is registered on my name and the title is clear. It is in great condition, no dents or scratches. It was always garaged and the regular maintenance was done in time. It wasn't involved in any accident and has never suffered any kind of damage. Also this is a non-smoker car. I'm currently in Canada with my wife and my 2 kids, i was delegate here with my job, i'm a lawyer, but i will comeback right away if you are really interested to buy my chevy. The car is priced for a fast sale so please if you intend to apply for a loan or financing do not reply to this message! If you are interested to buy the car here you will find more pictures: https://picasaweb.google.com/101018456773554775678/2008VetteZ06# Thanks for understanding Jack S. This is the same automated response that I got for both cars. The only thing that was changed was the prices and mileage. Response #2: Due to the last buyer that had me fly home just to show him the car because he didn't really had the money for it I want to close the deal through Google Checkout (http://www.googlecheckoutus.com/overview.php ) If you are not aware of this programs you should know that it will allow you to test drive and inspect the car before paying me. You will have a 7-day inspection period to decide whether you want to keep the car or not before they release the funds to me. If you agree please subscribe your details and provide me your googlecheckout ID to start the transaction. Jack S. SCAM!!!

I almost fell for this. Buyers out there, please be careful! Hello, Sorry for the delayed response, but I'm in England right now and I have been very busy. Anyway, thank you for your interest in buying the car. The car is located in US right now and has US papers. Why is the price so low? I am going trough a divorce, and I had to move out of USA. I cannot register the car here, as it is made for USA, according to USA standards. So all that I want to do now is to sell the car at this price, because I need to sell it fast. (I already made a deposit here to buy me another). The title is clean and you will have absolutely no problems to register the car in the USA. The car has 74,559 miles, VIN 2HGEJ6675XH500317 and automatic transmission. Engine: 4 Cylinder 1.6 Liter. It is in immaculate condition, rust free, no scratch and hasn't been involved in any accident. The motor runs very well. The interior looks great. This car needs nothing. I want this transaction to go smoothly enough as I am caught in the middle of some very important events and have little time at my disposal. I already have tones of emails so I hope you understand that I need to sort them out. The price is $1,500 USD. THIS IS MY LAST PRICE. I will not negotiate the price. Also, I take in consideration only those buyers who are really interested in buying the car, to be sure that I don't waist my time with endless discussions. This way, I shall be assured of the serious intentions. So if you are interested please email me. Hi, I'm sorry but the pick up and the test drive are not available because I'm not in the country. As I told you in my first e-mail, I'm in England. Before leaving I had prearranged the deal with Google Checkout so my presence isn't necessary. The car is at the shipping company in USA, ready to be delivered with all papers ready. The shipping cost is included in the total price of the car! You have 5 days to test it and inspect the car. So if you want to make this deal I need the following details from you: full name and address shipping address After I will have all this details I will forward them to Google Checkout and I will proceed the order. Google Checkout will contact you with all the details that you need to complete this deal and also to see that I'm covered by them and that I am legit seller. Waiting your email with the requested details.

Re: 2002 Honda Accord EX-L From: gery gerr View Contact Hi, I have recently moved to Greece.

As I'm unable to travel in the near future and I don't have anyone in the US to help me with the sale I decided to make this transaction through MSN Autos.

Heres a Scam! Re: Jeep $2700 Really?‏ From: moranc78@comcast.net Sent: Wed 3/23/11 7:08 PM Hello again Like I said you before the jeep it's in great conditions ! At this moment I am Hungary(Europe) in the military base getting ready for Afghanistan. This mean that I do a special training program and I am not allowed to get out of the unit or give calls whenever I want.The jeep is already at the dep. US Army logistics in NY sealed and ready for the shipping. The shipping can't be a problem because I can do it at no cost for you. You will receive the jeep along with all the documents including title, bill of sale . If you are interested this is how it works: 1. I'll open a transaction with Google Checkout for you using your delivery details as the buyer of my jeep. The jeep is already at the U.S. Army - Military Auto Transport Dept sealed and ready to be delivered. 2. Google Checkout will send you an invoice for payment and delivery details regarding our transaction. 3. You will send the payment to Google Checkout and they will notify me about the status, USArmy - Military Auto Transport Dept will receive the confirmation of the payment and shipping will start to your location. 4. After you will receive and inspect/drive the jeep and decide to keep it, US Army Financial Dept will inform Google Checkout about that and they will forward me the funds and the deal is done. Basically Google Checkout will secure the funds until you receive and inspect the jeep. You will have 5 days inspection period. If the jeep is not like described, it will be shipped back to me on my expense and they will give you a full refund. This way you will be able to inspect the jeep before committing to buy it and I know that you have the money and you are not just fooling around. You will wire the money to Google Checkout not to me, they will keep the money safe until you will receive the jeep and send them the confirmation that you want to keep the jeep just after that they will released the money to me. If you would like to move forward with this deal send me your full name and address where you want it sent and we can start the transaction. Thank you

My husband found a GREAT deal on a 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 SLT Cummings Truck! Seller is Emille Garman who advised that her husband recently (3 months ago)had died in Iraq serving in the military. As a disabled veteran, I felt very sorry for her and her daughter and thought that maybe she was just getting rid of the truck because of to many memories. We were ready to use the Google checkout until we received the email from Google Checkout that wanted us to Western Union the money to "Google Checkout Agent" Ben Hines. This email even had a link to email Google Support if you had any questions, well I sent them a question asking why it had to go through Western Union and if Ben Hines really worked for Google. I received back a very legit looking email from "Google Checkout" (Logo and all) stating that Ben had been with the company for 6 years and that using Western Union was the prefered way to handle the transaction. Thats when we decided it probably wasn't a real deal and we were about to get scammed, so.... I called Western Union and they advised that "it was more than likely a scam" and that they would not be responsible for refunding any monies if we sent it to the people. My husband and I spent hours on Google's site trying to find a contact number which I finally found a number to Google in Silicone Valley, CA. I tried to call hoping that they would have 24/7 customer service. Yeah Right! I only got the directory and when I typed in the last name of Hines it came up with 2 people with that last name but wrong first names. I plan on calling first thing in the morning. You would think that Google would do everything in their power to sue the people who are using their trademarked name for these scams. Most companies would do it the first time someone tried to infringe on their trademark.

Just got scammed for $2375.00 on Sunday March 27, 2011. Nissan Maxima (2004) listed on Craigslist received buyer protection from Google Check out.( Looked totally real!) Rec. info to wire money to Google Agent " Jason Ishihara" in Miami Fl. Was told agent would hold money until we rec. the car. Was told the car was in another state. ( Helena, MT ) the womans email selling the car is She's selling other cars on Craigslist. Our money was wired through Western Union and picked up by this Jason person. We never rec. any car. Pics looked real good and it seemed real!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY TO ANYONE> Google Check out does not use money wires or bank transfers only credit cards. My son saved all his money for a car and now has no money and no car. BE AWARE!

03/31/2011 08:54 pm

THAT SUCKS...we checked the google check out too...looked so totally real until we saw the money gram was going to Madrid Spain!! She was close to where we live but would not let us come get or look at the vehicle. Our gal was Susan Killman [mailto:sue00543@gmail.com AND had a sob story as to why she needed to sell the vehicle...oh yeah...newly widowed, def...broke...being thrown out of her home...she had it all going on ! but had an extra $2000 to ship the vehicle directly to us.

Well...Here is the newest for you all to check out. On Craigs list, selling a 4-wheeler in Farmington NM. I have added the sad, sob story so you'll don't fall for this one either. Honestly, I'm so tired of taking it in the shorts these days! Thanks for the posts so I didn't add this one to the long list!!! The pictures and information looked legit! The email this came from is: lauraallen30@gmail.com 1st email in response to my questions: Hello, Sorry for delay.Are you still interested?The atv is still for sale My 2008 Polaris Sportsman 500 EFI 4x4 is in great shape, no engine problems, damages or hidden defects.This atv is looking like new, never been involved in any accident and is not under leasing or bank liabilities. The price is $2,500 firm and it has 175 miles. The only thing because i am selling it,it's because i divorced with my husband and after the divorce i own this atv,now as a woman i don`t need it(i don`t have driver license). I moved back home with my parents in Provo,UT 84604 and now it will be shipped from here. We will use Google Checkout for our safety.Waiting your answer today if it's possible! 2nd email response when I said I wouldn't buy something site-unseen and that I had someone in UT that could come and look at it for me if that was where it was: As i told you in my last email we will use Google Checkout in this transaction in order for both of us to be 100% protected and insured by them.I'm currently signed up for Google Checkout services and I would like to close the deal through them.If you are not aware of this program, you should know that it will allow you to test drive and inspect the atv before paying me.You will have a 5-day inspection period to decide whether you want to keep the atv or not before they release the funds to me. I just need your full name ,address and phone number so I can open a case .(with no further obligation or fees).If you agree my terms of sale,please reply with your permission so I could open a transaction with Google Checkout and move forward with this deal.

I was falling for the "I'm being deployed to Afghanistan and don't want the car sitting in a garage a whole year" scam. It was only after I asked to go see the car in person and test drive that I got the Goggle checkout, free shipping story. Unfortunately, if the price sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't legit.

This was a craigs list ad after we said we were interested but red flags went up Like I said you before the jeep it's in great conditions ! At this moment I am England(Europe) in the military base getting ready for Afghanistan. This mean that I do a special training program and I am not allowed to get out of the unit or give calls whenever I want.The jeep is already at the dep. US Army logistics in NY sealed and ready for the shipping. The shipping can't be a problem because I can do it at no cost for you. You will receive the jeep along with all the documents including title, bill of sale . If you are interested this is how it works: 1. I'll open a transaction with Google Checkout for you using your delivery details as the buyer of my jeep. The jeep is already at the U.S. Army - Military Auto Transport Dept sealed and ready to be delivered. 2. Google Checkout will send you an invoice for payment and delivery details regarding our transaction. 3. You will send the payment to Google Checkout and they will notify me about the status, USArmy - Military Auto Transport Dept will receive the confirmation of the payment and shipping will start to your location. 4. After you will receive and inspect/drive the jeep and decide to keep it, US Army Financial Dept will inform Google Checkout about that and they will forward me the funds and the deal is done. Basically Google Checkout will secure the funds until you receive and inspect the jeep. You will have 5 days inspection period. If the jeep is not like described, it will be shipped back to me on my expense and they will give you a full refund. This way you will be able to inspect the jeep before committing to buy it and I know that you have the money and you are not just fooling around. You will wire the money to Google Checkout not to me, they will keep the money safe until you will receive the jeep and send them the confirmation that you want to keep the jeep just after that they will released the money to me. If you would like to move forward with this deal send me your full name and address where you want it sent and we can start the transaction.

The car is already at the USArmy - Military Auto Transport Dept for POV(Private Owned Vehicle) in MERRICK ,NY. Price was reduced to $2,700 (URGENT SALE) as I need to sell this jeep in two weeks becasue I will leave with my platoon in another mission outside US.I'm US amry member,and now US Army give us the chance to buy some shares at BNSF RAILWAY.Co at half price and for this reason I need a fast transaction. Because it is a large transaction we will complete the deal only using an authorized third party like Google Checkout, using their Buyer Protection Program. The payment will be handling by the Google Checkout and you will benefit of 5 days inspection period (test drive) and the option to accept or reject the jeep on my expense. I'm waiting your reply if you are interested to close the deal with me and I will let you know how we will do this transaction!

My dad was just getting ready to buy an atv from that email address, apparently from Brainerd MN. He was using me to send emails back and forth asking if he could come and see the atv. I got really suspicious when she refused to call him to schedule a face to face meeting. I googled the email and ended up here. Thanks for listing that email so everyone can see that it is obviously fake. We really appreciate it.

I regret giving her my address, name and phone # but I didn't go any further thank god I found this article and comments HERE IS THIS FUCKERS EMAIL AFTER I ASK HER WHY THE PRICE IS SO LOW (my 1st email) : ****************************************** Jessica55duran@hotmail.com: I have a low price for my 2006 ACURA TL ( $ 2,700 including delivery to your home address ), because I want to sell the car very quickly. My husband died 2 months ago (he had a heart attack) and this car brings me bad memories and that's the reason I want to sell it. I along with my daughter decided to sell the house and we moved to my sister in Nebraska. Unfortunately I can't conclude this transaction personally because my work involves a lot of travelling but I left everything prepared for the sale. If you are really interested in purchasing, please email me with your details (name and address) for the shipping. ****************************************** ------------------------------------------------------------ I, RESPOND WITH THIS: Unfortunately I just can't put my trust in this knowing that I can lose my money. I thought you lived here so I could meet in person. Why didn't you sell the car before you moved ? or take the car with you and sell it where you are ? I was actually very interested in this but the only way I'd be able to buy it is if I could meet you personally. Thank you very much though, take care and sorry for your loss. ----------------------------------------------------------- ****************************************** JESSICA55DURAN RESPONDS WITH THIS: I will make the deal only trough Google Checkout, because I am a member of the Google Checkout buyer protection program and using this service you will get a 7 days testing period after delivery. During that 7 days testing period I will not be getting any money. If the vehicle is not like described, it will be shipped back on my expense and they will give you a full refund. This way you will be able to inspect the vehicle before committing to buy it and I know that you have the money and you are not just fooling around. If interested please include in your next email your contact info for shipping (name, address and #) so I can open a transaction with Google Checkout. ******************************************** I then give her my address, full name and phone #..... and then she does the google checkout thing and it sends an email to my spam and she tells me to go look at it. She also tells me all the details to the car. I still wasnt sure about this since the price seem to legit. 2006 Acura TL with only 47,000 Miles... HMMMMMM fishy SO THANK GOD I FOUND THIS THREAD BEFORE I DID ANYTHING ELSE and here is what I said after I found out to be a scam --------------------------------------------------------------- Hey there jessica hows it going? im so sad for your loss it must be so tough to lose some1 so close i was almost in tears when i heard ur story because i too lost my wife from a tragic incident so i can feel your pain. But before i do anything else im going to need your information. No, i dont want it from google checkout i want it from you personally. So im going to need your full name, adress, even if its not your house i still want it and i want to talk to you on the phone so i can verify your an actual human hehe. I Dont want you to end up being a guy or something ya know what i mean? So no i wont proceed any further until i can get that from you. If you won't comply with that than i know something is fishy here. I have read google checkout scams already and there has been numerous deals like yours and i mean brand new cars for cheap on craigslist and the people will lie saying that their significant other died just like you said. Hey i wouldnt be saying this if it werent true right? you can even check it out your self. Go on google.com. And type "google checkout scams" and you will see the same type of situation that your trying yo do using a google checkout spoof site. hahaha so ima need to at least talk to you on the phone and if you are trying to scam me then you can burn in hell with the rest of the scammers and horrible people in this world catch my drift sweety? I am way smarter then the other dumb ones that just think shit is legit when it aint. But if you don't respond then im really gonna know this was some bull shit. But matter fact i want you to research those scams and tell me why yours is so similar, can you do that sweety? For me? Please? Thank you darling it was marvelous talking to you hope to hear from u soon. Cha ching! Buh bye now Google checkout only uses credit cards not western union wires...hunny.. But if you want maybe we can start a scsm business together.. try to get the stupid ones....lets do it together baby we were meant for each other and we can write the ultimate scam out to these suckers.....hahaha!! ----------------------------------------------------------------

Beware of this contact "Ruben Karlsen" Selling a 2008 BMW -X5 White for 25k. I figured it was a scam the minute they said to use google checkout. This jerk off story centered arround hm making bad financial investements recently and he was selling the car to pay off bills. I couldnt view the car even though i told him i would fly to the location. He came up with some rediculous story that he works in a hotel in Hawaii and the car could only be viewed with the 5 days i had when the money would be ina google account! Whata looser and the other bums that work with them! Getta life!!!

I am actually in the prosess of being scammed...haha!!! Here's the original email: ________________________________________________________________________ Hi, I have a low price ( $ 2,600 including delivery to your home address ), because I want to sell the car very quickly. My husband died 2 months ago (he had a heart attack) and I have bad memory here, I along with my son decided to sell the house and we moved to my sister in Nebraska. I want to sell the car, because was to my husband and I have another car. Unfortunately I can't conclude this transaction personally because my work involves a lot of traveling but I left everything prepared for the sale. If you are really interested in purchasing, please email me with your details (name and address) for the shipping process. Mileage: 76.000 Hope to hear from you soon Karen Woosley __________________________________________________________________________ The email below explains how the "process" works: Look how this works: Regarding the payment, I will use only Google Checkout program. If you are interested this is how it works: 1. After you send me your full name, complete address (I need for shipping) and your phone number. 2. I open a transaction with Google Checkout. 3. Google Checkout will contact you with an invoice regarding our transaction. 4 You will send the payment to Google Checkout and they will notify me to ship the vehicle to your location. 5. After you will inspect/drive the vehicle and decide to keep it, Google Checkout will forward me the funds and the deal is done. All documents - title and bill of sale - will be provided along with the car. Basically Google Checkout will secure the funds until you receive and inspect the car. You will have 7 days inspection period. If the vehicle is not like described, it will be shipped back on my expense and they will give you a full refund. I'm sure it won't be the case because it's a state of art looking and working machine. So please let me know if you are still interested. I will wait your reply. _________________________________________________________________________ Here's her reply when I asked the lady if we talk on the phone... Hi The shipping will take 2-3 days and the truck will be delivered straight to your home address that you already provided. I would have called you already to speed things up but I have a talking disability because I've suffered a tracheotomy surgery just 2 weeks ago and I'm not completely recovered. I hope this won't be matter and we will be able to complete this deal. It's very hard for me right now because I can't fully express myself to people around me but I hope the situation will come to normal very soon. Until then I hope that you will understand me and not pass on this because I have this temporally disability. Thanks again Karen ___________________________________________________________________________ SO PLEASE DON'T FALL FOR THIS SCAM. HERE'S THE RULE OF THUMB FOR INTERNET TRANSACTIONS: "IF IT SOUNDS TOOOOO GOOD TO BE TRUE.....IT'S A BIIIIIIIG SCAM" I think we need to start a class action suit against craigslist.com I beleive they are responsible to a certain degree, mainly because they are not taking any seriouse actions against these scams.

Well I'm glad I found this thread. Another atv scam on craigslist. Very similar to all the others below. Here's the email I got back when I emailed the person in craigslist that was selling: Thank you for your interest in purchasing my atvs. The atvs are in perfect condition - 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 and the clear title. For this transaction I want to use G00GLE CHECK0UT because I want to provide you a fast and very secure way. They will handle the transaction for me. You will make the payment to G00GLE CHECK0UT and they will hold the money until you receive and inspect the atvs. ONLY AFTER you receive the atvs and you inspect them (you have 5 days for inspection) G00GLE CHECK0UT will release the payment to me. The inspection time period will begin as soon as you receive the atvs at your address. Meanwhile G00GLE CHECK0UT will hold the money into a trust account. So, this is not a blind transaction, you can see the atvs before you decide to buy them. This way we are both protected : i will know that i have a serious buyer who has the money to pay me and you will be able to see and inspect the atvs before buying them. The atvs was priced to sell quickly and the final price that I'm asking for it is $2800 including shipping and handling costs. My husband died in Iraq 3 months ago and I along with my daughter decided to sell the house and move to my sister. 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 atvs please send me your full name, shipping address and your phone number. G00GLE CHECK0UT will give you all the details regarding the shipping and payment. I will appreciate an answer as soon as possible. Joanne Collins

Lynn Debra (lynndebra813@hotmail.com) emailed me saying I can buy her jeep but its in Saskatchewan and she will be shipping it to me thro Google checkout. she then sent me a email from checkout.validation@cunsultant.com as Google checkout. the jeeps info was all on there and the only payment method was thro western union. so on April 11 i made a money order for $4800.00 to the Google checkout agent Elizabeth Martinez in las Vegas Nevada 6575 N Decatur blvd. 89131 usa. I was then instructed to email or fax (1-206-339-0170) a copy of the money order to them. Then Google checkout told me it will take 12-24 hours to get the jeep sent (which was being sent thro Google checkout to my place). I never heard any thing from both emails. so I got looking on the Google checkout web site and in fine print it said we do not take western union. so I tried emailing them and got no responds!! I am now out $4800.00 I am in need of some serious help!!!

Here is a string of emails I received regarding a car on Auto Trader that is presently for sale. It has to be a scam. I did not go through with this. The element of fraud I recognized was the seller stating that Google Checkout would send for bank account information. THEY DON'T DO THIS. THEY ONLY DO CREDIT CARD TRANSACTIONS. Therefore, I probably was going to get something official looking from "Google Checkout" that prompted me for the information. BEWARE OF AUTO SCAMS USING GOOGLE CHECKOUT!!! Here is the email string....sounds so familiar with others posted below. From: Chand Rampersaud Date: Thu, Apr 14, 2011 at 7:17 PM To: Hello Larry, Sorry for the late response; something came up and we had to leave immediately out of town. We wanted to let you know that the car is still available. The asking price is $ 12,999. It's a 2009 Toyota Camry HYBRID. It has 16,920 miles. The car is located in Santa Rosa, CA. Syintetic oil only. Gets over 39MPG on the road. Excellent Condition! No scratches or dents. The engine runs like a top. Clean history. Never been wrecked or involved in any kind of accident. It runs and drives very good, needs nothing! No smoker. My husband is the only owner. It comes with a clear and clean title in hand, bill of sale signed by him and notarized and all the paper work (including the original manuals and keys). We want to sell it because we are in desperate need of cash due to my husband several uninspired decisions while gambling, so we end up with a lot of debts and we are about to lose our business as well. We are also about to change our house for a cheaper one in TN and try to sell more other things. Since we only have one car, first come, first served. We had a serious buyer before and we lost about 2 weeks waiting for him but we just find out that his loan wasn't approved. We are currently signed up for a protection program offered by Google Checkout and we would like to close the deal through them. If you are not aware of this program you should know that it will allow you to test drive and inspect the car before paying us. In this way you're not buying something sight unseen. You will have a 5-day inspection period to decide whether you want to keep the car or not before they release the funds to us. If we reach an agreement, we are willing to take care of the shipping because the fee was already paid by us for the buyer that I told you about. The shipping company will not refund us in full but offered to ship the car anywhere within continental US, so it is at their warehouse and it's ready to be shipped anytime. It will be a big advantage for you if you decide to move the car to your location. Looking forward for your reply if you are interested in the car and I will send you more details about the deal or car as well. Also I only attached one photo. Please let me know if you need some more. Thanks Sandra Rampersaud ---------- ---------- From: Chand Rampersaud Date: Thu, Apr 14, 2011 at 10:37 PM Hello again Larry, Please check the attachment for photos and a full Carfax report which includes the VIN. We are out of town at the moment. The car together with all the paper work including a clear and clean title and a bill of sale signed by my husband and notarized are at the shipping company in Santa Rosa, CA in a sealed container ready to go and they will open it only in my husband presence. We want to use this service because it offers us peace of mind and it allows us to sell the car in this manner. Also closing the deal through Google Checkout will assure us that you have the money and you won't waste our time. They will hold and secure your money during the entire transaction and will release the funds to us only after you decide to keep the car. You will get a 5-day inspection period (All this time Google Checkout holds the money) and if you are not 100 % satisfied with the car you can send it back and you'll receive a full refund from Google Checkout in no time. They will charge us with the shipping fees for sending back the car (actually as I said in my previous email the whole shipping service is for free). If you agree with this process, please let us know if you have the money available and you are ready to move forward and we'll send you more details about the Google process. Regards Sandra Rampersaud From: Chand Rampersaud Date: Fri, Apr 15, 2011 at 1:33 AM Hello Larry. You need to go to Google checkout website (GoogleCheckout.com) and register with them and send us your Google ID (email address used for registration with Google Checkout), so we can start the transaction with them. They will ask you for bank to bank transfer as the payment method. They will secure the funds and send us a payment confirmation, so the shipping process can start right away. We can`t access the funds until you say so. You will get a 5-day inspection period starting from the day the car arrives at your door. You can have a mechanic perform a detailed inspection and also you can have a title company research the title and be sure that there are no liens or other problems with the title. The title and a bill of sale signed by my husband and notarized will arrive together with the car. At the end of the inspection period, you need to decide if you want to keep the car or not. If you’ll decide to keep it, you need to inform Google Checkout about your decision, so they can send me the money. If for any reason you will decide to send the car back, you just need to let Google Checkout know and they will refund you in no time. We`ve paid for a premium shipping service, so it should be delivered quickly. Also if you have the money available and you are ready to move forward, please send me your phone number so my husband can call you for details. Regards Sandra Rampersaud

The scam is with Google Checkout! They claim to have a "payment guarantee," then ignore that at will. I know of a small non-profit dealing with a chargeback from a scammer. Google Checkout doesn't care and has thrown their account in the hole. Also ignoring request for an Arbitration as is the right of sellers by law.

Most of these Craigs List and other scams for cars, trucks and farm tractors are using the flimsy wording and bogus promises, and written incorrect grammar with stumbling words. First off - shipping a car, truck, or tractor from Oregon to Louisiana costs thousands of dollars and the prices of these units are deceptively low, trying to lure a buyer to fall for the scam. So this must be a scam or stolen goods. Very few would sell a $10000 vehicle for $7500 less shipping cost. Here is what I do. I offer to send a copy of a certified check made out to the scammer and when the units gets to a bonded warehouse or lot, I will hand the check to the bondsman! That usually ends all communication!

Thanks for the info. It is a scam. Here are references of scams on craigslist. I saw a posting of a 1996 300ZX twin turbo for $1800.00 I jumped at the chance to buy this car immediately.

First of all I want to let you know that the car is available, it's in perfect condition, clear title, free of encumbrances and liens. I bought it when I was serving in Fort Stewart, GA. I have dropped my price to $1800 (purchase price) since this is an urgent sale and I need to sell it before 20 April, when I will be deployed in Iraq with my company replacing the troops scheduled to come home. I have decided to use Google Checkout for this sale . The car is already at our Military Logistic Department form Fort Stewart, U.S. Army, crated and ready to go. The Logistic Department will deliver the car to your home. I will offer a 10 days period to inspect the car from the moment you receive it. The shipping will be free for you! I'm currently stationed in London, United Kingdom until 20 April, when I will be deployed to Iraq. This is why I must sell it before that. If you agree with my price $1800, I need your FULL NAME AND ADDRESS, so I can inform Google Checkout that I have a buyer! I will forward your details to them and then you will receive an invoice(with no further obligations or fees). Like this you’ll be able to talk with them directly and ask all you want to know.

Damn it. I had a feeling the deal I was considering was a scam. It was just way too good to be true. Anyone else seem to notice that the "Seller" is almost ALWAYS a woman who needs or has moved and is no longer near the car. Anyways this is the fuck that tried to scam me. http://washington.backpage.com/AutosForSale/5866-2007-ford-mustang-gt/6575178 Hello , My name is Rachel , I am emailing you regarding the 2007 Ford Mustang GT that I have for sale. I sell at this price($2,400.00 )because i just finished the divorce with my husband. When the divorce has finished i received this car.Now as a women i don't need. This car is in excellent working conditions, no scratches, flaws or any kind of damage, slightly used in 100% working and looking conditions and comes with a clear title, 3 months transferable warranty. From the beginning you have to know that for the payment I request ONLY secure pay, I prefer the payment to be done using Google Checkout services. We will use a safe payment method because I am affiliated at Google Checkout and I have a purchase protection account.The final price that I want for this car is $2,400.00 including shipping and handling.You will receive with the car : keys,title, all the receipts that I have from it, owner's manual, service manual, and also a sale receipt signed at a legal attorney stating that I'm selling you this car . When it arrives, you must have your ID (preferably 2 forms of identification ) and sign for receiving. If you are interested in buying it please provide me your full name and address so I can initiate the deal through Google Checkout . I will wait your answer(if you are interested to buy) very soon!! Thank you and have a nice day Rachel Erion . Second email, Hello again (I won't put my name but all of a sudden the "seller" knew my name even though I had only given part of me name the first time) , Thank you for still being interested in buying my car,I will respond your inquires, but first let me explain you how the whole process for this transaction will work: I'm really sorry for you but i think is to late for inspection because I'm not in the country for the moment (like you know i just finished the divorce with my husband and i have moved to my parents home in Madrid/ Spain for a while.) I want to tell you that we will use Google Checkout in this transaction in order for both of us to be 100% protected and insured by them, Google Checkout will supervise over our transaction. They will take care of the shipping (The car is already at the shipping company with all papers and documents ready to be shipped) and all the small details. You will get the car and you will have 15 calendar days return-policy in which you can decide if you will buy the car or not. In the inspection period you can test the vehicle, go with the vehicle at your local mechanic for inspection, but do not put more then 200 miles on it.After your inspection period (15 calendar days) In case you won't like the car (not your case) you will notify Google Checkout and you will send the car back on my expense, if you want to keep it you will also announce Google Checkout, you will send the funds (payment method and all the details will be set up by Google Checkout ) and you will keep the car.Please get back to me with your FULL NAME & FULL ADDRESS and PHONE NUMBER so i can forward your details to Google Checkout in order for you to receive your purchase invoice and if you will agree with what will find in the invoice will go from there. Google Checkout will contact you with an invoice and they will explain you how to start this transaction all the details and instructions for this transaction will be found in the invoice and you will see this transaction is legit. If you will disagree with the transaction proposed by Google Checkout, you can simply refuse to continue with the transaction and would be no problem, I still have a few offers left. PS : Don't forget to send me your FULL NAME & FULL ADDRESS if you are really interested in this car. And also I will need them for further collaboration regarding the transaction and better explanation of the whole process! Thank you for all and if you have other questions please reply to my email.

Okay. I just can't thank you all enough. Someone on everycarlisted.com wrote: "I sealed the car in an US Air Force warehouse in Boise, ID. It is ready to be shipped by USAF Air Cargo, so it will cost me nothing. You will get it to the nearest airport in your area. A truck service I have arranged will deliver it to your place. The delivery will be door-to-door, at your exact location, so you will not have to pick up the car yourself. so the VIN # is WMWRC33412TC31778, the current mileage is 26,924. I attached you some more pics with the car. Look how it works: 1. I will contact Google Checkout and give all the info about this deal. 2. They will email us the forms which are needed for our deal. 3. I will send the car to your location and you will send the money at Google Checkout. 4. After you will inspect the car and decide to keep it, Google Checkout will forward the funds to me. If the car is not suitable for you from any reason, your money will be fully refundable and I will take the car back on my cost. I'm sure it won't be the case because it's a state of art looking and working machine. Anyway, you will have 7 days from the time you receive the car to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not. If you wish to purchase it please provide me Your Full Name and Your Complete Address so I can initiate the deal through Google Checkout. Also, let me know if there's something else you need to know. Thanks" It was way underpriced and in perfect condition and he was selling it "for personal reasons" and is in Guam. He said he would be back in my area June 12th and did not acknowledge that I wrote that I needed to see the car first.

Thank you for your interest in purchasing the jet skis I have for sale. The units are in perfect working condition, garage kept, with nothing mechanically wrong - like new! They have only 59 hours on them. 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 Google Checkout because I want to have a smooth and fast transaction . If you decide to buy the jet skis you will have to send the payment to Google Checkout and they will hold the money into a trust account until you receive and inspect the jet skis and trailer. ONLY AFTER you receive the units and you inspect them (for 5 days) they will release the payment to me. This is a fast and safe escrow transaction. The inspection time period will begin as soon as you receive the jet skis at your requested address. During all this time Google Checkout will hold the money into a trust account. So, this is not a blind transaction, you can see the jet skis before decided to buy them. In this way we are both protected. The final price is $ 2,830 with shipping costs and insurance included. The price is low because I want to sell the jet skis 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 Collin, TX. I can't afford to take days off my work for this sale so I'm trying to sell them online. If you are really interested in purchasing the jet skis please send me your full name, shipping address and your phone number. Google Checkout will notify you all the details about the shipping and payment. I will appreciate an answer as soon as possible .

Here is how they tried to get me on Craigslist, I am located in Frederick, MD the "car" is in Utah How many miles? Hello and sorry for delay, Thank you for your interest in purchasing my 2004 Acura TL 4DR SDN 3.2L, automatic, 84,283 miles, clean title. First of all I want to let you know that the car is available, it's in perfect working condition, has been properly maintained, never been abused or involved in an accident. I have decided to sell it for $2400 and the buyer will receive it with all papers and receipts that he needs to register it so if you buy it you don't have to worry about the paperwork. Also you will have 5 days to inspect and test after you receive it. If you decide to buy it you will have 5 days to inspect and test the car after you receive it. It was my fathers's but unfortunately he can't enjoy it anymore as he died. I moved back in Provo,UT where I was born and now it will be shipped from here. Please get back to me for more photos and only if you want to buy it. Thank you, Shannon Roberts would be very interested in buying the car. Am I understanding correctly that the car is in Utah? It doesnt really make sense to me to ship the car this far. I love the TL and always have. I am concerned that this deal is to good to be true. I appreciate your situation with this being your fathers car. What would you require since I am interested ? Thanks The car is located in Provo,UT as I told you from my first email but my brother in law will use his discount to help me with shipping so I have to pay a small amount for it. He have a business with sewing machines and is using the shipping company from 4 years. The total amount that you will have to pay for it will be $2400 as this is the price that I expect to sell it. The inspection period will be set to 5 days and I think is enough for you to make a decision about the car.I also want to inform you that I am entertaining another 2 offers for it at this moment so please let me know your decision as soon as possible to know what to do.One of them is waiting for a loan and will get in touch with me tomorrow if he can buy it or not and the other one have only $2200 to buy it. Sorry this deal is a little too good to be true you could easily sell that car there without any difficulty. The price is firm $2400 even you come to pick it up even you want it shipped. I think is more then fair that you pay $2400 as shipping is my responsibility. We will use Google Checkout for this transaction so both of us will be protected and insured by them. If you are not aware of this program, you should know that it will allow you to test drive and inspect the car before paying me. I only need your full name and address so I can open a case .(with no further obligation or fees). You will have a 5-day inspection period to decide if you want to keep the car or not before they release the funds to me.I think 5 days is enough for you to make a decision if you keep the car or not. If you wont like my car then you notify Google Checkout and send it back. Thank you, Shannon No thanks scam artist... I will be posting your lies to prevent someone else from falling prey

Thanks Richie for your post...it was very similar to this fishy sap story by the name Kimberly Brooks and her "2003 Mazda Mazda6 Sedan.Affordable!" Ad on Kijiji. I thought this seemed too good to be true also.... Hi I'm very interested in your car. What would it need for safety/etest? Thanks, Hi, My 2003 Mazda6 Sedan with only 131 600 kms is in excellent condition,non smoker,no liens or loans,it has been very well maintained.The exterior is in great shape , the interior looks great with no rips or tears in the seating. The car is Certified and E-tested.Automatic transmission.No accidents.Recently serviced and no mechanical problems. I am selling it at this price ($2,800) because I just went through a divorce with my ex-husband and when it has finished, I remained the owner of this car. I have some financial problems right now because my daughter's health situation is precarious , so I want to sell it asap and a fast sale can be done only at a low price. The transaction will be made through Google Checkout for the safety of both of us. If you're interested to purchase just email me with your full name,shipping address include phone number , so I can notify Google Checkout that you are selected as my buyer and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure. Thanks, Kimberly Hi, First off, I'm sorry to hear about your situation. I have no idea what "google checkout" is and would like to view and test drive the car before purchasing it. I live in Toronto also, so it would be easy to make arrangements. If after viewing all looks well, we can write up an agreement for payment. I have cash, but if you wish to go through google for whatever reason, I am open to it. Please call me to set up a time....XXXXXXX Thank you. Hi again, Unfortunately that is not possible because the car is now in Google Checkout's custody at their shipping company sealed with all the papers( ownership, insurance papers etc). The delivery process has been paid by me and I want to finish this deal through Google Checkout . This way we can both be protected and insured. As you can see, you will receive the car in max 2 days and you will have the chance to inspect it for 10 days. In the inspection period you can test the car or go with it at your local mechanic for inspection .The car will be delivered directly to your requested address as soon as Google Checkout will have the payment confirmation from you. In case you won`t be satisfied, you can cancel the payment and ship the car back on my expense. If you are interested in this type of transaction I will need your full name , full shipping address so I can notify Google Checkout that you are selected as my buyer and they will contact you soon to explain the entire process.If not, your loss. Thanks , Kimberly

These scammers are thick as planks. I picked this particular one as a fraud the minute I saw the ad for a $40,000 motorhome with NO phone contact details.... so I emailed and asked for details. This is the reply I got: From: Lisa McLean Sent: Tue, 26 April, 2011 12:50:19 AM Subject: RE: 2008 Winnebago Leisure Seeker Automatic $40.000 Hi, Thank you for your interest.The motorhome is still for sale,the price that i am asking is $40,000,hi has no scratches or any kind of damage,never had accidents,it has no finance over the motorhome. I had a buyer from Darwin but his loan was not approved and now the motorhome is still for sale. Delivery is already paid and as I explained my buyer couldn't get the loan after I made the arrangements to deliver the motorhome, and the delivery company won't refund me, but I am able to deliver the motorhome anywhere in Australia. As I travel a lot with my job and I can't do this transaction personally but the transaction will be made through Google Checkout buyer protection program for our own safety checkout.google.com. I have to let you know that I want a quick deal because I have some financial problems right now. If you want to buy it I just need your full name and address so I can open a case. You must know that Google Checkout will contact you without any obligation to buy it or fees. Thank you, Lisa _________ when I insisted on being provided the VIN and rego details, what appears to be standard reply was: Hi again, Thank you for your interest. As I told you in my first message I travel a lot with my job so I can't meet you in person, so this is the reason why I chose to sell my car over the Internet. I have a contract with Google Checkout so this deal must go through them. The paper and motorhome are already at the delivery company in Darwin,sealed and ready for delivery and i don't know the VIN and Engine No. Here is how it will work. First of all I will need your full name and full delivery address. After I will receive the info, I will forward them to Google Checkout. They will process your info and send us both invoices. Google Checkout will send you all the details on how to make a refundable payment. They will hold the funds until the motorhome is delivered to you, inspected and you confirm that you received the motorhome in the described condition. According with the Google Checkout you have 7 days from the time you receive the motorhome to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not. If for any reason you won't like the car (but I assure this won't happen) Google Checkout will refund the money and I will instruct the delivery company to store the motorhome until I will find a new buyer so it's not necessary to deliver it back to me. If you wish to go further, please send me the necessary info so that we can proceed. I am looking forward to hear from you. Thank you again Lisa _________ Now I am bored playing with my scammer... giving him/her false hope that they have a sucker on the hook... so I replied to them with a link to this thread. I hope they, like you, enjoy reading this post. Care to all - if it looks too good to be true, it very likely is.. you see, you no buy ;)

It is manufactured in 2009 has only 1022 miles and is in excellent running condition. I have all the documents and service records. I have decided to sell it for $2000 and the buyer will receive it with all papers and receipts that he needs to register it so if you buy it you don't have to worry about the paperwork. Also you will have 5 days to inspect and test after you receive it. I am in possession of this bike from my father who unfortunately can't enjoy it anymore as he died. I moved back where I was born in Provo,UT and now it will be shipped from here. Please get back to me for more photos only if you want to buy it. Thank you,ShannonI said:Sorry about the loss of your father. im willing to buy it; but is it in UT or NY kind of confused? HOw do i pay you for it and how am i guaranteed the bike. will i be paying for the shipping from UT? if it is easier for you to call me and explain it please feel free to. personally i would feel a lot more "safe" if i could talk to a person, just to many people trying to scam a person now-a-days...Reply: The bike is located in Provo,UT as I told in my first email but my brother-in-law will use his discount to help me with shipping. I will have to pay a small amount for it. He own a business with sewing machines and he is using the shipping company from 3 years. The total amount that you will have to pay for it will be $2200 as this is the price that I expect to sell. The inspection period will be set to 5 days and I think is enough for you to make a decision about the bike.I also want to inform you that I am entertaining another 2 offers for it at this moment so please let me know your decision as soon as possible to know what to do.One of them is waiting for a loan and will get in touch with me tomorrow if he can buy it or not and the other one have only $2000 to buy it. Here you can see more photos: http://s1110.photobucket.com/albums/h446/shannondavis1/ Thank you,ShannonME:Okay deal ill buy it for that amount tell me how to pay i have the money now no loan needed for me.ThanksReply: The bike is located in Provo,UT as I told in my first email but my brother-in-law will use his discount to help me with shipping.

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE ME TO PAY YOU! Thank youReply:The price is firm $2200 even you come to pick it up even you want it shipped. I think is more then fair that you pay $2200 as shipping is my responsibility.We will use Google Checkout for this transaction so both of us will be protected and insured by them. If you are not aware of this program, you should know that it will allow you to test drive and inspect the bike before paying me. I only need your full name and address so I can open a case .(with no further obligation or fees). You will have a 5-days inspection period to decide whether you want to keep the bike or not before they release the funds to me.I think 5 days is enough for you to make a decision if you keep the bike or not. If you wont like my bike then you notify Google Checkout and send it back on my cost.ME:LOL nice you almost HAD me So the first red flag was you sent me the same email twice when i investigated i found::: your pics the street name is in the background and their is no Rutger st in Provo, UT nor in GA where i googled you email address and said you were from Hogansvill,GA 206 A East Main St. no facebook page, well their is but with 1 friend. SO thanks to all of you i found that this person is fake Shannon Davis, email:shannondavis@bellsouth.net craigslist#: sale-eaa9e-2369210994@craigslist:disqus .org 2009 HONDA CBR600RR Red and Black!!!

 Amazing! I almost fell for this scammer, with a supposed address in Windham, CT. If you compare the text, it is identical  except for the Collin, TX address. Even had pictures of two jet skis. The price of 2,980 was just too good to be true.  2008 250x PWCs would sell for around $8000 each, ($16,000)    Thank you for your interest in purchasing the jet skis I have for sale. The units are in perfect working condition, garage kept, with nothing mechanically wrong - like new!  They have only 59 hours on them. 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 Google Checkout because I want to have a smooth and fast transaction . If you decide to buy the jet skis you will have to send the payment to Google Checkout and they will hold the money into a trust account until you receive and inspect the jet skis and trailer. ONLY AFTER you receive the units and you inspect them (for 5 days) they will release the payment to me. This is a fast and safe escrow transaction. The inspection time period will begin as soon as you receive the jet skis at your requested address. During all this time Google Checkout will hold the money into a trust account. So, this is not a blind transaction, you can see the jet skis before decided to buy them. In this way we are both protected. The final price is $ 2,980 with shipping costs and insurance included. The price is low because I want to sell the jet skis 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 Miami, FL.  I can't afford to take days off my work for this sale so I'm trying to sell them online.If you are really interested in purchasing the jet skis please send me your full name, shipping address and your phone number. Google Checkout will notify you all the details about the shipping and payment. I will appreciate an answer as soon as possible .  Best Regards!

here is my story for a pontoon, seemed ok to start with buy then I got really suspicious and googled ''scams with google checkout'' and ended up here. Seems like the scammers are overseas...thanks to this website I did not lose a penny.The boat is already at the shipping company sealed and ready for the shipping.I have a contract with Google Checkout so this deal must go through them. I'm very busy with my job and I'm left out of the town so I can't meet in person with you so this is the reason why I chose to sell my boat over the internet. According with  the Google Checkout you have 5 days from the time you receive the boat to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not.I was supposed to ship the boat to another buyer, then he told me that he found another boat so he was no longer interested. He already paid the shipping charges.The shipping is free I will take care of it and I will send you the boat for inspection along with all the documents( the title, owner's manual, 2 sets of keys, service records, and of course the bill of sale notarized and signed by me).Here is how it will work:1.First of all I will need  the following details from you:- Full Name- Full Shipping Address2.After I will receive the details from you, I will forward them to Google Checkout.3.After they will process your info, they will send us both invoices. The invoice will send you the details on how to make a refundable payment.4.Google Checkout will contact me and I will ship the boat to you. After you receive the boat you will have 5 days to test, verify and do whatever you need to the boat. If you will buy, then I will receive the payment details from Google Checkout so that I can pick up the money.5.If you will decide that you will not buy the boat,  Google Checkout will refund the money and I will have the shipping company come pick up my boat. If you wish to make the transaction, please send me the necessary info so that we can proceed. I look forward to hear from you.Thank youOn 5/16/2011 7:18 PM, wrote:Hello again Kelly, I'm sorry to hear of your divorce. Hope it's for the best. You had included the shipping and handling by mistake I believe. I will take care of the shipping and handling, I would pick it up as soon as you are available. All I would need I guess is a copy of both titles of the trailer and the boat. The boat looks in very good condition and am looking forward to seeing it. this is my firs boat, it probably was ment to be.The google check out seems ok, I could also pay by wired transfer direct to your bank or cash.Kindest regards,  > Date: Mon, 16 May 2011 07:20:16 -0700> From: spurlingkurt@aol.com> To:> Subject: Re: Classifieds Lead> > Hi,> First of all I want to thank you for your interest for my boat.

I am so happy all of you posted your problems with Google Check Out.  We almost got scammed today with a purchase of a 99 Chevy Silverado Truck.  Something just told me to check out the web and low and behold your experiences were what we were quoted regarding a  truck being delivered to our house within three days from a shipping yard, etc. etc.  People are sick, sick.  Thanks again and again

Thank you to everyone who posted information on this site. I nearly got scammed into purchasing a 1999 BMW3, the add was on Kijji. I have bought and sold often on Kijiji but this one was too good to be true. Note Google Checkout does not request you to wire money via Western Union. Cheers and Thank you all. PS, If you cant see it chances are it is not there.

Does this sound like a scam: Hi , I've previously told you,I'm currently involved in a military program, temporarily based in TX, as I'll be changing it for Afghanistan very soon. Due to military security reasons I'm restricted from leaving the unit's facility under any purpose and have strictly limited phone access. The shipping won't be a problem; military has a considerable discount, so I can handle it by myself, with no charges whatsoever on your account. The truck will be sent along with all its documents including title, bill of sale, 2 sets of keys, full service records and everything else you'll need. Because it's such a large transaction, I'd suggest using an authorized third party, Google Checkout for instance. I've done some research and that's the safest way to do it. That's why, I've taken the liberty to prearrange things with them, using their escrow Google Checkout. I thought you might want to see it there, so I've asked them to allow viewers to inspect the truck; but their reply was: "We are not a showroom!" No worries cause I'll grant you a 5 days inspection period (to test drive it) from the moment you receive it, before Google Checkout escrow releases your money to me. The truck is located in their warehouse in TX (ready for delivery). If you are determined in buying the truck, please send me an email with your name and shipping address. I will post the transaction mentioning the vehicle details, the price etc on Google Checkout website and confirm you as the buyer. After the transaction is processed they will send you the invoice explaining the exact procedure...it's quite simple. Thank you

I also recently experienced a scam similar to all of those listed below, except it dealt with a horse trailer, not automobiles.  Because I have been looking for quite some time I have run across several people offering trailers for sale at a great price only to find out the trailer is not where it is advertised and they are in training (usually in TX) and will be shipped out within the next 3 days.  After all of that this sent up red flags for me right away, but I responded anyway.  The minute I read Google check-out I knew it was another scam.  I have included our correspondence below to protect others from this sort of thing.  The most recent email is first and the last email is the original response from this scammer.  Of course when I insisted on dealing in person I received no further response.  If I do finally get a reply I think I will just include a link to this website as my response.        Harald, I am in Arvada and interested in the trailer because of its close proximity to where I am currently living.  Due to the large amount of scams, specifically those posing as active duty soldiers urgently selling possessions before they ship out, I must insist on doing everything in person.  If the trailer is in Fort Carson, CO, I can come inspect it myself within the next 3 days.  If it is as presented in the pictures and the electrical works, I do have sufficient funds to pay in cash.  This way you don't have to worry about bad checks clearing. I would require clear title be signed over to me at that time.  This would be a final sale and you would be released from any liability once the sale is complete.  Because I am only approximately 2 hours from your location I see no reason to not do this transaction in person, or deal with shipping. If this is satisfactory to you please let me know and I will make arrangements to come look at the trailer. Sincerely,April    On Thu, May 26, 2011 at 4:36 PM, Harald Klein wrote: I'm currently on active duty in the 5th PSYOP BN Det. and at this point and time I'm stationed in Fort Carson CO.

Due to the urgent nature of sale, the acquisition process will be conducted by Google Checkout they basically provide a secure platform designed to facilitate the payment transfer between buyer and seller. To eliminate any concerns, you will have a 10 days inspection period to arrange your own independent inspection prior purchase approval. After this period ends, if you decide not to keep the trailer, shipping back will be my concern.

Hi, I have just found this site, after receiving the e-mail below about a prius.  Apperas that I have just avoided being scammed here in the UK. Victoria. Victoria, I bought this car from UK and it is still registered there so you don't have to pay any import taxes or any other fees.Before I complete shipping I will notarize the bill of sale and this bill will be sent along with the car.Here is the REG and vin if you need to check the car:REG- LS09DZWVIN- JTDKB20U007878522Due to the fact that i am located outside UK and we can not deal in person,i`ve looked over the internet to find a solution for this and i found out that Google has a program that is created especially for international transactions that protects both of us called "Google Checkout".You will send the funds to Google and they will keep the money until you receive the vehicle and test it.In this way both buyer and seller are 100% covered during the steps of this transaction.They will hold and insure your money until receipt of the car in good condition. That is how their service is working. As far as the seller concerns, i will be glad to know that they are in possession of the funds during the delivery period.You will be given a 15 days inspection period from the day you receive the car at home( i will ship it to your address insured for full value to you )..If you decide to keep the car, then you will have to authorize Google to release the funds to me, and the transaction is complete.If the vehicle is not as described ( perfect interior,exterior,mechanical condition ), you will be able to send the vehicle back through the same shipping company ( return postage at my expense ), and ask Google Checkout to return the money to you.If you need to read more about the google service visit http://checkout.google.co.uk.services-google.co.uk/index.htm?Affid=1981&.gx=1&.tm=1272638128&.rand=6crrro8praqle .If you wish ti buy it please sign up for an account at : http://checkout.google.co.uk.services-google.co.uk/signup.php?continue=https%3A%2F%2Fcheckout.google.com%2FbuyerCreateAccount and provide me with the email address you used to create the accountI will be waiting for your reply as soon as possible RegardsGualterio

From: mik3d3bbois@hotmail.comTo: ************** Subject: Two 2008 Seadoo RXP-X Supercharged with Trailer 73 & 80 Hrs 255hp RXPXDate: Wed, 1 Jun 2011 16:21:12 +0000Hi,        Sorry for this late reply but I was unable to check my e-mail until now. The Seadoo are in good running condition,works great and the maintenance is extremely cheap. There is no lien on them,no monthly payments just the final price $3200 (shipping and title transfer fees included).  There is a reason for selling them at such a low price but it's just something personal that has nothing to do with the Seadoo's condition and I'm not willing to discuss it, so please don't ask. I would like to use Google Checkout to handle this transaction for both our safety and comfort because unfortunately I can't conclude this transaction personally...my work involves a lot of traveling so I left everything prepared for the sale... I've left the Seadoo in the custody of Google Checkout and they will take care of the shipping and payment.. If you are really interested in purchasing, please email me and I will give you more details. If you really want the Seadoo, I am waiting for your reply. I want to sell them ASAP.Two 2008 Seadoo RXP-X Supercharged with Trailer 73 & 80 Hrs 255hp RXPXhttp://s1115.photobucket.com/albums/k548/mik3d3bbois/Thank youMike

I received this email about a motorcycle I inquired about on Cycle Trader. Sorry for the late response; something came up and we had to leave immediately out of town. We wanted to let you know that the bike is still available. The asking price is $7,500. It's a 2008 Harley-Davidson CVO ULTRA CLASSIC FLHTCUSE3. The bike is located in Saint Paul, MN. This bike comes with only 8,963 miles. THIS LIKE NEW 2008 HARLEY DAVIDSON FLHTCUSE3 FUEL INJECTED 110ci SCREAMIN EAGLE CVO 105th ANNIVERSARY EDITION ULTRA CLASSIC TO MARKET.  THEY ONLY MADE 1800 OF THESE LIMITED PRODUCTION SCREAMIN EAGLES IN THE 105TH ANNIVERSARY PAINT SCHEME AND THIS BIKE IS # 115. THIS HARLEY IS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING.THIS BIKE COMES WITH THE FACTORY USER MANUALS, LEATHER USER MANUAL HOLDERS, NAVIGATION DISC, TWO KEYLESS ENTRY IGNITION KEYS, TWO SECURITY REMOTES, CARRY-OUT TOURING TRAVEL BAGS, TRICKLE BATTERY CHARGER, EFI FACE TUNER KIT AND THE FACTORY "CVO" GOLD KEY WITH BOX. This bike is adult ridden, never abused, garage kept, and always serviced. This bike is in excellent condition. This bike rides excellent with no issues. There are absolutely no issues with engine. There is absolutely nothing due to the bike at this time, ready to ride. It comes with 2 master keys and original manuals. We've posted the bike for sale all over the US (nation-wide ad), so you may see it at another location. This is a selling package for more exposure.I have been overwhelmed by the number of e-mails I have received from interested buyers.We want to sell it because we are in desperate need of cash due to my husband several uninspired decisions while gambling, so we end up with a lot of debts and we are about to lose our business as well. We are also about to change our house for a cheaper one and try to sell more other things. Since we only have one bike, first come, first served.We had a serious buyer before and we lost about 2 weeks waiting for him but we just find out that his loan wasn't approved. We are currently signed up for a protection program offered by Google Checkout and we would like to close the deal through them. If you are not aware of this program you should know that it will allow you to test drive and inspect the bike before paying us. In this way you're not buying something sight unseen. You will have a 7-day inspection period to decide whether you want to keep the bike or not before they release the funds to us. If we reach an agreement, we are willing to take care of the shipping because the fee was already paid by us for the buyer that I told you about. The shipping company will not refund us in full but offered to ship the bike anywhere within continental US, so it is at their warehouse and it's ready to be shipped anytime. It will be a big advantage for you if you decide to move the bike to your location.Looking forward for your reply if you are interested in the bike and I will send you more details about the deal or bike as well. Also I only attached one photo. Please let me know if you need some more.Regards, Mary Mendiola

They used almost the exact same wording in the e-mail they sent me that they had in yours. Thank you again!

Not sure if this is a scam, but it sure looks like it. Hello, Thank you for your interest in my 2003 Harley-Davidson FLSTF with 13,078 miles! The general condition of my bike is excellent,very well maintained, no damages and no mechanical problems, no electrical issues. I have the title clear, under my name. The bike is already at the USArmy - Military Auto Transport Dept for POV(Privately Owned Vehicle) in Fort Lewis, WA. Price was reduced to $5,000 (URGENT SALE) as I need to sell this bike in two weeks becasue I will leave with my platoon in another mission outside US. I'm US army member,and now US Army give us the chance to buy some shares at BNSF RAILWAY.Co at half price and for this reason I need a fast transaction. Because it is a large transaction we will complete the deal only using an authorized third party like Google Checkout, using their Buyer Protection Program. The payment will be handling by Google Checkout and you will benefit of 5 days inspection period (test drive) and the option to accept or reject the bike on my expense. I'm waiting your reply if you are interested to close the deal with me and I will let you know how we will do this transaction! Thank You!

Hello, Thank you for your interest in buying my Westy. I attached you some pics. Let me tell you a few words about the van. It's a VW Westfalia full camper, in perfect condition, no need for additional repairs, never been involved in any accidents. It has 121,600 miles on the odometer. It is in very good condition with minimal wear and tear. The paint is shiny and in nice condition. The AC and the fridge works great on this van. The tires are in near new condition showing no wear. It is equipped with a 4 Cylinder engine and automatic transmission. It has a clear title ready to be signed and notarized on your name. The price I want for it is $2,400. The reason why I'm selling it so cheap (it`s real value is much higher) is because my 8 year old daughter is very sick and we need those money as soon as possible to pay her treatment, right now I don`t care about money, my daughter`s health comes first..... Also about payment and shipping I will use Google Checkout program so we can both be protected. If you're willing to make this purchase, contact me asap and I will explain all the details about the transaction. Where are you located? Thank you, Nancy

Thank you for this post. I recently was looking for software on Ebay and ran into two of these scams. The listings look like they are in the US but I feel they are from over seas. I asked a question of the seller they answered with few details and tryed to sell me something else. Next thing I know they have invoice me through Google Checkout. I never bid or agreed to purchase. Of course on Ebay and Google you can't get a person to report these scams. I am just worry about my credit because ignored the invoices and had nothing more to do with the seller. I have never had this problem with ebay before, but want be trying to buy software that way again. Thanks, Linda

I want to thank you for posting this. It saved me a lot of money. I found a posting on Kijiji.ca for a 2004 mazda 3, 65000 km and $3100. Seemed to good to be true and it got very complicated, and I asked the same thing, that I would like to see the car and she proceeded to tell me it was in the custody of google check out. So I began to research it and came across this and while there are some differences, there are a lot of the same that immediately made me back off. I'm just glad I found this before I gave any money. Here's My emails: FIRST EMAIL Hi, My 2004 Mazda3 Sport Hatchback is still available and my final price is $2,800. You should know that it has never been wrecked or damaged, the car is in excellent condition with only 65,000 km . The interior is very clean. Runs great, very smooth, meticulously maintained and it always has been garaged. Certified & E-tested. I am the original owner. I am selling it at this price because I have just been promoted at work and it's a moral obligation for everyone who gets this job to get a hybrid car, to set an example for his team and to encourage the people to pay more attention to the forest and the nature around them(I work for Greenpeace Canada). The transaction will be made through Google Checkout for the safety of both of us. In order to move forward I will need your full name, full address and phone number so I can notify Google Checkout that you are my buyer and they will contact you to explain you the entire procedure. Thanks, Tara *I replied with my info and telling her I would like to see the car and test drive it first.* this was her response. Google Checkout will handle the shipping & payment details, because the car is already in their custody at their shipping company. I notified Google Checkout but they will probably contact you in the morning with all the details. Please let me know when you will receive the invoice.  Thanks, Tara Thanks again for posting yours. I wouldn't have known differently.

First of all I'm very glad that you like the car. It runs and looks great. It has no hidden flaws, no dents, no leaks and it hasn't been involved in any crashes. I have its clear title in hand. I serve the USAF and I'm stationed at Yokota Air Base, Japan. I won't be able to leave the base until 12th of August, so I will have the car shipped to you at my expense because I benefit of various discounts.    I will pay the shipping fees and the insurance of the car.    All documents will be provided to you along with the car including the bill of sale under your name, title, service records ...    The reason I'm selling the car is of a personal nature and has nothing to do with the car at all.    I'm a serious seller and I prefer to deal only with a serious buyer that understand my situation.    The final price is $3800.Please reply if you're interested and I'll get back with more details of the car, more pictures and the VIN.Looking forward to hearing from you,V/RTech.

so I was into this car I got the same message as a couple of you DO NOT FALL FOR IT AT ALL!!! First car I looked at: Hi, first of all I want to thank you for your interest in my 2004 Honda Accord EX-L. I sell it at this price $ 2.300, because i have just finished a divorce. I have it in Washburn,TN because i live here. It has only 25200 miles. The car is paid off,clean title,i have the title in hand. The divorce finished 6 months ago and the Honda is mine now. After the divorce I was forced to buy a new house. Following the financial crisis I can't afford to pay the bank and i have decided to sell the car. My ex-husband bought it and has only been garage kept. As you can see from the pictures it is in excellent condition. It has many extras including a/c,cruise control, am/fm, trunk liner, spare is brand new, all manuals are included,2 keys,navi,leather. I had the oil changed about 2 weeks ago. This Honda runs as good as a new one and has no dings, dents, or scratches. From the beginning you have to know that for the payment I request only secure pay. I prefer the payment to be done using e Bay services (I will receive the payment only after you receive and inspect the car and only if you agree to buy it). We will use a safe payment method because I am affiliated at e Bay and I have a purchase protection account ( i hope you saw this then you contacted me ). The last price for this is $2,300, no trades, only cash and only with e bay, because I cannot sell otherwise. I will pay for shipping and handling(the loan of my previous buyer didn't get approved and he already paid the shipping costs) so there won't be any additional shipping costs). If you are interested in buying it please email me your FULL NAME and SHIPPING ADDRESS so i can get the ball rolling I will wait your answer (if you are interested to buy) very soon.

This car is in great shape (71,000 miles,vin# jthba30g255112442, Body type:  car,Engine:  6 Cylinder 3.3 Liter,Fuel type: Gasoline, Automatic Transmission). I'm the original owner. It has no damage, no scratches or dents, no hidden defects. It is in immaculate condition, meticulously maintained and hasn't been involved in any accident...I do have the title, clear, under my name. Non-smoker.My husband and I divorced last year, after the divorce I was awarded the car, I don't need it and that's why I'm selling it so cheap.The total price is $2,250 including delivery and handling. It is located in Indianapolis,IN. I recently moved here after I divorced.We can use eBay protection program for our safety and for payment I prefer to use a eBay's buyer protection plan.

Hello there,    Sorry for the delay but I can not read you reply. My 2004 Honda Civic LX has 77900 kms, excellent condition, non smoker, no scratches and has been very well maintained. The exterior is in great shape and the interior looks great with no rips or tears in the seating. No accident history . Certified and E-tested.  I am selling it at this final price ($2,800) because I have just been promoted at work as Executive Chief and it's a moral obligation for everyone who gets this job to get a Hybrid car, to set an example for her team and and encourage people to pay more attention to the forest and nature around them (I work for Greenpeace Canada). I am the 1st and only owner of this beautiful car. I want to sell it asap and a fast sale can be done only at a low price. The transaction will be made through Google Checkout for the safety of both of us. If you're interested in purchasing just email me with your full name and shipping address, including phone number, so I can notify Google Checkout that you have been selected as my buyer and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure. Always has a story behind the scam

Don't go near this one... Sorry for this late reply but I was unable to check my e-mail until now. The suv is not sold yet. It's in outstanding condition is excellent with no issues at all. Clean interior has no unpleasant odors of any kind (i.e.; pet, smoke, etc.). Exterior shines nice, color look good . It has a clear and clean title, free of all liens and encumbrances. There is no lien on it, no monthly payments just the final price $4890 (shipping and title transfer fees included). It's a non smoker suv with zero mechanical/electrical problems no damages or accidents. There is a reason for selling it's just something personal that has nothing to do with the suv's condition and I'm not willing to discuss it, so please don't ask. I already have tones of emails so I hope you understand that I need to sort them out. Also, I  take in consideration only those buyers who are really interested to buy the suv. If you are serious please email me for more info.

I looked up google scam transactions and i was thinking that this deal was to good to be true this is what he said after i told him i wanted the car. i have not purchased and nor will purchase it after i saw this website thank you all so much i could have been scammed out 2100$ Hello again, The vehicle is still available for sale and the asking price is US $2,100.Shipping is already paid and the vehicle is ready to go anywhere in the United States.The shipping arrangements have already been made before moving to UK. The payment will be done through Google Checkout. The financial part of this deal will be managed by them. They will be the 3rd, objective party involved in the transaction. This way you will actually pay for the vehicle after you will receive and test it, because Google Checkout will hold thefunds and release it to me only after you accept and confirm the delivery. After the vehicle reaches your address you will have 7 days to test it. Within this period you have to decide if you purchase it or not. If you decide to take it you will have to contact Google Checkout and let them know that, so they can release the payment to me. If you won’t like it you will have to ship it back to me within the 7 days and Google Checkout will refund you. The shipping back will be done on my own expense, but I am sure this will not be the case. Please take into consideration that I will get paid only after you receive the vehicle and make sure everything is as agreed. If you decide to buy the vehicle please provide me me your full name and the address where you want the vehicle to be delivered and I will initiate the transaction with Google Checkout. You will receive all the transaction details from them. Looking forward to doing business! Regards,

It's really sad that this person or person's are going through all this trouble to scam people out of money and Consumer Affairs needs to investigate and prosecute these people.  I just got one of those emails and mine is going straight to the police to see if they can track these people down.  If more people report fraudulent activity before the scam, less of the fraud would occur.  Beware of Kevin Lopez who's email is kevin.lopez@clanair.net

How about a 1967 Corvette convertible, one owner, 427, M21, never hit, 38,000 mi, silver with black, numbers matching dream for $18,550?  Who wouldn't? Yes, I bit.  For those of you unfamiliar with '67 Corvette desirability, I'll just say it would still be a steal at 3 times the price.  Long story short, I said I would come to him (in Canada) with cash so we could close deal on the spot. Well, you guessed it.  His work schedule would not permit him to face to face at this time.  Now I ask you, if you were selling something, and someone offered to bring you cash, would you not squeeze that into your busy work schedule?  GOOGLE CHECKOUT IS ONLY FOR BUSINESSES THAT ARE GOOGLE MEMBERS.  DON'T BE STUPID!!!!

I think I've got a live one selling a 2005 Toyota Camry w/ 68k for $2700  (US).  It has a Blue Book value of over %10k.  The person claimes to be a recent widower and the car was her husbands and she wants to get rid of it quickly because she moved to Nebraska and is away often.  I ofered to drive there to pick it up in two days (Sat) and she came back with an email stating she uses Google Checkout and that I'd have 7 days to approve the sale.  Then comes the email from  this address: shopping-check-out@hotmail.com; on behalf of; Your Order Details [billing@financing-department.com] which congratulated me on my order and gave me the directions for payment.  It does mention Google's Checkout Protection Service and the details.  Is there anyone I can send these emails to that would could catch these crooks???

Here's yet another one, beware of "Mark Smith" marksm35@hotmail.com :Hello,My '67 Austin-Healey 3000MKIII is still for sale. The asking price is $14,300, please note this price doesn't include shipping taxes, for an accurate cost provide me with your zip code or full address. It is located in Canada, as I recently moved here with my job. Please note it is still registered in the United States so there will be no import taxes or additional fees to pay. The car is registered on my name and the title is clear (no lien). It is in great condition, no dents or scratches. It was always garaged and the regular maintenance was done in time. It wasn't involved in any accident and has never suffered any kind of damage. Also this is a non-smoker car.I've attached you photos, they show the actual condition of it. If you have any questions regarding the car just let me know!I had a buyer offering $16,000 and I've lost about 2 weeks waiting for him to pay just to find out in the end that his loan wasn't approved. I've lowered the price because I'm in desperate need of cash, so if you don't need a loan you can have it. I don't want to offend you, but the car is priced for a fast sale so please if you intend to apply for a loan or financing do not reply to this message!I'm currently signed up for a protection program offered by Google Checkout and I would like to close the deal through them. If you are not aware of this program you should know that it will allow you to test drive and inspect the car before paying me. You will have a 5 days inspection period to decide whether you want to keep it or not before they release the funds to me.I look forward hearing from you

This is what the lady I tried to buy the car from wrote - Like you said the deal was too good to be true. She also stated that the car belonged to her deceased son, so please dont fall for it.  .I decided to explain you how the transaction works in a single mail ,so read this email carefully in order for you to understand the transaction. We will use only Google Checkout to close the transaction.I am out of the country with my work right now, but the car is in Google Checkout's custody at their shipping company sealed with all the papers(title signed by me, ownership, insurance papers etc) in Louisville, KY. The delivery process has been paid by me and I want to finish this deal through Google Checkout . This way we can both be protected and insured.The payment will be handled by Google Checkout.You will receive the car in max 2 days and you will have the chance to inspect it for 5 days. In the inspection period you can test the car or go with it at your local mechanic for inspection .The car will be delivered directly to your requested address as soon as Google Checkout will have the payment confirmation from you. In case you won`t be satisfied, you can cancel the payment and ship the car back on my expense. Email me your full name , full shipping address so I can notify Google Checkout that you are selected as my buyer and they will contact you . Thanks

Well i almost fell for a similar scam. A female named Amanda Matthews was selling a Honda Goldwing valued at around 15k for 2800.oo  on Craigslist.she said that she was a Medic in the military and was going back to Afgainistan for a year and had just gone throught a divorce and was needing to sell the bike I thought it all sounded good  until I found out that the bike was in Farmville NY and she would pay shipping on the bike using her military discount. She wanted me to use google checkout to verify that I had the funding for the bike. She also said that the long wait between emails was due to the top secret stuff going own with her diployment.  Her E-mail is csinourse@att.net I told her that if she ships it to me COD then we would do business.  Still waiting to hear back he messages seem to come about 450 am.  So if you can't physically see it and its from Craigslist  don't buy it, its probably a scam.

I almost fell for a scam.  A woman by the name of Georgette Banfield is selling a 2008 Yamaha Grizzly 700cc for $2,400.  (A good deal)    They wanted me to send them the money through Western Union and then they would ship me the ATV from Montreal where the ATV was being held by Google Checkout.  The money was to be sent to an Anthony Wells @ 58 Carter Lane  in London, England???   Kinda fishy wouldn't you say?

I just almost got scammed.   2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee  There is no 7 day inspections period and it is up to the seller to refund.  Look at the bottom of the ad they are hacking into other (real dealers) ads.I'm sorry for my late reply.I priced the Jeep to sell fast because I am not able to drive it due to some health  problems.I had a stroke some time ago and I'm taking phisical therapy and my insurance doesn't cover everything. The Jeep is in great condition,you will not have any problems with it,it was kept it like a baby. it never had any mechanical or electrical problems,no accidents,clear title. The price is $2600. Right now I`m in Lincoln,ME (the Jeep is with me) because I moved here so I can get better help. I want the transaction to be handled trough Google Checkout because they offer protection both for buyer and seller.You will make the payment to Google Checkout and they will keep the money in a secure bank account until you will receive and inspect the Jeep. You will have  7 days to inspect it. If the Jeep is not as described it will be shipped back on my expense and Google Checkout will give you a full refund. This way, you will be able to inspect the vehicle before committing to buy it and I will know that you have the money and that you are serious about this purchase.  I just need your full name, full address and phone number so Google Checkout can send you the invoice in which you'll find out how to make this transaction. I was supposed to ship the Jeep to another buyer, but he told me that his bank did not approve the loan. He already paid the shipping charges. The shipping is free, I will take care of it and I will send the Jeep with all the papers (title, vehicle registration, transfer papers and a bill of sale on your name). You will get a 7 days inspection period after delivery. During that 7 days inspection period I will not be getting any money. If you want to buy it, please send me the necessary information so we can proceed. Thank you Linda

my gut was telling me this was a scam im not sure so i did the research and it lead me onto this site and after reading alot of peoples storys makes me want to find them and beat the shit out of them. im not sure but right now on craiglist they are selling a 2002 honda accord for only $2000 her name is rita frost the email is rita36gmx.com thisis what she send me ....           Hello,  only me and my husband got the keys from the house where the car is garaged that means I must be there in person to view and test drive the car. As you know I am in Canada and because craigslist doesn't have a protection program, to move forward with the deal I wish to use Google CheckOut for protection . They also give an inspection period we must agree on. This means to me you are a serious buyer, I mean ,I wont come all the way back home and you wont show up. I hope you understand my reasons and agree with me. If you are not satisfied with the car after we meet and test drive it, you just notify google checkout about it and the transaction will be canceled. Is very simple and secure. You must send me your full name and address,so I can start the transaction with Google CheckOut. Google will email you the transaction details and the steps on how to complete the transaction. I am waiting for your details to proceed.

Have been shopping online for a used vehicle for sometime now and found a vehicle that was just to good to be true.  Was recently contacted by this so called person Maria and I am glad I checked the email address resulting in finding this site as I almost fell for the scam and it just seemed very fishy with the process of Google Checkout.

The following exchange just happened. I am thankful for all of the insight and sharing of this information. Hi again,Sorry for the long email I have tried to touch all bases. As I've previously told you, I'm currently involved in a military program. Due to military security reasons I'm restricted from leaving the unit's facility under any purpose and have strictly limited phone access. The shipping won't be a problem; military has a considerable discount, so I can handle it by myself, with no charges whatsoever on your account. The financial part of this sale will be managed by Google Checkout. The bike is currently at the Google Checkout headquarter in NY and will be shipped to the buyer's address for a 5 days inspection period (shipping 48-72 hrs).Bike is in Farmingville, NY. Sale price is $2800.Here is how  GoogleCheckout it will work:1.First of all I will need the following details from you:- Full Name- Full Shipping Address- Phone Number -  required by the shipping company, they will call you with delivery/pickup instructions 1 day ahead so you can communicate what time schedule work best for your to receive the item.2. After I will receive the details from you, I'll ask them to fill you in with the transaction details. Google Checkout will contact you with simple, easy to follow step by step guidelines. So, this is not a blind transaction, you can see the bike before you decide to buy. This way we are both protected: i will know that i have a serious buyer who has the money to pay me and you will be able to see and inspect the bike before buying. I look forward to your response,Senior Medic Sgt. 1st Class Amanda Matthews

This is the most pathetic I have ever seen read the ad. Sorry for my late reply but i was in hospital and unable to respond. The bike it's still for sale. My 2011 Trek Bike Madone 6.9SSL 56cm is in perfect condition, with no need for additional repairs, no scratches, no damages, never been involved in any accidents, no problems at all is like a new one. The price is not negotiable $2,200.00 firm. I'm selling the bike because my 21's years old son died 2 months ago in a car accident. A drunk driver hit him and his fiancee. He was with his fiancee's car coming to our home... It was his bike and it brings me bad memories and that's the reason I want to sell it as soon as possible.

I got the exact same email. I google the lady's name and it seems legit. but i had a feeling they were using her name and not really her. SO what I did is I went to Facebook and tried to contact that "i assume" the real person , the name they are using and warned them. Facebook can be a good thing sometimes.. I'll follow up on this. This crooks need to get caught and I feel sorry for this innocent people.

Some lady on Craigslist in Atlanta is trying to sell a Toyota Avalon for way under market value - a clear sign it is a scam.  Instead of using e-bay she is trying to use Google Check out.  Be careful - she like others is willing to ship the car at no cost for inspection because she is being deployed to Iraq.   Money is sent and then no car arrives.  Never send money for a car without seeing it first.

Some lady on craigslist was trying to sell us a RZR for $2100.00.  It sounded very fishy so we got on here to see if anyone had anything to say about the seller.  I am glad we did!!!  Turns out she is from Provo, UT.  She has acquired everything in her possesion because her father has supposedly died.  We found out she is using several different names but using the same sob stories evertime.  The names she is going by are Deborah Alice, Deborah Bird, Deborah Embree, Deborah Atkins, Deborah Wilkins.  These are the only ones I have found so far.  DO NOT PURCHASE ANYTHING FROM THIS THIEF!!!!!  I am glad we saw this before going and sending this idiot our hard earned money.

Hi again, I'm currently serving on active duty in the USMC 10th PSYOP Bt. and at this point and time I'm stationed on a military facility located approximately 50 miles from Key West, FL. My battalion was assigned to the 96th Squadron CADST and scheduled for deployment in the next couple days. The vehicle is here with me, but to pick it up is essential to be here in the next 2 days. If you can't manage to come here before I'll be moved to my next duty station, the vehicle can be transported by a military carrier, delivery charges will be included in the actual selling price. Due to the urgent nature of this sale, I'd like to conclude this transaction using Google Checkout, they basically provides a secure and controlled environment that allows the payment transfer between buyer and seller. To eliminate any concerns, you will have a 10 days inspection period, prior purchase approval. After the inspection period ends and you decide not to keep the vehicle, shipping back will be my concern. If you want to proceed and you have sufficient funds to complete the transaction, please email me back with the following information. - Your Full Name and Shipping Address (Home Address, City, State, zip/Postal Code) -  Info. required by Google Checkout, they will contact you with simple, easy to follow step by step guidelines. - Your Phone Number: (Home,Mobile,Office) - Info. required by the shipping company, they will call you with delivery/pickup instructions 1 day ahead so you can communicate what time schedule works best for you to receive the vehicle. I look forward to your response, Brandon Roberts

My son (starving college student) found a very nice looking used car in some auto trader magazine for a price that seems too good to be true...the seller states that she has just moved from Phoenix after the death of her husband.  She says she now lives with relatives in a State hundreds of miles away.  She emailed my son telling him that she will only sell the vehicle through Google Checkout, where she will ship the car to AZ on her dime, he will have 1 week to inspect the car, and if it's OK, he can buy ir (release the funds) if he isn't happy with the car, she will send someone to pick it up. How does Google Checkout operate for such a transaction?

08/31/2011 07:56 pm

I recently found this one... advertised on several different Craigslist sites, for different cities - its for a 2002 coleman caravan camper, Woman dealt with says she lives in Provo, UT - Deborah Robinson and that her dad died. When I informed that I was interested in the camper we dealt via email only after I repeatedly tried to get them to contact via phone with no success... "She" then set up a transaction thru "google Checkout" However, I knew it wasnt thru google checkout because google specifically states on its website that they do not accept wire transfers thru someone like Western union. This email that I received was for Western Union not google checkout, google ONLY receives payment via Credit cards. Just wanted to post about this scam on craigslist. her email is Deborah Robinson ,  also - Google Checkout

here is my scam pitch juliaxxxWilson@gmail  will make the deal only trough Google Checkout, because I am a member of the Google Checkout program and using this service you will get a 7 days testing period after delivery. During that 7 days testing period I will not be getting any money. If the vehicle is not like described, it will be shipped back on my expense and they will give you a full refund. This way you will be able to inspect the vehicle before committing to buy it and I know that you have the money and you are not just fooling around. If interested please include in your next email your contact info for shipping (name, address and #) so I can open a transaction with Google Checkout.   Here are the pictures with my SUV:  https://picasaweb.google.com/109609950671353962879/Explorer#5644074518688268818  Thanks If to good to be true it's a scam !!!!!!!

I saw a car on Craiglist that I thought was way to cheap for a 2006 Honda Accord Ex $2,400.00.  At first I was thinking, WOW what a deal but something inside me just wasn't feeling right.  I thought to try and check it out more before sending the money with Western Union. Now I see all the comments that were put here and they sound exactly like how I was approached by the supposed seller.  It reads like this.      I have a low price for my 2006 Hond Accord EX (2,400 including delivery to your home address), because I want to sell the car very quickly.  My husband died 2 months ago (he had a heart attack) and this car brings me bad memories and that's the reason I want to sell it.  I along with my daughter decided to sell the house and we moved to my sister in Nebraska.  Unfortunately I can't conclude this transaction personally because my work involves a lot of travelling but I let everything prepared for the sale.  If you are really interested in purchasing, please email me with your details (name and address) for the shipping.   Thanks Claudia Hudson. I sent her back an email  asking her more questions about the car and she responded me the following. I will mke the deal only through Google Checkout, because I am a member fo the Google Checkout program and using this service you will get a 7 days testing period after delivery.  During that 7  days testing period I will not be getting any money.  If the vehicle is not lke described, it wil be shipped back on my expense and they will give you a full refund.  This way yo will be able to inspect the vehicle before committing to buy it and I know that you have the money and you are not just folling around.  If interested please include in your next email your contact infor for shipping ( name, address and #) so I can open a transaction with Google Checkout.  Here are the pictures with my car.

Slept on with visions of my dream car delivered to my door for inspection. What a fantastic concept....if true. I woke up saying  Iam not that lucky... and started digging and found this link. I really feel sorry for the poor people that didn't find this info in time. I would really like to help anyone who will help bring the creatures to justice. Google Checkout sounds great but they should investigate this fraud. It's serious good people are getting ript off.

Here is another one using ebay Hi,I am emailing you regarding the 2003 Honda Accord EX. The vehicle looks and works perfect. As you see it has a lot of options. No hidden problems and never involved in any kind of accidents, ONLY 87,086 miles. Because of my divorce settlement, i own this car and as a woman without driver's license i don't need it so i'm trying to get rid of it as soon as possible(that's why i'm selling it so cheap) so the first one came is the first one served. The sale will be managed by eBay Vehicle Purchase Protection Program for our own protection as they act as a neutral third part. This is the second time when I try to sell my vehicle...My price on it is $2,800. The eBay auction ended last week and the guy from Alaska was the winning bidder. He could not pay for it. I need a new buyer to register to my eBay transaction. The vehicle and its documents are in the DAS auto shipping warehouse waiting to be delivered. It's fully paid for, fully functional, the title is clean. Shipping, insurance and eBay fees have been paid since the previous transaction. I am a member of the eBay buyer protection program and using this service you will get a 15 days testing period after delivery. The transaction will be made only through eBay. eBay will be the third party that will hold the money till you will receive and inspect the car. If the car meets your expectations and you want to keep it you will have to tell them to release me the payment details so I can get paid. Reply me with your full name and shipping address so eBay can contact you regarding the payment and shipping process.Let me know your thoughts, Hi, I am emailing you regarding the 2003 Honda Accord EX.

09/03/2011 08:01 pm

hey guys, only got two emails into this one but i thought i'd post up another examples from craigslist(address is samantha.beary81@gmail.com): Hi,    I am glad that you are interested in the car, and yes I do have some pictures with it, but I'll have to download it from my camera. Anyway the car starts, runs and it wasn't involved any accidents it also have a clean title. So registering it under your name won't be an issue.   I serve the USAF and I'm stationed at Yokota Air Base in Japan, I was planning to sell the car to a local dealer but plans has changed, since the guy just tried to rip me off. In the meantime I've been deployed at Hanscom Air Force Base to provide aeromedical evacuation support and assistance on Irene relief missions in New York and VA coast. Of course I am not asking you to buy a cat in the bag so we can arrange for an inspection and I can have the car delivered to you through the USAF Air Cargo, so it will cost me nothing. However I am not so familiar with online sales so I will have to use a service from a business-specialized company.   I'm asking $4100 on the car so if you have the money and still interested please reply and I'll get back to you with the pictures, the VIN and the mileage.   Looking forward to hearing from you,   Staff Sgt. Samantha Beary, 36th Airlift. USAF, Yokota AB, Japan I emailed back asking if the car is in Japan or Denver where the ad was posted, this was the reply I sealed the car in an US Air Forces warehouse in Boise ID. It is ready to be shipped by USAF Air Cargo, so it will cost me nothing. You will get it to the nearest airport in your area. A truck service I have arranged will deliver it to your place. The delivery will be door-to-door, at your exact location, so you will not have to pick up the car yourself. The current mileage is 88,000 and the VIN is WBADR63481GN91760. Look at the attachments for more pictures with the vehicle.   Look how it works:   1. I will contact Google Checkout and give all the info about this deal. 2. They will email us the forms which are needed for our deal. 3. I will send the car to your location and you will send the money at Google Checkout. 4. After you will inspect the car and decide to keep it, Google Checkout will forward the funds to me.   If the car is not suitable for you from any reason, your money will be fully refundable and I will take the car back on my cost. I'm sure it won't be the case because it's a state of art looking and working machine. Anyway, you will have 7 days from the time you receive the car to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not. If you wish to purchase it please provide me Your Full Name and Your Complete Address and a phone # you can be reached so I can initiate the deal through Google Checkout. Also, let me know if there's something else you need to know.     Staff Sgt. Samantha Beary, 36th Airlift. USAF, Yokota AB, Japan.

Thanks for the info on "Deborah Robinson" in Provo, UT.  I almost fell for the scam until seeing the exact same thing happening to me.  The person responds back using stilted English and improper sentence structure....one sign of an overseas scammer.  They also refused to call and discuss the camper...another red flag.  I reported the sammer to Craigslist just now.  Hopefully they will block the scumbag from further postings.

This is the response I got form a seller on Kijiji.com!  Smelled of a scam to me! Glad I decided to look in to it a little further! Just as I thought too good to be true.From: emma.spencer76@msn.comTo: Subject: RE: Reply to your "2004 Toyota Camry LE ! Clean !" Ad on KijijiDate: Sun, 4 Sep 2011 14:36:47 -0700Hello there,  Sorry for the delay but I can not read you reply. My 2004 Toyota Camry LE has 73182km, excellent condition, non smoker, no scratches and has been very well maintained. The exterior is in great shape and the interior looks great with no rips or tears in the seating. No accident history . Certified and E-tested. I am selling it at this final price ($3,000) because I have just been promoted at work as Executive Chief and it's a moral obligation for everyone who gets this job to get a Hybrid car, to set an example for her team and and encourage people to pay more attention to the forest and nature around them (I work for Greenpeace Canada). I am the 1st and only owner of this beautiful car. I want to sell it asap and a fast sale can be done only at a low price. The transaction will be made through Google Checkout for the safety of both of us because I'm out of town with my job and I can't take care of this. If you're interested in purchasing just email me with your full name and shipping address, including phone number, so I can notify Google Checkout that you have been selected as my buyer and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure. I can send pictures! Thank youEmma SpencerGreenpeace & Protect Forests Inc.

anyone seen this... My name is Patrick Brown, I am emailing you regarding the 2005 Nissan Maxima SE that I have for sale. The car is in perfect condition , with no need for additional repairs, no scratches, dings, special marks whatsoever, never been involved in any accidents. The interior looks great (NO SMOKING). It has 81500 miles, automatic transmission. I have a clear and clean title for it, no liens or loans ready to be signed and notarized on your name. I'm selling my son's car, who died in Afghanistan two months ago and I want to get rid of it asap because the sight of it makes me think of him often and often and the pain is too great. Put yourself in my shoes and you'll do the same (selling the car of your dead son, no offence) !!!As you probably noticed, the final price that i want for this car is $3400 if you will buy it today or tomorrow.Click here if you want to see more pics: http://img88.imageshack.us/slideshow/webplayer.php?id=16484607.jpgLet me know where are you located and any other details you need about it.

and reply... Hello again, Thank you for your consideration and God bless you. I`m located in Great Falls, MT (the car is here with me) right now because me and my wife got a new job here, the thing is i`m very busy and i don`t have time to stay and meet with all my potential buyers, that is why i gave to a shipping company that will ship it to the next owner (on my cost). I will make the deal only through Google Checkout. I am a member of the Google Checkout and using their services you will get a 7 days testing period after delivery. During that 7 days testing period I will not be getting any money. I need to know if you are interested in buying it so I can ask Google Checkout to send you the details on how this works. If interested please include in your next email your contact info for Google Checkout ( full name, full shipping address and phone # ) so we can get things started. Thanks and have a great day !  i dont know if its real......?????!!!!

Found a car on cars.com and emailed about it.  This is the response I got back.... Hey,  I have a low price ( $ 2,800 including delivery to your home address ), because I want to sell the car very quickly. My husband died 2 months ago (he had a heart attack) and brings me bad memories and that's the reason I want to sell it. I along with my daughter decided to sell the house and we moved to my sister in Nebraska. Unfortunately I can't conclude this transaction personally because my work involves a lot of travelling but I left everything prepared for the sale. If you are really interested in purchasing, please email me with your details (name and address) for the shippingHere are more photos with the car: http://imgur.com/a/XvV5B#WU2mDMileage: 93,000Drive train: 2WDEngine: 4 CylinderHope to hear from you soon When we emailed back to find out exactly where the car was so we could come look at it, this is the response we got.....  Hey,   I will make the deal only trough Google Checkout, because I am a member of the Google Checkout program and using this service you will get a 7 days testing period after delivery.

Here is another one from craigslist in CO... Hello there,   My 2004 VW Beetle Convertible is in perfect condition and runs great, has only 79,196 miles, it is 6speed automatic transmission and a 4 Cylinder engine. There's no damage, no scratches, this car was never involved in an accident.  The title is clean with no lien against it. I stand behind my word, the car looks exactly as presented in the presale sheet you've already received and I assume full responsibility if otherwise, Carfax report is also available by request. My car needs nothing to run, it's in excellent condition and has been extremely well maintained with a full service history. Bought it when i was serving in Homestead Air Reserve Base (ARB) U.S. Air Force base located approximately 6 miles east-northeast of Homestead, Florida. I have dropped my price to $2,000 (purchase price) since this is an Urgent Sale! and I need to sell it before 15th of September when I will be deployed in Iraq with my platoon replacing the troops scheduled to come home. If you're interested to conclude this purchase in a timely manner email me your Complete Name and Shipping Address. I'll send it to Google Checkout to start the process and they will explain the entire procedure. The financial part will be managed by Google Checkout, which means that you will have a 7 days inspection period before committing to buy the car and the title is transferred. That way we're both covered throughout this process.   Hope to hear from you soon, Sergeant Nurse  Tiffany Winters   For pictures please click the link below. http://s1080.photobucket.com/albums/j323/2004VWBeetleConvertible/ Hi again,   Please take a few moments and read my email carefully, I know it is long, but I will explain all the details about the car and the transaction. At the moment I'm making final preparations before deploying to Iraq with the U.S. Convoy . The car is already at our Military Logistic Department from Homestead Air Reserve Base (ARB) U.S. Air Force base crated and ready to go. The Logistic Department will deliver the car to your home. The shipping is free for you.   Since the car is in a military base, with no access you can not go there and take it, only the Logistic Department can deliver it, because the car is in their custody. Shipping may take anywhere between 2 to 3 business days depending on the destination. All documents you need for ownership, manuals and bill of sale will be provided along with the car. For the payment I would like to use Google Checkout as a third party. They will keep your money into a protection account until you get the car and will release it to me after inspection period is over and you agree to keep the car. So, this is not a blind transaction, as you can see the car before committing to buy it and to eliminate any concerns you will have 7 days to inspect the car . If you decide not to keep it Google Checkout will refund you the money, no questions asked, and shipping back will be my concern. I think this is more than fair for both of us.   I'll start the official procedure, and Google Checkout will contact you about this. If you are interested in buying it just mail me back with: - Your Full Name - Required by Google Checkout (You'll receive important guidelines + instructions from them.) - Your Full Shipping Address and Phone Number - Required by the Logistic Department (They will call you with delivery/pickup instructions 1 day ahead so you can communicate what time schedule work best for your to receive the car) Again I want to point out that because I am going to Iraq this sale is my top priority and I am looking after a fast transaction, with no delays. That is why I decided to lower the price, to avoid wasting time with negotiations and find a buyer as soon as possible.   Thanks, hope to do business with you soon!

Here is the reply I got back after responding to the ad in craigslist:   Hello, My name is Beverly and I'm the only owner of this wonderfully 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo The SUV is in perfect condition, i had it check by a mechanic about one week ago and everything is working as it should. It has only 45,000 miles on it and only one owner. It has an Arizona title and is clear with no lines, can be swapped in your name with no problem. I know the price is a bit low but i'm looking for a fast sale, due to my divorce i just want to get rid of it. If you have any questions or will like more photos please email me back and i will be more then happy to help you. Also i can provide a carfax report if you will like. Some info about the car below 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee LAREDO 45,000 miles on it 4.0L L6 MPI Engine Exterior / Interior Color : Black / Gray Automatic Trasmission SELEC-TRAC 4X4 OPTION Here is what I sent back: Hi Beverly, I'm Rebecca.  I've been looking for a good winter car and have had a Jeep.  I live south of Big Fork and have been looking on craigslist in Kalispell and Missoula.  Can you remind me of the price and are you in Missoula?  I am very interested.  I understand the divorce, been there myself. Thanks so much for your reply. Rebecca And this is what I got back… bevsoapp@comcast.net to me show details 11:35 AM (21 hours ago)   Hi, the car is located in Snowflake AZ. I won't be able to complete this transaction face to face because i'm in 7 months pregnant, i did some research over the internet and the best way to make this transaction is through a third party company. Maybe you won't like how i want to make this transaction but i can assure you is the only way we can do it. Google Checkout is the company with the lowest fees and best rating for this, we can go through them if is not a problem with you. The shipping is paid off so you won't have to worry, the car will be delivered at your house with the bill of sale, title and all the necessary papers for you to swap the car in your name. You will also have a 2 days test drive before the third party will send the money to my account, so you will have the time to inspect it before any money are sent to my account. I think is more the fair this transaction and the terms of it. Please let me know if you will like to move forward with this and provide me your full name, full shipping address and phone number (cell or home) so i can open a case with Google Checkout. If you don't know how Google Checkout works please let me know and i will provide you the steps we need to go through. You can see more photos at this link : http://s1192.photobucket.com/albums/aa324/bevsoapp/   That’s where I wondered, what in the world is Google checkout?  So I “Googgled” it and very easily found all of this.  Divorced and 7 months pregnant is quite the sad story, indeed. Thanks to everyone else who posted.

Hello,Here's my encounter with this scam,  This is for a 2006 Ford F-150 for $3000.00. !st. email I recieved from her.Hello, Thank you for your interest in purchasing my vehicle. The vehicle is in perfect condition - like new! If you decide to buy it, you'll receive all the papers, owner manuals, keys, a buy-sell contract already signed by me and the clear title. For this transaction I want to use Google Checkout because I want to provide you a fast and very secure way. They will handle the transaction for me. You will make the payment to Google Checkout and they will hold the money until you receive and inspect the vehicle. ONLY AFTER you receive the vehicle and you inspect it (you have 5 days for inspection) Google Checkout will release the payment to me. The inspection time period will begin as soon as you receive the vehicle at your address. Meanwhile Google Checkout will hold the money into a trust account. So, this is not a blind transaction, you can see the vehicle before you decide to buy it. This way we are both protected : i will know that i have a serious buyer who has the money to pay me and you will be able to see and inspect the vehicle before buying it .The vehicle is priced to sell quickly and the final price that I'm asking for it is $3,000 including shipping and handling costs. HERE'S HER STORY~~~My husband died in Iraq 3 months ago and I along with my daughter decided to sell the house and move to my sister. 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 vehicle please reply to this email and i will provide further instructions regarding payment and delivery.http://s1179.photobucket.com/albums/x386/Melissaagin/?albumview=slideshowI ASKED HER WHERE THE VEHICLE WAS, AND THAT I WOULD LIKE TO SAVE US BOTH THE HASSLE AND GO TO WHERE EVER SHE WAS LOCATED AND PAY HER CASH.  THIS WAS HER REPLY.I have to let you know that i listed all over US because shipping is included in the price.The vehicle is Google's shipping center in Denver,CO and from there it will be shipped to my buyer's address. I have registered the vehicle with Google Checkout Protection Program so a local pick-up is not an option.This transaction is covered by Google Checkout'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 the Google Checkout in the past and all my transaction ended succesfully. You pay to Google Checkout and they will transfer the funds to me only after you get the vehicle. The financial part of our transaction is going through Google Checkout and here are the steps:- I need your full name, shipping address and phone#;- I will forward this information to Google Checkout purchase protection department and they will start our transaction;- Google Checkout 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 Checkout 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 number, in order to start the transaction!Melissa Agin

OMG this is getting very popular, I almost fall for it! Thank you for creating this forumI'm glad to see your inquiry about my truck. It is a Immaculate 1997 Toyota Tacoma 4WD with only 74,229 original miles.Tacoma was ordered with every Factory Option in 1997; Including the Rear Locking Diff (TRD before the TRD Package in 1998).  Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS), Factory Cruise, Power Windows and Locks, Factory Tape and CD player Combo, Tow Package, Bed Liner and Much More.  I would drive this truck across the Country Today and it drives perfect.  Everything works great.The title is clear under my name.I'm the first owner.I am selling at this price ($2,200 ) because I have recently moved to Greece. I was hoping to take my truck here but when I found out how much shipping and registration would be I've changed my mind. As I'm unable to travel in the near future and I don't have anyone in United States to help me with the sale I've decided to make this transaction through Google Checkout Protection Program (they are acting like a third party in our deal). Which means that the payment will be handled by Google Checkout and you will benefit of the 5 days inspection time period and the option to accept or reject the truck on my expense. I can send you more details about how exactly the Google Checkout Protection Program works, but please get back to me asap if you have cash money and if you are ready to buy.This is a scam right?

I received a smiliar email.. i told them them to ship it and i'll pay $500 over their asking price COD:   Well I sealed the car in an US Air Forces warehouse in Boise ID. It is ready to be shipped by USAF Air Cargo, so it will cost me nothing. You will get it to the nearest airport in your area. A truck service I have arranged will deliver it to your place. The delivery will be door-to-door, at your exact location, so you will not have to pick up the car yourself. The VIN is WP0AB091XGS121076 and the current mileage is 194,000. Look how it works:   1. I will contact Google Checkout and give all the info about this deal. 2. They will email us the forms which are needed for our deal. 3. I will send the car to your location and you will send the money at Google Checkout. 4. After you will inspect the car and decide to keep it, Google Checkout will forward the funds to me.   If the car is not suitable for you from any reason, your money will be fully refundable and I will take the car back on my cost. I'm sure it won't be the case because it's a state of art looking and working machine. Anyway, you will have 7 days from the time you receive the car to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not. If you wish to purchase it please provide me Your Full Name and Your Complete Address and a phone # you can be reached so I can initiate the deal through Google Checkout. Also, let me know if there's something else you need to know. Thanks Staff Sgt. Bruce Kelting Yokota AB, Japan."Everyday Is An Opportunity Disguised As A Challenge".

I got a guy claiming to be selling an 05 Acura TL for $2600 lol. this is how it went... Me: "Hey was wondering if you still had the 2005 tl and some more info on it thanks" Jerry (seller):  Hi, Nice to meet you, yes i sell my 2005 Acura TL is in very good condition! It has never been wrecked....Transmission - Automatic, Exterior Color - Blue, Interior Color - Tan, Mileage - 124,000, Fuel Type - Gasoline, Engine - 6 - Cyl., Body Type - Sedan, Vehicle Title - Clear . Options - Cassette player, Leather seats, CD player, Driver airbag, Passenger airbag, Cruise control, Power locks, Power seats, Power windows, Air conditioning .The 2005 Acura TL is one of the most reliable and sought after luxury sports cars on the road and with only a little over 124,200 miles there is still plenty of life left! This one boasts the powerful 3.2L V6 Engine that will be sure to give you an excellent return on your investment! There are no signs of a previous smoker and all the power options work properly! The engine and transmission are in excellent condition! Buy with confidence that this Acura Sedan can be driven anywhere. This car needs nothing but a new home. Buy it, you'll love it. My wife was recently promoted so we had to move in Tampa, FL . We brought the car with us. Besides, there are lot of things which have priority now, so, this car has to go. As you probably noticed, the price is rather low 2,600 Dollars for you if you will buy it today or tomorrow .Due to the fact I am very busy with my work and I don't stay too much at home, the car is already to the shipping company and will be delivered from there very fast, shipping cost is included in price . The transaction will be made under Google Checkout buyer protection plan.

I got the same thing. Almost fell for it as the google invoice looked real, but it just didn't seem right. Everyone that got scammed should go in together to hire a PI and track this guy down. I don't care how good they are at covering tracks, there is always something that can be traced. You just have to know how to look

New Scam on a 25ft airstream at the Fort Carson military base in Colorado.  Similar to another post below - thanks for this site.  I called the public affairs of SFG 10th and they said the ABN abbreviation was wrong - which I thought was fishy.  So seeing that the language is similar to the other military - based quick sale - I figure this is a scam. Saw it on craigslist.  Hi there,I'm active duty in the US Army, stationed at Fort Carson, currently assigned to the 10th SFG-ABN to complete the pre-deployment training program. The Airstream is located at approximately 60 miles south of Denver, stored on a small military facility. It has been prepared for immediate transportation, but it can also be picked up from the base, as long as you'll be able to come here in the next 2 days. If you can't manage to come here before I'll be moved to my next duty station, the Airstream can be transported by a military carrier (transportation charges are included in the selling price). To eliminate any concerns, you will have a 10 days inspection period, prior purchase approvalDue to the urgent nature of sale, the acquisition process will be conducted through the third party payment platform provided by Google Checkout. They basically implement a secure and controlled environment that allows the payment transfer between buyer and seller. Please note that a refundable deposit will be paid (50% of the total price), as proof of your intention to complete the purchase transaction. The money will be held in trust by Google Checkout. If you want to proceed and you have sufficient funds to complete the transaction, please email me back with the following information; - Full Name and Shipping Address (Home Address, City, State, zip/Postal Code)  - Info. required by Google Checkout they will contact you with simple, easy to follow step by step guidelines.- Phone Number: (Home,Mobile,Office) - Info. required by the shipping company, they will call you with delivery/pickup instructions 1 day ahead so you can communicate what time schedule work best for your to receive the unit. I look forward to your response, Eddie D. Rodgers

same thing happened to me. I wanted to purchase a 2004 BMW 325i for $3800.00 the seller said he was gettting deployed to iraq at the end of this month(september) and we would do the whole transactiong through google checkout. I trusted google checkout because it is a large, recognized company. a supervisor emailed me from a google email adress by the name of Howard K. Chambers. he sent me the invoice to make the payment. I made the payment and soon realised it was a scam. I went to the police right away and they called the kentucky police where the bank account was that i wired my money too. The guys house (howard chambers) was forsale and his phone was disconected there was no google checkout account. and i will never see my money again. im only 18 years old and that was all I had. I have gotten a laywer to work on my case at no cost to me. We are fighting against google for letting this kind of behaviour go on this long. THEY SHOULD NOT LET THERE TRADEMARK AND LOGO BE COPIED LIKE THAT. the emails were the exact same as the ones that are sent by the actual google site. i cant believe this has happened to so many people. if you have any info or advice that i can bring into court please email me. nkubis0311@gmail.com

I saw a 2005 Mercedes Benz on craigslist for $5,100 and I was pretty sure it was too good to be true but I decided to email her anyway to make sure........I initially sent her an email asking how many miles the car had on it adn that I'm needing something VERY reliable as I'm a single mom....she responded stating that she was going through a horrible divorce, had to quit job, and is not in Lincoln, NE and the cars so cheap b/c she just needs quick money and she only wanted an email back if I was serious about purchasing; I emailed her back stating since shes wanting it quick I will get to that point. I asked when I can meet up w/ her and test drive adn I'll write her out a check person-to-person if I'm pleased. She then emailed me this back (very similar to the others) Hello,I will respond to your inquires but give me a little time to explain you the process of this transaction.As I told you in my first email, i divorced, i got a new job and moved to Lincoln Nebraska. Before leaving I had prearranged the deal with Google Checkout so my presence isn't necessary. The car is located in Lincoln, at the shipping company, ready to be delivered. The car will arrive at your address in 3-5 working days. The shipping cost is included in the total price of the car! You will have 5 days to test it and inspect the car. So if you want to make this deal I need the following details from you:full name and addressphone #After I will have all this details I will forward them to Google Checkout and I will proceed this transaction. Google Checkout will contact you with all the details that you need to complete this deal and also to see that i am covered by them and that I am legit seller. Waiting your email with the requested details.Regards!! *She  claims her name is Stephanie Williams (which I'm sure is fake) and her email address is stephanie-williams1976@hotmail.com....Please dont fall for this!!!!!

Ok so, I'm 16 years old looking for my first car/truck... I look on craigslist and found a VERY nice Chevy Silverado 1500 Z71 for $2220.00 with 98,000 miles. I emailed her about possibly buying the truck and she said: Hello,This 2001 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 with 98,000 miles, has no leaks or drips and it has never been smoked in.This truck has been extremely well maintained with a full service history.I am the second owner of this truck.I bought it when I was serving in Fort Belvoir and is slightly used in 100% working and looking conditions with a clear title free of encumbrances and liens.I have dropped my price to $2,220.00 since I need to sell it before September 30th,when I will be deployed in Afghanistan with my platoon replacing the troops schedule to come home.If you're interested to conclude this purchase in a timely manner email me your; FULL NAME and SHIPPING ADDRESS & PHONE NUMBER to open a case with eBay's Buyer Protection Program and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure. The financial part will be managed by them, which means that you will have a 7 days inspection period before committing to buy the vehicle. In this way both, buyer and seller are 100% covered during the steps of this transaction.Hope to hear from you soon,Corporal Laura Green  So I figured "Ok, I'll have my dad buy it and I'll pay him back." My dad having his trust issues says he wants to see the truck before we bought it. No problem. I tell the lady, "Corporal Laura Green" that we wanted to see the truck before we bought it. She sent me this email:Hi again,Please take a few moments and read my email carefully, I know it is long, but I will explain all the details about the car and the transaction. At the moment I'm making final preparations before deploying to Afganistan with the U.S. Convoy .The truck is already at our Military Logistic Department form Fort Belvoir, U.S. Army base crated and ready to go. The Logistic Department will deliver the car to your home. The shipping is free for you. Since the car is in a military base, with no access you can not go there and take it, only the Logistic Department can deliver it, because the car is in their custody.Shipping may take anywhere between 2 to 3 business days depending on the destination. All documents you need for ownership, manuals and bill of sale will be provided along with the car.For the payment I would like to use eBay as a third party. They will keep your money into a protection account until you get the car  and will release it to me after inspection period is over and you agree to keep the car. So, this is not a blind transaction, you can see the car before committing to buy and to eliminate any concerns you will have 7 days to inspect the car . If you decide not to keep it eBay will refund you the money, no questions asked, and shipping back will be my concern. I think this is more than fair for both of us.I'll start the official procedure, and eBay will contact you about this. If you are interested in buying it just mail me back with:- Your Full Name - Required by eBay (You'll receive important guidelines + instructions from them.)- Your FUll Shipping Address and Phone Number - Required by the Logistic Department (They will call you with delivery/pickup instructions 1 day ahead so you can communicate what time schedule work best for your to receive the car)Again I want to point out that because I am going to Afganistan this sale is my top priority and I am looking after a fast transaction, with no delays. That is why I decided to lower the price, to avoid wasting time with negotiations and find a buyer as soon as possible. Thanks, hope to do business with you soon!Corporal Laura GreenSo I sent her another message telling her we could come look at it since we live close to Ft. Belvoir... she kind of had a bitter tone in this email she said:Hi,The only way you could possibly come look at the truck is if you had MILITARY CLEARANCE to the base.Thanks again,Corporal Laura GreenI emailed her saying that my dad has MILITARY CLEARANCE to the base. It has been five days and I still haven't gotten a response. I figured I just made her mad and she doesn't want to sell it to me any more... I had no doubts about the legitimacy until I looked up a GMC Yukon in my price range. Found one for $2200.00. Emailed the man "Sergeant Mark Dugan" and the first email I got from "Laura Green" and this one are almost IDENTICAL:Hello, This 2001 GMC Yukon SLT, runs and drives excellent. It has been extremely well maintained with a full service history, Only 98,440 miles! Transmission is Automatic shifts smoothly and the 4x4 operates perfectly. The interior is all original. The truck has all of its original floor mats, 3rd Row seat, all books, complete set of tools and keys. Everything works in the truck lights, gauges, radio, seats, windows, locks, a/c blows ice cold, etc... It has no leaks or drips and does not smoke at all, slightly used in 100% working and looking conditions with a clear title free of encumbrances and liens. I bought it when i was serving in Fort Belvoir, U.S. Army base near Bethesda, MD and now I am deployed in Madrid, Spain . The truck will be delivered from MD, US. I have dropped my price to $2,200 (purchase price) since this is an Urgent Sale! and I need to sell it before October 5th , when I will be deployed in Afghanistan with my platoon replacing the troops scheduled to come home.If you're interested to conclude this purchase in a timely manner email me your: Full Name and Shipping address, to open a case with Google Checkout. They will contact you to explain the entire procedure.The financial part will be managed by them, which means that you will have a 10 days inspection period before committing to buy the truck. In this way both, buyer and seller are 100% covered during the steps of this transaction. Hope to hear from you soon!Sgt. Dugan Mark JohnP.S.: I have made a photobucket album for truck : http://s1103.photobucket.com/albums/g473/markdugangmc/I replied "bullshit" and have reported the ads as scams.

Ok, I guess i will ad my story here.  Mine starts with CARS.com.  I found a Jeep Cherokee forsale.  I emailed the seller if they still had it.  The woman contacted me called herself Regina Aryes.  She was getting a divorce and need to sell the vehicle because she had no DL.  Sounded funny but ok.  Then she gives me the whole spill about "Google Checkout" here below. Notice that she says Indianapolis, USA. Then he says it as all US Papers. Really??? yeah right, no ed lags there.

Thank you ! then ********************************************************************* Hello again,We will use Google Checkout in this transaction in order for both of us to be 100% protected and insured by them.After the divorce i moved back home with my parents,in Indianapolis,IN and now it will be shipped from here.The car comes with all the necessary paperwork (all documents, including owner's manual).The total amount that you will pay is $2,700 with shipping and transfer fees included.I'm currently signed up for Google Checkout services and I would like to close the deal through them.If you are not aware of this program, you should know that it will allow you to test drive and inspect the car before paying me.You will have a 5-day inspection period to decide whether you want to keep the car or not before they release the funds to me.If you won`t like my vehicle ,you notify Google Checkout and you send the car back on my cost.I just need your full name ,address and phone number so I can open a case .(with no further obligation or fees).If you agree my terms of sale,please reply with your permission so I could open a transaction with Google Checkout and move forward with this deal.Hope to hear from you soon.Thank you ! then ****************************************************************Look the vin: 1j4ff48s81l553009.The car is located in Indianapolis , USA right now and has US papers. This the reason that I chose to sell my car over internet.I hope this situation won't affect your decision in buying the car.My friend agreed to help me with the shipping process, but he told me that he doesn't have time for meetings with the potential buyers. That's why I prefer to close the deal through Google Checkout, in order for both of us to feel comfortable.I can send you the car with all documents, including owner's manual,clear title and a bill of sale on your name.After you receive the car you will have 5 days to test, verify and do whatever you need to the car.If, by any reason, the car is not as described, or if you find any problems with it, I will pay for the returning fees.I have a contract with Google Checkout so this deal must go through them.If you are still interested just send me your full name, complete address including zip code, telephone number so I can reserve the car for you and register the transaction with Google Checkout and they will contact you with the instructions step by step on how to complete the transaction.Let me know if we have a deal.Best regards

I've noticed that these ads wanting to use Google Check out are usually high mileage, "must sell now", and below 3K or so which make them attractive.  Small ripoffs rather than the Bernie Madoff types.  The day the transaction took place, my "seller" (middle Eastern sounding fellow) must have called me 30 times wanting to know when I was going to send the money.  Said he'd have to "take a day off work" to finish the transaction.   Right!

i almost did it but it just seemed too good to be true.  if you see a seller named Amanda Valles from Layton Utah.  dont do it!!!  she posted a 2000 jeep wrangler for 2300 dollars and she wanted to use google checkout. but she wanted me to send a western union to JOHN BARBER  12031 Lackland Rd. 63146  St Louis missouri. thank God i am leary of scams online and found this site which pointed me to the google checkout security page.  i posted the address which the money was to be sent hopefully something will be done about this...

I was thinking about doing the same thing with a 1998 Jeep Wrangler. This guy is located in Colorado Springs, CO. Just the way things were said and worded, I knew that it had to be a scam and looked up Google Checkout. You know it's too good to be true when they're selling a Jeep Wrangler for $2700., when they can get at least $7000. Ugh....

The price is low because I need to sell it before September 27th. It is brand new, sealed in the box and it will be delivered in the original box. I never opened the box. It is still available for sale if interested, price as stated in the ad $880, not negotiable. Let me know if you are interested, email me back.

OMG, you saved my life... heres what i was gona buy... Hi, I am selling this car because my brigade will deploy for 24 months to Afghanistan. I'm under enormous time pressure cause I need to sell it fast, before October 28th that being the reason for selling it so low. It is in perfect condition inside and out, never involved in accidents. From the beginning I must say that the car has canadian documents and license plates. I've never smoked in it, and I want to sell it to a serious person. It is still available for sale if interested, price as stated in the ad $2,999. The car is in Camp Atterbury - Edinburgh, Indiana, USA in a military base, and in case it gets sold I will take care of shipping. Let me know if you are interested, email back. Thanks for your interest, SGM. Lori Jury ( 86th BCT )Yes... I'll take care all of shipping costs. Let me know asap !Kind RegardsBecause it is a large transaction, we will complete the deal only using an authorized third part like Google Checkout coz I already prearranged the whole process with them, using their Google Safe Pay Solutions (bank-to-bank wire transfer) for vehicles. The money will be sent to Google Checkout, before you will receive the car. So, you will deposit the payment directly into the Google Checkout agent's bank account in United States, either online or at most banks and they will hold and secure your money during the entire transaction. I repeat, they will hold and insure your money until receipt of the car in good condition and will release the funds to us only after you decide to keep the car and you register it, into your name. You will have an inspection period of 7 days. In this time you can check, test and inspect the car. If by any reason (the car has any hidden damages or is not like I describe it) you can reject the deal. In this case Google Checkout will refund you totally and they will ship the car back. Let me know your shipping details (your full name, full address and home phone number) so I can open a transaction case with Google Checkout and declare you as buyer. They will contact you with further information regarding payment and shipping. Regards,SGM. Lori Jury ( 86th BCT )THANKS TO THIS POST... I SAVED MY $3000.... GOOD THING I DID RESEARCH FIRST !!

Before leaving I had prearranged the deal with Google Checkout so my presence isn't necessary. The car is located in Lincoln, at the shipping company, ready to be delivered. The car will arrive at your address in 3-5 working days. The shipping cost is included in the total price of the car! You will have 5 days to test it and inspect the car. HA!

Yup, just saw this myself for a CAT loader. Richard Barber to meshow details 7:32 AM (53 minutes ago) Hello againLike I told you before the cat is in great condition !At this moment I am in the military base in Hungary (Europe) getting ready for Afghanistan. This mean that I do a special training program and I am not allowed to get out of the base or give calls whenever I want.The cat is already at the US Army logistics dept. in WA sealed and ready for shipping. The shipping can't be a problem because I can do it at no cost for you. You will receive the bill of sale with the cat.If you are interested here is how it works:1. I'll open a transaction with Google Checkout for you using your delivery details as the buyer of my cat. The cat is already at the U.S. Army - Military Auto Transport Dept sealed and ready to be delivered.2. Google Checkout will send you an invoice for payment and delivery details regarding our transaction.3.  You will send the payment to Google Checkout and they will notify me about the status while USArmy - Military Auto Transport Dept will receive the confirmation of the payment and shipping will start to your location.4. After you will receive and inspect the cat and decide to keep it, US Army Financial Dept will inform Google Checkout about that and they will forward me the funds and the deal will be done.Basically Google Checkout will secure the funds until you receive and inspect the cat.

This way you will be able to inspect the cat before committing to buy it and me knowing that you have the money and you are not just fooling around.You will wire the money to Google Checkout not to me, they will keep the money safe until you will receive the cat and send them the confirmation that you want to keep it and just after that they will release the payment to me.If you would like to move forward with this deal send me your full name and address where you want it sent and we can start the transaction.

The same asshole just stole $2200 from me via craigslist and a fake google checkout.  This time his name was Sgt. Bob Eddy and I did received a receipt w/ instructions from I thought was google checkout.  It had links to the real google checkout that included information that my transaction was insured up to 20K so I felt safe.  His emails was via google.  Eddybob27@gmail.com    The money was transfered to vegas to be picked up by a ALEXANDR COLCEV    Later they wanted even more money to be sent to Mladen Zolotic.  The fake google checkout emails came from :google.checkout.invoice@usa.com   now the fbi says they won't handle this cyber issue because it's less then 10K!   any advice how to catch these guys?

they gave me an address in florida as well.  5580 Baywater Dr. Tampa FL 33615.  FAke fake fake.  Whoever this is was able to fleece me out of $2200.  Why can't the fbi track their IP address?   The gaul of these people are still contacting me if I want the bike i purchased through google checkout.  they want an additional $1500 to insure the vehicle for delivery.

Wow I'm glad I looked up Google Checkout as a trusted good old boy from south dakota I just knew if a deal sounds too good to be true it really probably IS. Up for sale is a perfect 1996 Honda Gold Wing SE I want to be honest with you, the bike is in perfect condition and runs great has 23,000 miles. No damage, no scratches, never involved in an accident, clean title, never been wrecked and is in the same shape as the picture show. The point is, its been well cared for, never abused, and needs nothing. Runs excellent! This bike has been extremely well maintained.It has all the goodies you expect to find on an SE model. Reverse, electronic cruise control, toe warmers, lighted trunk spoiler. The built in back rest makes long distance cruising a pleasure. I am the second owner. I bought this bike from the original owner when it had 12,000 miles. The bike now has 23,000 miles, and for a Gold wing, that’s hardly broken in. Bought it when i was serving in U.S. Army base near Brooklyn , NY and now I am deployed in Rome , Italy . The bike will be delivered from NY, US. I have dropped my price to $1,740 (purchase price) since this is an Urgent Sale! and I need to sell it before 15th October when I will be deployed in Afghanistan with my platoon replacing the troops scheduled to come home.If you're interested to conclude this purchase in a timely manner email me your Complete FULL NAME and SHIPPING ADDRESS & PHONE NUMBER to open a case with Google Checkout they will contact you to explain the entire procedure.The financial part will be managed by them, which means that you will have a 7 days inspection period before committing to buy the bike. In this way both, buyer and seller are 100% covered during the steps of this transaction.Hope to hear from you soon,Corporal Nicole GesualdoPS: for more pictures of the bike, see my album: http://s1092.photobucket.com/albums/i401/1996HondaGoldWingSE/ Ok so I send a email back trying to see this bike with a few extra lies myself.... Cool,Actually I was looking in craiglist in sd for tickets to the vikings game vs greenbay when I came across your ad. I live right here in the BIG APPLE so I can come and see it tomorrow with the cash. Let me know the address and I'll be there early morning if thats ok? thanks Tim Oh but here is his answer... Please take a few moments and read my email carefully, I know it is long, but because I received too many emails, I will explain all the details about the bike and the transaction. At the moment I'm stationed in Rome, Italy making final preparations before deploying to Afghanistan with the U.S. Convoy.The bike is already at our Military Logistic Department form Fort Belvoir, U.S. Army base near Brooklyn, NY, crated and ready to go. The Logistic Department will deliver the bike to your home. The shipping is free for you. Since the bike is in a military base, with no access you can not go there and take it, only the Logistic Department can deliver it, because the bike is in their custody. Shipping may take anywhere between 2 to 4 business days depending on the destination. All documents you need for ownership, manuals and bill of sale will be provided along with the bike.For the payment I would like to use Google Checkout as a third party. They will keep your money into a protection account until you get the bike and will release it to me after inspection period is over and you agree to keep the bike. So, this is not a blind transaction, you can see the bike before committing to buy and to eliminate any concerns you will have 7 days to inspect the bike. If you decide not to keep it Google Checkout will refund you the money, no questions asked, and shipping back will be my concern. I think this is more than fair for both of us.If you're interested to conclude this purchase in a timely manner email me your Full Name and Shipping Address to open a case with Google Checkout they will contact you to explain the entire procedure. I'll start the official procedure, and Google Checkout will contact you about this. You'll receive important guidelines + instructions from them in the next 24 hours.Thanks and take care.---

ALMOST fell for this!! He went by Nicholas Eckert! With the email: nicholas.eckert99@gmail.com Hello , I am selling this beautiful, well maintained 2003 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab Truck 4x4 because my brigade will deploy for 14 months to Afghanistan. I'm under enormous time pressure cause I need to sell it fast, before October 15 that being the reason for selling it so low. It is in immaculate condition, non-smoker, meticulously maintained and hasn't been involved in any accident...I do have the title, clear, under my name. It is gently used with only 81,500 miles !   It is still available for sale if interested, price as stated in the ad $2,300. The truck is in Monroeville, PA and in case it gets sold I will take care of shipping. Let me know if you are interested, email back. It is 4x4, 6 cyl, automatic.   I've attached 50 photos.   https://picasaweb.google.com/111740338884518958759/NiceToyotaTacoma2003#   Thank you! Hi , I've previously told you,I'm currently involved in a military program, temporarily based in PA, as I'll be changing it for Afghanistan very soon. Due to military security reasons I'm restricted from leaving the unit's facility under any purpose and have strictly limited phone access. The shipping won't be a problem; military has a considerable discount, so I can handle it by myself, with no charges whatsoever on your account.   The truck will be sent along with all its documents including title, bill of sale, 2 sets of keys, full service records and everything else you'll need. Because it's such a large transaction, I'd suggest using an authorized third party, Google Checkout for instance. I've done some research and that's the safest way to do it. That's why, I've taken the liberty to prearrange things with them, using their escrow Google Checkout. I thought you might want to see it there, so I've asked them to allow viewers to inspect the truck; but their reply was: "We are not a showroom!" No worries cause I'll grant you a 5 days inspection period (to test drive it) from the moment you receive it, before Google Checkout escrow releases your money to me. The truck is located in their warehouse in PA (ready for delivery).The shipping company will deliver your vehicle to your front door at a time convenient to you. Standard shipping is usually delivered in 3-4 business days If you are determined in buying the vehicle, please send me an email with your name and shipping address. I will post the transaction mentioning the vehicle details, the price etc on Google Checkout website and confirm you as the buyer.   After the transaction is processed they will send you the invoice explaining the exact procedure...it's quite simple. Thank you!

Very similar to my situation. I lost $3000 thru a Google checkout scam. I just want to get a hold of these people! I have reported this to Google and the FBI.

Ronbo

10/10/2011 04:55 pm

This person needs to be caught or set up some how! I was scammed in the same way, with similar info. There are too many cases just like ours. Law enforcement and news stations should get involved more. Just to make people aware or maybe catch them!

Ronbo

10/10/2011 05:03 pm

I feel like having Google explain how their site can be forged so easily. With hundreds maybe thousands of these cases, action needs to be taken. My situation is similar to all these with Goolgle checkout, I am out $3000!

Woww!  Thank god i did my research and ran into this site!  2004 Nissan Maxima off Craigslist for $2000- deffinitly too good to be true.  I was told by the 'seller, Jason Stapelton,' he'd moved to UK for work and the cost of shipping the vehicle to UK was too much.  He mention a 3rd party, which of course the 3rd party is Google Checkout!  He stated I have 7 days to test the vehcile and make a decision-  every email reply from him was l-o-n-g, which at first i didn't take count to-  but after the 2nd one, i was getting ?able  :S It seem too fishy-  i notice the craigslist ad was listed as "2004 Nissan Maxima- $2000 (Carme, IN)", within a day the same ad for the vehicle was listed as "A CLEAN 2004 Nissan Maxima- $2000 (Bloomington,IN)", & later that evening, the SAME vehicle picts were listed as, "MUST SEE!!! 2004 Nissan Maxima $2000- (Fishers, IN)".   I continued him on, on my interest on the vehicle- i asked: * whom or what company handles the shipping of the vehicle? * Vehicle id# and i asked for assurance... how can he proof this was not a Scam!??                                                                                                              Never received a reply back...

I was interested in a 2006 Nissan Altima  from someone of the name of "Anna Madison". Im sure thats not even her real name! She was only charging me $2700! This was way too good to be true! It only had 26k miles on it! She said we'de be using google checkout. She even made a fake invoice from google checkout that looked legit. She kept rushing me, saying she got a job offer out of country and she needed to sell the car. She wrote long paragraphs telling me her story, so I felt I could trust her. Im glad I went with my first mind! If it seems to good to be true IT IS! DO YOUR RESEARCH! Im glad I came across this website. She wanted me to send money to some "middle person... or "google checkout client" via Western Union. Google checkout has nothing to do with Western Union! That was my red flag! Also, she offered to ship to me. That was another red flag! Dealers dont ship to you for FREE!  When I confronted her, (or him) she accused me of wasting her time for the past week, saying she had other buyers. I request that she show me proof this was not a scam.She had no proof. When I told her Inreported her as a scam, she stopped emailing me. Im glad I dodged a bullet! Please guys NEVER SEND A MONEY TRANSFER! It is a way for them to get your money. It is untrackable. Once its gone, its gone. Stop and evaluate the situation before making deals with people. Not everyone is legit. Dont be afraid to ask for opinions! ...Hope this helps some of you!

A Motor Home too good to be true! I'm still emailing this guy to see just how far he will take this. So far he only has my email address and one of my names! This has been going on for about five days so far. Hi there,I'm active duty in the US Army, stationed at Fort Smith, AR. to complete the pre-deployment training program. The Motorhome is stored on a small military facility. It has been prepared for immediate transportation, but it can also be picked up from the base, as long as you'll be able to come here in the next 2 days. If you can't manage to come here before I'll be moved to my next duty station, the Motorhome can be transported by a military carrier (transportation charges are included in the selling price). To eliminate any concerns, you will have a 10 days inspection period, prior purchase approvalDue to the urgent nature of sale, the acquisition process will be conducted through the third party payment platform provided by Google Checkout. They basically implement a secure and controlled environment that allows the payment transfer between buyer and seller. Please note that a refundable deposit will be paid (50% of the total price), as proof of your intention to complete the purchase transaction. The money will be held in trust by Google Checkout. If you want to proceed and you have sufficient funds to complete the transaction, please email me back with the following information; - Full Name and Shipping Address (Home Address, City, State, zip/Postal Code) - Info. required by Google Checkout they will contact you with simple, easy to follow step by step guidelines.- Phone Number: (Home,Mobile,Office) - Info. required by the shipping company, they will call you with delivery/pickup instructions 1 day ahead so you can communicate what time schedule work best for your to receive the unit. I look forward to your response, John Wilston

I think that Google should try to put some kind of BIG warning about their Google Pay methods. " Note: Google Checkout does not accept wire transfers/bank transfers or payments via Western Union/Money Gram, nor does it use any escrow type of payment" The above notice, that I fortunately found in time, should for more BOLDLY placed in their warnings.

Here is another case. I am not sure this is a scam or not just yet but it definatley to good to be true. Any one aware of  a Daniel Thomas selling a 2009 Traverse? My time is limited due to my new job, the nature of the job requires me to travel all over US and Canada, that's why I can't meet with you in order to complete the transaction. That's why I prefer to close the deal through Google Checkout in order for both of us to feel comfortable. I'm currently signed up for a protection program offered by Google Checkout and I would like to close the deal through them. If you are not aware of this program, look how this works:1. Buyer and seller reach an agreement (price and delivery conditions)2. Buyer sends money to Google.3. Google confirm to seller that the amount has been received.4. Seller performs the required services (shipping, insurance).5. Buyer accepts delivery and informs Google about the acceptance.6. Google release the money to seller. The car is located at their shipping company in Austin, TX, sealed and ready for shipping. The shipping will take 2-3 working days. You will also have 7 days to inspect the vehicle. If, by any reason, the car is not as described, or if you find any problems with it, you will be able to send the car back through the same shipping company, and Google return the funds to you. Though I am sure you will love the car and will not want to return it, it is good to know that you do have this second option available. The VIN is : 1GNEV33D99S112151I need your consent and your full name and shipping address, so we can register the transaction with Google in order to receive their instructions step by step on how to complete the transaction safely. If you have other questions feel free to email me, I hope we can do business together.Sincerely,

The same happened to me... Sad to read that´s a scam... it was so good, and I thought I would have  a great car... here it is: I'm the owner of this nice 2000 Nissan Maxima GLE.It has been very well maintained, serviced regularly with full service history, runs and drives like a dream. Clean and clear title in hand and is ready to go. I'm looking for a quick sale before my upcoming deployment take place, that's why I've lowered my asking price to only $2.000 (no hidden charges).  The vehicle is currently located at approximately five miles of Great Neck, NY.,stored in military compound. It's available for immediate pick-up but it could also be transported free of charge by a military carrier, estimated shipping time: 2-3 business days. As I said before, this car is in absolutely pristine condition and to support my argument I've added here a brief presentation: Mileage:  85,000 miles Title:  Clear Transmission:  Automatic Engine:  6 Cylinder, 3.0 L Exterior color:  Silver Interior color:   Black Fuel type:  Gasoline Body type:  Sedan For more pictures please see the following link: http://jpegbay.com/gallery/001213221-3.html#3 Thanks for your interest, hope to hear from you soon Andrew When I told him that I was interested, he answered: Hi again, I'm currently serving on active duty in the USMC 10th PSYOP Bt. and at this point and time I'm stationed on a military facility located approximately 50 miles from Great Neck, NY. My battalion was assigned to the 96th Squadron CADST and scheduled for deployment in the next couple days. The vehicle is here with me, but to pick it up is essential to be here in the next 2 days. If you can't manage to come here before I'll be moved to my next duty station, the vehicle can be transported by a military carrier, delivery charges will be included in the actual selling price. Due to the urgent nature of this sale, I'd like to conclude this transaction using eBay's Security Center, they basically provides a secure and controlled environment that allows the payment transfer between buyer and seller. To eliminate any concerns, you will have a 5 days inspection period, prior purchase approval. After the inspection period ends and you decide not to keep the vehicle, shipping back will be my concern. If you want to proceed and you have sufficient funds to complete the transaction, please email me back with the following information. - Your Full Name and Shipping Address (Home Address, City, State, zip/Postal Code) -  Info. required by eBay's Security Center, they will contact you with simple, easy to follow step by step guidelines. - Your Phone Number: (Home,Mobile,Office) - Info. required by the shipping company, they will call you with delivery/pickup instructions 1 day ahead so you can communicate what time schedule works best for you to receive the vehicle.  I look forward to your response, And that´s all... Luckily I looked for clues... Thanks for the help!

I also have been fished for this scam. I have thankfully not given any money. Here is the original email. Hello, I sealed the car in an US Air Forces warehouse in Boise,ID. It is ready to be shipped by USAF Air Cargo, so it will cost me nothing.I will come to the nearest airport in your area and a truck service I have arranged will deliver it to your place. The delivery will be door-to-door, at your exact location, so you will not have to pick up the car yourself. VIN: wmeej31x98k202076 Mileage: 12,000 miles Title: Clear Body type: Coupe  Engine: 1.0L 3 Cylinder Gasoline Fuel  Exterior color: White  Transmission: Automatic  Fuel type: Gasoline  Interior color: Tan  Drivetrain: Rear Wheel Drive Look how it works:   1. I will contact Google Checkout and give all the info about this deal. 2. They will email us the forms which are needed for our deal. 3. I will send the car to your location and you will send the money at Google Checkout. 4. After you will inspect the car and decide to keep it, Google Checkout will forward the funds to me.   If the car is not suitable for you from any reason, your money will be fully refundable and I will take the car back on my cost. I'm sure it won't be the case because it's a state of art looking and working machine. Anyway, you will have 7 days from the time you receive the car to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not. If you wish to purchase it please provide me Your Full Name and Your Complete Address and a phone # you can be reached so I can initiate the deal through Google Checkout. Also, let me know if there's something else you need to know. Capt. Rosanna Vasquez Brown, 7th Squadron. USAF, Baghdad AB, Iraq. ------------------------------------- I have been deployed to Irag and my first clue was there is no such place as "Baghdad AFB". The military uses acronyms like crazy and when I asked which FOB and LSA was near there, the person had no clue to what it meant. I also ran a Carfax on the VIN. This car is listed as Black and the car she had photos of was white. Do not trust this! Also, FYI, the military does not deliver to your house for free via Aircraft. Any service like that is for PCS move and  requires orders and usually it requires a UHAUL truck and moving your own stuff in a given amount of time. Otherwise its shipping container or flat bed, at a fortune to you, good luck with the Government paying you back.

My husband and I answered an ad for a : Year: 2000Make: C&C Model: 2 Horse LQ Trailer Price: $2,800   http://i54.tinypic.com/2a5gjeh.jpg.   The woman used her name as "Helen Stone" said she worked at a casino, so couldn't call.  She had  "Google Checkout.com" send us a verification for the sale.  We received confirmation from:  "Customer@checkout-google-department.com '  which looked legit- Google also sent a 2nd and third verification- My husband evern contact google checkout, and asked them if this was all correct- which tey replied back "yes".  But then at the bottom there was a request to send money through Western Union- and this woman asked that we mention she is a relative to avoid paying taxes- this is when we became suspicious- did a little more research and found that others had been ripped off too.  I have contacted the FBI internet fraud department.  I have also looked online and have seen VERY similiar ads for horses trailers w/ living quarters- all too good to be true- so just be smart!  good luck.

My husband and I answered an ad for a : Year: 2000Make: C&C Model: 2 Horse LQ Trailer Price: $2,800   http://i54.tinypic.com/2a5gjeh.jpg.   The woman used her name as "Helen Stone" said she worked at a casino, so couldn't call.  She had  "Google Checkout.com" send us a verification for the sale.  We received confirmation from:  "Customer@checkout-google-department.com "  which looked legit- Google also sent a 2nd and third verification- My husband ever contacted google checkout, and asked them if this was all correct- which they replied back "yes" as well as verifying the item/description #.  But then at the bottom there was a request to send money through Western Union- and this woman asked that we mention she is a relative to avoid paying taxes- this is when we became suspicious- did a little more research and found that others had been ripped off too.  I have contacted the FBI internet fraud department.  I have also looked online and have seen VERY similiar ads for horses trailers w/ living quarters- all too good to be true- so just be smart!  good luck. they average around $2,800- 3,800.

i think if there are enough people, who contact the FBI internet fraud/crimes division- it will add up to over 10k- I was told, that if enough people contact them- they will act on it- so contact your local fbi department.  I tried to but was told my "email was invalid" i have a gmail account, so don't understand that.

Found a 2004 Jetta TDI on Auto Trader for $2900.  That is way below book.  I just totaled my 2004 Jetta TDI and insurance paid me almost $8000 for it.  I called the number and it isn't in service.  I emailed the person and she replied back.  She wanted me to send the $2900 to Google Checkout and she said she would ship the car to me.  I told her given the fact that her number wasn't in service I didn't feel comfortable sending her the money but that I was familiar with her area code because I had family there and that I was willing to make the 5 hour drive to come test drive the car.  She was still insistent that I wire the money to anybody, not her, and send her a copy of the receipt to prove I had the money.  I declined and said I would gladly wire her a $100 deposit to hold the car until Saturday when I could drive up to get it.  She didn't want that either.  And again requested that I do the transfer to prove that I had the money and that she would bring the car to me.   I did a vin check and the car was recently register in Pheonix, AZ  but the phone number she listed and the address she gave was for Centreville, VA.  I reported her to Auto Trader as suspected FRAUD.

I was looking to buy a jet ski and found this one 2009 model never used for 10'500, which it would be around 15'000 normally. I was really keen the I e-mailed her lez_taylor@msn:disqus .com see below Hi, sorry for mailing you so late.Thanks for inquiring about my 2010 Seadoo Jet Ski 215.The price is $ 10,500.00 including the shipping to your address (only in Australia). The Jet Ski is located in Australia but currently I am located in United Kingdom because I just finished the divorce with my husband and I have moved back home.The delivery will take approx 1 to 3 working days (with insurance and 7 days return policy).The sale will be managed only through Google Checkout since they offer the highest rate of safety and reliability during online transactions, and only after you will receive the Jet Ski, I will receive the payment; in this way we are both 100% protected.To begin the transaction I just need a clear decision if you want to buy this or not and your complete name and shipping address. After that you will receive an invoice from Google Checkout that will tell you all the details you need to know about our transaction and also will give you the choice to proceed or not with the deal. Kind Regards,Lez Taylor I wrote back and said I live close to where it is and I would like to pick it up and then she said  no can not be arranged only delivered. I picked up on it and now just playing games with them. They will not get a dollar out of me so watch out, and im not sure who i should report this to so ill put it here for you guys

I, like yourself, received this exact email, word for word, after I had responded to an ad regarding a 2007 Four Winds 28A 5000 Series motorhome that had been listed in the Salem, OR craigslist.  The response was complete with a u-tube video depicting the motorhome.  Salem craigslist deleted the ad within 24 hours stating it was a scam.  Too bad, it would of been a great buy but I guess John Wilston can't afford the real thing.

Hi Shirley, I feel your pain, I have been looking for bargains and have encountered quite a few scammers. I have heard all sorts of stories/reasons they can't meet face to face and deal. They have tried Yahoo finanace, Google check out, etc. I am really surprised at how many scammers I have found on Cars.com. There is fraud warnings posted on all the sell/purchase sites, I just didn't realize that most of the bargain purchases are actually scumbag scammers trying to rip you off. Take care and beware.

heres the one I got lol From: "Amy Martin" To: sixstringcharlie@comcast.net Sent: Thursday, November 10, 2011 4:11:01 PM Subject: RE: jeep wrangler Hi,   I have a low price ( $ 2,500 including delivery to your home address ), because I want to sell the car very quickly. My husband died 2 months ago (he had a heart attack) and brings me bad memories and that's the reason I want to sell it. I along with my daughter decided to sell the house and we moved to my sister in Nebraska. Unfortunately I can't conclude this transaction personally because my work involves a lot of travelling but I left everything prepared for the sale. If you are really interested in purchasing, please email me with your details (name and address) for the shipping.   Here are more photos with the car: http://imgur.com/a/a4JaY#0   Mileage: 57,179 Engine: 6 Cylinder Thanks.

heres what came next Hi,   The car is still for sale and is located in Nebraska with me. I will make the deal only through Google Checkout. I am a member of the Google Checkout buyer protection program and using this service you will get a 7 days testing period after delivery. During that 7 days testing period I will not be getting any money. I need to know if you are interested in buying it so I can ask Google Checkout to send you the details on how this works. If interested please include in your next email your contact info for Google Checkout (Full Name, Address and Phone#) so we can get things started. I will take care of shipping. Blessings Amy

I was looking to buy a Segway.  The seller using the name William McGee paraded as a Captain in the Airforce and was going to be deployed to Spain and wanted to use Google Checkout with Western Union Money Transfer.  This is a scam.  Google Checkout does not use cash transactions.  He wanted me to send it to an escrow agent of Google Checkout by the name of Barry Krebs in Spain so he could get the money where he was going to be deployed.  Do not do any cash transactions with Google Checkout they are phony invoices sent by the scammers.

watch out for a man named Corporal Sam Sanford ,  "Please take a few moments and read my email carefully, I know it is long, but because I received too many emails, I will explain all the details about the truck and the transaction.  At the moment I'm stationed in Brooklyn, NY making final preparations before deploying to Afghanistan with the U.S. Convoy. The truck is already at our Military Logistic Department form Fort Hamilton, U.S. Army base near Brooklyn, NY, crated and ready to go. The Logistic Department will deliver the truck to your home. The shipping is free for you. Since the truck is in a military base, with no access you can not go there and take it, only the Logistic Department can deliver it, because the truck is in their custody. Shipping may take anywhere between 2 to 4 business days depending on the destination. All documents you need for ownership, manuals and bill of sale will be provided along with the truck. For the payment I would like to use Google Checkout as a third party. They will keep your money into a protection account until you get the truck and will release it to me after inspection period is over and you agree to keep the truck. So, this is not a blind transaction, you can see the truck before committing to buy and to eliminate any concerns you will have 7 days to inspect the truck. If you decide not to keep it Google Checkout will refund you the money, no questions asked, and shipping back will be my concern. I think this is more than fair for both of us. If you're interested to conclude this purchase in a timely manner email me your Full Name and Shipping Address to open a case with Google Checkout they will contact you to explain the entire procedure. I'll start the official procedure, and Google Checkout will contact you about this. You'll receive important guidelines + instructions from them in the next 24 hours. Thanks and take care." damn... i almost bought that truck too. shoot. was going to go to the bank tomorrow and apply for a loan haha poo :( too good to be true  - Max Willis

I wondered why I got a couple of notes several months ago inquiring about a car. My email is slightly different but close enough so that it might be mistaken. If I find this person, they will be prosecuted.

My 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel is in good condition, no scratches, no damages, never been involved in any accidents, no problems at the engine, runs very well.  It has a 5.9L 6 Cyl. Turbocharged engine, Automatic transmission , 95,250 original miles, clear title, a perfect truck. The price is not negotiable $2,000 firm. GREAT MPG (I average between 22+ mpg on hwy). I just moved in Provo, UT and the truck is here with me.  This belonged to my husband and after he passed away i decided to sell it. My name is on the title. Due to the fact I am very busy with my work and I don't stay too much at home, the truck is already at the shipping company and will be delivered from there very fast, shipping cost is included in price.  The transaction will be made under Google Checkout buyer protection plan.  So if you are interested i will give you further details."

I'm very busy so I can't meet you in person and this is the reason why I opted to sell my car over the Internet. The payment will be done through Google Checkout Program and its 100% safe and legit. You will receive an email from them instructing you about how to send payment. You have to send the money to Google Checkout Program , and they will hold the money until you have the car and inspect, you will have a few days for inspection and test drive . If the car its not like i said or you simply don't like it you will be able to reject it and Google 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 both of us. I am willing to handle the shipping. It will be shipped from here with DAS so it will not cost you anything. Please get back to me asap if you decide to buy, and include in your e-mail your full name and address where you want it shipped so I can start the deal with Google Checkout Program.

Jenifer we prefer to talk through email because is more fast and comfortable for us. If you have any questions please let me know! Also if you 100% decided to buy the GL we will give you our phone# to talk with you. We want to tell you that we will use Google Checkout in this transaction in order for both of us to be 100% protected and insured by them, Google Checkout will supervise over our transaction. They will take care of the shipping (The car is already at the shipping company with all papers and documents ready to be shipped) and all the small details. You will get the car and you will have 10 calendar days return-policy in which you can decide if you will buy the car or not. In the inspection period you can test the vehicle, go with the vehicle at your local mechanic for inspection, but do not put more then 200 miles on it.After your inspection period (10 calendar days) In case you won't like the car (not your case) you will notify Google Checkout and you will send the car back on my expense, if you want to keep it you will also announce Google Checkout, you will send the funds (payment method and all the details will be set up by Google Checkout ) and you will keep the car.Please get back to me with your FULL NAME & FULL ADDRESS so i can forward your details to Google Checkout in order for you to receive your purchase invoice and if you will agree with what will find in the invoice will go from there. Google Checkout will contact you with an invoice and they will explain you how to start this transaction all the details and instructions for this transaction will be found in the invoice and you will see this transaction is legit. If you will disagree with the transaction proposed by Google Checkout, you can simply refuse to continue with the transaction and would be no problem, I still have a few offers left. PS : Don't forget to send me your FULL NAME & FULL ADDRESS if you are really interested in this car. And also I will need them for further collaboration regarding the transaction and better explanation of the whole process! Thank you for all and if you have other questions please reply to my email.

Well Sure glad that I slept over this too good too be true deal!... A 2009 850 Polaris ATV- being sold by Yolanda:  cortesy54 @yahoo.com.  She wanted 2100.00 for it.  Her husband died two months ago and she and her daughter moved to OH with her sister.  All the emails back and forth were very skeptical!  I even told her that!  So hey I was stupid, I gave her my name and address...got a email from the crazie google checkout.... then I started emailing them..lol...yeah I was asking all kinds of questions...but could never get a straight forward answer.  I then told her that since it was on a Saturday I could not do the transaction.  Well now I am going to just give it back to her!... I wished that there was something that could be done to these people.  I know from past experiences and knowledge that nothing is done, so yea I guess, as I said earlier, I am the stupid one here too, although I did get a lil smarter and did not do the WESTERN UNION CASH deal.   I am going to discontinue to use the email address..or only open from ones that I know.  Is there anyone out there reading that can direct me to a secure site as to what to do to make sure that nothing will happen to my email address?    PEOPLE OUT THERE>>>> DO NOT SEND ANYTHING WESTERN UNION/CASH TO NO BODY!!!!!!!ABSOLUTELY NO BODY!!!!!!!!  Unless you know the exact person... this will curtail any scamming that these scum bags are doing!

This tractor is still listed on some classifieds website, I have been emailing this veronica back and forth all morning because she says the JD 6420 is located in Minneapolis mn which i am about 2 hours from. She said we need to do the deal through google becasue she has some contract with them and then i would have 15 days to return the tractor. When i said we needed to see it and would only pick it up in person the emails stopped haha I think thats the end of the road on this deal.

Here's the VIN# 2BPSBB8CX8V000674.Like i told you in my first email the sled is in St John's, NL,Canada.It's currently crated and held in the harbor at the shipping company ready to be delivered. I must pay a fee for each day for stationing in the harbor so I priced it low to sell it fast. Shipping will be free of charge for you and will take no more than one week(five working days) you will receive the sled along with all the paperworks,keys,title and a bill of sale signed by me. I'm not good at explanations but I will try to explain you how it will work from now on: 1) You will send me your name and shipping address. 2) I will contact Google Checkout to open a case and they will send you the invoice. 3) You will make the payment like is stated on invoice. 4) You will send the payment details at Google Checkout. 5) They will contact me if  the payment is OK. 6) I will send the sled to your address and send you the tracking number. 7) After you have received the sled and only if it is like I described it you will contact Google Checkout to release the payment to me. 8) I will get my money and you will get your new sledi got the vin, should i check it out first? it sounds identical to your messages, im unsure as what to do. def not sending any money until im absolutely sure.

Here's one I got, notice it's the same VIN as the previous post, but for a Honda Civic!  VIN: 2HGES25793H563194  I would like to handle the sale using eBay for our own protection as they act as a neutral third party. eBay will keep the money until you inspect/drive the vehicle. This is how the eBay works: 1. I will contact eBay and give all the info about this deal.2. They will email us the forms by email - about the buyer's protection policy, delivery, and payment.3. You will send the payment to eBay and they will notify me to ship the vehicle to your location.The shipping will take 5 days.4. After you will inspect/drive the vehicle and decide to keep it, eBay will forward me the funds and the deal is done. You have 5 days to test it from the day you receive it. If by any chance you won't be satisfied with it you will be fully refunded and I will have the shipping company come to pick it up and I have to pay the shipping back. If you wish to purchase it please provide me your full name, address so I can initiate the deal through eBay.Good faith has always been my top priority and my most valued business approach. Looking forward to hear from you!

Just arrested my free-fall down the road of the shaggy-dog story Michelle Kind is spinning about being deployed to Afghanistan in 7 days and wants to sell immaculate 1998 Dodge Ram with 44,401 miles perfect condition for $2400 on Craigslist Chicago. After emailing to ascertain details in a few emails it started to feel "too good to be true". First bump was the truck is in Utah--I'm looking on Craig's list Chicago(?). Alright maybe it made a trip home for Thanksgiving? That I brushed off as I have a cousin in SLC just up the road from where the truck is, I fly out and drive it back. . .cool. A couple more emails pass between us today and then a very authentic looking Google Checkout form accompanied with MoneyGram contact person via a Google Checkout etc. I offered to have my cousin do the brokering of the deal, no reply, shipping the truck and a five day inspection period for me??? finally the haze has lifted. As they say, too good to be true. . .free shipping too I guess.

Here is one my friend recieved. No VIN but asking for Google Checkout payment.... Hello, The truck is still for sale. It's registered in my name and the title is clean clear (no loan or lien). It is in great condition, no dents or scratches. It was always garaged and the regular maintenance was done in time. It wasn't involved in any accident not even a minor one. Do not hesitate to email me any questions you have about the truck.  I had 2 preview buyers, both offering more than what I am asking for it now, but one didn't show up and the other called saying he lost the money. I've lost about 2 weeks and a couple of thousand dollars waiting for them so I've decided to lower the price and try to sell it on-line. I'm in desperate need of cash due to several uninspired financial decisions, because of which I ended up with a lot of debts and with no idea how to pay them off. The truck is priced for a fast sale, so it would be better if you don't need financing. I'm currently signed up for a protection program offered by Google Checkout and I would like to close the deal through them. If you are not aware of this program you should know that it will allow you to test drive and inspect the truck before paying me. You will have a 7-day inspection period to decide whether you want to keep the truck or not before they release the funds to me. Google Checkout is safe. If you agree with Google Checkout's terms and conditions and have cash available let me know and I'll ask them to fill you in with all the transaction details.Look forward hearing from you,

Just got this from a Craigslist ad: Hello,    My name is Kelly Brouwer and I'm so glad to see your interest in purchasing my 2009 Suzuki KING QUAD 4X4 750 CC. What I can tell you in a few words is that I am an individual seller, I am not a dealer and this is my first action of this kind on the Internet. The wheeler was used for hunting, has title clean with only 292 miles 29 hours, automatic, 750 CC, automatic, selectable 2 or 4 wheel drive, the wheeler has never been in the mud. Plastics are in excellent condition and are not all scratched up. wheeler has been serviced 5 times, always kept full of fuel with fuel stabilizer in the fuel. My wheeler starts right up and runs great as it should, was garage kept like the Best toy for joy. Bought it when i was serving in U.S. Army base near Salt Lake City, Utah and now I am deployed in Roma, Italy. The wheeler will be delivered from Salt Lake City, UT, US. Since the atv is in military base, with no access you can not go there and take it( I thought you might want to see it there, so I've asked them to allow viewers to inspect the atv but their reply was: "We are not a showroom!" and they are right ), only the Logistic Department can deliver it, because the wheeler is in their custody. Shipping may take anywhere between 2 to 4 business days depending on the destination without any shipping tax, the shipping is induced in price. I have dropped my price to $2,200 (purchase price) since this is an Urgent Sale! and I need to sell it before November 30th when I will be deployed in Iraq with my platoon replacing the troops scheduled to come home. If you're interested to conclude this purchase in a timely manner email me your Complete Name and Shipping Address to open a case with Google Checkout they will contact you to explain the entire procedure. The financial part will be managed by them, which means that you will have a 10 days inspection period before committing to buy the atv. In this way both, buyer and seller are 100% covered during the steps of this transaction. Hope to hear from you soon, Sergeant. Medical Nurse   Kelly Brouwer   PS: for more pictures of the atv click here or copy the link in internet explorer: http://s1104.photobucket.com/albums/h331/2009SuzukiKINGQUAD4X475CC/ Pictures speak for them self...

I responded to an add in our local online paper. It's still there as of the time of this posting: http://newstimes.kaango.com/ads/viewad/print?adid=19937912 Here's the email that I got in response. This is from two separate emails. It's a shame that they are using our men and women from the armed services, and those names seem to be real. My last response was asking for a direct phone call. I doubt I'll get this... On Nov 27, 2011, at 11:26 AM, Eric J. wrote: Well I sealed the Jeep in an US Air Forces warehouse at Travis AFB in CA. It is ready to be shipped and a truck service I have arranged will deliver it to your place. The delivery will be door-to-door, at your exact location, so you will not have to pick it up from somewhere. The VIN is 1J4FA49s9Yp745880, automatic, 4WD, 33000miles. Look at the attachments for more pictures of the Jeep and a Carfax report.    So we will be using Google Checkout as a supervisor for the transaction. Basically they will monitor the entire process. They will secure the payment and they will also supervise the shipping process and they will make sure we are both on the same page. The main idea is that Google act as a neutral third party in this transaction. Your money is fully guaranteed by Google  because you will send payment to an Google Checkout account and not directly to me. So, no funds exchange hands until you inspect the vehicle. I trust this will meet with your approval as it does not expose you to any potential financial loss. After that they will either send payment to me (if you will accept the vehicle) or refund you (if you won't like the vehicle after the inspection). Though I'm sure you will love the car and will not want to return it, it's good to know that you do have this option available.  Also tags on the jeep just expired, so you can't drive the car back home.  So If you wish to proceed just shoot me and email with your legal name(for the bill of sale) and a delivery address, a phone # where you can be reached and I will initiate the deal through Google Checkout(this info will also ease and speed up all the paperwork).  I apologize if it seems like I'm pushing on this deal but I really want to be sure everything is clarified before any further steps.   Air Force Reserve Command Eric J.

I have some pictures with it, but I'll have to download it from my camera. Anyway the jeep runs great and it wasn't involved any accidents it also have a clean title. So registering it under your name won't be an issue. I serve the USAF and I was stationed at Travis AFB, California. Of course I am not asking you to buy a cat in the bag so we can arrange for an inspection and I can have the jeep delivered to you through the USAF Air Cargo, so it will cost me nothing. However I am not so familiar with online sales so I will have to use a service from a business-specialized company. I'm asking $4300 on the 2000 Wrangler so if you have the money available(no loans please) and still interested please reply and I'll get back to you with the pictures,VIN report and whatever information possible for you. Looking forward for you email, Air Force Reserve Command Eric J. Pena, 349th Security Forces Squadron Travis AFB, California

Im in the same Boat now. Ive contacted this man William Mcgee too and he offered me a segway for 2200. I'm beginning to think this is a scam swell because of his automated responses and unreachability.  his youtube account also is blocked for comments and his account seems to be disabled. let me know what ended up happening with this guy. I'm gonna offer to pay by paypal, if he doesn't accept, i won't buy it.

  Thank you for your inquiry regarding my vehicle. It is in perfect condition, there's not even a scratch or any dents on it. Everything about it is in perfect condition. I have clear title for it, no liens or loans. The vehicle is priced to sell quickly and the final price that I'm asking for it is $2,500 including shipping and handling costs. My husband died in Iraq 3 months ago and me and my daughter decided to sell the house and move to my sister's. The vehicle reminds us very much of my husband but we finally understood that we have to move on with our lives. Although my husband will have his place in our hearts forever. I can't afford to take days off my work for this sale so i'm trying to sell them online.If you are really interested in purchasing the vehicle please reply to this email and i will provide further instructions regarding payment and delivery. I will appreciate an answer as soon as possible.Regards!P.S.: Below you will a full description. Click this link to view all the pictures i have taken for this sale

I ALMOST FELL FOR IT!! bodyHello, 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 Google's shipping center in Chicago,IL and from there it will be shipped to my buyer's address. I have registered the vehicle with Google Checkout Protection Program so a local pick-up is not an option.This transaction is covered by Google Checkout'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 the Google Checkout in the past and all my transaction ended succesfully. You pay to Google Checkout and they will transfer the funds to me only after you get the vehicle. The financial part of our transaction is going through Google Checkout and here are the steps:- I need your full name, shipping address and phone#;- I will forward this information to Google Checkout purchase protection department and they will start our transaction;- Google Checkout 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 Checkout 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 number, in order to start the transaction!I am looking forward to hearing from you. Melissa Agin

HI EVERYONE , i ALMOST FELL FOR THIS SCAM BECAUSE I WANTED TO GET A GOOD CAR DEAL. I'M VERY UPSET ABOUT THIS SCAM AND WANT TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS. I WOULD LIKE FOR EACH OF YOU TO SENT A EMAIL TO PEOPLE WITH AUTHORITY. SUCH AS JAG, INSPECTOR GENERAL OF THE DEPTMENT OF TREASURY,TIGA WHICH IS ARE THE POLICE FORCE FOR THE IRS AND YOUR STATE  ATTORNEY GENERAL. WHEN YOU TALK TO SOMEONE DEALING WITH THE MILITARY ADVISED THEM OF THE FRAUD BEING USED IN THE AIRFORCE AND ARMY NAME. WHEN YOU TALK TO THE IRS EXPLAIN TO THAT THESE POEPLE ARE GETTING REVENUE WITHOUT REPORTING IT FOR TAXES, iF YOU CAN REMEMBER MANY PEOPLE LIKE AL CAPONE WAS ARRESTED FOR THESE CRIMES.

Google Checkout will keep the money until you inspect/drive the vehicle. This is how the buyers protection Program works: 1. I will contact Google Checkout and give all the info about this deal. 2. They will email us the forms which are needed for our deal. 3. You will send the payment ($ 2400) to Google Checkout and they will notify me to ship the truck to your location. 4. After you will inspect/drive the truck and decide to keep it, Google Checkout will forward me the funds and the deal is done. Remember you have 5 days to test it. If by any reason the truck is not as described or if you find any problems with it I will pay for the returning fees. I'm sure it won't be the case because it's a state of art looking and working vehicle. I apologize if it seems like I'm pushing on this deal but I really want to be sure everything is clarified before any further steps. If you wish to proceed further, I will need your: -complete name, -shipping address

Hi,   Sorry for this late reply. My 2004 Mazda MAZDA3 Hatchback  4 Cyl has 89,874 km's is in excellent condition, non smoker, no liens or loans, it has been very well maintained. The exterior is in great shape, the interior looks great with no rips or tears in the seating. No accident history.The car is certified and E-tested.The car have new winter tiers and new oil .   I am selling it at this price ($2,800) because I have just been promoted at work as Executive Chief and it's a moral obligation for everyone who gets this job to get a Hybrid car, to set an example for his team and to encourage the people to pay more attention to the forest and the nature around them (I work for Greenpeace Canada), I am the 1st and only owner of this beautiful car. I want to sell it asap and a fast sale can be done only at a low price. The transaction will be made through Google Checkout for the safety of both of us.   If you're interested in purchasing just email me with your full name, shipping address include postal code and your phone number, so I can notify Google Checkout that you are selected as my buyer and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure.

So saw this ad on Craigslist and forwarded to my brother since he really wants a Tacoma. Price was excellent. Alarm bells did go off and advised caution. He emailed him asking for more information and sent the followup email below. While the method has changed from Google Checkout to Ebay Motors VPP, it stays the same in principal. It did not take long to have proof of what this was, I appreciate the prior posters and in that spirit, posting the new wave of this for others. I am also reporting to craigslist so they can get these ads taken down ASAP. (People using the name of the Military to seem more credible really pisses me the hell off. Of course, it doesn't help him that he isn't listed on the marines.mil website under the 4th Combat Engineer Battalion Hello ,   I'm selling my beautiful, well maintained 2003 Toyota Tacoma Doublecab because my brigade have been mobilized for deployment to Afghanistan. After we complete our training, we will deploy to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. The price is low because I need to sell it before 21 of December. Paint shines, zero dings/dents,no accident. Non-smoker,always garaged and covered. It comes with all the documents needed for registration. The title is clear (no lien). It is gently used with only 82.000 miles !   I'm asking $2,200.00 this price includes door to door shipping, handling and insurance fees. The truck is located in Monroeville, PA.   Giving the nature of this transaction we can escrow the payment with eBay Motors Vehicle Purchase Protection (VPP) program and this way you're not buying something sight unseen. This program covers only vehicle transactions that are completed ON eBay.com so I will post the truck on eBay and I will give you the URL link to press ''buy it now'' option .   I've attached 45 photos.

I almost feel for this, the context of the add is the same but for a diff car, as soon as they mentioned shipping company and car being held in Licoln Nebraska, red flags went up, so I just googled scams on "google checkout" and found this site w/ threads, thank God I found this site because if I didn't I most likely would have gone through with it. Wow, I guess there are scammers everywhere I turn. I thought I would have learned my leason after being scammed on ebay a few years ago for $1,700.00. thx much for thread.....

I almost fell into the same scam.  The people on craigs list was selling a 2000 Jeep Cherokee for @2160 and it had 112,000 miles on it.  They said the car was in Miami, FL and they will send it once i have paid for it.  They never gave me their phone number or anything.  We only shared contact through emails and that was very fishy.  I called western union to see if this transaction was true and they said it was COMPLETELY a scam.  The seller said they got a new job and had to move and they was going through a divorce.  IF YOU WANT TO FIND OUT IF IT A SCAM, CALL WESTERN UNION AT 1 800 448 1492

I was actually a victim of this scam sad to say. The seller posed as a woman from the army. The email is attached below. I should have done my research before. Now I don't know what to do. Hello,Thank you for your interest in purchasing my car. It is in perfect condition, with no scratches on it, no damage. Everything about this car functions perfectly. If you are interested in buying, the price is CAD $ 3,500.I work in the army and I was transferred to the APO AE 09459, United Kingdom so I can't use it anymore and I've decided to sell it. The car is currently stored in a warehouse near CFB Cold Lake, AB and I must pay a daily fee for storing so I priced it low to sell it fast. I'll handle the shipping, so this will be free of charge for you.The transaction will be done through Google Checkout for our own protection, no money first to me. Your funds will be 100% insured until you will receive and inspect the car, and I will be sure that I will receive the payment.You will have 10 days from the time you receive the car to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not.If you want to buy my car then e-mail me:Full name for the title,Shipping addressAs soon as I have this information I'll start the official procedure, and they will notify you about this. You'll also receive important guidelines + instructions from them (please go through them exactly).Looking forward to hearing from you,Karen Millar

The story is similair to ones ive read here  but the thing that caught my attention was that there was a word that was spelled wrong in the "guarantee policy". Why would a huge company like Google checkout  overlook something like that> Anyway, thanks

Note the similar formatting and the near verbatim copying of "I am selling it at this final price $2,650 because my wife died 2 months ago (she had a heart attack) and brings me bad memories and that's the reason I want to sell it asap"   .. note to people out there, if it is too good to be true, it probably is... Some people are just evil.. Hi ,My 2003 Cadillac CTS with automatic transmission has 70,000 miles is in excellent condition,non smoker,no liens or loans,it has been very well maintained with a clean title and no accident history, more pictures available . I am selling it at this final price $2,650 because my wife died 2 months ago (she had a heart attack) and brings me bad memories and that's the reason I want to sell it asap .

BE AWARE:  The thieves and scammers are still out there, 1/12/12.  I saw an add on CraigsList for a 2003 34' Airstream Classic travel trailer, for $8K.  The actual resale value is probably around $30K.  The pictures indicated it was in pristine condition.  I assumed it was a scam, so started to have some fun with this punk.  I started an e-mail dialog, showing interest.  The seller, ss.crawford@msn.com (Sam S. Crawford), responded with a lavish note about how he was in the U.S. Marine Corp in Arizona and was being deployed, and lots of other lies.  He attached a whole file of pictures, provided the VIN # of the trailer.  Also visible in the pictures was the Wally Bynum  number on the front and back of the trailer.  It only took a few telephone calls to discover the VIN # was for a 1983 Airstream trailer, and the WB number was not registered.  The idiot wanted me to put $8K in a Google Checkout account.  I played with this fool for about a half dozen e-mails, until I finally got bored.  At the risk of being repetitive, DO NOT get suckered by these scammers.  If it's too good to be true, it is a scam.  DO NOT ever engage in a sale where you send money to any type of escrow account.  Google Checkout is just one of many legitimate   processes, where these thieves prey.

I just fell for it. Didn't find this site until after the fact. Was wondering if you ever got anything back. I'm so pissed at myself for falling for this but I think Google Checkout should be partly responsible as well. If they had a posted phone # to contact them to verify certain things I never would have gone through with it. I hope you found something out to get your money back. I'm filing a complaint with the FBI in Salt Lake City, Utah tomorrow and anyone else I can think of. Totally, totally pissed. Good luck with yours.

01/16/2012 06:08 am

Google Checkout needs to post a phone # that people can call to verify these transactions. It would have saved me 2,000 not to mention the fee to send the wire transfer. No phone # on there site makes them just as shady.To say the least, I haven't  gotten over it yet.

01/16/2012 06:36 am

I just fell for this scam myself sorry to say. I wish I had know about this site before the fact. Google Checkout  should be held somewhat responsible for this scam themselves due to not having a contact # posted somewhere so people such as myself could check this out. If they had I would not be in this mess right now. I kept sending messages but would never get the information I was asking for. Now I know it wasn't really their site. It is a phony that the scammers have set up. This woman claimed to be in Provo, Utah and is selling a Dodge pickup. Sick, sick, sick about this whole thing and am just beginning to file reports on this. My truck is suppose to show up tomorrow. Haha

The trailer is already at the shipping company in San Diego, CA  ready for the shipping.The shipping process will take between 4 -7 days, depending on your location. I have a contract with Google Checkout so this deal must go through them.As I said in the first email I work as a casino dealer on a cruise ship and I can't meet you or bring you the trailer, so that's why I am using a shipping company.Since this is an online transaction I wanted the both of us to be safe so for this deal I am using  Google Checkout , and that means that you have 5 days from the time you receive the trailer to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not.Here is how it works:1.First of all I will need  the following details from you:   - Full Name   - Full Shipping Address2. After I will receive the details from you, I will forward them to  Google Checkout.3. After they will process your info, they will send us both invoices.Your will make the payment to Google Checkout and the funds will be 100% insured by Google Checkout.4. Google Checkout will contact me and I will ship the trailer to you. After you receive the trailer you will have 5 days to test, verify and do whatever you need to the trailer.If you will buy it, then I will receive the payment from Google Checkout. Please take into consideration that I will get paid only after you receive the trailer and make sure everything is as agreed.5. If you will decide that you will not buy it, Google Checkout will refund you and I will have the shipping company come pick up my trailer.If you wish to make the transaction, please send me the necessary info so that we can proceed.Thank you

I've been screwing around with these people for a while now, just for fun.  one thing i can't figure out, though, is the address of the "google agent" that they ask you to send the money to. obviously as soon as you send the money to this "agent" its gone. but i google mapped the address they gave me, and it is real, and i saw the home on street view and everything. who's address is this? are the scammers really providing their home address? i'm very curious about this.  any thoughts?

This huszie ! As I told you in my first email, I divorced, I got a new job and moved to Billings MT. Before leaving I had prearranged the deal with Google Checkout so my presence isn't necessary. The car is located in Billings, at the shipping company, ready to be delivered. The car will arrive at your address in 2-3 working days. The shipping cost is included in the total price of the car! It will come along with it's documents,signed title on the front and back and the notarized bill of sale so you can easily transfer the registration in your name.All you have to do it to visit your local DMV office(with the papers provided) and transfer the registration in your name . You will have 5 days to test it and inspect the 2002 Saab 9-5 ARC.After the inspection period in case you don't want to buy it , I will pay for the return , but it will not be the case the 2002 Saab 9-5  is in perfect condition like new. So if you want to make this deal I need the following details from you: full name and address phone # After I will have all this details I will forward them to Google Checkout and I will proceed this transaction. Google Checkout will contact you with all the details that you need to complete this deal and also to see that I am covered by them and that I am legit seller. Waiting your email with the requested details. Thanks, Amanda

I filed all the information I have with ic3 today. Anyone that has fallen victim to any of these scams should file a report with your local police authorities and also with ic3 and anyone else you can think of. If everyone will report, the authorities will hopefully get more involved in catching these scum bags. I know it's a long shot but we can't just shove these scams under the rug and move on. Every day there are many others that will go through this nightmare unknowing. Somehow, I don't know how, but this has got to be stopped. Every little bit will help. Please file reports.      www.ic3.gov

You have saved me a bundel of money as I too almost fell prey. I litereally was on my way out the door to find the nearest "Western Union" as instructed by Google Checkout so I could purchase this great 2002 Denali, only 84,00 miles, etc. My gut said, do more research, $1900.00 bucks is too good to be true. Thank you God for the delay in getting my check due to the holiday! I will follow up by posting the exact emails I sent.

Is there a craigslist Google checkout scam? I've contacted someone named Megan Dean selling a 2006 Honda civic real cheap.  Wants me to wire money to Google checkout.  She said the money will be held in this account until after I receive the car being shipped from Idaho.  She said the military will take care of any shipping costs.

They said that I will pay through google checkout, & than the money will stay with them until after I receive the truck & than after 5 days of inspection, google will call & verify that the truck is indeed what I want, & if not they will take it back, & my money will be returned in 3 days

Everything about it is in perfect condition. I have clear title for it, no liens or loans. The truck is priced to sell quickly and the final price that I'm asking for it is $3,000 including shipping and handling costs. My husband died in Iraq 3 months ago and me and my daughter decided to sell the house and move to my sister's. The truck reminds us very much of my husband but we finally understood that we have to move on with our lives. Although my husband will have his place in our hearts forever. 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 truck please reply to this email and i will provide further instructions regarding payment and delivery. Regards! Colleen Russel P.S.: Below you will find a full description and the pictures i have taken for this sale. Please take a closer look before you decide. Mileage: 89,572 miles Title: Clear Features Body type: Pickup truck Transmission: Automatic Drivetrain: Four Wheel Drive Engine: 3.4L V6 Cylinder Gasoline Fuel Fuel type: Gasoline Exterior color: Black Interior color: Tan This 2003 Tacoma is in awesome shape. For the year you wont find one nicer! The interior is very clean including under the floormats,nothing is broke missing etc. It has just recently had a new timing belt,AC compressor and all 4 brand new tires. I as well have had it serviced and checked out every 3000 miles. It has vent visors bed liner and bed cover on it. The brakes have 75% life left in them and work well with no pulsing or pulling. This truck still drives like new with everything in working order and will make the buyer a very good truck for many years to come! It does have premium sound and a CD player.

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. I have to let you know that i listed all over US because shipping is included in the price. The truck is at Google's shipping center in Pittsburg, PA and from there it will be shipped to my buyer's address. I have registered the truck with Google Checkout Protection Program so a local pick-up is not an option.This transaction is covered by Google Checkout'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 truck will be my concern. I strongly assure you it will not be the case for a refund. I have used Google Checkout in the past and all my transactions ended successfully. You pay to Google Checkout and they will transfer the funds to me only after you get the truck. The financial part of our transaction is going through Google Checkout and here are the steps: - I need your full name, shipping address and phone#; - I will forward this information to Google Checkout purchase protection department and they will start our transaction; - Google Checkout 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 truck you will have another 5 days to inspect it. - when the inspection period ends, Google Checkout contacts you and if there are any issues with the truck, they will fully refund you within 3 business days and the truck will be shipped back at my expense. If all is good with the truck, 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 number, in order to start the transaction! Google Checkout will send you important guidelines and instructions regarding the protection program and payment instructions. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

My husband and I  checked into a 2000 Ford Ranger, that was suppose to be local for us.  Turns out its not.  We hear back via email from a "Cindy Dawson", of course she cant talk on the phone because her two year old messed up her phone.  She has just went through a terriable divorce, she needs the money to start a new life for her and her daughter, but she has moved out of state for a great job. She is very proper with how she words things, almost like a script. I was really looking forward to buying this truck for my son and unfortuantly got his hopes up as well. Thank the Lord we did not send any money, because I am sure this is a scam.  I am very thankful that I read all the comments before it went to far and we lost our money. I hate the fact that these scam artist know anything about us.

patrickarends@comcast.net  is trying to scam people with a 2009 BMW M3 for $15,000. Don't get fooled! Here is their ploy: Thank you for your interest in my 2009 BMW M3. I would like apologize for my late reply. The car is in excellent running condition (no damages, accidents or scratches of course) comes with a clear title (under my name) and has 18,000 miles. There is no lien on the vehicle, there will be no monthly payments, no take over payments, just final price ($15,000). There is a reason for selling it for such a low price. I am passing through a divorce with my wife and I need to get rid of it fast. I am located in Sylvania OH and I have the car with me. I will ship it from here on my expense through DAS (Dependable Auto Shippers). Giving the nature of this transaction we can escrow the payment with Google Checkout, and this way you're not buying something sight unseen. If you are not aware of this program you should know that it will allow you to test drive and inspect the vehicle before paying me. You will have a 15-days inspection period to decide whether you want to keep the vehicle or not before they release the funds to me. If you are still interested just let me know and I'll get back to you with further details about the transaction.Hi, Thank you for getting back to me. I've attached the carfax car history. The car is already at the shipping company in Sylvania OH packed and ready for the shipping. I have a contract with Google Checkout so this deal must go through them. According with Google Checkout you have 15 days from the time you receive the car to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not (not your case). Shipping will be my part, I will handle it through DAS (Dependable Auto Shippers) and it will take no more then 4 days top(depending on your exact location). Here is how it will work: First of all I will need  the following details from you: - Full name, Full shipping address - Phone number, preferably cell number After I will receive the details from you, I will forward them to Google Checkout, they will process your info and send us both invoices. The invoice will contains payment details, terms and protection policy. The payment will be done via bank-to-bank wire transfer. After you receive the car you will have 15 days to test, verify and do whatever you need to the car. If you refuse the car Google Checkout will send you a full refund. I will get paid only after the inspection period is over. If you wish to make the transaction, please send me the necessary info so that we can proceed. Looking forward to hearing from you, Patrick Arends Tyler,  I'm sorry but I don't have a phone right now as my cell phone wasn't getting reception worth a darn out here so I cancelled them. Like I've told you I am going through a divorce with my husband and I moved recently in this house where I have a lot things to do. If you want to buy please let me know because I have another two potential buyers waiting for an answer from me.

Hi again, As i told you, at this moment I am in WA state in a military base, getting ready for Afghanistan (I hope for the last time). I do a special training program everyday day and I am not allowed to get out of the unit or make calls whenever I want. The shipping will take 3 to 5 days depending on your location and it’s not a problem because i have considerable discount from eBay and I can do it at no cost for you. As long as I'm dealing with eBay and they can ship the vehicle anywhere in the US,I listed the car in several states because it increases my chances to get it sold much faster. I want to mention that the vehicle was inspected by eBay and fulfils the CO Emission standards from all the 50 states so it wouldn't be a problem for you to register it in your state. You will receive the car along with all the documents including title, bill of sale, 2 set of keys, full service records and more. Because it is a large transaction, we will complete the deal only using an authorized third part like eBay because I already prearranged the whole process with them, using their escrow Safe Pay Program for vehicles not listed on their website. The car is located in the eBay warehouse in WA (ready for delivery). I asked them to allow viewers to go there and inspect the car but their reply was "We are not a showroom!" In this case, I will offer a 5-day period to inspect the car from the moment you receive it, before I'll have your money. I think this is more than fair for both of us.The payment will be handled by eBay Escrow, and you will benefit of 5 days inspection time period (test drive) and the option to accept or reject the car on my expense. If you are still interested just send me your full name and shipping address. I will forward your info to eBay and they will notify you about our deal. Like this you'll be able to talk directly with them and ask all you want to know. Regards!!

omg i  just had a guy do this to me!  this is what he sent me Hi, I've previously told you,I'm currently involved in a military program, temporarily based in FL, as I'll be changing it for Afghanistan very soon. Due to military security reasons I'm restricted from leaving the unit's facility under any purpose and have strictly limited phone access. The shipping won't be a problem; military has a considerable discount, so I can handle it by myself, with no charges whatsoever on your account. The car will be sent along with all its documents including title, bill of sale, 2 sets of keys, full service records and everything else you'll need. Because it's such a large transaction, I'd suggest using an authorized third party, Google Checkout for instance. I've done some research and that's the safest way to do it. That's why, I've taken the liberty to prearrange things with them, using their escrow Google Checkout. I thought you might want to see it there, so I've asked them to allow viewers to inspect the car; but their reply was: "We are not a showroom!" No worries cause I'll grant you a 5 days inspection period (to test drive it) from the moment you receive it, before Google Checkout escrow releases your money to me. The car is located in their warehouse in  Jacksonville, FL (ready for delivery).The shipping company will deliver your vehicle to your front door at a time convenient to you. Standard shipping is usually delivered in 3-4 business days. If you are determined in buying the vehicle, please send me an email with your name and shipping address. I will post the transaction mentioning the vehicle details, the price etc on Google Checkout website and confirm you as the buyer. After the transaction is processed they will send you the invoice explaining the exact procedure...it's quite simple. I TOLD HIM I KNEW IT WAS A SCAM..  Thank you! ...  i told him i knew it was a scam .. because he posted this in a south dakota furniture on craigslist!

Hi again, I'm currently serving on active duty in the USMC 10th PSYOP Bt. and at this point and time I'm stationed on a military facility located approximately 50 miles from Casper, WY. My battalion was assigned to the 96th Squadron CADST and scheduled for deployment in the next couple days. The trailer is here with me, but to pick it up is essential to be here in the next 2 days. If you can't manage to come here before I'll be moved to my next duty station, the trailer can be transported by a military carrier, delivery charges will be included in the actual selling price. Due to the urgent nature of this sale, I'd like to conclude this transaction using Google Checkout, they basically provides a secure and controlled environment that allows the payment transfer between buyer and seller. To eliminate any concerns, you will have a 5 days inspection period, prior purchase approval. After the inspection period ends and you decide not to keep the trailer, shipping back will be my concern. If you want to proceed and you have sufficient funds to complete the transaction, please email me back with the following information. - Your Full Name and Shipping Address (Home Address, City, State, zip/Postal Code) -  Info. required by Google Checkout, they will contact you with simple, easy to follow step by step guidelines. - Your Phone Number: (Home,Mobile,Office) - Info. required by the shipping company, they will call you with delivery/pickup instructions 1 day ahead so you can communicate what time schedule works best for you to receive the trailer. I look forward to your response, Richard Bennet

im so glad i have read this, He tried so hard to scam me, saying He was in the military. He wanted me to use Google Checkout to pay.  His Name was Jake  Irvan selling a 1995 Ford Wrecker, Icant believe they use the military and our army to steal our money. We need to come up with a system to catch these theives. I have 4 kids and am glad this site informed me of this scam. He used these same exact words.THANK YOU for letting me know.

Hello, Thank you for your inquiry regarding my truck. It is in perfect condition, there's not even a scratch or any dents on it. Everything about it is in perfect condition. I have clear title for it, no liens or loans. The truck is priced to sell quickly and the final price that I'm asking for it is $3,000 including shipping and handling costs. My husband died in Iraq 3 months ago and me and my daughter decided to sell the house and move to my sister's. The truck reminds us very much of my husband but we finally understood that we have to move on with our lives. Although my husband will have his place in our hearts forever. 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 truck please reply to this email and i will provide further instructions regarding payment and delivery. Regards! Colleen Russel P.S.: Below you will find a full description and the pictures i have taken for this sale. Please take a closer look before you decide. Mileage: 89,572 miles Title: Clear FeaturesBody type: Pickup truck Transmission: Automatic Drivetrain: Four Wheel Drive Engine: 3.4L V6 Cylinder Gasoline Fuel Fuel type: Gasoline Exterior color: Black Interior color: Tan This 2003 Tacoma is in awesome shape. For the year you wont find one nicer! The interior is very clean including under the floormats,nothing is broke missing etc. It has just recently had a new timing belt,AC compressor and all 4 brand new tires. I as well have had it serviced and checked out every 3000 miles. It has vent visors bed liner and bed cover on it. The brakes have 75% life left in them and work well with no pulsing or pulling. This truck still drives like new with everything in working order and will make the buyer a very good truck for many years to come! It does have premium sound and a CD player.   Thank you for your kind thoughts. 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. I have to let you know that i listed all over US because shipping is included in the price. The truck is at Google's shipping center in Pittsburg, PA and from there it will be shipped to my buyer's address. I have registered the truck with Google Checkout Protection Program so a local pick-up is not an option.This transaction is covered by Google Checkout'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 truck will be my concern. I strongly assure you it will not be the case for a refund. I have used Google Checkout in the past and all my transactions ended successfully. You pay to Google Checkout and they will transfer the funds to me only after you get the truck. The financial part of our transaction is going through Google Checkout and here are the steps: - I need your full name, shipping address and phone#; - I will forward this information to Google Checkout purchase protection department and they will start our transaction; - Google Checkout 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 truck you will have another 5 days to inspect it. - when the inspection period ends, Google Checkout contacts you and if there are any issues with the truck, they will fully refund you within 3 business days and the truck will be shipped back at my expense. If all is good with the truck, 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 number, in order to start the transaction! Google Checkout will send you important guidelines and instructions regarding the protection program and payment instructions. I am looking forward to hearing from you. In response to the message from KELLY BURCH, Wed 7:23 PM Colleen Russel Let me explain you why I chose Google Checkout to complete this transaction online and why I can't make a phone conversation right now. I am not able to make this transaction in the classic way because I've suffered an ears surgery last month and I am making Wed 8:44 PM Wednesday, February 01, 2012 8:44 PMColleen Russel [colruse@gmail.com]   Let me explain you why I chose Google Checkout to complete this transaction online and why I can't make a phone conversation right now. I am not able to make this transaction in the classic way because I've suffered an ears surgery last month and I am making a treatment with liquid solutions witch makes my life impossible. All people whisper to me and I must continue this way for a few months . Imagine, I would prefer to give a call and set up all the details instead of writing e-mails, but I don't have other alternative. I have used Google Checkout several times in the past (as a seller but as well as a buyer) and everything was perfect. I can assure you the transaction will end smoothly for both of us. It's a fast and safe way to make an online transaction. If you have any questions please email me and I will answer you asap.I understand your point of view also and I don't want to force you to buy something in a way you are not comfortable with. Sending the payment to Google Checkout places you under no obligation to purchase the truck if you are not satisfied with it. It enables Google Checkout to secure the transaction until you receive and inspect the truck.

I WAS ABOUT TO GIVE INTO FRAUD !!!! I WAS GOING  TO PURCHASE A CAR BY GOOGLE ACOUNT UNITL...... I RECIVED THIS FIRST LEETER FROM THEM ...... Hi again, As I've told you, at this moment I am in Hawaii 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 vehicle way below market value, is because I would like to help ease the burden of my sisters medical expenses, which she has acquired due to a serious illness. The shipping will take 3 to 5 days and it’s not a problem because I will have the car shipped by an Air Force cargo plane so there won't be any additional shipping costs. Also I will arrange for a truck to transport the vehicle to your home address. You will receive it along with all the documents including title, bill of sale, 2 set of keys, full service records and more. Because it is a large transaction, we will complete the deal only using an authorized third part like Google Checkout because I already prearranged the whole process with them. The vehicle is located in their warehouse in Honolulu (sealed and ready for delivery). The money must be sent first to an Google Checkout agent and will be kept safe until the buyer receives and inspects the vehicle. I will offer a 5-day period to inspect the car from the moment you receive it (and the option to accept or reject the vehicle on my expense), before I'll have your money. I think this is more than fair for both of us. If you are still interested just send me your full name and shipping address. I will forward your info to Google Checkout and they will notify you about our deal. They will let you know what you have to do for the payment. Like this you'll be able to talk directly with them and ask all you want to know. Thank you  Reply  Forward PLEASE BE AWARE OF SCAMS !

My husband died 2 months ago (he had a heart attack) and this vehicle brings me bad memories and that's the reason that I want to sell it. I along with my daughter decided to sell the house and we moved to my sister in Nebraska.

I'm so glad I did my research. I was almost scammed out of 2200 dollars and as a mother of four money is tight. The guy claimed he was a sgt. in the military and that he was currently located in Madrid Spain and he needed to sell his 2006 Toyota Tacoma because he was being deployed to Afghanistan. His name was John Duggan. Hello, This 2006 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab, runs and drives excellent. It has been extremely well maintained with a full service history, Only 78,200 miles! Transmission is Automatic shifts smoothly and the 4x4 operates perfectly. The interior is all original. The truck has all of its original floor mats all books, complete set of tools and keys. Everything works in the truck lights, gauges, radio, seats, windows, locks, a/c blows ice cold, etc... It has no leaks or drips and does not smoke at all, slightly used in 100% working and looking conditions with a clear title free of liens. I bought it when i was serving in Fort Lewis, U.S. Army base in Washington and now I am deployed in Madrid, Spain. The truck will be delivered from WA, US.I have dropped my price to $2,200 (purchase price) since this is an Urgent Sale! and I need to sell it before February 19th, when I will be deployed in Afghanistan with my platoon replacing the troops scheduled to come home.If you're interested to conclude this purchase in a timely manner email me your: Full Name and Shipping address, to open a case with Google Checkout. They will contact you to explain the entire procedure. The financial part will be managed by them, which means that you will have a 10 days inspection period before committing to buy the truck. In this way both, buyer and seller are 100% covered during the steps of this transaction. Hope to hear from you soon!Sgt. John Duggan PS: I have made a photobucket album for the truck:  http://s1069.photobucket.com/albums/u474/johnduggan1/

Thank God for this website and doing my research, because I was really considering this transaction!!!  Be very careful!!!

I got this exact same email but unfortunately I fell for the scam. When I checked google checkout I didn't get any hits on a scam. After I thought about it for a day I went about making the transaction. Everything looked legit so I didn't research any further - there was my mistake!!! I realized 5 days later when I hadn't heard anything that I might have been involved in a scam I googled google checkout scams and sure enough here it all is. I'm out the $1900, which obviously I cant get back,  but I'm more ashamed that I fell for something like this. I am usually super extra careful and extra cynical when it comes to purchasing anything online - it turns out I was making more of an emotional decision than a rational one...

Hey,   I will make the deal only trough Google Checkout, because I am a member of the Google Checkout and using this service you will get a 7 days testing period after delivery. During that 7 days testing period I will not be getting any money. If the vehicle is not like described, it will be shipped back on my expense and they will give you a full refund. This way you will be able to inspect the vehicle before committing to buy it and I know that you have the money and you are not just fooling around. If interested please include in your next email your contact info for shipping (name, address and #) so I can open a transaction with Google Checkout. who here got this email and fell for it i dont wanna make the same mistake im a single mom and moneys really tight right now

DO NOT trust a "Ben Martel" trying to sell you a car. I was looking for a classic car to purchase on Autotraderclassic.com and found an unbelievable deal on a 55 Chevy. Well it was unbelievable because it was a fraud. This guy wanted me to use Google checkout which looked a little suspicious to me. It was linked to Western Union and I was told that the funds would be held until I approved them to be released. I called Western Union and they are in no way affiliated with Google Checkout. I'm glad that I caught this before sending $13,500 to this crook. So beware of Ben Martel a middle eastern man with a passion for American classic cars.

Hi, I'am reading all your comments because I'm not sure if the car that was in the Craigslist is a SCAM but it looks like it is a SCAM. He is selling nissan Altima S for only $1,900.00 That he is in military and will need to sell the car before Feb.28. I'm suspecting it's a SCAM. Planning not to deal with him anymore. I was asking his contact number but he said due to security reason blah blah blah...And he mention Google checkout too. I would to inform the public so they don't  fall on this scam. Guys Thanks for the information I read from all your comments.God bless you!

My fiancee and I were dealing with a person named Joshua King selling a 2004 BMW for $2900.00. He said he needed to sell it fast because he was being deployed to Afhganistan. We were sent all the information needed to complete the purchase through Google Checkout. As i was scrolling down I realized i wouldn't be paying Google Checkout instead we were suppose to pay Western Union and send a reciept to Google Checkout. I decided to research a little more and found this sight with so many similar stories. I am so thankful i did not pay anything to these scammers!!! Please be careful and be on the look out for JOSHUA KING he is a SCAMMER!!!!!

Barbara La Torre.  2005 Land Rover.  Barb.to@msn.com.   $11,000.   Few things to watch for  1.  the price is WAY below the car's bluebook value (read:  too good to be true rule) 2.  contact with the seller is sketchy.  3.  they want a cash sale, not certified check, not a check from your financing company - (it takes  1 day to get an auto loan why would a seller care if I'm financing the car if at the end of the day they get their money in its entirety?) 4.  look for broken grammar and/or misspelled words, the same emails have been circulating for years - scammers don't bother with spellcheck.  5.  there are certain phrases and circumstances that should ping your instincts:  any version of a sob story or  "i'm not in the country",  "third party", "escrow account",  "I'll contact them to contact you..."

I was trying to buy a toyota truk 2003 from this guy named jack racine he was or is selling a toyota tacoma 2003 .... 97000 mil for $ 2990 this is what he said to me when i asked him for a phone # and addrees etails Hi , I've previously told you, I'm currently involved in a military program, temporarily based in FL, as I'll be changing it for Afghanistan very soon. Due to military security reasons I'm restricted from leaving the unit's facility under any purpose and have strictly limited phone access. The shipping won't be a problem, so I can handle it by myself, with no charges whatsoever on your account. The truck will be sent along with all its documents including title, bill of sale, 2 sets of keys, full service records and everything else you'll need. Because it's such a large transaction, I'd suggest using an authorized third party, Google Checkout for instance. I've done some research and that's the safest way to do it. That's why, I've taken the liberty to prearrange things with them, using their escrow Google Checkout. I thought you might want to see it there, so I've asked them to allow viewers to inspect the truck; but their reply was: "We are not a showroom!" No worries cause I'll grant you a 5 days inspection period (to test drive it) from the moment you receive it, before Google Checkout escrow releases your money to me. The truck is located in their warehouse in Lowell, FL(ready for delivery).The shipping company will deliver your vehicle to your front door at a time convenient to you. Standard shipping is usually delivered in 3-4 business days. If you are determined in buying the vehicle, please send me an email with your name and shipping address. I will post the transaction mentioning the vehicle details, the price etc on Google Checkout website and confirm you as the buyer. After the transaction is processed they will send you the invoice explaining the exact procedure...it's quite simple. Thank you!

Have an individual trying to sell me a 2002 Honda Accord EX and the vehicle is supposedly having to be shipped out of Portland, OR.  The individual claims to work for a cruise ship as a dealer and has not provided me with any contact numbers, only contact is through e-mails.  I have been told that i would have to pay cash through Google Checkout Protection Plan and the vehicle will be delivered to my door in a max of 3 to 5 days and i will have 7 days inspection period to decide if i want car/not.  Supposedly if i agree to purhcase the money will then be released to them.  Individual also stated that they were selling car for $2600.00 because they wanted to get rid of it because there son use to drive it and he passed away a year ago and it brings back bad memories.  Seller is named Isabella Torres.  Has anyone heard of this and what do you think, scam or what?

HERE IS ANOTHER ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!Hi again,I'm currently serving on active duty in the U.S. Marine Corps and I'm stationed on a military training facility located approximately 50 miles from USAG Fort Huachuca, AZ. My assigned unit has been placed in a prepare-to-deploy status for possible deployment later this week. Since I'm busy during my pre-deployment training schedule inspection meetings are available by appointment only.However, if you're not able to come here in person in the next 2 to 3 days, the trailer will be delivered to your destination with a 10-day inspection period which will be given through Google Checkout Program. During this time the funds will be held in escrow by Google Checkout, in order to protect both parties in the case of future disputes. Typically, an inspection will give you a detailed report on the trailer's current condition. So, this is not a blind transaction, in the event of non-acceptance you are entitled to receive a full reimbursement.If this agreement is acceptable and you have sufficient funds to complete the transaction, please email me back with the following information:- Your Full Name and Shipping Address (Home Address, City, State, zip/Postal Code) - Info. required by Google Checkout, in order to begin the purchasing process- Your Phone Number: (Home, Mobile, Office) - Info. required for transportation purposes, our logistics coordinator will call you with delivery/pickup instructions 1-day ahead of arrival. In this way you can communicate what time-frame works for you to receive the unit.The information requested above will be furnished to the Google Checkout, they will contact you with simple, easy to follow step by step guidelines.I look forward to your response,Roger Gardner

I got the same story, yesterday, no phone calls only e-mail contact. I don't trust it. Avoiding my questions , no answer except to give my full name and address, car is in Portland Oregon, which i don't understand that, and  she or he lives in Chicago. I got the same story. I asked how would you feel about buying a car online and you cant have no contact info with the seller, still no answer just need your full name and address. So NO, I DON'T TRUST IT, Money is to hard to come by,  I need a car but, I don't plan on giving my money away for nothing.

Has anyone come across an ad for a 2000 3H featherlite LQ horse trailer for $3000?  I am skeptical about this ad and the google checkout.  Her name is Sophie Gagnon and her story is so similar to many displayed in these threads.  Wants to sell because husband died, trailer is with shipper ready to ship, yadayada.  Asked for shipper phone number and her reply is about how I can trust her, she is a good christian women, doesn't want to go to jail and she can't give me the shippers phone number because it's confidential.   Hmmm I smell "BS".

02/20/2012 07:17 pm

Here's another slime ball to be aware of. This was for a 2002 Ford F-150 for $3,000.00 and was supposedly being shipped from Auston Texas through Google Protection Plan. Hello, Thank you for your inquiry regarding my truck. It is in perfect condition, there's not even a scratch or any dents on it. Everything about it is in perfect condition. I have clear title for it, no liens or loans. The truck is priced to sell quickly and the final price that I'm asking for it is $3,000 including shipping and handling costs. My husband died in Iraq 3 months ago and me and my daughter decided to sell the house and move to my sister's. The truck reminds us very much of my husband but we finally understood that we have to move on with our lives. Although my husband will have his place in our hearts forever. 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 truck please reply to this email and i will provide further instructions regarding payment and delivery. Regards! Laura Parker

If you are really interested in purchasing, please email me with your details (name and address) for the shipping. Thanks  Amanda GrahamMessage 2Hey, I will make the deal only trough Google Checkout, because I am a member of the Google Checkout and using this service you will get a 7 days testing period after delivery.

If interested please include in your next email your contact info for shipping (name, address and #) so I can open a transaction with Google Checkout. Here are the pictures with my car: http://www.use.com/2006_NISSAN_ALTIMA_SE_34e5a7e15a3a2dd88587?p=1#photo=1 Thanks Message 3 Hey, The price is $ 2,350 with all the fees included.

02/23/2012 04:08 am

WOW>>>   its was a 2007 GMC YUKON, 69,000 miles, only $2,200...... this is his email to me after I asked about it... Please take a few moments and read my email truckefully, I know it is long, but I will explain all the details about the truck and the transaction.  At the moment I'm stationed at Madrid, Spain making final preparations before deploying to Afghanistan with the U.S. Convoy. The truck is already at our Military Logistic Department in Fort Lewis, U.S. Army Base, crated and ready to go. The Logistic Department will deliver the truck to your home. The shipping is free for you. Since the truck  is in a military base, with no  access you can not go there and take it, only the Logistic Department can deliver it, because the truck is in their custody. Shipping may take anywhere between 2 to 4 business days depending on the destination. All documents you need for ownership, manuals and bill of sale will be provided along with the truck. For the payment I would like to use Google Checkout as a third party. They will keep your money into a protection account until you get the truck  and will release it to me after inspection period is over and you agree to keep the truck. So, this is not a blind transaction, you can see the truck before committing to buy and to eliminate any concerns you will have 10 days to inspect the truck . If you decide not to keep it Google Checkout will refund you the money, no questions asked, and shipping back will be my concern. I think this is more than fair for both of us.    I'll start the official procedure, and Google Checkout will contact you about this. If you are interested in buying it just mail me back with: - Your Full Name - Required by Google Checkout (You'll receive important guidelines + instructions from them.) - Your Shipping Address and Phone Number - Required by the Logistic Department (They will call you with delivery/pickup instructions 1 day ahead so you can communicate what time schedule work best for your to receive the truck)   Again I want to point out that because I am going to Afghanistan this sale is my top priority and I am looking after a fast transaction, with no delays. That is why I decided to lower the price, to avoid wasting time with negotiations and find a buyer as soon as possible.   Thanks, hope to do business with you soon! Sgt. John Wofford

I as well have had it serviced and checked out every 3000 miles. It has vent visors bed liner and bed cover on it. The brakes have 75% life left in them and work well with no pulsing or pulling. This truck still drives like new with everything in working order and will make the buyer a very good truck for many years to come! It does have premium sound and a CD player.

Hello,    Thank you for contacting me about my 1998 Toyota Land Cruiser AWD. It has 59,049 miles.The car has no scratches or any kind of damage. I am located in Honolulu, HI. The car is located in Madrid, Spain. 2 months ago I sent the car to my brother in, Spain. He was sent there to improve the military relationships between our country and Spain. With regret one week ago my brother was deployed in Afghanistan and we are forced to sell the car back in the U.S.      The price that I hope to obtain is $2,200. I am selling the car because my squadron U.S. Army will be sent back to Afghanistan and I have no use for it anymore. The price is low because I need to sell it before February 25.      As I know that my current situation is pretty special I want the deal closed only through eBay in order for you to be 100% protected. You will have the chance to inspect the car before I will be paid! Which means that you will have a 10 days inspection period before buying the vehicle. This price includes all the shipping taxes and fees.  If you will take it for this price, I am willing to handle the shipping. It will be shipped from here by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me anything. You will get it to the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked forward to your place. You will receive the car in about 3 days.   If you want to complete the purchase please send me your: Full Name and Shipping Address and I will notify eBay that you are selected as my buyer and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure.  Please email me ASAP if you want to move forward and let me know if you need anything else. I will send all photo in the  next mail. Thank you and have a nice day, Sgt. Richard Bayless U.S. Army Garrison

I'm SO GLAD I looked this up because I almost got scammed, which sucks because it was my dream truck!!!! I knew it was too good to be true! service I have arranged will deliver it to your place. The delivery will be door-to-door, at your exact location, so you will not have to pick it up from somewhere else. Mileage: 39,150 milesBody type: Pickup truckEngine: 8 CylinderExterior color: BlackTransmission: AutomaticFuel type: GasolineInterior color: Black So we will be using Google Checkout as a supervisor for the transaction. Basically they will monitor the entire process. They will secure the payment and they will also supervise the shipping process and the paper exchange. The Ford will come with all the papers including the title, service history and a bill of sale signed by me. Once you get the vehicle and finish with the inspection if you want to keep it you can contact Google Checkout and authorize the payment so that they can release it to me. . . If the vehicle is not suitable for you for any reason, your funds will be fully refundable and I will take the vehicle back on my cost. But I'm sure it won't be the case because as I said it's a state of art looking and working machine. Anyway, you will have 5 days from the time you receive the car to arrange an independent inspection and decide if you want to keep it or not. So If you wish to proceed just shoot me and email with your name and address, a phone # where you can be reached and I will initiate the deal through Google Checkout. Also, I will give you a call before we start the transaction, just to make sure we are both on the same page. Kind regards, Staff Sgt. Eddie Ramirez, 13th Air Support Operations Squadron Peterson AFB, Fort Carson, Co

if it wasn't for this site I probably would have fallen also because my 2 e-mails of 2 different vehicles 2 good 2 be true is exactlly the same as everyone on here. Hello, This 2007 Nissan Pathfinder, runs and drives excellent. It has been extremely well maintained with a full service history, Only 47,520 miles! Transmission is Automatic shifts smoothly and the 4x4 operates perfectly. The interior is all original. The truck has all of its original floor mats, 3rd Row seat, all books, complete set of tools and keys. Everything works in the truck lights, gauges, radio, seats, windows, locks, a/c blows ice cold, etc... It has no leaks or drips and does not smoke at all, slightly used in 100% working and looking conditions with a clear title free of liens. I bought it when i was serving in Fort Lewis, U.S. Army base in Washington and now I am deployed in Madrid, Spain. The truck will be delivered from WA, US. I have dropped my price to $2,200 (purchase price) since this is an Urgent Sale! and I need to sell it before March 6th, when I will be deployed in Afghanistan with my platoon replacing the troops scheduled to come home.If you're interested to conclude this purchase in a timely manner email me your: Full Name and Shipping address, to open a case with Google Checkout. They will contact you to explain the entire procedure. The financial part will be managed by them, which means that you will have a 10 days inspection period before committing to buy the truck. In this way both, buyer and seller are 100% covered during the steps of this transaction. Plus a 3,000 mile warranty included to give a safe clear mind on the sale. Hope to hear from you soon!Sgt. John Blevins PS: I have made a photobucket album for the truck: http://s1244.photobucket.com/albums/gg563/topsuv/?start=all

3rd e-mail Show ImagesOptions Tj,The vehicle is still available for sale and the asking price is $1,800.The transaction will be managed by eBay Motors; I'm affiliated to their program and since they offer the highest rate of safety and reliability during online transactions I'm going to sell the vehicle only by their service. They will act as a neutral third party.Giving the nature of this transaction please note that my sale terms are final and non-negotiable.  Here are the details on how the deal will work:1. First of all I need the following information from you: your full name, full shipping address.2. After I receive your information I'll forward it to eBay Motors. They will process our transaction and provide us further details (invoice, buyer and seller's protection policy, payment instructions and more).3. If you agree with the eBay Motor's terms and decide to complete the transfer, they will validate it and will authorize me to start the shipping process. Shipping costs are included in the vehicle's price because I've won a free shipping some time ago so you don't have to worry about paying any other additional costs.4. After you receive the vehicle you'll have a 5 days inspection period, while you can test drive and inspect the vehicle, you can even take it to an independent mechanic for inspection. So this won't be a sight unseen deal for you.5. If you like the vehicle and decide to keep it, the vehicle can be registered on your name without any problems and you'll have to let eBay Motors pay me. eBay Motors will transfer the funds to me only once you have approved them to do so!6. If you decide not to buy the vehicle, which I really doubt, eBay Motors will completely refund you and I'll have to return the vehicle on my costs.Sorry for such an ample email but I wanted to clarify everything before proceeding further.So, if you want to own this beautiful vehicle please reply with the requested info so I can initiate the deal through eBay Motors. Looking forward to doing business!Regards,              KylieP.S.

I found two cars just like this story with the same exact e-mails...army, free shipping, Google checkout, and the 2nd was with Ebay...I also was hesitant after I got the second e-mail about a different car which I used a different e-mail address for contact and it had the same story in it. That is way too bogus. I looked it up & found this to confirm my concerns.

I almost got scammed by a guy name Steven, saying he needed to sell his Toyota corolla before March 10 because hr was going to Afghanistan. The price was very cheap and it sounded like a really good deal. That's why whenever my dad and I check for car deals, we are sure to ask to are the car in person. Don't fall for it people, always check out the car in person!

Recently I found two motorcycles for sale online, very cheap for what they were.  When I e-mailed for information, they were way helpful in providing me the size of bike, pictures and a story that didn't match.  The bike was listed for sale in Little Rock, Arkansas the other in Branson, MO (which is a 1 1/2 hour drive, so I mentioned that I would just drive to the bike and pick it up)  Turns out the bikes were in a crate in MS and MT, all I had to do was sent the money to Google Checkout, they would send me the bike.  Being kind of smart (don't tell anyone) I used the name they provided in the e-mail and looked them up on Facebook.  Turns out, the Facebook accounts had just been made, along with a picture that fit their story, no friends listed.  PLEASE DO RESEARCH, chances are if the deal is to good to be true, it is.

OMG! I just emailed a lady back tonight named Patricia Albert who wants to use Google Checkout for me to buy her 2007 Honda CRV with 24,000 miles for $2850. Said she works on an oil platform, and wanted to get rid of the car for personal reasons and not to ask. Definitely sounded too good to be true. I'm a single mom too and really had my hopes up fro finding a great deal, but after investigating this....her verbage in the email is identicle and UNCANNY to what has been written here. Im so glad I didn't fall for this! Thank you so much for sharing your stories! Hopefully I can help someone too! No one should lose their livlihood for such a con, and reading the previous stories, HOW DARE these people pose as our military soldiers to coerse innocent and trusting people for their fraudulent behaviors!! For Shame! Thank God for the good people still left in this world! My 2 year old son thanks you too! Her ad is on cars.com and is still up as we speak!!! Please reference it to consider if what you're looking at is a similar con or not! I hope the FBI is TRULY looking at this and holding GOOGLE responsible! Some needs too! This has been unexceptable for way too long!

YES YES......BUYERS PLEASE BEWARE!!!!!!!!!! Here is the first response I received today from my inquiry. Please Read: Hi there, I'm writing you regarding my 2003 Nissan Murano SL(3.5L V6 with automatic transmission). The car is still for sale and is in excellent condition as you can see from the pictures,no accidents, no major scratches or any kind of damage,never abused and it has a clear title. The car has 78,000 miles on it. If you are interested in buying it, the price is $3,000 and this is with shipping costs to your location included. I sell the car at this price because I cannot enjoy it due to my job(I am Lt.Colonel in US Army, Marine Corps) It was my dream car but most of the time I'm at work so I want another person to really enjoy it!I'm very well paid in US army so the money will be donated to UNICEF Association to help children with disabilities! The money will be redirected from Google Checkout accounts directly to UNICEF accounts!All documents, including owner's manual, clear title and a bill of sale on your name will be provided along with the car.Also about payment and shipping I will use only Google Checkout so we can both be protected. I am looking forward to hear from you.Thank you, Lt.Col Patricia Harrison

People dont be fooled. If a really nice car is being sold for way too cheap in perfect condition you are being SCAMMED.

If they don't have the property with them, at THE moment you are talking to them, chances are it's a scam. No one lives in Banson, MO and has their property in Alaska to ship to you. Sorry, I know I don't have my car in another state to sell to anyone. BE CAREFUL......Here is the e-mail, you can see for yourself, it pretty much matches all the other below. .....KCMUSICLIVE.COM Hello, Sorry for mailing you so late! I'm glad that you're interested in my Yamaha . The Yamaha is in good condition, has no technical damages at all, no scratches or dents,no hidden defects. The Yamaha is street legal and accurate. Never been dropped, laid down, raced or in an accident. It has been regularly maintained. It runs like brand new with no issues. The exterior is in excellent condition,tires are in good shape, brakes work well. It comes with all the documents needed for registration, it has a clear title and it can be registered into your name at any time... There are no known problems with the Yamaha as far as I know. The total price is $2800 including shipping and delivery taxes to your address. I AM SELLING UNDER THE MARKET'S VALUE BECAUSE I NEED LIQUIDITY IN ORDER TO FINISH THE HOUSE THAT I AM BUILDING. If you are decided we are going to have a safe deal. Please get back to me to explain you more. I`m waiting for your reply as soon as possible. Thank you! Robin Oldhamn robinoldhamn@aol.com

A Couple days ago i almost got scammed by an Amanda Graham. She said she was selling her 2006 Nissan Altima for $2350. Which i thought was an awesome deal! It only had about 53,000 miles on it and i was so excited, it was the kind of car i've always wanted. She claims that her husband died about 2 months ago and her and her daughter decided they wanted to sell their house and car because there were so many bad memories, and that she and her daughter had moved to Nebraska with her sister . I felt extremely bad for her. Thank God my father checked it out then told me it was a scam!

Sorry for the long emails I have tried to explain the entire process. Regards, God bless you! Kelly

Wow, blum33@cox.net is "selling a nissan altima 2007 for $1,900!" in craigslist. i was super excited because the car looks beautiful. When i got her response email and it was super long it gave me a little of suspicion, she said she wasnt in the US but in Portugal and all kInds of BS. Is there any way these people can get caught?

I found a listing on ksl.com for Jessica Clowery. Not flowery. But same story....funny thing, I emailed her saying nothing but asking for the vin number....and she said the same thing about moving to Nebraska, never tells people where she moved from, as she wants them to believe that it is wherever they are close to that she just moved from....the fact this is a scam breaks my heart but pisses me off even more...I just totaled my wife's car this week and had excitedly told her about this listing...like others have said, the shipping alone one way would cost her more than she is asking for the car

03/06/2012 09:46 pm

I saw the same thing, I posted it below..I think I might string them along a little , too.  This is the email she gave me...dev.alison1@gmail.com If you think your son can get her (or him for all we know..most likely a group of people) I would love it.Hi again, The car is located in Madison, WI(i just moved here with my new job)already crated at the shipping company ready to be sent to any location anywhere in the US,like i told you i'll like to use Google Checkout purchase protection because is safe for both,let me tell you how it work:1. Buyer, seller reach an agreement (price and delivery conditions)2. Buyer sends money to Google Checkout.3. Google Checkout confirms to seller that the amount has been received.4. Seller performs the required services (shipping, insurance). 5. Buyer accepts delivery and informs Google Checkout about the acceptance.6. Google Checkout releases the money to seller.As you can see, you will receive the car BEFORE any money is released to me. You will get the chance to inspect it, test drive it and everything you like while your money is still safely held in Google Checkout's account. ONLY after you confirm to Google Checkout that you agree with the vehicle, they will release the money to me.If, for some reason, you disagree with the car (I assure you that is NOT going to happen since my car is in IMMACULATE condition inside and out) it will be shipped back to me on MY EXPENSE and Google Checkout will send you your money back.I need your full name and full shipping address so i can open this deal with Google Checkout.See more pictures at: http://s1152.photobucket.com/albums/p482/specialedition02/

There is currently a 2010 Range Rover on Auto Trader that is listed for $37k ($20k below retail). the seller emailed me the following: The car is located in Kissimmee, FL and I'm in Kent, WA right now so I can't arrange a viewing. I'm currently signed up for Google Checkout services and I would like to close the deal through them. If you are not aware of this program, you should know that it will allow you to test drive and inspect the car before paying me.You will have a 7-day inspection period to decide whether you want to keep the car or not before they release the funds to me. If you are still interested and have cash just send me your Google Checkout email (www.GoogleCheckout.com) and I'll ask them to fill you in with the transaction details.After Google Checkout confirms the transaction I will personally come and hand you the keys(this way I will not make the trip just to see that you don't have the money or any other reason...)If you agree with my terms please reply with your phone number and we'll discuss more about this deal.Best Regards!Johan His email address is Johan Hoff [johan.hoff@live.com]. based on all of these comments, i guess this is just another scam.

I got suckered by the same woman. The OCeanographer from Spain!!!   She goes by the name of Jessica Cusack and when I wired the money via Western Union it was to a Tomas Martinez in Spain.   I was foolish to send them money (thinking I'm sending it to GOOGLE who I can trust). Its not Google, its a copy cat using their logo and their name.  The car she is advertising is a Black 2002 Nissan Altima. She even has the VIN#.  They really did their homework to conspire to do this fraud.

Hi David, I tried to call but I was not able to get through. I wanted to let you know that my 2010 Mercedes-Benz GL550 is still available. I recently divorced and moved back to my home country, Canada. The car is here, too. Sorry for the confusion with the location, I advertised my vehicle nation-wide. Please note it is still registered in the United States so there will be no import taxes or additional fees to pay. The car is registered on my name and the title is clear (no lien). It is in great condition, no dents or scratches. It wasn't involved in any accident and it is a non-smoker car. The asking price is $43,000. I had a buyer offering $44,000 and I've lost about 10 days waiting for him to pay just to find out in the end that his loan wasn't approved. I don't want to offend you, but the car is priced for a fast sale so please if you intend to apply for a loan or financing do not reply to my email! Because of the amount involved and the distance, I want to use Google Wallet for closing this deal. If you are not aware of how they work you should know that they will allow you to test drive and inspect the car before I get the money. You will have 3 to 5 days allowed for inspection, to decide whether you want to keep it or not before they release the funds to me.

2006 Triumph Daytona 675 for £2,000.00 The guy's brother died and the bike was left it him. His son is in hospital so he just wanted to sell the bike as he did not ride etc. All along in the back of my mind I knew it was bollocks but I sent the money through a bank transfer thinking it was secure. He had "eBay" invoice me and everything. You can only tell slight differences when you look back on it. So very well done. My bank won't even try and help. Their fraud  team say that is none of their concern as I voluntarily sent the money. It's the 21st century damn it! The banks all work wirelessly and instantly. They can see and track anything and everything. Why won't they help a valued customer get back his money?! It's not a transaction if the money sent was for a product and the product was not received! The guy basically stole from me. It IS a fraudulent claim. I'm a uni student now out of £2,000.00 after trying to get a deal on a bike to use for getting into uni. Now I'm stuck. DO NOT DEAL WITH padakis7@gmail:disqus  .com who goes by the name Nikolaos and the eBay assistant Anadelle K.

I was mislead into a none existent purchase. The guy even sent photos of the bike, plate & documents. I HPI checked the bike and it checked out good. He even replied after the purchase for some time and confirmed that address by asking that it was near another town [that was correct]. He even claimed to cancel the transaction and told eBay to send the money back. The eBay lady [Anadelle K] confirmed this and stated that it would be returned to my account within in 48hrs. He had a legit phone number for the area of Aberdeen he said he was from but is never answered.

I got taken by the same Oceanographer in Spain and is going through a divorce.    Goes by the name of Jessica Cusack.  She is supposedly selling a 2002 Black Nissan Altima. SHe has the VIN# and carfax of this car.  I reported this to the FBI and FTC via a form. So far nothing has been done. I reported it to Google that someone is copy cating their name and their logo. But its like talking to a wall. They have automated robots responding to my emails.

I even went to the western union but had a bad feeling and went home thank god I did because I went home and reserched this and found a page telling me about the scam. I was 2 seconds from being robbed!!!

My husband and I almost bought a 1971 Yellow/Black Roadrunner which my husband was wanting dearly for $10,000.  We talked via email with this lady who was stating that she was deaf and was trying to sell the car to get the operation to get her hearing back.  Well we didn't send her the money so we are safe there.  But my husband even offered to drive to where she lived at which was only 500 miles away and pay her with cash and would pick it up from her there.  She now has all these excuses how her job keeps her away all the time and would rather go through google motors to seal the deal.  Now who in their right mind, if they were actually legit, would pass up $10,000 cash in hand instead of going through a so called 3rd party.  Also she was going to pay for the shipping and let us inspect it for 5 days and if we didn't like it would pay for the shipping back.  It has broken my husbands heart but thank goodness we didn't fall for it.  Thanks to others who have had this happen cause we would have never found out about this if it wasnt for looking it up on the computer. Her name is CatherinSanforrd.  Also the phone number that was provided was not to her as well so that was one clue.  She might be legit and if so then I will be woman enough to apologize but dont think so.

Is there something as www.libertyreserve.com  and  use Western Union or  Wire Transer money

Terry

03/13/2012 10:17 am

I was minutes from losing $2800 today at my bank. Thru Oodle marketplace, I saw a motorcycle I liked. Price was way too low which made me suspicious, but after emails with the seller, I received what looked like a legitimate invoice from Google Checkout with instructions to wire transfer the money. Google Checkout was to be the 3rd party responsible for holding my money until the bike was shipped to me at the seller's expense for a 10 day inspection and would be released only after I agreed to complete the purchase. Fortunately, my bank noticed they left off the country the bank was in, necessary for a wire transfer. This was my red flag. Surely, any legit company who does this regularly would know what instructions to send me. I left my bank, came straight home, and replied to the Google Invoice asking for the information my bank needed. They sent it very soon after. BUT by then I had looked up Google's policies. Guess what? Google states that it NEVER uses wire transfers. Whew!!! I barely escaped this scam. The Google invoice looked very real. BEWARE everyone ... Do NOT wire money to any 3rd party for online purchases. First sign that it's a scam.

If she is asking you to wire money to Google Checkout to protect you and her, it's a scam. I just avoided that one.

03/13/2012 10:23 am

IF the Google Checkout asks you to wire transfer any money, IT IS A SCAM. Google NEVER uses wire transfers. I learned this JUST BEFORE I almost wired the money.

Hi Kyle , Thank you for your interest in my 2004 Cadillac SRX. From the start I have to tell you that the price has nothing to do with it's condition. I am only selling it at this price due to my financial problems and my job that keeps me busy all the time. The car is in a perfect condition inside-out, never had any kind of damages or accidents, runs great, looks great and smells like new. There are no liens or loans on the vehicle and it has a clean title, so registering it under your name won't be an issue.  I serve the USAF and for the next 2 months I'll be stationed at Little Rock Air Force Base in Arkansas, than I'll be back home. Of course I am not asking you to buy a cat in the bag so we can arrange for an inspection and I can have the vehicle delivered to you. However I am not very familiar with online sales so I will have to use a service from a business-specialized company. I'm asking $5,500 on it, so if you are interested in purchasing it, and if you have the funds available, please contact me asap.   Feel free to ask me for more details...I also downloaded some pics from my camera and attached them. Best regards, Staff Sgt. Kevin Reilly, 53rd Airlift Squadron Little Rock AFB, Arkansas

mariadupont79@gmail.com is a SCAM!  BEWARE!  This is her e-mail.  I told her I would fly there and pay cash for the vehicle....no go.  BE CAREFUL!  Hi Victor, it's Maria.  I just called and left a voice mail.  I live in Sherwood Park, AB.  Using google wallet services you will have to secure the funds in a verified non interest account, managed by google wallet, until the inspection period ends.  After I have the confirmation of payment from google checkout I will ship the vehicle to you.  I will send all the docs with it.   The inspection period will start on the arrival date, you will have 3 -5 days to take the vehicle to a farage, test drive, it, but don't put more than 200 miles on it.  You will get with the car an used vehicle affidavit, a paper you will need to fill in with yur decision when the inspection period ends and fax it over to google checkout.  Based on the affidavit they will pay me, or refund you.  If you find hidden defects, a salvage title, etc., anything else different from what I said you just need to fill inthe affidavit and fax it over to then.  If you reject the vehicle, google wallet will refund you and the car will be sent out to me, on my cost.  Maria 206-445-0554

I was wanting to purchase a car off Craigslist. It was  practically a new car. 2008 Nssan Altima with only 73,000 miles. they had pics of the car on line. The asking price was $2,100. The person was  lying like he or she was just getting a divorce and wanted to get rid of it. I asked for a phone number and they was suppose to be over sea's in Spain and couldn't talk. He or she  said we would deal through Google Checkout. When I asked for there number they couldnt give it to me. Then when this fake Google checkout emailed me they couldnt give me a number either. They say they deal though email, I knew then it was a scam. I email them and told them I dont send money to people I can't talk to. Fucking scammmers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But I didnt know there was a fake one to. This fake site contacted me saying the funds where already in my account but I needed to send $300. for shipping and the $300 plus the cost of the furniture would post to my account immediately. It was a scam now I'm out $300 and wish I would find this Suzanne Mark I would beat my $300 out of his or her azzz

So anyone out who runs across this BE AWARE SCAM: AD 133371  2000 Feather lite 3 horse slant W/living quarters. The person selling is Sophie Gagnon who says she works as a dealer on a cruise ship. The trailer is at a ship yard in Cal. which sounds fishy. She also states to not use horseclicks but her own email.  Again doesn't sound right, which is right below the ad. sophie.gagnon@man.com..

even the google checkout itself is a big scam, they will lock your google wallet out, and wont do a refund. there is no such thing as "non-scam google checkout"

I saw a similar ad for a Toyota Camry Hybrid 2007 with only 41,000 miles. It was in perfect condition inside and out.  The lady's name was Nicole S. and she was leaving for Afganistan in 2 weeks. She said she would ship it to me for test try of 3 days via google checkout. All she wanted was my name and address to complete the transaction.  My son Kevin warned me about the scams of folks shipping  car via mail and that lead me to this site. Thank you Thank you.

I saw an ad on Craigs List for a 2006 Altima for $2630. When I emailed janice12johnson@gmail.com she said her husband had just died and she moved from the area to Nebraska with her daughter and so would work out the details through google checkout. I haven't replied to her recent email yet but wanted to do some checking around beforehand. Did I almost get scammed here???

omg!!!!!!!!!!!!, was this the email??? I have a low price for my 2006 Honda Accord ($ 2,450 including delivery to your home address ), because I want to sell the car very  quickly. My husband died 2 months ago (he had a heart attack) and this vehicle brings me bad memories and that's the reason that I want to sell it. I along with my daughter decided to sell the house and we moved to my sister in Nebraska. Unfortunately I can't conclude this transaction personally because my work involves a lot of travelling but I left everything prepared for the sale. If you are really interested in purchasing, please email me with your details (name and address) for the shipping. is this a cruel joke??

As I already said in my first email the vehicle is currently located in New York at the shipping company, ready to go anywhere in the United States. The transaction will be managed by Google Checkout; I'm affiliated to their program and since they offer the highest rate of safety and reliability during online transactions I'm going to sell the vehicle using their service. They will act as a neutral party in this transaction. You will send the money to Google Checkout and as soon as the payment is confirmed they will notify me to proceed with the shipping. I will ship the vehicle, you will receive it and will have 5 days for inspection. Shipping costs are included in the vehicle's price. During all this time Google Checkout will hold the money. If you are satisfied with the vehicle and decide to keep it you inform Google Checkout about this and they will transfer the money to me. If the vehicle is not as advertised and decide not to keep it Google Checkout will refund you the money, no questions asked, and shipping back the vehicle will be my concern. If you agree with these terms and you have the money ready, send me your full name and the address where you want the vehicle to be delivered and I will initiate the transaction through Google Checkout. Then 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. Thank you, Esther

Why are you so suspicious about me?I'm a serious seller and I never fooled someone in any way. I won't risk my career, my freedom and my future for anything in the world!!! I would rather close this deal with other person than to know that you'll be very stressed hoping that I am a honest person, until you receive your vehicle.Your peace of mind is more important than this deal!!! If you decide not to go through with it there is no problem.I got quite a few offers left. Get back to me and let me know what you decide. Thank you for your time and interest.Whatever you decide I wish you good luck. Sincerely, Esther

There is a Volkswagen camper for sale on Autotrader £3200, by someone called Joanne Hughes who claims to be in army barracks in Dundee, Scotland. She is just about to leave for a 6 month tour of Afganistan. The same camper van is for sale on E-bay by bigfeetcharles, currently at £6600. Joanne Hughes is also asking for payment using Google checkout. Probably best to stay away

Looks like they're getting into the gardening business too. Thanks for the heads up. Hello ,    Thank you for showing interest in my 2004 Kubota BX23 22hp 4WD Tractor with 293 hours on it . The general condition of the tractor is excellent, very well maintained, no damages, no mechanical problems and no electrical issues. I am the original owner and it has been an amazing tractor since day one. I have always babied this tractor. The tractor with all attachments. I am selling it at this final price ($3,600) because my husband died 2 months ago (he had a heart attack) and brings me bad memories and that's the reason I want to sell it asap . I along with my daughter decided to sell the house and we moved to my brother in Churchill MB . The transaction will be made through Google Checkout buyer protection program. I believe this protects both buyer and seller and it's the right way to do this. If you're interested to purchase just email me with your full name and shipping address, so I can notify Google Checkout that you are selected as my buyer and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure.   Thank you Cynthia Sidara

I HAVE RECENTLY BEEN SEARCHING CRAIGSLIST IN CLEVELAND FOR A RELIABLE AND AFFORDABLE CAR.  I CAME ACROSS AN ADD FOR A 2003 FORD EXPLORER XLT TRAK AND THE SELLER WAS ASKING $24OO FOR IT.  WAY UNDER KELLY BLUE BOOK.  I REPLIED TO THE AD.  I ALSO NOTICED THAT OVER A 24 HOUR PERIOD THE CRAIGSLIST EMAIL ADDRESS CHANGED AT LEAST 2 TIMES AND THE LOCATION WENT FROM CLEVELAND TO AKRON-CANTON.  SELLER REPLIED AND I CANNOT BELIEVE THE SIMILARITIES OF HER REASONING FOR SELLING THE TRUCK SO LOW, THAT THE TRUCK WAS LOCATED IN ILLINOIS AND THAT IT COULD BE SHIPPED TO ME FREE OF CHARGE.  I REQUESTED A CARFAX REPORT OR A VIN # FROM THE SELLER AFTER HER EMAIL TO ME.  HER RESPONSE WAS THAT IF I WAS INTERESTED IN THE CAR THAT  I SHOULD CHECKOUT WITH GOOGLE CHECKOUT AND ASSURED ME EVERYTHING WAS LEGIT AND SAFE.  ALSO I COULD HAVE THE TRUCK AT MY DOORSTEP WITHIN 2 DAYS AFTER GOOGLE RECEIVED MY MONEY AND I HAD 5 DAYS TO DECIDE IF I WANTED THE CAR OR NOT.  I COULD RETURN IT NO QUESTIONS ASKED TO GOOGLE CHECKOUT AND THEY WOULD REFUND MY MONEY.  THIS JUST DIDN'T SOUND RIGHT AND AFTER LOOKING FURTHER I FOUND THIS WEBSITE AND JUST CANNOT BELIEVE THAT HER STORY SOUNDS ALMOST IDENTICLE TO MANY OTHERS I HAVE READ.  THIS WEBSITE REALLY OPENED MY EYES!!!

I searched for an infinit g37 on cars.com and sent an email to the seller. She sent me an email saying she just got divorced and moved to Canada and the car is there too. She was selling the 2009 infiniti g37 sport convertible for 18000 and said it was priced to sell quckly. She said we could do the transaction through google wallets and provided a phone number but after reading this posts, I see that this has to be a scam. Her name is Maria and provided this number (206)-445-0554. Beware of this scammer. Thank goodness for this article.

03/29/2012 05:11 pm

I just today answered a car ad for a really nice Nissan Maxima 2006 which wasnt listed in the auto section...but in the furniture section. I just thought it was a mistake of a click. Anyway I contacted the owner Danielkaaron@gmail.net  who told me the car is in storage in Florida and that he needed my info to start the transaction process through Google and  I should pay 1/2 of the amount through Google checkout  and we would transfer the paperwork etc.and that then he would be notified and he would ship the car to me in PA in 3 to 4 days. then the paperwork would get tranferred and I needed to pay the final balance because he was being deployed to Afghanistan for 14 months and leaving April 9th so this had to be done immediently. I looked his name up and did a bit of investigating on the net and found others who have been told this lie about being deployed in exactly the same wording from this person. I flagged his Craigslist ad and reported it to Google  so letting the community know is my final hopefully help in saving someone else not to believe this scam.

03/29/2012 06:24 pm

My Father is working on a similar deal with a 56 F-100.. It is in storage and in Canton. Same deal verification of funds through Google Wallet and he has five days once at his door step to decline and get a 100% refund. I have told him if it looks to good to be true. Vehicle looks great and as stated 100K invested in 98 and only wants 15,600 to sell. This sounds so similar to the others listed below.

03/29/2012 11:18 pm

Don't do it. I have just been scammed out of £5400 by this person for exactly the same vehicle. So many warning signs but I just didn't see them. Stay away from this seller. I am now trying to get in touch with autotrader and will drop Ebay a line as well to say it is a scam. I've even had an e.mail today from "google checkout" saying they will put the money back into my account on monday, when I said I had not received the vehicle. Somehow I doubt it. I am sad, this is money I worked hard for and they're just scamming people out their hard earnt momey.

THis is what I dealt with after replying to an ad on craigslist: Hello, Thank you for your inquiry regarding my jet skis with trailer. They are in perfect condition, there's not even a scratch or any dents on them. Everything about them is in perfect condition. I have clear titles for them, no liens or loans.  The 2 jet skis are priced to sell quickly and the final price that I'm asking for them is $3,000 including shipping and handling costs. My husband died in Iraq 5 months ago and me and my daughter decided to sell the house and move to my sister's. The 2 jet skis with trailer reminds us very much of my husband but we finally understood that we have to move on with our lives. Although my husband will have his place in our hearts forever. I can't afford to take days off my work for this sale so i'm trying to sell them online. If you are really interested in purchasing the jet skis with trailer please reply to this email and i will provide further instructions regarding payment and delivery.   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 2 jet skis&trailer are at Google's shipping center in Memphis, TN and from there it will be shipped to my buyer's address. I have registered the 2 jet skis with Google Checkout Protection Program so a local pick-up is not an option.This transaction is covered by Google Checkout'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 2 jet skis will be my concern. I strongly assure you it will not be the case for a refund. I have used the Google Checkout in the past and all my transaction ended successfully. You pay to Google Checkout and they will transfer the funds to me only after you get the 2 jet skis. The financial part of our transaction is going through Google Checkout and here are the steps:- I need your full name, shipping address and phone#;- I will forward this information to Google Checkout purchase protection department and they will start our transaction;- Google Checkout 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 2 jet skis & trailer you will have another 5 days to inspect them.- when the inspection period ends, Google Checkout contacts you and if there are any issues with the waverunner, they will fully refund you within 3 business days and the waverunner will be shipped back at my expense. If all is good with the jet skis & trailer, 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 number, in order to start the transaction!

 These are the two emails i got when i responded to a 03 nissan altima for $2350 with 51,000 miles complete scam Hello there, This 2003 Nissan Altima SL with only 51,000 miles,it is automatic transmission with a 2.5L 4 cyl. engine, has no leaks or drips and it has never been smoked in. This car has been extremely well maintained with a full service history. The title is clean with no lien against it. I stand behind my word, the car looks exactly as presented in the presale sheet you've already received and I assume full responsibility if otherwise, Carfax report is also available by request. My car needs nothing to run, it's in excellent condition and has been extremely well maintained with a full service history. Bought it when i was serving in U.S. AFB near Ogden, Utah. I have dropped my price to $2,350 (purchase price) since this is an Urgent Sale! and I need to sell it before April 8th when I will be deployed in Afghanistan with my platoon replacing the troops scheduled to come home. If you're interested to conclude this purchase in a timely manner email me your COMPLETE NAME, FULL SHIPPING ADDRESS AND YOUR PHONE#. I'll send it to Google Checkout to start the process and they will explain the entire procedure. The financial part will be managed by Google Checkout, which means that you will have a 7 days inspection period before committing to buy the car and the title is transferred. That way we're both covered throughout this process. Hope to hear from you soon, Sgt Glenda Hartman  Hello again,    Let me explain you something please. The reason I chose to sell my car through a 3rd party like Google Checkout in this situation, is because I just can't meet any potential buyer as I am in a military base doing my final stage of trainings before getting deployed. On the other hand, as I work in the military I can deliver it for free. The Logistic Department will deliver it for me.    That is why I decided to offer you 7 days time inspect period.    If something won’t be like you expected to be you can return it without any expense. It will come with all the paper work. The payment will be released after you get to test and inspect the car for 7 days.    So If you decide to buy the car, please include the following information in your next email.    1. Ship to name and address ( the complete name and address of the person receiving the car ).    2. Motor vehicle registration name and address needed for title transfer, this would be your complete name and physical address (or if the car is to be registered on someone else’s name the name and address of the registrant is needed).    I'll send it to Google Checkout to initiate a Case ID and they will explain the entire procedure.    Please get back to me at your earliest convenience.Sgt. Glenda Hartman

AutoBuyer

03/31/2012 05:47 pm

Here is the one I just received from responding to an autotrader.com ad:  The Vin# is JN8AZ18W59W112896. Right now I'm in the military base getting ready for Qatar. I'm afraid I can't provide you a phone number right now but I will try. The vehicle is now in Iowa but as I said in my first email will take care of shipping charges. I think the vehicle will be in 5-6 days to your address. I will send all necessary paperwork (clear title, bill of sale, user’s manual, insurance etc) and all you will have to do is sing them and the vehicle is yours. Regarding the payment I want to use Google Checkout protection program. You will have to make a deposit of about 3K through Google Checkout so I can be sure that you are serious and that you are my buyer. You'll get 3 days to inspect and test drive after delivery and if by any reason you will not be satisfied, you will get a 100% total refund of your money and if you use the same shipping company (TNT is the shipping company that I will use) it will be free of charge. Once you have inspected and decided to keep the vehicle, you will confirm your decision to Google Checkout and only then they will re-route me the money and you will pay me the remaining amount via bank wire transfer or by check. In this way we are both protected. If you have the money available and if you are ready to buy it, include in your next email your full name and your shipping address for delivery. As soon as I have them I will start the official procedure and Google Checkout will notify you about this.

Hello, Sorry for the delayed response, but I'm  presently located in Cameroon right now and I have been very busy..Anyway,thank you for your interest in buying the car. The car is located in US right now and has US papers.Why is the price so low? The reason why i want to sell my car at this price is because my husband was transferred to Cameroon due to his job and he took me along with him and that is where we are presently located,that is why i want to sell the car at this price because i want to sell it fast. since i could not take the car along with me and cannot register the car here, as it is made for USA, according to USA standards. So all that I want to do now is to sell the car at this price, So before i left USA,i had already made all the arrangement for the shipment and also the payment with the shipping company in the USA. So the car is presently in the USA at the shipping company.I have already made all arrangements with them so that they can help me to sell the car.because I need to sell it fast(I already made a deposit here to buy me another).The title is clean and you will have absolutely no problems to register the car in the States.I will tell you a few words about the car.. My 2002 Lexus ES300 with Automatic transmission it is in immaculate condition with 63,170 actual miles , rust free , no scratch and hasn't been involved in any accident. The motor runs very well.The interior looks great(NO SMOKING).This car needs nothing,the title is clear ,it is not a salvage one. I want this transaction to go smoothly enough as I am caught in the middle of some very important events and have little time at my disposal. I already have tons of emails so I hope you understand that I need to sort them out. The car is like new, in perfect conditions,accident free, no scratches, no special marks, no need for additional repairs what so ever. a genuine road runner ready to be yours, but only if you shall understand and you won't make me loose time as it has already happened to me. The price is $1,700USD THIS IS MY LAST PRICE.I will not negotiate the price.I will take in consideration only those buyers who are really interested in buying the car ,to be sure that I don't waste my time with endless discussions.This way,I shall be assured of the serious intentions . So if you are interested please email me back for next step...... Regards !!

Hi, The car (2010 Chevrolet Tahoe) is in perfect condition, no electric problems, no accidents/liens/loans. No scratches, never been repainted. I have all the car manuals, title,documents. I'm selling this car because my child of only 23 died 4 months ago in a car accident,a drunk driver hit him and his fiancee. He was with his fiance's car coming to our home at his little brother birthday of 15 years old. The car belonged to my son and it brings me bad memories and that's the reason I want to sell it. The last price is $8,000. Me and my husband travel a lot with our business and we want to make this deal through Google Checkout Program.I just need your full name,full shipping address, home/cell # so I can initiate the transaction.(with no further obligation or fees).Google Checkout will contact you with all the Transaction/shipping details you will need.We will take care of the shipping so don't worry.We hope to hear soon from you.P.S. Let me know if you want more pictures Thank you for your interest!

Nearly bought a Porsche 911 for £7900, saw it on autotrader.co.uk , emailed the car dealers and next day got a personal email back from a Luke Bart (lukebart46@hotmail:disqus .com) informing me that he has now moved to Spain but the car is still for sale, is in great condition etc etc. Now the car dealers were in West Yorkshire, England (Crowtrees Car Centre). when I checked auto trader again the Ad had expired and the car images and info on the dealer site had vanished. I asked luke some questions about inspection,payment ,and should I fly to spain, why was it for sale on a dealers website in England,and so cheap? his reply was again its in great condition ,he's the legal owner ,has all paper work etc. He will be using Google checkout, after I deposit the money, he will ship the car to my home address for a 7 day inspection period, if I don't want it he will have it sent back to him at his cost, and Google will refund me all my money. Now I don't know if the car dealers are in on it with him or they have just had their site hacked. SCAMMING SCUMBAGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is the reply I just got... Hi,   Thank you, the car is located in Miami,Florida at DAS ( Dependable Auto Shippers ) headquarters, in the container, sealed and ready for shipping. You will have 10 days so you can inspect the car. Once you have inspected the car and decided to keep it, you will confirm   your decision to Google Checkout and only then they will re-route the money in to my account, but if by any reason, you won't be satisfied with the car you can return it back for a full refund of your money. I will take care of the shipping, don't worry. You will receive the car with all the necessary papers (clear title, bill of sale, user’s manual, insurance etc). Just get back with your full name and full shipping address and I will get everything started as soon as possible, then Google Checkout will contact you with further instructions.   Hope to hear soon from you.    Thanks a lot!

Ill be posting all over craigslist about this type of scam and hopefully it woll save someome like this site saved me.

Hey just came across a phony just like it, almost the same story line. The question is, how do you bust them and give them a piece of their own medicine. This guy I encountered on cars.com posts as Mike wanting to sell me a 1983 380SL in pristine condition for less than 5k. This car should be going for about 10K or more. “He is on business in Canada” he says but wants to ship the car to me at no cost; yeah right. It is very sad that these scum’s of the earth still find a poor soul that will write them a check. In this case “Google Check-Out” is the bait that makes it all sound so legit. Well, there is just one thing to remember (our moms told us long time ago) “when it’s too good to be true…it probably is! Go eat dirt you scammers of the earth. I hope you get busted!

Glad to hear you were lucky enough or smart enough not to get fooled as I did for $17,740.00 I felt sick about this, she even had the driver contact me saying he was at the N. Dakota border and was a day or so late. These people are heartless assholes that need to be stopped. The Bank of America  they used for this deal was in New York and had it go to a Alan Walsh. How can this bank continue to allow this to keep happenning. I think Google is being totally at fault by not being able to contact them for some verification> The money was sent back to me saying Google made a mistake and gave an extra number on the account. I felt who would send it back if they were scamming me. These pricks got balls. I would like to compare notes with you. I will check back to see if you replied. Are you in Alberta or was the Maria Dupont crook. Be wary of a 68 GTO she even sent me title with her name on it. I think a class action suit against these banks or Google for not protecting their email account users might get their attention. That is my next step. The local police told me tough luck and caveat emptor or buyer beware. The RCMP have a fraud or scam info line that seem helpful for us dumb Canuckleheads. Me anyways, I see a lot of people got the right site and I didnt. This really sucks. Any lawyers out there willing to work for a percentage. I can imagine how many got burned but are to embarrassed to come forward. I see the signs now but should have not had any faith in Google. They must know this is happenning and how hard wiuld it be for them to put out warnings everytime we google something.

This is an email I got after I sent an email to the seller saying I was interested. This is a similar story to yours. Hello,   This 2007 Nissan Pathfinder, runs and drives excellent. It has been extremely well maintained with a full service history, Only 87,203 miles! Transmission is Automatic shifts smoothly and the 4x4 operates perfectly. The interior is all original. The truck has all of its original floor mats,all books, complete set of tools and keys. Everything works in the truck lights, gauges, radio, seats, windows, locks, a/c blows ice cold, etc... It has no leaks or drips and does not smoke at all, slightly used in 100% working and looking conditions with a clear title free of liens. I bought it when i was serving in Fort Lewis, U.S. Army base in Washington and now I am deployed in Madrid, Spain. The truck will be delivered from WA, US.I have dropped my price to $2,300 (purchase price) since this is an Urgent Sale! and I need to sell it before April 18th, when I will be deployed in Afghanistan with my platoon replacing the troops scheduled to come home. If you're interested to conclude this purchase in a timely manner email me your: Full Name and Shipping address, to open a case with Google Checkout. They will contact you to explain the entire procedure. The financial part will be managed by them, which means that you will have a 10 days inspection period before committing to buy the truck. In this way both, buyer and seller are 100% covered during the steps of this transaction.Hope to hear from you soon!Sgt. John Stanton PS: I have made a photobucket album for the truck:http://s1258.photobucket.com/albums/ii526/BestSUVle/?start=all

 Hi, I wanted to let you know that my 1957 Mercedes-Benz 300SL is still available. I recently divorced and moved back to my homecountry, Canada. The car is here, too. Sorry for the confusion with the location, I advertised my vehicle nation-wide. Please note it is still registered in the United States so there will be no import taxes or additional fees to pay. The car is registered on my name and the title is clear (no lien). It is in great condition, no dents or scratches. It wasn't involved in any accident and it is a non-smoker car with Manual transmission,numbers matching, only two owners since new, no issues The asking price is $21,000. I had a buyer offering $22,000 cash, but I've lost about 10 days waiting for him to pay just to find out in the end that his loan wasn't approved. I don't want to offend you, but the car is priced for a fast sale so please if you intend to apply for a loan or financing do not reply to my email! Because of the amount involved and the distance, I want to use Google Wallet for closing this deal. If you are not aware of how they work you should know that they will allow you to test drive and inspect the car before I get the money. You will have 3 to 5 days allowed for inspection, to decide whether you want to keep it or not before they release the funds to me. I look forward hearing from you.   Maria

The same thing is happening to me. I am trying to buy a 2002 audi and the seller wants to use Google checkout to eliminate "trust issues". It sounds too good to be true because he said he would ship the car from Montana to Texas with no cost from my part. Idk if I should proceed with the payment..

Guest2222

04/12/2012 07:05 pm

You guys are being scammed!!!! If you can't touch it, don't send any money. Think about it logically, the seller is selling an item way below what it's worth AND will pay the shipping (usually about $1,000)??? So you're getting an item worth $10,000 and the buyer is netting $1,000??? Do the math.

this almost sounds like the same thing I am going threw on a too good to be true boat, seller says he is in spain,and would cost to much to ship it there, boat is in yukon and will be shipped at no cost to me, but seller wants money before I can see the boat, says if I don't like the boat he will ship it back at his cost, and refund my money, so I backed out, well I got a new e-mail weeks later about the same boat, now the money is to be transfered threw a different payment plan, and the boat is now in NS. oh the boat right now should be listed for at least 65,000.00 and the seller wants 6,500.00 so I thought it was a typo when I first seen the add in a very well know auto,boat seller, but to many red flags,

04/14/2012 07:05 am

  HI Darryl ,The boat is in mint condition . Only been in fresh water , comes with a trailer . Let me explain how everything works as this will not be a sight unseen deal :You have to make the payment to eBay Motors through Bank Wire Transfer. They will hold the money until you receive and inspect the boat. Once your payment is confirmed, the shipping will be started in 24 hours, and will last 3-4 days until it gets to your address. You will have 14 days for inspection from the moment the boat arrives at your address. If it is not like I have described it eBay will refund your payment in maximum 3 working days and the boat will be returned at my expense.This way I know that you have the money and you have time to inspect it before committing to buy, knowing that I don't have access to the money. We are both covered.In order to initiate the transaction with eBay Motors, I need your full name, shipping address and phone number. They will contact you with further details....THIS WAS A REPLY THAT THE SAME SELLER FOR THE SAME BOAT SENT ME LAST WEEK. i saved my e-mails.

Tuxedeo

04/14/2012 07:09 am

Hello Darryl Yes it comes with the trailer. The boat is in perfect working condition, the interior and exterior look great, no mechanical problems. The title is clean and clear. The price includes delivery. I am letting it go because I've moved to Spain and importing it here would cost too much. The boat is currently in the Whitehorse YT in custody of a shipping company with all the papers necessary to sell, ready to be delivered to its new owner. I will only sell it through eBay Motors because they will handle the payment in a way in which both of us are secure. If you are interested contact me back and I will give you more photos and specs about it . Thank you ,,,THIS WAS THE FIRST REPLY I RECEIVED ON THAT TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, SO YOU SEE THE THREE DIFFERENT E-MAILS ARE ALL FOR THE SAME BOAT. RED FLAGS..

Hello, Sorry for the late reply. The 2003 Larson Cabrio 274 Cruiser is still for sale, in very good condition. No damages, scratches never involved in any accident, no liens on it.My final price is 6,700 CAD (shipping fees and title transfer fees included). I am forced to sell quickly because I need money to pay the mortgage on my house.The boat is already in the possession of the shipping company in Halifax, along with all the documents, sealed and ready to be shipped to your address.I am out of the country and there is no one else that can handle this deal for me so i had to leave it there. I'm sorry I can't meet you in person.The shipping company is part of Google Checkout affiliate program, so i have asked Google Checkout to handle the financial part of this deal under Google Checkout Purchase Protection program.This way you will receive assistance for the purchase, paperwork, title transfer and an extended warranty.I already have tons of emails so I hope you understand that I need to sort them out.I will take in consideration only those buyers who are really interested in buying the boat, to be sure that I don't waste my time with endless discussions. This way, I shall be assured of the serious intentions.So if you find these terms acceptable and you wish to buy my boat, let me know and i will get back to you with further details..THIS WAS THE E-MAIL I RECEIVED TODAY, SAME BOAT BUT NOW ALL THE WAY TO THE OTHER END OF CANADA.

I guessed it was a scam purely on such a low price, I would have paid £10,000!!!! I did reply and then received back comments but I will NOT be parting with my hard earned cash!!!!

Hey people, Just wanted to throw another scam out there. luckily a post by Barry schwartz july 28th 2012 involved the same person i just got an email from.   Oliver Savic (work446@comcast.net) is now trying to sell a 1969 Camaro $12,000 and referenced Google Wallet as their financial route that they would like to take. I've never heard of google wallet so i googled it and their name and Barry's post is what it came up with. They are claiming the car is in Detroit MI and can be shipped with the 5 day waiting period yada, yada, yada. You all know the rest.

Soooo glad I found this site and the place couldn't WU my money yesterday.  I almost got fleeced for $4500.  It will now sit in my purse for a while.  Even when I expressed doubts the email I got reflected the exact same things you guys are saying here.  He even has 26 photos on Flickr for you to browse through.  My guy is Douglas L Hartley and he is in London.  He says he has no phone to use as he is working at a secret place. Wouldn't fly to Germany to make the transaction.  It is kind of heartbreaking since it was a really nice car.  Offer $4500 but KBB at its lowest is $6300.  Anyway...thanks for putting the exact emails out there.  They are Verbatim!

Definitely a scam! She just sent me the following email  I'm writing you regarding my 2002 Honda Accord EX (2.3L with automatic transmission). The car has never been in any kind of accidents, All scheduled services has been done by Honda dealership with paperwork in hand. It has a Clear Title. The car has 50,200 miles on it. It is loaded with options such as PIONEER AVIC Z2 NAVIAGATION SYSTEM WITH IPOD AND BLUETOOTH. Automatic and power everything, Premium Sound System, Leather Seats, Cruise Control and much more.  $2500 it's OK for me. I sell the car at this price because I can't enjoy it due to my job(I work as a casino dealer on a cruise ship), I'm a single woman and I have nobody close who can use it. The car was used by my son, as he loved it very much, but he did not enjoy it as he died last year. It brings very bad memories to me, I want to get rid of it. I just registered under my name. All documents, including owner's manual, Clear Title and a bill of sale on your name will be provided along with the car. Also about payment and shipping I will use only Google Checkout program so we can both be protected. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you, Isabella Torres

I think I had emails from the same person!  The 2002 A4 looked great, and the price was lower than any others really.  He also said he was in Montana for a new job, and that the company offered him relocation assistance to ship the car for free.  I'm definitely not going to get involved with this.

Just like the story below I to found a guy in the military with a 2007 toy hauler camper for sale. Asking price way below what the unit is worth, and I know this because I am currently selling a similar unit myself. I told him that a relative would come and inspect the unit and pay him cash he said that it had to go through google checkout. Why when I have cash money. He offered to let the relative look at it only after I sent a 50% deposit, not a chance from this guy. So if you see an item post any where by this guy watch out.  william.berry43@gmail.com

 I just got this response from a vehicle that is being offered on CARS.com. Sorry for the delay in getting back, I was in a business trip and just came back. I wanted to let you know that my 2011 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet is still available. I recently divorced and moved back to my home country, Canada. The car is here, too. Sorry for the confusion with the location, I advertised my vehicle nation-wide. Please note it is still registered in the United States so there will be no import taxes or additional fees to pay. The car is registered on my name and the title is clear (no lien). It is in great condition, no dents or scratches. It wasn't involved in any accident and it is a non-smoker vehicle. The asking price is $27,000. I had a buyer offering $27,500, but I've lost about 10 days waiting for him to pay just to find out in the end that his loan wasn't approved. I don't want to offend you, but the car is priced for a fast sale so please if you intend to apply for a loan or financing do not reply to my email! Because of the amount involved and the distance, I want to use Google Wallet for closing this deal. If you are not aware of how they work you should know that they will allow you to test drive and inspect the car before I get the money. You will have 3 to 5 days allowed for inspection, to decide whether you want to keep it or not before they release the funds to me. I look forward hearing from you.   Maria 509-590-0096

I almost got scammed on a Rhino UTV.  Here is how it went.... Hello, Thank you for your inquiry regarding my ATV. It is in perfect condition, there's not even a scratch or any dents on it. Everything about it is in perfect condition. I have clear title for it, no liens or loans.  The ATV is priced to sell quickly and the final price that I'm asking for it is $3,000 including shipping and handling costs. My husband died in Iraq 3 months ago and me and my daughter decided to sell the house and move to my sister's. The ATV reminds us very much of my husband but we finally understood that we have to move on with our lives. Although my husband will have his place in our hearts forever. I can't afford to take days off my work for this sale so i'm trying to sell them online. If you are really interested in purchasing the ATV please reply to this email and i will provide further instructions regarding payment and delivery. P.S.: Below you will a full desription and the pictures i have taken for this sale.  Engine size (cc):  700Drive train:  4-Wheel driveType:  SportTransmission type:  Automatic Exterior color:  Red I asked to talk to her and she gave me some excuse about an ear surgery and how she cant talk.  I asked if a friend in AZ, where it would ship form, could go look at it and she said no.  Red flags all the way.  I offered cash and she said no.  Red flag number two.  The next email went... Thank you for your kind thoughts. 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. I have to let you know that i listed all over US because shipping is included in the price. The ATV is Google's shipping center in Fort Smith, AR and from there it will be shipped to my buyer's address. I have registered the ATV with Google Checkout Protection Program so a local pick-up is not an option.This transaction is covered by Google Checkout'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 ATV will be my concern. I strongly assure you it will not be the case for a refund. I have used the Google Checkout in the past and all my transaction ended succesfully. You pay to Google Checkout and they will transfer the funds to me only after you get the ATV.  The financial part of our transaction is going through Google Checkout and here are the steps: - I need your full name, shipping address and phone#; - I will forward this information to Google Checkout purchase protection department and they will start our transaction; - Google Checkout 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 ATV you will have another 5 days to inspect it. - when the inspection period ends, Google Checkout contacts you and if there are any issues with the ATV, they will fully refund you within 3 business days and the ATV will be shipped back at my expense. If all is good with the ATV, 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 number, in order to start the transaction! I am looking forward to hearing from you.I kept it going for a few more emails to see how far I could take it after looking at a few sites warning about a scam.  Don't fall for the sob stories and the Google checkout scam.  The name this scammer is using is Tiffani Garcia.  The Craigslist post went away after one day so I could not report her.

From the looks of it, the following website is the same scam: http://azdiscountshopping.com/ This website was created 17 days ago and only has a payment option of "Google Checkout".  No contact number or anything.  Not trusting it...

Here's another from grace.madis@comcast:disqus  Grace Madison grace.madis@comcast.net2:16 PM (10 hours ago)to undisclosed recipients Hi, I'm writing you regarding my 2007 Honda CBR 600 RR. It has 12,600 miles, it's in very good condition and comes with clean title. The final price is $2245. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the bike, I'm selling it for this price because I have financial problems and I need money asap. I left the bike in Cape Coral, FL at the shipping company as all the documents because I'm currently on a cruise ship with my new job. If you are interested to purchase it, I want to use Google Checkout for payment and shipping processes because they act like an escrow company and by using them we are both protected. Let me know if you are interested or if you have any other questions. I attached some pics so you can see it better..net:

I got the same email from "Mary Spethman" after inquiring about the ATVs even though I knew it was a scam the whole time just wanting to see how far she would go with it. We had a few back and forth emails until she refused to tell me the address of where the ATV's are located. Can't anyone track her email maryspethm@gmail.com? These people need to be stopped!

Hey this is CRAZY!!! I almost fell for it myself! Im glad I researched this " Google Check-Out" on google before sending my payment! This is how my story went.... Hello and sorry for delay, My name is Jennifer and I am selling this 2005 Acura TL Navigation because of my disability, being deaf and not able to drive it. It belonged to my husband, who passed away not long ago. The price is this low because I need to sell it before 20th June. The car is in perfect condition, I had an mechanic look over it before placing the ad. I do have the title, clear and is under my name. The car has about 64,100 miles on it, Automatic Transmission, Engine: 3.2L V6. As i stated in my ad the price is $2,870. I've recently move to Bismarck, ND, I have the car with me and i am able to ship it to you at no extra cost. Let me know if you are interested, email back. Regards !! P.

I was scammed by a guy named James S. Roppolo from New York NY...he was supposed to be a third party google checkout agent who had me western union 2800.00 to him with the promise that I would get a 2004 Nissan Maxima SE in 5 days shipped out from an army base...the seller...Alexander McBride was being deployed and wanted to get rid of the car...he emailed me up until I wired the money...western union was making an attempt to stop the transfer this morning and after being on hold for almost fifteen minutes...I was told the transfer was unable to be stopped... That was the last of my money...and I am now without the car and my almost 3000.00...(paid almost 200.00 in transfer fees...) Please help me...western union told me that I needed to contact my local police department...they also told me that they would mail me a fraud packet that I needed to fill out and mail back so that they could send it to the national fraud prevention center database...I dont know what else to do besides sit...wait...and hope and pray that I get my money back somehow... my email is nhollander7@gmail.com if anybody has anything else that I may beable to do in this situation... thank you...

I was just given this one for a car i was looking at on Craigslist. This is the second one I have gotten in two days. Please be careful when looking at big purchases on there. These people give all the good people selling things a bad name. Don't let them fool you by making you purchase something you haven't even looked at in-person. Hello, This 2002 Nissan Maxima SE with 121,800 miles, has no leaks or drips and it has never been smoked in.This car has been extremely well maintained with a full service history.The title is clean with no lien against it. The car looks exactly as presented in the presale sheet you've already seen and I assume full responsibility if otherwise, also handle the title transfer for an extra $75.00 My car no needs nothing to run, it's in excellent condition and has been extremely well maintained with a full service history, oil was changed at 3500 miles. Bought it when i was serving in U.S. Army base from there 10 years ago. In case it gets sold I will take care of delivery.I have dropped my price to $1,920.00 since I need to sell it before May 25th, when I will be deployed in Afghanistan with my platoon replacing the troops schedule to come home.If you're interested to conclude this purchase in a timely manner email me your; FULL NAME and SHIPPING ADDRESS & PHONE NUMBER to open a case with Google Checkout and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure. The financial part will be managed by them, which means that you will have a 7 days inspection period before committing to buy the vehicle. In this way both, buyer and seller are 100% covered during the steps of this transaction. Year: 2002 Make: Nissan Model: Maxima SE Mileage: 121,800 Title: Clear Body type: Sedan Exterior color: White Engine: 3.5L 6 cyl Fuel type: Gasoline Transmission: Automatic Hope to hear from you soon, Lajuanna Baker

The two emails I recieved were WORD FOR WORD exactly the same as Josh posted 15 days ago. The only difference was the site it would be shipped from. WOW! How can someone stoop so low. Too do something like this is one thing, but With all our troops do for us...to use a story like this. WOW!

Dooooooon't do it. In my email string with this guy, he said that he was being deployed to Afghanistan. At the below dealer trade in price he is quoting, it should have sold the day it went on Craigslist to someone right where the car is allegedly sitting. He shouldn't have had to post all over the country like Texas, or where I am in Missouri.

any one getting this one Hi, the 2007 Forest River Cherokee WOLF PACK Widebody 18DFWP Toy Hauler/Camper is still for sale and my final price is $2875 shipping included. The title is clear ( VIN: 4X4TCTT217X001883 - no lien or lease on it). It hasn't been wrecked, in a flood or damaged in any way. The camper will come with all papers and receipts that you need to register it on your name. I'm selling it for this price because my husband was recently promoted so we had to move to Augusta, GA. Besides, there are a lot of things which have priority now, so this camper has need to go as soon as possible because we need cash. As you probably noticed, the price is rather low $2,875. Due to the fact that I'm very busy with my work and I don't stay too much at home, the camper is already at the shipping company and will be delivered with "express delivery", again the shipping costs are included in the price. The transaction will be made under Google Checkout buyer protection plan. This way we can receive assistance for the transaction, title transfer, etc. If you like to see more photos please follow: https://picasaweb.google.com/105816258031288699721/WolfPackTrailer?authuser=0&authkey=Gv1sRgCNrsgJmU99CCEg&feat=directlink If the link don't work copy and paste in your browser. Please let me know if you want to reserve the camper for you and I will give you more info. -- Thank you Martha Rissa desnu.09@gmail.com; on behalf of; Martha R

I think I emailed that person too! It was for a 2005 honda accord for like only $3,500 and he said he was selling it so cheap because he was being deployed to Afghanistan soon and didn't want it to go to wast in his backyard and that we should use google checkout and he would pay for shipping but now reading all of these other stories I'm pretty sure its a scam... to bad though because it looked like a really nice car.

05/17/2012 06:50 pm

Wow!!! it looks like a lot of this is going on....I'm glad you guys are here letting me know cause i've been doing some research on the same situation that is happening to me right now when I got interested on a vehicle that i saw online which was well below the average price for the vehicle. I contacted the seller and her name is Nathalie Tyler selling a 1991 Toyota MR2 Here's the conversation: From Natalie: " Hi and thank you for your interest, the 1991 Toyota MR2 is in great shape,no engine problems,damages or hidden defects other then the seats.It was always garaged and never smoked in.The car was my husband`s as he loved it very much, but he did not enjoy it so much,he died in a IRAQ 6 months ago. It brings very bad memories to me, I want to get rid of it.I`m a single mother with 2 children's and now I have some problems with the money because we just moved in another house.The mileage is 83,700 and my last price is $ 2700 . Please let me know if you are still interested.Thank you,Nathalie Tyler." My Response to Nathalie: " Yes I am I can give you cash for it. How much would it be to get it shipped to Aurora,CO? You're located in maryland correct?" Now before I post here next response keep in mind I never said anything nice or commented on anything she said about her life or situation, so this is where is began to get skeptical. Nathalie's Response: "Hi again and thank you for your kind words, now please give me a little time to explain you the process of this transaction. Before leaving I had prearranged the deal with Google Company so my presence isn't necessary. The car is located in Bowie, MD at the shipping company, ready to be delivered. You will receive the car by shipping. The car will be insured in case of damage and it will be delivered to your DOOR. I recently had a buyer and i went ahead and made the arrangements for the shipping and he paid all the fees, but unfortunately, my buyer’s loan was not approved so I was not able to complete the transaction with him and i still have it ready to ship anywhere for free. I will send you the car with all the documents that you need in order to register (title, bill of sale, owners manual.., etc.) The title is clear and clean!The shipping will take 3-5 days.You will have 5 days to test it and inspect the car prior to make any purchase and if by any reason you find something you don't like about it you can send it back on my cost. I'm sorry this isn't a local deal but i hope i can make it up with the great price i am selling the car. Anyway it's in perfect condition, the company that i hired for the transaction already checked the car and the papers to it and everything is in perfect order.If you want to start this deal, email me your full name, address and phone number for shipping and I will require those forms right now. As soon as i receive those information’s from you i will forward them to Google Checkout, they will contact you with all the details that you need to complete this deal.Waiting your email with the requested details.Best regards,Nathalie. " My Response back: "Can you give me your number or better yet can you call me @ 720-***-****.So if what i'm reading is accurate and everything you're telling me is true and correct and not a scam..... Shipping is free directly to my door and the total of what I'm paying for including the car is $2700 and no more, which I will pay 5 days after I receive the car? Which I will pay to google checkout? Is this correct? " After this email she didn't respond herself, but instead she had another person repond for her. This guys name is Eric Reef Eric Reefs Response: "Hi again Nick, here's a briefing of the transaction :After I'll have the confirmation that the money has been deposited with Google Checkout I'll ship you the car,after the car reaches your address you will have 5 days to inspect and test it. Within this period you have to decide if you purchase it or not. If you decide to take it you will have to contact Google and let them know that, so they can release the payment to me. If you won't like it you will have to ship it back to me within 5 days and Google will refund you, but I am sure this will not be the case. I hope that this clarifies how the transaction works.Let e know if it's OK with you so I can iniiate the transaction with Google. Regards! My Response to Eric Reef: "Thats sounds fine but, how am I guaranteed that I'm going to get the car and I'm not just blindly giving away money? I need someone to contact me personally and we can discuss this instead just exchanging emails. I can be reached at 720-***-****." I haven't heard anything back yet after this email, probably don't expect to if there's not a real transaction happening. So everyone watch for these little signs and wordings they use which you will be able to recognize right away that it's a scam.: )

So glad to have found this blog! This is a current one that just totally hit me the wrong way in my gut, so I decided to be the investigator. This one was posted on May 20, 2010 - 2001 Toyota Tacoma $2900. http://stlouis.craigslist.org/ctd/3028023578.html - I am currently emailing this guy and he also has pics on photo bucket. He also is using that he is stationed in Greece and going to Afghanistan & that the truck would be delivered to my home via the Logistic Department. Be careful!!

Amanda

05/22/2012 09:31 pm

Here is a copy of the actual email about the 2001 Toyota Tacoma - $2900 Please take a few moments and read my email carefully, I know it is long, but I will explain all the details about the truck and the transaction. At the moment I'm stationed at Athens, Greece. making final preparations before deploying to Afghanistan. The truck is already at our Military Logistic Department in Fort Lewis, Washington, crated and ready to go. The Logistic Department will deliver the truck to your home. The shipping is free for you. Since the truck is in a military base, with no access you can not go there and take it, only the Logistic Department can deliver it, because is in their custody. Shipping may take anywhere between 2 to 4 business days depending on the destination. All documents you need for ownership, manuals and bill of sale will be provided along with the truck. For the payment I would like to use Google Checkout as a third party. They will keep your money into a protection account until you get the truck and will release it to me after inspection period is over and you agree to keep it. So, this is not a blind transaction, you can see the truck before committing to buy and to eliminate any concerns you will have 10 days to inspect it. If you decide not to keep it Google Checkout will refund you the money, no questions asked, and shipping back will be my concern. I think this is more than fair for both of us. I'll start the official procedure, and Google Checkout will contact you about this. If you are interested in buying it just mail me back with: - Your Full Name - Required by Google Checkout (You'll receive important guidelines + instructions from them.) - Your Shipping Address and Phone Number - Required by the Logistic Department (They will call you with delivery/pickup instructions 1 day ahead so you can communicate what time schedule work best for your to receive the truck) Again I want to point out that because I am going to Afghanistan this sale is my top priority and I am looking after a fast transaction, with no delays. That is why I decided to lower the price, to avoid wasting time with negotiations and find a buyer as soon as possible. Thanks, hope to do business with you soon!

Glad I did my research! ... to good to be true!! This is what this person emailed after we inquired about the travel trailer. Martha R sevenstarsleft7@gmail.com 12:55 PM (10 hours ago) The camper is already at the shipping company here in Augusta, GA ready for delivery. You will be paying just $1,950, because the insurance has been paid by me ($400) and also the shipping ($525). I think is more then fair that you pay $1,950 as the shipping is my responsibility. I want to tell you that we will use Google Checkout in this transaction in order for both of us to be 100% protected and insured by them. This way we can receive assistance for the transaction, title transfer, etc. I am located out of the city due to occupational obligations so unfortunately this means we can only make the deal through Google Checkout buyer protection plan. Since I presume you are not familiar with Google Checkout Buyer Protection Program, I have described it step by step: 1. Buyer, buy the item from Google Checkout Auction. 2. Buyer sends the payment to Google Checkout. 3. Google Checkout confirms to seller that the amount has been received. 4. Seller performs the required services (shipping, insurance). 5. Buyer accepts delivery and informs Google Checkout about the acceptance and sends the reminder of money. 6. Google Checkout releases the money to seller. As you can see, you will receive the camper BEFORE any money will be released to me. You'll get the chance to inspect it, test it and everything you like while your money are still safely held in Google Checkout's trust account. ONLY after you confirm to Google Checkout that you pleased with the camper, they will release the money to me. If, for some reason, you disagree with the item (I assure you that is NOT going to happen since camper looks like I described in the listing and photos are real and recently taken) it will be shipped back to me on my expense and Google Checkout will full refund your money back. If you are still interested in buying the camper I can give you the link to my Google Checkout auction page. It’s a buy it now auction so you won’t have to bid. (With no further obligation or fees). Thanks, Martha Rissa

Here is the one I am getting on Craigs List? Hi there, I'm active duty in the US Army, stationed at Casper, WY. to complete the pre-deployment training program. The car is stored on a small military facility. It has been prepared for immediate transportation, but it can also be picked up from the base, as long as you'll be able to come here in the next 2 days. If you can't manage to come here before I'll be moved to my next duty station, the car can be transported by a military carrier (transportation charges are included in the selling price). To eliminate any concerns, you will have a 5 days inspection period, prior purchase approval. Due to the urgent nature of sale, the acquisition process will be conducted through the third party payment platform provided by Google Checkout. They basically implement a secure and controlled environment that allows the payment transfer between buyer and seller. Please note that a refundable deposit will be paid (50% of the total price), as proof of your intention to complete the purchase transaction. The money will be held in trust by Google Checkout. If you want to proceed and you have sufficient funds to complete the transaction, please email me back with the following information; - Full Name and Shipping Address (Home Address, City, State, zip/Postal Code) - Info. required by Google Checkout they will contact you with simple, easy to follow step by step guidelines. - Phone Number: (Home,Mobile,Office) - Info. required by the shipping company, they will call you with delivery/pickup instructions 1 day ahead so you can communicate what time schedule work best for your to receive the Ford. I look forward to your response, Thomas Baldwin

Hi. I live in Pensacola Fl & was looking at the Mobile AL Craigslist under RV'S. Interesting in buying a used camper & saw the following ad. Nobody in his right mind would buy a camper sight unseen. After getting a responding email I knew it was a scam. Here is ad & reply email: http://dmgoddess.com/tmp/dmcos9.html Contact Seller: akshm147@hotmail.com Comments: 99 Sunnybrook 29 Feet long Queen size bed, full size pull out sleeper sofa bed, excellent condition, new inspection, ready for fun in the sun. Comes with hitch and sway bars. Lots of storage space inside and under queen size bed, well cared for and used lightly. ------------- I received this response from another email address, NOT the one listed above: leslie.keffer5@gmail.com "First of all I want to thank you for your interest for my camper. I sell it at this price($2,000.00 ) because I have been divorced recently. Now the camper is in my property and due the reason of my job i don't need it(i am working on a cruise boat as a casino dealer). This camper is in excellent working conditions, no scratches,no pets,no smoke in, flaws or any kind of damage, slightly used in 100% working and looking conditions and comes with a clear title. From the beginning you have to know that for the payment I request only secure pay, I prefer the payment to be done using Google Checkoutservices. We will use a safe payment method because I am affiliated at Google Checkout and I have a purchase protection account for $20,000.00 The final price that I want for this camper is $2,000.00 including shipping and handling. If you are interested in buying it please provide me your full name, full shipping address and a phone # so I can initiate the deal through Google Checkout. I will wait your answer very soon. Few details: 1999 Sunnybrook Camper Slide Outs: 1 Length (feet): 29 Sleeping Capacity: 6 Air Conditioners: 1 -------------- Lol. I live 60 miles from Mobile, If I bought it after viewing it, I'd tow it home. I think these scammers should be hunted down and shot!

Hey, I got something similar. But with a 1966 Shelby. It looks really clean and fully restored. Also free shipping. For $4,300. And that car how it is would be priced over $30,000 Now that ime reading this story about the ATV. It seems like a posible scam. I will try to get the email from my brother. I had a felling it was too good to be true.

received a scam email regarding buying a boat on Craigslist. My name is Cristina Olgaro, I'm emailing you regarding the 1999 Bayliner Trophy Walkaround that I have for sale. The jet boat is in perfect condition, with no need for additional repairs, no dings, special marks whatsoever, never been involved in any accidents. The interior looks great (smoke-free). It has Mercury Optimax Bluewater series with new plugs,water pump and shift cables,,very good condition cuddy cabin, can sleep two maybe three,raymarine hd ds500x color fishfinder, and standard horizon chartplotter with offshore chip kenwood stereo with pioneer speakers,bimini top, anchor with 200 ft rope. Tires are excellent. It has a clear title with no loans or liens on it. I'm selling the boat because my 21's years old son died 2 months ago in a car accident. A drunk driver hit him and his fiancee coming to our home at his little brother birthday. It was his boat and it brings me bad memories and that's the reason I want to sell it as soon as possible. The price that I'm asking is $2,200.00 Just let me know if you are still interested and where are you located . Thank you, Cristina and Michael Olgaro cristinaolgaro@gmail.com

Got the same exact scam messages but selling Sea Doos... These people are the scum of the earth. In my email, the seller is going by Angela Spates, she e is even has a picture posted of what is supposed to be her and her grieving daughter... Scum of the earth I tell you. Here is the email: Anyone feel free to do as you will with it. angespat@gmail.com Here is the email correspondance (same as shared bellow by others) buyer beware. Thank you for your inquiry regarding my 2 jet skis and trailer. They are in perfect condition, there's not even a scratch or any dents on them. Everything about them is in perfect condition. I have clear titles for them, no liens or loans. The 2 jet skis&trailer are priced to sell quickly and the final price that I'm asking for them is $2,891 including shipping and handling costs. My husband died in Iraq 3 months ago and me and my daughter decided to sell the house and move to my sister's. The jet skis &trailer reminds us very much of my husband but we finally understood that we have to move on with our lives. Although my husband will have his place in our hearts forever. I can't afford to take days off my work for this sale so i'm trying to sell them online. If you are really interested in purchasing the 2 jet skis &trailer please reply to this email and i will provide further instructions regarding payment and delivery. Regards! Angela Spates

This sounds like a new one about a horse trailer: Subject: RE: trailer Hello again, First of all I have to tell you that I can't use the phone due the casino policy. Here on the cruise ship, the dealers have prohibited to use the phone. The trailer is already at the shipping company in San Diego, CA ready for the shipping.The shipping process will take between 4 -7 days, depending on your location. I have a contract with Google Checkout so this deal must go through them. As I said in the first email I work as a casino dealer on a cruise ship and I can't meet you or bring you the trailer, so that's why I am using a shipping company. Since this is an online transaction I wanted the both of us to be safe so for this deal I am using Google Checkout , and that means that you have 5 days from the time you receive the trailer to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not. Here is how it works: 1.First of all I will need the following details from you: - Full Name - Full Shipping Address 2. After I will receive the details from you, I will forward them to Google Checkout. 3. After they will process your info, they will send us both invoices.Your will make the payment to Google Checkout and the funds will be 100% insured by Google Checkout. 4. Google Checkout will contact me and I will ship the trailer to you. After you receive the trailer you will have 5 days to test, verify and do whatever you need to the trailer.If you will buy it, then I will receive the payment from Google Checkout. Please take into consideration that I will get paid only after you receive the trailer and make sure everything is as agreed. 5. If you will decide that you will not buy it, Google Checkout will refund you and I will have the shipping company come pick up my trailer. If you wish to make the transaction, please send me the necessary info so that we can proceed. Thank you This is the email address it is from: From: Sophie Gagnon BEWARE!!!!!!

Need to remind all your friends and family if the deal is too good- it's not real!!!! Here is another Motorcycle, a Goldwing offered by the same scammer or family of scammers: I had a little fun with this one, no reply after I sent the second e-mail: Please read the email I sent previoously: HI, Excellent! My brother in law James lives in Bridgeport, just across the bay. He has agreed to inspect the Goldwing ( he is a Honda mechanic) and if it is as you say we will purchase it without delay. Please send me a phone number and address so he can arrange a time an place to meet your representative for the inspection. I assume since you are stationed out of state and getting ready for redeployment you have a responsible party who could handle the sale and provide prompt deliverly of the Goldwing with clear title. Looking forward to you prompt reply. Thanks, Franklin, Larry Sr. USMC (Retired) I must insist on James inspecting this motorcycle prior to enacting ANY transaction. My intentions is to leave it with him after the purchase and later on this year ride it back to Phoenix. Send me a contact name and phone number of a person or business that can provide access for inspection. James is also a volunteer deputy sheriff, he will run the vin numbers upon inspection. -----Original Message----- From: Maria Casto To: Larry Franklin, Sent: Wed, May 30, 2012 9:49 am Subject: Re: 2006 Honda Gold Wing - $5600 (phoenix) Hi again, Please take a few moments and read my email carefully, I know it’s long, but I’ve covered pretty much all the details of this transaction. As I've previously told you, I'm currently involved in a military program. At the moment I'm stationed at Fort Wainwright, MEDDAC Alaska making final preparations before deploying to Afghanistan. Due to military security reasons I'm restricted from leaving the unit's facility under any purpose and have no phone access. The shipping won't be a problem; military has a considerable discount, so I can handle it by myself, with no charges whatsoever on your account. The financial part of this sale will be managed by Google Checkout. The bike will be shipped to the buyer's address for a 5 days inspection period (shipping 48-72 hrs). All documents you need for ownership, clear title, manuals, carfax buyback guarantee and bill of sale will be provided along with the bike. Sale price is $5600. Here is how GoogleCheckout it will work: 1.First of all I will need the following details from you: - Full Name - Full Shipping Address - Phone Number - required by the shipping company, they will call you with delivery/pickup instructions 1 day ahead so you can communicate what time schedule work best for your to receive the item. 2. After I will receive the details from you, I'll ask them to fill you in with the transaction details. Google Checkout will contact you with simple, easy to follow step by step guidelines. So, this is not a blind transaction, you can see the bike before you decide to buy. This way we are both protected: i will know that i have a serious buyer who has the money to pay me and you will be able to see and inspect the bike before buying. Again I want to point out that because I am going to Afghanistan this sale is my top priority and I am after a fast transaction, with no delays. That is why I decided to lower the price, to avoid wasting time with negotiations and find a buyer as soon as possible. I look forward to your response, Col.(Dr.) Maria Casto 4076 Neely Road Fort Wainwright, AK 99703-7400 MEDDAC AK

Thank you for sharing your bad hap. There is a woman that is now selling through Craigslist a 2006 Honda accord for $1950.00 She states that her husband died and she moved to Nebraska. She is going through Google checkout. I am debating whether this is for real. Can you please send me a picture of the car, to see if it is the same one. Or could you tell me something about your bad fortune. I was ready to start the transation, but decided to look for some info. because it sound too good to be true.

Mine was with a jeep. It went a little like this I have a low price ( $ 2,375 including delivery to your home address ), because I want to sell the car very quickly. My husband died 2 months ago (he had a heart attack) and I have bad memory here, I along with my son decided to sell the house and we moved to my sister in Manchester, NH. I want to sell the car, because was to my husband and I have another car. Unfortunately I can't conclude this transaction personally because my work involves a lot of traveling but I left everything prepared for the sale. If you are really interested in purchasing, please email me with your details (name and address) for the shipping process. I use google checkout protection program and I can give you a 7 day trial period. Thankyou Do not fall for this. Super dangerous. Nobody who is looking to sell professionally is going to go into that much personal detail about their lives. DONT REPLY if they give you the google checkout sob story. Her name is Denise Edgar.

The first clue was I could not recall the craigslist posting from the link in the email reply. The deal is too good to be true. This is very fustrating as I have been searching for a car for awhile and have sent numerous enquiries. It is so sad that someone would rip people off! You are correct. They have to be stopped.

I recently had. the same kind of experience with 3, that's right 3 different google sellers. They are trying to sell 3 different 2004 Acura TL. They were all out of town sellers and wanted me to send the money Western Union they claimed to be using EBAY and GOOGLE Checkout. One person even claimed to be US Air Force. That made me sick! Be careful folks. If the deal sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. What is kind of funny though, is I gave each of them very false information and they immediately verified my info. Also, I called the auto shipping company and they had never heard of these people. DON'T EVER SEND MONEY BY WESTERN UNION. You will never get it back!!!!

try nkpjd-3063663437@sale.craigslist.org he uses David Wilde as his name claims to be in the coast guard in colorado and they have phone restrictions hence why he can't talk to me on the phone. He says hes being deployed to Afghanistan to replace the troops that are coming home and needs to sell his car before june 25th. The same story with Google checkout took place also so i felt funny about it.

Hi! I'm talking to someone who is selling a Nissan Maxima for like 3800 or so on craigslist, she is claiming to be an oceanographer and the car is already packaged up in Boise, ID and says it'll ship to me and that it is already packaged because she had a previous buyer who didn't follow through so she left it packaged. Her email is jennifer.bradley47@gmail.com ... it is looking very similar to the jen taylor person you were all talking about below.

Just found another one on a 2006 Nissan Altima Hey, I have a low price for my 2006 Nissan Altima ($ 2,350 including delivery to your home address ), because I want to sell the car very quickly. My husband died 2 months ago (he had a heart attack) and this vehicle brings me bad memories and that's the reason that I want to sell it. I along with my daughter decided to sell the house and we moved to my sister in Nebraska. Unfortunately I can't conclude this transaction personally because my work involves a lot of travelling but I left everything prepared for the sale. If you are really interested in purchasing, please email me with your details (name and address) for the shipping. Thank you

Got one from this email address too. I think I actually tracked down the real David Wilde on FB after succeeding in getting the scammer to tell me where the car was located. The scammer also provided some personal details, like being in the National Guard. Looks like he is using someone's real identity to avoid being caught out....

I just had the same scam. I'm looking for a cheap car for my son as a graduation gift so I go to Craigslist and there's a beautiful 2001 Honda Accord for $1985 but it was listed under a 2000 Nissan Maxima SE heading but I really don't pay much attention because the price was too good to be true and it was. The person contacted me via email that he's in the military and they're shipping out on June 25th to Afganistan for two years and that's why he's selling so cheap. So I email back to say I'm very interested and when can I come see it because it was listed as being in my hometown. Then he hit me with the email about the car is with him at a military base in TN, he can't talk on the phone for security reasons and he'll use Google checkout protection program so both of us will be safe during this transaction. Well little did this person know I'm retired military and have gone to Afghanistan a time or two and know the process. So I email him letting know this and I will probably never hear from him again. It's a shame that people really succeed in these sort of scams.

Beware everyone!!!!!! The scammer who was using the sad story of the husband died 2 months ago and she along with her daughter have moved to another state where her sister lives and her job requires her to travel.....Does this sound familiar? Well, she is now saying her name is Crystal Allen, but she is still using the same story and (1) item she is trying to sell right now is a 1993 honda prelude that is like new and has been garage kept...So beware everyone...I hope this fool is caught and SHAME ON HER OR HIM!!!!!

He was with his fiance's car coming to our home at his little brother birthday of 15 years old. The car belonged to my son and it brings me bad memories and that's the reason I want to sell it. The last price is $1900. Me and my husband travel a lot with our business and we want to make this deal through Google Checkout Program.I just need your full name,full shipping address, home/cell # so I can initiate the transaction.(with no further obligation or fees).Google Checkout will contact you with all the Transaction/shipping details you will need.We will take care of the shipping so don't worry.

Someone going by the name David Stutheit was trying to scam me out of $1965 for a 2002 Nissan Maxima. Sounded and looked way to good to be true with pictures he provided. He is claiming to be on the medical team in the air force and is being deployed July 2nd to Afghanistan for 2 years and can let the car just go to waste in his backyard. He said he would pay for the car to be shipped to me from Tennessee which didn't make sense because I found the listing in San Antonio where I live. And sure enough when he wanted me to pay through Google protection, I of course research it first. So what is the first thing I come across? Many fraud links with tona of emails word for word like mine. Be careful! His email is davtheit@gmail

The vehicle is here with me at the base but I’ve already made all the arrangements with DAS to pick it up from the base.The title will be sent with the car. I think the car will be in 3-5 days to your address.I will take care of shipping charges . I will send all necessary paperwork (clear title, bill of sale, user’s manual, pink slip etc). Regarding the payment I want to use Google Checkout protection program. You'll get 5 days to inspect and test drive after delivery. During that 5 days testing period I will not be getting any money. Once you inspect and decide to keep the car, will confirm your decision with Google and only then they will re-route me the money. In this way we are both protected. I need to know if you are interested in buying it so I can ask Google to send you the details on how this works. I have to fill out a form on Google and I need the name that will go on the title and an address where you want the car delivered. Once I do it, Google will email you all the details on this transaction and we can get the ball rolling.

Here is one with the address: Hey, This is Jeremy. I received your email about my 2006 Polaris Ranger 500 EFI 4X4. The atv is in great shape. It was always garaged. It has normal wear for the age. No mechanical or electrical problems. It has been extremely well maintained. Clean title in hand. It does not need anything additional to function, has 2,856 miles. Has fully automatic transmission with hi/lo and reverse, parking brake, push button four wheel drive with locking rear differential, hydraulic brakes front and rear, independent suspension for an excellent ride, hourmeter, large tip up rear box, glove box storage compartment, under hood storage compartment, six ply radial tires and ams custom aluminum wheels, glass windshield with tilt out vent kit installed, front brushguard installed. It just completed a full inspection and is good to go. The price for the atv is $2,900. For more pictures here is a link to the atv's photo gallery: http://www.flickr.com/photos/79989782@N05/sets/72157630190927876 I am currently stationed at Fort Irwin (U.S. Military training base in CA) making final preparations before deploying to Afghanistan. The atv is here with me at the base but don't worry as the shipping won't be a problem; military has a considerable discount, so I can handle it by myself with no charges whatsoever on your account. Shipping may take anywhere between 2 to 3 business days depending on the destination. All documents you need for ownership, manuals and bill of sale will be provided along with the atv. For the payment I would like to use Google Checkout as a third party. They will keep your money into a protection account until you get the atv and will release it to me after inspection period is over and you agree to keep the atv. So, this is not a blind transaction, you can see the atv before committing to buy and to eliminate any concerns you will have 5 days to inspect the atv. If you decide not to keep it Google Checkout will refund you the money, no questions asked, and shipping back will be my concern. I think this is more than fair for both of us. If you want to buy it, to start the transaction I will need: - Your Full Name and Address - required by Google Checkout (you'll receive important guidelines + instructions from them.). I want to point out that because I am going to Afghanistan this sale is my top priority and I am looking after a fast transaction, with no delays. That is why I decided to lower the price, to avoid wasting time with negotiations and find a buyer as soon as possible. Thanks, Sgt. Jeremy Pearson You will find him posting in classified all across the Internet. Hey, I have registered the transaction with Google Checkout and they already sent me the invoice and the confirmation that our transaction is now active. Please let me know if they contacted you too. Please check your bulk/junk/spam/ messages, sometimes the invoice go there because of the ever increasing filters of the e-mails nowadays. Thanks, Jeremy jrmypearson@gmail.com Beware----------------->

I, too almost fell for a scam. I was going to purchase two vehicles at one time. I went to Western Union with the money and informed them of what I was going to do. They immediately told me not to do that. There was also a person in line who said they had a friend to get ripped off for $5000 doing that. These people had advertised on Craigslist. I started researching and have read several stories of fraud. Glad I kept my money. Glad I told Western Union my intentions. Glad God has my back!!!

Got the same story for mine as well but it was for a car and through ebay. I didnt go through with it and then found another car on craigslist. The lady was celling her honda civic hybrid 2004 for $2,200 saying the her son had passed away and just needed to get rid of it. We exchanged email for a bit and then on of the emails it said this- I decided to explain to you how the transaction will work in a single mail, so read this email carefully in order for you to understand the transaction. We will use Google checkout Purchase Protection to close the transaction. The bike is already ...... HELLO IM NOT BUYING A BIKE! YOU JUST GOT CAUGHT IN YOUR OWN SCAM THERE BUDDY! Then I was like I want to set up a date to see the car in person, but this time they sent the same thing but it said car not bike and the location had changed from Philadelphia, PA to Cleveland, OH. I replayed to them saying Why does it say (my city) on craigslist if your in Ohio? And you sent me the same email but it said bike insead of a car and the city was different. Just doesnt seem right. I want to see it in person even if you live far away. no response. Please help me out with this and have your son hack her system! her email is- ashleycoleman82@gmail.com

This woman is still doing the same story - on craiglists today and told me thru email the exact same thing - spouse died moved to Nebraska. I searched and searched obits as she said it was just in last 2 months and can't find a thing so I started doing some more searches to see if this was legit cause face it, 2006 with only 61K miles for less than 2K, I just figured it couldn't be real. What this world has come to. I'm glad I found this cite on my searches cause now I know my gut was right. I never got an additional reply when I asked if the car was available to test drive and take to my mechanic to check out...funny I got a reply almost instantly when I first emailed asking for some more basic info. What a real shame that people in our world would make such a tragedy up to make a buck...shame on them!

Check out jenniferhf66@gmail.com who ran this ad for a Porsche which she said is registered in Texas. http://phoenix.craigslist.org/cph/ctd/3092911728.html However that is not a Texas license plate on that car. Google 'Texas license plate' Although at a great angle you can see that the letters are large and they go to within about an inch of the edge of plate. Texas plates all have 'The lone star state' below the numbers which prevents the numbers from getting near the edge of the plate or being as large.

i have just experienced exactly the same scam in the UK, so wanted to put the warning out for others! i found a car on gumtree with a supposed central london location, and a "too god to be true" price. the phone number in the ad did not work, but a lady called "joanna" answered the email, saying that that the car is scotland and will be delivered once payment via google checkout has been received. unfortunately, "joanna" is in training for deployment in Afghanistan and cannot speak in person; but she's happy to send links to the google checkout system which offers me a buyer's protection once i've transferred the funds and grants 7 days to "test" the car .....

The transaction will be made through Google Checkout buyer protection program. I believe this protects both buyer and seller and it's the right way to do this. Next email.... Please give me a little time to explain you the process of this transaction.As I told you in my first e-mail,we just moved to my brother in Winnipeg MB . Before leaving I had prearranged the deal with Google Checkout buyer protection program so my presence isn't necessary. The jet ski is now located in Winnipeg , at the shipping company, ready to be delivered.It will arrive at your address in 2-3 working days. The shipping costs are included in the total price of the jet ski ! You will have 5 days to test and inspect the jet ski to decide if you want to keep it or not. So if you want to make this deal I need the following details from you: full name and address phone # After I will have all this details I will forward them to Google Checkout and I will proceed with this transaction. Google Checkout will contact you with all the details that you need to complete this deal and also to see that I am covered by them and that I am legit seller. Waiting your email with the requested details.

Got this exact one from the same "person," is there a picture of these alleged soldiers for any of you? A picture showed up with their email and made me want to trust them more ... glad I saw this, I almost fell for it. Upon further investigation of the VIN, it's a Civic that was auctioned off in 2010. http://www.autobidmaster.com/carfinder-online-auto-auctions/lot/21318129/COPART_2004_HONDA_CIVIC_EX_PA_PITTSBURGH_SOUTH_PA/

Here is one I just got: Hey, I have a low price for my 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Super Sport($ 2,900 including delivery to your home address ), because I want to sell the car very quickly. My husband died 2 months ago (he had a heart attack) and this vehicle brings me bad memories and that's the reason that I want to sell it. I along with my daughter decided to sell the house and we moved to my sister in Nebraska. Unfortunately I can't conclude this transaction personally because my work involves a lot of travelling but I left everything prepared for the sale. If you are really interested in purchasing, please email me with your details (name and address) for the shipping. tonya77hulbert@hotmail.com

Hi thanks for trying to put a stop to these crooks. My husband saw a Honda Civic 2002 on craigslist where the seller stated that her name is Sarah Collins and that her husband died and she was deaf and needed to sell her car. The pictures of the car look great and we were interested however she said she just moved to Florida and will ship us the car for free. Here's the catch we must send her the $2000 for the car throught google check out. I figured it was a scam. Here is her email col.sarah5@gmail.com. Thanks you.

Are there any stories of any of these people being caught? Are they located in the U.S. or abroad? The bank account people send money to has to be traced somehow right? Where does it go? Of anyone has an issue with someone saying they are in the Army let me know. I can at least check to see if that name is some who's in the Army. No problem with helping out OR tracking them down if you have a good lead or place to start.

I had a very similar experience. However, the email address that was used was maryrichards1968@hotmail.com. Just like SmileKid294, the lady's son had passed away and she just wanted the car sold. She sent me info about doing so thru eBay. Less than 12 hours later, someone else had come through and flagged the posting. Nevertheless, I emailed the person back (just for grins) and am waiting to hear back. I realize there VERY little chance it'll happen, but it'll be interesting to hear what he/she says if I do get a reply.

The deal includes free delivery and it will arrive at your address in 3 days. You will have 5 days to test it and inspect the  vehicle  prior to making any purchase and if by any reason you find something you don't like about it you can send it back at my expense.If you are interested in knowing more info about how it works, i can ask  Google Checkout to send you an email with more information on how to purchase it. Google Checkout  will contact you shortly after they have the details with all the information that you need to complete this deal and you will also have proof that I am covered by them and a legitimate seller. If you would like to receive the email from  Google Checkout  will all the transaction information please reply with your full name and shipping address and ph#  they will contact you right away.

Here is the scam......from Albert Dominguez - albert2rd@gmail.com Hello and sorry for my late reply. I'm writing you regarding my 2004 Chrysler Pacifica. It has 67.900 miles, it's in very good condition and comes with clean title. I'm selling it because my child of only 19 died 4 months ago in a car accident, a drunk driver hit him and his fiancee. He was with his fiance's car coming to our home at his little brother birthday. The car belonged to my son and it brings me bad memories, that's why I want to sell it plus that I have financial problems and I need money asap. The final price is $1,980. I travel a lot with my job and I want to make this deal through Google Checkout. In this way you will be able to inspect and test drive the car before I get paid and I'm sure you have the funds for the purchase. I attached some pics. Let me know if you are interested or if you have any other questions. Albert

07/26/2012 02:28 am

wow i just got an email today about a car i was looking at sooo glad i found this site its the same email that reads..... First of all I have to tell you that I can't use the phone due the military security reasons I'm restricted from leaving the unit's facility under any purpose and have strictly limited phone access.I hope you can understand that we will have to stick to email for now.Right now I'm in a military base of Colorado National Guard. The vehicle is here with me at the base but I’ve already made all the arrangements with DAS to pick it up from the base.The title will be sent with the car. I think the car will be in 3-5 days to your address.I will take care of shipping charges . I will send all necessary paperwork (clear title, bill of sale, user’s manual, pink slip etc). Regarding the payment I want to use Google Checkout protection program. You'll get 5 days to inspect and test drive after delivery. During that 5 days testing period I will not be getting any money. Once you inspect and decide to keep the car, will confirm your decision with Google and only then they will re-route me the money. In this way we are both protected. I need to know if you are interested in buying it so I can ask Google to send you the details on how this works. I have to fill out a form on Google and I need the name that will go on the title and an address where you want the car delivered. Once I do it, Google will email you all the details on this transaction and we can get the ball rolling

Hey i just got this one to from carla.fletcher22@hotmail.com is this a scam??????????????she even provide me with the car fax. First of all I have to tell you that I can't use the phone due the military ship policy. Here on the ship, we have prohibited to use the phone.Please understand me,is my job in the game,military life has many restrictions! The car is already at the shipping company in San Diego, CA ready for the shipping.The shipping process will take between 2 -4 days, depending on your location. I have a contract with Google Checkout so this deal must go through them. As I said in the first email I work at a military ship and I can't meet you or bring you the car, so that's why I am using a shipping company. I will be back home in 6 months! Please understand me that is my only chance to sell the car! Since this is an online transaction I wanted the both of us to be safe so for this deal I am using Google Checkout , and that means that you have 5 days from the time you receive the car to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not. Here is how it works: 1.First of all I will need the following details from you: - Full Name - Full Shipping Address 2. After I will receive the details from you, I will forward them to Google Checkout. 3. After they will process your info, they will send us both invoices.Your will make the payment to Google Checkout and the funds will be 100% insured by Google Checkout . 4. Google Checkout will contact me and I will ship the car to you. After you receive the car you will have 5 days to test, verify and do whatever you need to the car.If you will buy it, then I will receive the payment from Google Checkout. Please take into consideration that I will get paid only after you receive the car and make sure everything is as agreed. 5. If you will decide that you will not buy it, Google Checkout will refund you and I will have the shipping company come pick up my car. If you wish to make the transaction, please send me the necessary info so that we can proceed.Sorry for the long email. I have tried to touch all bases.

jenniferklump2321@gmail.com almost bought a truck from this lady Hi, Thank you for contacting me regarding my 2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac. 100,000 miles on the clock, like new condition, no scratches, no dents, accident-free, clear title. There are no lien or loan on the truck and I'm the registered owner with the title in hand. You will receive all the documents, including the title signed over to your name. As you probably noticed, the price is rather low: $2,400. Unfortunately I have a personal problem and I need the money ASAP. The truck is located in Lemont, IL in my garage. My brother is a DAS employee and can deliver the truck anywhere in the US. The shipping is already paid for. You will have the truck in front of your house in 2 days. You will also have 5 days to inspect the vehicle. If, by any reason, the truck is not as described, or if you find any problems with it, I will pay for the returning fees. I'm sure it won't be the case because it's a state of art vehicle inside and out. Please let me know if you want to reserve the truck for you. Thanks, Jennifer Klump

The logistics of auditing domain submissions is practical.. it's annoying Google doesn't and you get extremely obvious fraud on their service. Look at "lg p880" priced high to low, all the $300 ones are fake and by the same guy.. Every query has fakes, so Google obviously doesn't put much effort into this, but hey we are just users and consumers..

I was on craigslist last night looking for a car, didn't think too much about why it was at such a great price because when I asked her she had told me she was having money problems. I told her to wait on it a day and I would get back with her. After speaking with my parents about it and they wondered how the google checkout worked with craigslist, I googled it to see how it worked and this was one of the pages that came up. I knew that the car was too good to be true. Made me hopeful to get a decent car for a great price. Even though I saw these posts I was hopeful that it was still legit but after reading all of these, my emails were almost exactly the same. Almost word for word with a little bit of information change. I went on a site searching for the VIN number, a picture popped up with the same exact car, same information, but what the person selling the car didn't think to check was that the car was a totally different color from the pictures that they had sent me in the photobucket account. I decided that I wanted to do a background check on who exactly I was speaking with, I searched for the "woman's" name (if it really is a woman) and couldn't find anything about her. The name is Linda Madsen with the email (linda.mad11@hotmail.com). Since I couldn't find anything about her over the internet I went ahead and found the IP address to search where the emails had been coming from. In this case, 'Linda' had said she was an oceanographer and that she was out at sea and needed to get rid of the car this week. When I found where the emails had originated, they were coming from somewhere in Washington state. But I don't know what else to do from here, so I thought that you could help me out!

We almost fell for this scam only the guy was selling a toy hauler and claiming that he was being shipped out. Thanks to our loan officer being hesitant and looking to the google checkout website, which wasn't easy by the way, and have a fraud website notifiy us that something was wrong we avoided the situation. If it sounds to good to be be true it usually is :( I hope these people get caught.

For Martysgirl228, I received this email about a vehicle and here is the email address also. The vin number is 3GNEK12T34G177325 Please take a few moments and read my email carefully, I know it is long, but I will explain all the details about the truck and the transaction. At the moment I'm stationed in Athens, Greece, making final preparations before deploying to Afghanistan. The truck is already at our Military Logistic Department in Fort Lewis, Washington Army base, crated and ready to go. The Logistic Department will deliver the truck to your home. The shipping is free for you. Since the truck is in a military base, with no access you can not go there and take it, only the Logistic Department can deliver it, because it is in their custody. Shipping will take 3-4 business days to the destination. All documents you need for ownership, manuals and bill of sale will be provided along with the truck. For the payment I would like to use Google Checkout as a third party. They will keep your money into a protection account until you get the truck and will release it to me after inspection period is over and you agree to keep it. So, this is not a blind transaction, you can see the truck before committing to buy and to eliminate any concerns you will have 10 days to inspect it. If you decide not to keep it Google Checkout will refund you the money, no questions asked, and shipping back will be my concern. But I assure you won't be the case. I think this is more than fair for both of us. If you wish to proceed with the purchase, please provide me your full name, address (street,city,zip,state) and phone # so I can initiate the deal through Google Checkout. They will contact you soon with all the details you need about the payment and shipping. PLEASE NOTE! If the truck is not how I've described it, you have the unequivocal right to refuse acceptance of the truck (return postage on my expense) and you are entitled to a full and complete refund of the truck's purchase price. It will be insured during transportation and will be delivered in front of your door. Again I want to point out that because I am going to Afghanistan. this sale is my top priority and I am looking after a fast transaction, with no delays. That is why I decided to lower the price, to avoid wasting time with negotiations and find a buyer as soon as possible. Hope to do business with you soon! allencarter86@gmail.com Says his name is SSgt Allen Carter I searched for the VIN on the internet and the car came up for sale in another state by a different seller. THanks.

Hi there, I'm writing you regarding my 2003 Nissan Murano SL(3.5L V6 with automatic transmission). The car is still for sale and is in excellent condition as you can see from the pictures,no accidents, no major scratches or any kind of damage,never abused and it has a clear title. The car has 78,000 miles on it. If you are interested in buying it, the price is $3,000 and this is with shipping costs to your location included. I sell the car at this price because I cannot enjoy it due to my job(I am Lt.Colonel in US Marine Corps)and I don't have any person in my family to use it! It was my ex-husband dream car but he died 2 years ago,so I want another person to really enjoy it! All documents, including owner's manual, clear title and a bill of sale on your name will be provided along with the car. Also about payment and shipping I will use only Google Checkout so we can both be protected. I am looking forward to hear from you. Thank you, Lt.Col Carla Fletcher this is the email hope it helps you, I was almost scammed today, but managed to get my money back :)

After doing some on line research I’m pretty sure the craiglist listing -2006 Thor Dutchmen 29Q-GS Travel Trailer - $4999 is a scam... owner: Melanie S. Tripity (email: sevenstarsleft7@gmail.com) I goggled this name and looked at what people have posted and the wording From: Jennifer Patton below wrote is pretty similar to what Melanie emailed me. So if anyone reads this and is looking for a travel trailer you might want to think twice. I did goggle Melanie’s name and there was a person that received an email from this person but she indicated the trailer was in NY but the email to me listed it in totally different state….

Wow - I'm glad I read this - I am e-mailing currently with a JS - email address ocirne@live.com regaring buying a classic Corvette - is there any way you can tell if he is legit - he is currently opening a Google checkout case so I can see the inspection report on the car. Any help you can give would be appreciated. It's one of those deals I got real excited about, but it might be too good to be true. How can I confirm that google checkout will be holding my money? Do you have a valid internet address for them? I am asuming there is such a service but the people in your forum are abusing it. thanks

I noticed an Impala SS on cars.com that stated the vehicle was 44mi. away from my state. I then contacted the owner and asked him when I could see the car. He then came up with some bullshit story he was in the military in Grand Forks North Dakota and would not be home for 4 weeks. Okay no problem I'll wait. He then sends me an email telling me he had the vehicle shipped via Airforce to his location in ND. Yeah Okay. He then advised me to send the funds for the vehicle to Google Checkout and he will then arrange to have the vehicle sent to me. If I don't like the vehicle he will accept the cost of shipping it back. Yeah okay. If I like the vehicle and accept it he will then draw the funds from Google Checkout. Being a police officer I believed him up until he claimed to have shipped the vehicle to North Dakota where he said he was going to be for only 4 weeks in his first email. Then I googled Google checkout and this auto scam came about. Do not buy a vehicle unless you see the vehicle in person. This is a scam.

Is this still an active thread? I just "bought a car through Craig's List and Google Checkout. It of course seemed too good to be true. I thought I checked it out thoroughly, but became suspicious when they asked for an additional $1700 for shipping insurance. I went back to the original emails and saw something I missed the first time. "wallet" in google wallet was spelled " walet." I missed that the first time. The add was for a Lexus RX 300, posted by . The "google walet" requested the $$ be sent to an "authorized google receiver, Austin Loche, in Canton Ohio via Western Union. It could of been worse and I doubt I see the money again, but wanted to help get the word out.

Hi everyone! I was on Craigslist and found a listing for a Honda Civic. Inquired about it and then got this email! I actually Googled the email (nhasht40@gmail.com) prior to contacting the "seller" and came across their email address on this site as well. Obviously it is the same scam that has been going around. I replied back! Gave them a little piece of my mind : You should be ashamed of yourself! What a lame and crappy story! I hope God forgives you for being so cruel by trying to scam ppl out of money. I am a single mom who works very hard for her money and for some IDIOT like you to come along and try to play with my emotions with some STUPID story is sad. Remember, what goes around comes around. You do this long enough you'll get your punishment...from GOD...you are a disgusting person. I'll be posting this email on the scammers site...so hurry up and create another! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- FROM: Patricia Mark nhasht40@gmail.com Monday, August 27, 2012 2:22 PM Hi, The car is in perfect condition, no electric problems, no accidents/liens/loans. No scratches, never been repainted. I have all the car manuals, title,documents. I'm selling this car because my child of only 25 died 4 months ago in a car accident,a drunk driver hit him and his fiance. He was with his fiance's car coming to our home at his little brother birthday of 14 years old. The car belonged to my son and it brings me bad memories and that's the reason I want to sell it. The final price is $2,000. Me and my husband travel a lot with our business and we want to make this deal through eBay's Buyer Protection Program. I just need your full name,full shipping address, home/cell # so I can open a case.(with no further obligation or fees). eBay will contact you with all the Transaction/shipping details you will need.We will take care of the shipping so don't worry. We hope to hear soon from you. P.S. Let me know if you want more photos Thank you for your interest! Patricia and Robert Mark

I was in process of purchasing vehicle from craigslist from a person portraing himself as a senior medic sgt. 1 class preparing to return to afghanistan sep 10 via 146th medic batallion pics sent me show an absolute beautiful vehicle in pristine condition and all the bells and whistles for a very inexpensive price but it sounded too fishy and wanted to research further and ended up here and am glad I did.It seems that these scammers favor the gmail addresses I guess I better put an end to this phony sale hopefully he'll get caught. he utilizes the name of sam carroll sgt 1st class 146th medic batallion

He had me set up a google checkout account and then I later find out he says I need to cover the shipping costs and give a verification code after it is sent before they will release the so called money that he paid. This man never once asked me any questions about the machine i was selling which is y I was worried about this from the start. This is the email he used anthcrooks312@gmail.com should have known look at the last name

Here is the BS that I JUST got Elizabeth Parker... Hello again, Let me explain you something please. The reason I chose to sell my van through a 3rd party like Google Checkout in this situation, is because I just can't meet any potential buyer as I am in a military base doing my final stage of trainings before getting deployed. At the moment I'm stationed in Fort Knox, Kentucky making final preparations before deploying to Afghanistan with the U.S. Convoy. The van is already at our Military Logistic Department from U.S. Army base near Fort Knox, Kentucky, crated and ready to go. The Logistic Department will deliver the van to your home. The shipping is included in price. On the other hand, as I work in the military I can deliver it for free. The Logistic Department will deliver it for me. That is why I decided to offer you 7 days time inspect period. If something won’t be like you expected to be you can return it without any expense. It will come with all the paper work. The payment will be released after you get to test and inspect the van for 7 days. If you're interested to conclude this purchase in a timely manner email me your Complete Name and Shipping Address to open a case with Google Checkout they will contact you to explain the entire procedure. I'll start the official procedure, and Google Checkout will contact you about this. You'll receive important guidelines + instructions from them in the next 24 hours. Thanks and take care.

this is the email i got from "brian anderson" Hi, Thank you for contacting me regarding my 03 Nissan Altima . 56,8175 miles on the clock, like new condition, no scratches, no dents, accident-free, clear title. There are no lien or loan on the car and I'm the registered owner with the title in hand. You will receive all the documents, including the title signed over to your name. As you probably noticed, the price is rather low: $1,900. Unfortunately I have a personal problem and I need the money. The car is located in Deerfield Beach, FL in my garage. My brother is a DAS employee and can deliver the car anywhere in the US. The shipping is already paid for. You will have the car in front of your house in 2 days. You will also have 5 days to inspect the vehicle. If, by any reason, the car is not as described, or if you find any problems with it, I will pay for the returning fees. I'm sure it won't be the case because it's a state of art vehicle inside and out. Please let me know if you want to reserve the car for you. this is his email briander2722@gmail.com> its such a scam!

I am a 42 female that thought I was semi-intelligient but apparently not. I was on craigslist also and saw this 2000 Nissan Maxima for $1793 with no scratches, dings or dents. I thought this is a dream come true. I knew I couldn't afford alot and I had to ask my parents to borrow the money. They asked me if I checked it out and I did or so I thought I had. I read what Google Checkout stated in their agreement and thought it was all legite. I am close to tears right now and so frustrated for being so stupid. I don't have a lot of money like so many others and I count on each dollar I make. I rob Peter to pay Paul every pay check so this is just sickening to me. How could I be so stupid.

I will need your full name , delivery address and a phone number to start the transaction, and have Google contact you regarding the payment . Regards, Richard

Here is a reply I got when ask to call me back. This ad was on Florida craigslist today about a 2007 HD Her name and emails is Debra Wagner debrasw43@gmail.com debrasw43@gmail.com My 2007 Harley Davidson FLHRC Road King Classic is in great shape.It was always garaged and never been damaged. It has no scratches, dents or something like that. No mechanical or electrical problems, no accidents. Clean title in hand,first owner. It does not need anything additional to function, has only 12,065 miles.I'm selling it at this price because it was the bike of my son who passed away 2 months ago and I can't stand to see it anymore...My last price is $2,320. Hi , I'm out of the country with my work and I don't have a phone here since I'm in the Atlantic Ocean.This is why I choose Google Checkout because I can't take care of the transaction myself .So, if you are really interested, email me your full name and shipping address in order for Google Checkout to start the transaction with you. Thank you Everybody STAY far far away

One thing you might want to consider as a common denominator in all or most all of these scams. The email address....most of the time the address is XXXOOO @ gmail. Seems that g-mail stands for "gotcha". Just an observation. Also, most of the time, the grammar or dictation is broken or very poor.

I just found out I got scammed for 2,125.00 off of google's buyer protection. I should have been smart but I needed a new vehicle so bad that I was careless. I got the same story as most of the others that it was a military guy whose medical team was being deployed overseas. The email he had was mattwils5@gmail.com. he went by the name matt williams. Name: Matt Williams Address: 5999 W Airport Dr North Canton ,OH 44720 United StatesThe person i moneygram'd to was * Receiver's Name:John M. Conway* Address: 1132 NE Lindsay ave.* City:Lees Summit* State:Missouri (MO)* Zip Code:64086* Country:United States I know there is nothing I can do now but i would feel better if this person suffers for what he is putting people through. I am a college student who struggles to even pay my bills and saved this money up for a long time to only be left with no money and a vehicle that is dieing on me everyday. Thank you for getting the word out on these animals.

Has anyone hear of this one? Someone by the name of Maj. Mary Hook is trying to sell a 2008 Nissan Altima on Craigslist for $2,000 because she is being deployed and needs to sell it fast. That the shipping will be free for you and that they want to use ebay motors as a thirth party. Research her email and saw that many complaints have been filed against this person and that this person with the same email is saying they are selling the same car for the same reasons in different states on craigslist. And one of the people that filed a complaint against this person on www. scambook.com had almost the same email sent to them as I did almost word for word. This is the email I got: Hi, This 2008 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL,2.5L I4 FI DOHC 16V, FRONT WHEEL DRIVE,VIN: 1N4AL21E28C210343, runs and drives excellent. It has been extremely well maintained with a full service history and 83,569 miles! Transmission is Automatic shifts smoothly. It has no leaks or drips and does not smoke at all, slightly used in 100% working and looking conditions with a clear title free of encumbrances and liens. I bought it when i was serving in Detroit Arsenal , MI.The car will be delivered from Michigan , US and the shipping is free for you ! I have dropped my price to $2,000 (purchase price) since this is an Urgent Sale! and I need to sell it before October 10, when I will be deployed in Afghanistan with my platoon replacing the troops scheduled to come home. If you're interested to conclude this purchase in a timely manner email me your: Full Name and Shipping address, to open a case with eBay. They will contact you to explain the entire procedure. The financial part will be managed by eBay, which means that you will have a 10 days inspection period before committing to buy the car. In this way both, buyer and seller are 100% covered during the steps of this transaction. Hope to hear from you soon! Maj. Mary Hook PS : More photos here : http://www.myalbum.com/Album=CCCTTY6D Carfax link : http://www.carfax.com/cfm/FSBO.cfm?report=8F7BC02E1F31C8CCD30442729650BCB8 This person is being looked for by the FBI.

same person, different vehicle!!! this jackass tried to scam my son!!! thank GOD ALMIGHTY that my son entrusts me with valuable opinions! When we first saw it, i thought wow! that seems too good to be true! and then after the second replied e-mail from this jerk, i knew it was. I googled the "google checkout" and low and behold, this page was right there! i read this with a surge of emotions! thank you ALL for posting here so we could validate whether or not this was for real!!! i will now paste what we were told so you too, can be on the lookout for this dumbass!!! first one: Hey, The truck it is in perfect condition, there's not a scratch or any dents on it. Everything from engine to tires is mint condition. I have a clear title with no liens or loans.I'm selling it so low due the fact that my medical team will deploy back to Afghanistan on October 5th for a 1 year contract and I won't let it go to waste in my backyard, therefore I need a fast and reliable buyer. A few words about the truck: 1994 Nissan Pickup 4x4 King Cab SE ,84k miles,automatic,3.0 V6 engine,4x4 price:1530$,more pictures available at: http://s1241.photobucket.com/albums/gg516/myrednissan/ If you are interested email me back more info upon request Have a great day, Ronald Walkersecond one: I want to thank you for your interest.As I said in my first email my medical team will deploy back to Afghanistan we have limited time so please work with me.Right now I'm in a military base of Nevada Army National Guard in Reno,NV the vehicle is here with me. I am only allowed to check my email. We have to stick to e-mail for now. Hope you can understand.The delivery process will be managed by me. I think I can have it there at your home address within 3-5 working days. It will come with a clear title and reg. I am a member of the Google Checkout protection program and using this service you will get a 5 days testing period after delivery. During that 5 days testing period I will not be getting any money. I need to know if you are interested so I can ask Google to send you the details on this deal. If interested please include in your next email your contact info for Google (full name, shipping address and phone number), so we can get things started asap.I hope to hear soon from you. what gave it away for me was the fact of the NATIONAL GUARD being deployed to afganistan---hello!!! dumbass...if you are reading this...the NATIONAL GUARD is what it says it is!!!! the NATIONAL GUARD--it is to protect the USA on the USA soil!!!!!!! so to the guy that can hack this crap! please get this mug!!!!! for the rest of you, please be careful!!!!

The car is in perfect condition, with no need for additional repairs, no scratches, dings, special marks whatsoever, never been involved in any accidents. The interior looks great (NO SMOKING). It has 74,800 miles, automatic transmission,VIN# JN1DA31D32T405260, with an 6 Cylinder 3.5 Liter engine and all the extras included. It has a clear title with no loans or liens on it. The price was reduced at $1,925 (including shipping and handling costs) as I need to sell the car before the 15th of October when I will be leaving with my medical team back to Afghanistan, so I don't want it getting old in my backyard.

This is an email address trying to get money from me through Google Checkout for a VW Touareg: evelyng195@gmail.com This is the first email sent: "Hi, I received your message regarding my car 2006 Volkswagen Touareg 2.5TDI . Regarding the car, it is in perfect condition, no accidents, no damage, scratches or dents. HPI clear, the car is fully paid. It is registered to United Kingdom .REG: RJ56 SFK It also has 91,000 miles, it drives like new, garage kept and babied. The price i am looking for is 2,700£. Regarding the sale, i am selling it because i just got divorced and i had to move back in Spain with work, i already bought another car here as i was unable to register the Volkswagen here since the fees are to high being a UK model and specs. If you are interested in purchasing i want to use a third party for our protection in this case Google Checkout Using theyr services it allows you as the buyer to receive the car first and also give you an inspection period of 7 days in wich you can decline the sale if you are not satisfied. I doubt that since the car is in perfect condition. If you want to move forward with the sale and have the payment email me your entire name, shipping address and also your phone number , so i can forward all the details to Google Checkout and they will get in touch with you with all the details regarding the transaction and payment info and also prepare things for shipping on my part. Looking forward to hearing from you soon, Evelyn." And now the second and last email: "Hi, I just forwarded all the info to Google Checkout, they should contact you via emai now with all the details and payment info. Make sure to check your spam or junk folder also since i receive my messages there sometimes. Keep me updated and let me know when they contact you so i can have everything prepared on my side. Looking forward to close this transaction with you, Evelyn" I went along with their offer so I can obtain more info.

adams.phillip8@gmail.com is the email, here is the message I got back about an ad i was inquiring about for a truck: As I've told you, at this moment I am 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 vehicle way below market value, is because I would like to help ease the burden of my sisters medical expenses, which she has acquired due to a serious illness. The shipping will take 3 to 5 days and it’s not a problem because I will have the car shipped by an Air Force cargo plane so there won't be any additional shipping costs. Also I will arrange for a truck to transport the vehicle to your home address. You will receive it along with all the documents including title, bill of sale, 2 set of keys, full service records and more. Because it is a large transaction, we will complete the deal only using an authorized third part like Google Checkout because I already prearranged the whole process with them. The vehicle is located in their warehouse in Anchorage (sealed and ready for delivery). The money must be sent first to an Google Checkout agent and will be kept safe until the buyer receives and inspects the vehicle. I will offer a 5-day period to inspect the car from the moment you receive it (and the option to accept or reject the vehicle on my expense), before I'll have your money. I think this is more than fair for both of us. If you are still interested just send me your full name and shipping address. I will forward your info to Google Checkout and they will notify you about our deal. They will let you know what you have to do for the payment. Like this you'll be able to talk directly with them and ask all you want to know. Thank you

I am pretty sure we almost got scammed today. It is through a Brenda Ramirez in the military. Selling a camper on Craigslist for dirt cheap. My husband looked into the details they gave us about the camper and nothing matched up. It was claiming that the camper was in Bethesda MD at a military base as she was being deployed soon. It said that if we gave her our info then Ebay would contact us about the transaction. It also claimed that the military would deliver the camper to us and we had 7 days to decide if we will purchase it. Feeling pretty dumb to have not figured it out sooner, just lucky we didn't get scammed! Anyone else dealt with Nurse Seargent Brenda Ramirez?

Can you help me verify this guy....im reading alot of ppl are getting this email...currently talking to the guy... SGT Robert P Barnes robert.p.barnes@comcast.net Thank you for your interest in my 2006 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE Automatic, you have photos attached to this email. The general condition of my car is excellent, very well maintained, no damages and no mechanical problems, the engine runs and sounds awesome, with no cosmetic complaints. The alloys are all presentable and original, all tires are in good condition with plenty life remaining. Automatic transmission never had a problem, clean carpets, seats, roof. The oil was changed every 4k miles, no electrical issues. The title is clear, registered under my name, no lien or loan. Slightly used, the car has only 72,400 miles, I bought it in November 2006 when I was serving in the U.S. Army base near Hernando, FL. Few weeks ago someone saw the advert on craigslist and told me he is all interested in buying it. I asked him if he has the available amount of cash to buy the car and to prove it, he showed me his bank statement. So no problem there, I went to Hernando to make the transaction, but when I arrived there, called him over the phone for 2 whole days and finally, on third day he answered, telling me he spent the money to buy another car. Didn't even bothered to come and see the car, or to call me first. I lost 5 days in vain and money on the plane ticket from England to Hernando. The price was reduced to $2,900 as I need to sell the car before November 14th when I will leave with my platoon in a mission outside US, I will be deployed to an US Forces Japan base for an entire year. Now I am in a military base in England (United Kingdom) where I do a special training getting ready to be deployed. I am a serious person and I expect the same thing from you, unlike this guy i told you about, that put me on roads for nothing. His loss anyway because my car is a great deal. I want to deal with a serious buyer with the available cash. It would be no problem for me if you just tell me that you don't want or can't buy the car. The car is still in Hernando, FL and in case it gets sold I will take care of delivery at no cost for you using a delivery service made only for US Army members because I can't come from England to Hernando again to close the deal. Thank You! SGT Robert P Barnes MIL USA TRADOC One team, one fight

Hello, This 1996 Ford Bronco Eddie Bauer has been extremely well maintained and it's still for sale. The 5.8L V8 engine sounds like brand new, start fast and there are no leaks, ticks or noises whatsoever coming from the motor and he automatic transmission shifts as it should. This Eddie Bauer comes loaded with all luxury options and they all work perfectly. This Bronco is even equipped with the rare factory CD player. The AC is ICE COLD and the truck drives smooth and quiet. This Bronco run & drive like a dream, has 65,785 miles and the clear title is free of liens. I have dropped my price to $2,860 (purchase price) because this is an Urgent Sale. I need to sell it before November 3rd when I will be deployed to Afghanistan with my platoon replacing the troops scheduled to come home. First of all, let me know please where are you located. I also need to know if you require a loan or the funds are already available. (I hope you don't mind me asking this, but a loan would take time, which is my main problem right now). I have already many emails and I hope you understand that I have to sort them out. I will take in consideration only those buyers who are really interest in buying my truck and have the funds available. I really don't want to waste my time with endless discussions. The financial part will be managed by Google Checkout, which means that you will have a 5 days inspection period before committing to buy the truck. In this way both, buyer and seller are 100% covered during the steps of this transaction. If you're interested in concluding this purchase in a timely manner ( before November 3rd ) just email me back and I would be glad to explain you how the entire process works... Hope to hear from you soon, S. Sgt. Norah Lewin

This was almost identical to mine.. > Hello,> Thank you for being interested in buying my 2007 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL, 4 Cylinder Engine, Automatic transmission, white color, VIN # 1N4AL21EX7C200755. It has 65,900 miles, beautiful condition in and out, zero dings/dents, no accident, non-smoker vehicle. > The vehicle is registered on my name and the title is clear (no lien). It comes with all the documents needed for registration, title and the keys. The vehicle is located in Lake Bluff, IL and will be shipped from there. The price that I am asking for the vehicle is $1,800. I have recently moved to Portugal with my job and my family. I was hoping to take the vehicle here but when I found out how much shipping and registration would be I’ve changed my mind. I want to sell it in US because is located and still registered there. > I want to take this opportunity to assure you that this deal is 100% legitimate, the financial part of this deal will be manage by a third party. So if you decide to buy my vehicle or need further information please get back to me as soon as possible. > Thank you and have a great day, and then As I already said in my first email the vehicle is currently located in Illinois at the shipping company, ready to go anywhere in the United States. The transaction will be managed by Google Checkout; I'm affiliated to their program and since they offer the highest rate of safety and reliability during online transactions I'm going to sell the vehicle using their service. They will act as a neutral party in this transaction. You will send the money to Google Checkout and as soon as the payment is confirmed they will notify me to proceed with the shipping. I will ship the vehicle, you will receive it and will have 5 days for inspection. Shipping costs are included in the vehicle's price. During all this time Google Checkout will hold the money. If you are satisfied with the vehicle and decide to keep it you inform Google Checkout about this and they will transfer the money to me. If the vehicle is not as advertised and decide not to keep it Google Checkout will refund you the money, no questions asked, and shipping back the vehicle will be my concern. If you agree with these terms and you have the money ready, send me your full name and the address where you want the vehicle to be delivered and I will initiate the transaction through Google Checkout. Then 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. Thank you, Melissa

He wanted me to send the money to Google Checkout, he would ship truck ($1535 for a $8000 valued truck!) from Reno, NV at Nevada Army National Guard. Appeared to be interested in my well-being while explaining how Google Checkout "acts as a neutral third party. Google Checkout will keep the money until you inspect/drive the vehicel. This is how the Google Checkout works.." Knew it was scam from the get-go. NOBODY sells a vehicle to take a big loss on it, for any reason. Be warned, this guy emailed me back several times. Found his ad on Craigslist in South Bend, IN classifieds! Reported his ad as spam to them immediately. Thank you for sharing this information!!

It has been well cared for and needs nothing.I have dropped my price to $2,165 (purchase price) since this is an Urgent Sale! I need to sell it before 20th of November when I will be deployed to a US Forces Japan ( http://www.usfj.mil ) base for an entire year. I decided that the financial part will be managed by eBay, which means you will have a 7 days inspection period before committing to buy the trailer. This way both of us will be 100% covered during transaction.If you're interested to proceed email me your Complete Name and Shipping Address to open a case.They will contact you to explain the entire procedure.

And that she is located in Fla and it's 2,700 for the rhino with shipping included to Texas. And that if I email her my name and address she will send it into google checkout to proceed with the payment. I have not responded back to her since she said that. But she still uses the email tiffanigar@gmail.com

She is trying to sell this vechicle under the pretense that she got it from a divorce settlement and she bought a new home and is behind in payments. She wants to conduct the transaction through Ebay services. I own a Jeep Wrangler and this price threw up all kinds of red flags. She goes by the name of Karen Daniels via rgrs.lsa@gmail.com

I had two different scammers try this but wasn't successful since I wouldn't buy sight unseen. I asked why was it on Craigslist (travel trailer) in Houston if it was in another state. Craigslist is for local only so you can SEE what your getting.They used a military name but come on, behind a email can be ANYBODY. This person even said their Dad died and the travel trailer was his. "Constance Geanes" bblangbb@gmail.com was one and martha rossi martha.rossi@comcast.net .

One of the main ways to spot if they are fake is that they use @gmail.com they can use 1a to 10ddffsfdfdbbdff@gmail.com and have hundreds of accounts. None of them are traceable unless you have lots of money and resources. So speaking to the Fraud Office, this is becoming quite prevalent and the auctions sites are quite bad but the worse one in the UK is apparently Gum Tree.

raymondsanders120@gmail.com is a scammer! Do NOT buy a car through him! Check out this suspicious email: "Is me Raymond again please take a few moments and read my email carefully.The car is in Reno,NV at Nevada Army National Guard with me.Being in the army has some advantages and one of them is the fact that I can ship it very cheap. I will pay for the shipping charges.I would like to handle the sale using eBay for our own protection as they act as a neutral third part. eBay will keep the money until you inspect/drive the vehicle.This is how the eBay works:I will contact eBay and give all the info about this deal. They will email us the forms by email - about the buyer's protection policy, delivery, and payment.You will send the payment to eBay and they will notify me to ship the vehicle to your location.The shipping will take 5 days.After you will inspect/drive the vehicle and decide to keep it, eBay will forward me the funds and the deal is done.You have 5 days to test it from the day you receive it. If by any chance you won't be satisfied with it you will be fully refunded and I will have the shipping company come to pick it up and I have to pay the shipping back. If you wish to purchase it please provide me your full name, address and a phone # so I can initiate the deal through eBay." I googled his email and saw people already posting about him. Thanks for sharing everyone!

Matt

11/21/2012 11:13 pm

They tried to scam me too! He claimed he was trying to sell a 2002 Ford Explorer but was in Reno even though he was making posts in MN. He wanted to sell it through ebay. It didn't sound right at all and that's what I just told him in an e-mail. I then googled his email and saw your post. Thanks for sharing! It helps other people out for for sure!

kenstegan@gmail.com this guy wanted $21,000 for a 2011 toyota sienna, it all seemed great until he said the car was located in Quebec and I live in Toronto so I was like wtf.....but anyways same story basically 1st email: Hello, The VAN you just saw it's a 2011 Toyota Sienna. I need to tell you that the VAN is in excellent condition, never raced or abused, no accidents and no smoke inside, no liens or loans, it was very well maintained. The VAN is certified, e-tested and safetied, runs like new and all services are up to date. I decided to lower the price ($21,000), to avoid wasting time with negotiations and find a buyer ASAP. You will inspect the VAN before paying for it! Please forward any questions about the VAN or the transaction and I'll reply in a timely fashion! 2nd email: Hello again , I don't have a car proof report right now. The van is already at google's shipping center from Morin Heights QC and from there it will be shipped to my buyer's address, it will take no more than 3 days. I have registered the van with Google's Vehicle Protection Program and they work only with das auto shippers, so a local pick-up is not an option.This transaction is covered by google's purchase protection program up to $25,000 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 van will be my concern. I strongly assure you it will not be the case for a refund. I have used the Google Vehicle Purchase Protection in the past and all my transaction ended succesfully. You pay to google and they will transfer the funds to me only after you get the van . Shipping will be door to door, to your home address, somebody must be home when the van arrive.If all is good with the van , 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. Please let me know if some of the terms don't fit you or if you have other questions. I'm a serious seller and I prefer to deal with a serious buyer. If you wish to proceed with the purchase, please provide me your full name and shipping address so I can initiate the deal through google right away.

I live in Sac, CA and want to buy a car on Craig's list. The car is worth 14,000, but she wants to sell it for $4900, but it's in NE at a shipping yard ready to go as soon as she gets my payment! The email is lori21huntley@hotmail.com and here is the pitch :Hey there, My name is Lorie, happy to see you are interested in my 2008 Toyota RAV4 Sport. Let me give you a few details about it. The SUV is in very good shape, no known mechanical issues, without scratches or dents, and it has never been involved in any kind of accidents. The mileage is 39,041, automatic transmission, with an 2.4L engine, 4WD, black exterior and charcoal interior. I legally own a clear title, free of any liens or loans, under my name. I wanted sell it at its Blue Book value but without any luck so I changed up my mind and reduced the price at $3.900. I got divorced recently this is how I got the SUV and I am trying to sell it because I already have my own SUV and I don't have what to do with a second one. For questions just e-mail me. Sincerely, Lorie

The car is located in Auburn CA at the shipping company ready for shipping.The transaction will be made trough Google Checkout because they can protect both of us and they also offer 10 days inspection period. You will have 10 days so you can inspect the car. Once you have inspected the car and decided to keep it, you will confirm your decision to Google Checkout and only then they will re-route the money in to my account, but if by any reason, you won't be satisfied with the car you can return it back on my expense for a full refund of your money. Google Checkout will hold the funds until you receive the car with all the papers work.In this way, you will be able to inspect the vehicle before committing to buy it.I will take care of the shipping, don't worry. You will receive the car with all the necessary papers (clear title, bill of sale, user’s manual, insurance etc). Just get back with your full name and full shipping address and I will get everything started as soon as possible, then Google Checkout will contact you with further instructions. Thanks a lot! I told emily baker I would only purchase a vehicle after I test drove it. From: Emily Baker

I almost got scammed by this woman going by the name of Nancy Velasquez, nancy09v@hotmail.com. She posted an ad on craigslist for a 2007 Toyota Tundra SR5 listed for $2850.00 sent me pics and everything. Said she was a single woman who works as a dealer on a casino cruise ship so she had no need for it and it belonged to her ex husband who died 2 years ago. Also said she couldn't use the phone because they had strict rules about it while on the ship , but i find it funny how its no problem to use the internet. Gave me the whole spill about how she was on the ship and the truck was at the shipping company in Mississippi waiting to be shipped, after my funds were confirmed through Google checkout. I didn't lose any money and avoided the scam because it just sounded to good to be true. There were to many red flags and a lot just didn't make sense. here is what she wrote: I'm writing you regarding my 2007 Toyota Tundra SR5. The truck is in perfect condition, no scratches or any damages also never been involved into an accident, never abused and it has a clear title, you will love this truck... The truck has 57,611 miles on it. If you are interested in buying it, the price is $2,850.00 and this is with shipping costs to your location included. I sell the truck at this price because I can't enjoy it due to my job( I work as a casino dealer on a cruise ship), I'm a single woman and I have nobody close who can use it. This truck was used by my ex husband who died two years ago. All documents, including owner's manual, clear title and a bill of sale on your name will be provided along with the truck. Also about payment and shipping I will use only Google Checkout so we can both be protected. I look forward to hear from you. Thank you, Nancy Velasquez I replied: You'll have to forgive me for my doubts but I seriously have concerns about this. Don't get me wrong, I really want this, I just don't want this to be some kinda scam. You have been more than cooperative and always replied quickly. Its just hard to believe such a good deal with such a awesome truck. She wrote: As soon as I receive the payment confirmation from Google Checkout I will start the shipping process. I sell the truck at this price because I work on a cruise ship and I am gone most all the time. I don't want to get rich by selling the truck. Believe me that the money doesn't matter for me, but even so, I couldn't sell it for free!!! I will not lose any money in this deal... You think that I don't know that I can sell the truck for a better price? This price is something symbolical. I never fooled someone in any way. I won't risk my career, my freedom and my future for anything in the world! You can count on that! What a load of BS! I really hope he/she or whoever this person is gets caught and dealt with. What goes around, comes around! That, you can count on!!!

My husband and I saw an advertisement on Craigslist for a Nissan Altima, I emailed her and this was her response. Her email address is vanesa.thomas@msn.com Vanesa ThomasFeb 2 (2 days ago) to me Hello, Sorry for my late answer but I was in the hospital during last days and I was unable to read my e-mail.I'm selling this beautiful 2005 Nissan Altima because my daughter is in hospital, is very sick and I need money for treatment. I'm under enormous time pressure cause I need to sell it fast, before 15th of February that being the reason for selling it so low.My husband and I divorced last month, after the divorce I was awarded the car. It is in immaculate condition, non-smoker, meticulously maintained and hasn't been involved in any accident... Clear title. The total price is $1,920 including delivery and handling to your address. Because i'm very busy with my daughter the transaction will be managed by Google Checkout for our own protection as they act as a neutral third part. Google Checkout policy is safe & advantageous for both of us: they will keep the money until you inspect/test the car (you have 10 days for inspection) and in the mean time, offers me the guarantee that you have the amount needed to buy it and you will pay it once you received and accepted it. If the car is not in same condition as I said you will ship it back on my expense and Google Checkout will send you a full refund. But I assure you won't be the case. Get back to me and let me know what you decide. Thank you for your time and interest. Details: VIN: 1N4AL11DX5C296126 Mileage:71,589 Here is a link to the car's photo gallery: http://s1337.beta.photobucket.com/user/rbecca253/library/2005%20Nissan%20Altima%20SL

Hi again, Right now I'm 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 so we have to stick to e-mail for now. Hope you can understand. Like I already said, the delivery process will be managed by me (won't be any additional shipping costs) and will take no more than 3-5 working days. You will receive it along with all the documents including title, bill of sale, 2 set of keys, full service records and more. I am a member of the Google Checkout buyer protection program and using this service you will get a 5 days testing period after delivery (and the option to accept or reject the vehicle on my expense).The money must be sent first to an Google Checkout Attorney and will be kept safe until you receive and inspect the vehicle. During that 5 days testing period I will not be getting any money. You have to send first to the Google Checkout Attorney the deposit of $1,000, the balance being paid once you receive and inspect the vehicle. I think this is more than fair for both of us. If you are still interested and you have the funds just send me your FULL NAME and the SHIPPING ADDRESS. I will forward your info to Google Checkout and they will notify you about our deal. They will let you know what you have to do for the payment. Like this you'll be able to talk directly with them and ask all you want to know. Best Regards!!! Staff Sgt. Roger Roscoe.

Oh my goodness...was martha rossi trying to sell the 2009 Keystone Outback 27L? We are looking for a travel trailer and found this one being sold by her for $5750 and she gave us the same story about her dad dying and it was being stored in her garage in Wisconsin. She has the trailer listed on numorous Craigslist city sites as well as other sites. I had a feeling it was too good to be true, so I started investigating. I image searched the photos she sent me and that led me to all the other sites she has it listed under. And then I did a name search and searched both email addresses she gave me and that led me here! So glad I looked further into it!!

rjulie81@gmail.com tried to sell me a 2004 Ford F150 for $1977..total cost with shipping and clear title $1950. I saw the ad via Craigs List. She wanted to complete the transaction using Google check out before Feb 16th..said the truck was located in Montgomery, AL and it is now listed on Craigs list under Houston, TX. She said the truck was awarded to her after a divorce and she needed the money to pay for her daughter's medical treatments. She said she has to stay at the hospital with her daughter so she has no time to sell the truck so she elected to use Google Checkout as a neutral third party to help her sell the truck. I can inspect and test drive the truck for 10days and if I am not satisfied, Google will refund my money and the truck will be shipped back to her at her expense. I am glad I did research before sending her any money!

I emailed two of them this morning after I received the same email as your daughter and decided to google the email address. If you google the phone number in the ad you'll find at least two more places with the ad still working for them 720-213-6186

She is going to be "deployed" monday February 25 and needed a quick sale. I grew up a military brat and I "trusted" this B!#@%. Thank God my sister dug a little further into it for me. I am discusted that these criminals are using our military and heavy hearts for the deployed to scam us. She will be recieving a very nasty email from me. As for all of the shitheads that are trying to scam honest people that work hard for their money...they will be "deployed" straight to HELL! The scary thing is..this person now has my home address that I gave her for a "shipping address"

I think I am being scammed as well from a lady named Nancy Velasquez for a 2005 Nissan Altima being sold for $1800. I found it on spread my ad and there was only one generic exterior picture but it was taken in front of a house so I thought it was legit. I emailed and asked for more pictures and why it was so cheap she completely ignored my picture question and said she was a casino dealer on a cruise ship so she was on the boat for the majority of the year. She told me the same story as you guys, the ship doesn't allow them to talk on the phone. When I asked to see the car whenever she was in town (Indianapolis) she switched the story saying the car was at a shipping company in North Dakota and the transaction had to be done through google checkout. It sounded fishy so I looked up google checkout and this is what came up. & Thank god I did, I would've wasted 2700 dollars. Her email is nancy09v@hotmail.com

This now seems to be happening in the UK now as well. This is the email: "For the moment I am in Aberdeen, Scotland, UK in a military base, getting ready for Afghanistan (I hope for the last time). I'm doing a special training program each day and I am not allowed to get out of the unit or give calls whenever I want. The delivery will take 2 to 3 days depending on your location and it’s not a problem because I can do it at no cost for you. Because it is a large transaction, we will complete the deal only using an authorized third part like Google Checkout because I already prearranged the whole process with them, using their Google Safe Pay Solutions (bank-to-bank wire transfer) for vehicles. The money will be sent to Google Checkout, before you will receive the vehicle. So, you will deposit the payment directly into the Google Checkout agent's bank account in United Kingdom, either online or at most banks and they will hold and secure your money during the entire transaction. I repeat, they will hold and insure your money until receipt of the vehicle in good condition and will release the funds to us only after you decide to keep the vehicle and you register it, into your name. You will have an inspection period of 7 days. In this time you can check, test and inspect the vehicle. If by any reason (the vehicle has any hidden damages or is not like I describe it) you can reject the deal. In this case Google Checkout will refund you totally and they will deliver the vehicle back. Let me know your shipping details (your full name, full address and home phone number) so I can open a transaction case with Google Checkout and declare you as buyer. They will contact you with further information regarding payment and delivery." Reads a little too much like the one's on this thread. For now I'm holding off - He was offering a £10,000 car for £3,500. I'll see if I get an more emails from him and if it looks more like a fraud I'll post his name and email.

I guess this is one of this cases. from Blum.ESTHER44@GMAIL.COM Hi again, The car is currently stored with all the paperwork in Google Checkout warehouse number 28,in Great Falls,MT ,headquarters, in the container,sealed and ready for shipping.The transaction will be made thru Google Checkout because they can protect both of us and they also offer 10 days inspection period. You'll have 10 days to inspect, test and drive the car before decided to keep it or not. If the vehicle is not like I described, you'll ship it back on my expense and they will give you a full refund.Google Checkout will hold the funds until you receive the car with all the papers work. Only after you confirm them that you wanna keep the car they will release me the funds. In this way, you will be able to inspect the vehicle before committing to buy it. If you want to start the transaction with Google Checkout just reply me with your full name, shipping address and your phone number,then Google Checkout will contact you with further instructions. Please visit this link to see more pictures with the vehicle: http://s1310.beta.photobucket.com/user/04altimasl/library/ Thank you. PS:The car comes with all the documents ( title, bill of sale, full service records, etc...) It has a clear title in my name. The title will be signed into your name as soon as the payment will be sent to Google Checkout.

I received this from: jeffreymack31@gmail.com I left the car with all the documents in Google's possession at their warehouse in Akron, it's sealed and ready for a new owner. The shipping cost is included in the price and it will take 3 days to arrive at your place. You will see and test drive it before I get paid because the transaction will be handled by Google Checkout, they offer protection to both buyer and seller for all the situations that can appear in a transaction. I suggest to use Google Checkout as I've used them many times before and never had a single complain. If you agree I need your full name and complete shipping address in order to register the transaction. Google will contact you with all the details about the transaction like terms, buyer's protection, payment instructions, etc. PLEASE DON'T BE SCAMMED BY THESE A-HOLES!

The vehicle is already at our Military Logistic Department Tobyhanna, Pennsylvania, U.S. Army, crated and ready to go. The shipping will be free for you because I will transport it using the internal logistic department! The Logistic Department will deliver the vehicle to the nearest US army base from your area and from there I will use a tow-truck to have it delivered at your door. The whole shipping process will take 3-5 days. I'm unable to travel in the near future because we are currently involved in a military program. Due to military security reasons I'm restricted from leaving the unit's facility under any purpose and have strictly limited phone access.I decided to make this transaction through Google Checkout at a lower price.Using this service you will get a 5 days testing period after delivery. During that 5 days testing period I will not be getting any money.With the vehicle you will also receive all it's papers, including a bill of sale and title.This service protects both buyer and seller and it's the right way to do this.If you decide to buy this vehicle email me your: Full Name and Shipping address, so I can inform Google Checkout that I have a buyer! I will forward your details to them and then you will receive an invoice (with no further obligations or fees). Then you will be able to talk with them directly and ask all you want to know.

I see all kinds of stories about google checkout safe payment financier and guess I am the only person who lost money on this scam. I have been searching this email by using reverse email, reverse ip and traced it to an AOL server. This seems to be as far as I can go without getting a subpoena to trace further. I have filed reports with every department local, state, and federal with no results or interest. This group of scammers has been doing this same scam for over six years in the US and are still running it. The person that I purchased the truck from Edward.blevins78@yahoo.com uses many sites and aliases. The person that received the money was Richard Lindley that has a state issued fake DL and I found out is also selling cars on many sites. What I wonder is why no one has caught these people? During my search over the last couple of months I have come to the conclusion that this is all one big scam whether from the service providers themselves or government. This scam would require a legal search that cost $150 to $375 per hour to trace for court case plus lawyers fees. This is way beyond most peoples income. I am open to suggestions on how to bring this group of scammers down for the good of all people that buy on the net.

I offered to go over and pick up the truck telling them that I was only an hour away and could be there by noon. Below is the reply. The link to Google.checkout is a phony link. K Walsh If you want to buy the truck here is my post on Google Checkout http://google.checkout-gw.com/veh.storeID25332344UTV/store.php?ssid_oz3zh2wz51cudo2&&verified_seller=true&&p=store&&dmpt=US_Vehicles. The transaction will be fully under Google’s surveillance, giving us both security and insurance since they offer the highest rate of safety and reliability during online transactions. They are responsible for the security of this transaction and you have nothing to be worried about. Don`t worry this transaction is legit and all your funds are fully insured by their company. You will have a period of 5 days for inspection as I told you in my first email. The inspection period start from the moment when the truck is delivered at your address. I think 5 days is enough for you to make a decision if you keep the truck or not. If you won’t like my truck then you notify Google Checkout and send it back on my cost. Let me know if you're still interested so we can move forward, Thanks, Violet Ivener

There at it again. I am glad we can move on and I have already forwarded your information to Google Checkout, they will contact you with the terms of payment, to clarify how the entire transaction will be done. Just get back to me after you receive the payment invoice and let me know how long does it take to proceed with the payment as Google Checkout instructed you. If you don't receive the email from Google Checkout shortly, please check your junk mail folder. The shipping process will be done by the transportation battalion with full support from our logistics department. To ensure total protection and peace of mind, the tractor will be delivered to nearest military airport in your area and then it will be trucked forward to your home address. The transporting process can take approximately 2 to 3 days and all the documents you need for ownership ( Title, Bill of Sale, signed and notarized and the Owners Manual ) will be provided along with the tractor. Thank you for your time and consideration, you won't be disappointed!!! Harry Tiller PS: The guys from our logistic department will call you with delivery/pickup instructions 1 day ahead so you can communicate what time schedule work best for your to receive the Kubota tractor).

Just watch out peep... if it is too good to be true, it probably is. I was looking at a 2008 Islandia Sea Doo and had been researching these boats for three months now. Then, all of the sudden, boom! this boat which is usually 15-22,000 dollars was available to me for 2,800.00. Of course I jumped before anybody else could have gotten to it... well searching the first sentence in this person's response lead me here. Stay smart and DO NOT SEND money!!!!!!!

I received this today from someone deal or scam? I think it might be a scam! Hello again Mellissa, I can wait till Friday if you are sure that you can make the payment. First of all I have to tell you that I can't use the phone due the casino policy. Here on the cruise ship, the dealers have prohibited to use the phone. The trailer is already at the shipping company in Jackson, MS ready for the shipping. The shipping process will take between 4-6 days, depending on your location. I have a contract with Google Checkout so this deal must go through them. As I said in the first email I work as a casino dealer on a cruise ship and I can't meet you or bring you the trailer, so that's why I am using a shipping company. Since this is an online transaction I wanted the both of us to be safe so for this deal I am using Google Checkout , and that means that you have 5 days from the time you receive the trailer to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not. Here is how it works: 1.First of all I will need the following details from you: - Full Name - Full Shipping Address 2. After I will receive the details from you, I will forward them to Google Checkout. 3. After they will process your info, they will send us both invoices.Your will make the payment to Google Checkout and the funds will be 100% insured by Google Checkout. 4. Google Checkout will contact me and I will ship the trailer to you. After you receive the trailer you will have 5 days to test, verify and do whatever you need to the trailer.If you will buy it, then I will receive the payment from Google Checkout. Please take into consideration that I will get paid only after you receive the trailer and make sure everything is as agreed. 5. If you will decide that you will not buy it, Google Checkout will refund you and I will have the shipping company come pick up my trailer. If you wish to make the transaction, please send me the necessary info so that we can proceed. Thank you

My husband wanted a divorce. I was desperate and decided to give your service a try. I purchased your Stop Our Divorce Love Spell last year. Within 3days, he did an about face. I have to say, I wasn't really expecting that at all. Dr. Abu, this has made me so happy. I'll be using your spell casting service all the time. I love the personal attention I get. Even better, I know your spells really work accurately and quickly. Thanks again Ominighospelltemple@gmail.com

OCTOBER 22/2013 THIS IS A CLASSIC EXAMPLE OF A SCAM: Hi Al, Please excuse this late reply! I've received your e-mail regarding the 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited AWD with 75K Miles. The vehicle is still for sale and my asking price is $2,250 if you can buy it today. It is a 2002 model loaded with everything. The vehicle is very well maintained and it has just been completely serviced. The 4.7L V8 SOHC 16V Engine runs very good and the automatic transmission shifts perfectly.The vehicle is in perfect condition with clear title,no accidents, no liens or loans.You have here the VIN # to check it 1J4GW58N02C162393 https://www.nicb.org/theft_and_fraud_awareness/vincheck I'm a cruise ship casino dealer(5 year contract, I won't get to use it more than 3 months/year for the following 5 years. I don't want to pay unnecessary taxes for owning a vehicle that I don't use) and I'm on sea at this moment, so I left the vehicle in Cambridge, OH at the shipping company, it's already packed and waiting to be shipped anywhere. Shipping/delivery is included in this price as I almost closed the deal with another customer but he was unable to take the loan from the bank. I've already prepared shipping for him as he was out of state. I propose to manage the sale with eBay Vehicle Purchase Protection Program and if you want to know more about eBay Vehicle Purchase Protection Program process,please email me back. Here you can find more pictures of the vehicle : http://goo.gl/xMcf3Y Let me know if you are interested! Thanks! Melanie Brainerd (515) 992-6291 EVERYTHING IS FAKE!

We have come across something very similar (same "reassurances" and wording) regarding an ATV out of San Francisco (a sad remnant from a divorce, needs to be sold, "she" is an oceanographer who is at sea and can check emails but not make phone calls, and the ATV can't be viewed in person because it is already in the Google shipping warehouse in Fremont, CA waiting to be shipped...which doesn't exist, by the way). My husband made some calls to Google and learned that Google checkout or wallet CANNOT make transactions regarding vehicles of any kind. They have NO SHIPPING WAREHOUSES. Buyers beware...I was truly sickened to read of one account where someone took an individual's money knowing the "purchase" was a Rhino to be used to transport a disabled child. Guard your wallets, folks...

The vehicle is here with me at the base but I’ve already made all the arrangements with DAS to pick it up from the base. DAS will also handle the title transfer for an extra $75.00.

I am a member of the Google Wallet protection program and using this service you will give a 5 days testing period after delivery. During that 5 days testing period I will not be getting any money.

I already received their notice so you have to received it also. I almost forgot...If we will have a deal, this will help you. If the clerk is aware that you are sending the funds for paying something with commercial value will charge you with $300 because in these transactions, the shipping must be paid by the buyer. I will pay the shipping like I told you, being in the army will be very cheap. Is better to tell them that you are sending the money to a friend or a relative of yours and in this way everything it will be in good order.

Esther blum @eblum34@gmail.com is a scam artist claiming her son died months ago and she is trying to sell his car because it brings bad memories. She states the car she has on the Ad is already in Louisiana ebay headquarters waiting for shipment. Fcking bullshit! I contacted ebay they had no idea.

Beware of scammer: Lt Mathias Nicholas! This is the email he sends you I've received your email regarding the 2004 Toyota Camry XLE. The car is still for sale. It has 83,000 miles on it, automatic transmission, engine 2.4L Gasoline, CD Changer, Power Sunroof, Front and Side Air Bags, Anti-Lock Brakes, Air Conditioning, Cruise Control, Power Locks, Power Windows, Power Seats, Clear Title etc. The car is in perfect condition and it was very well maintained. I'm asking $1,690 for it, not negotiable. The car belonged to my father who passed away this year after a long bout with cancer and brings me a lot of memories that make me suffer and this is the reason for what I want to sell it as soon as possible. It comes with a clear title, no liens/loans, no accidents, no problems whatsoever, also I was named executor in his will so there won't be any legal problems regarding the sale of the car. The price is lower because I am in the Navy and we are preparing for an important mission so I hope that I would find a serious buyer in a few days. If you have any other questions, or need more info and pics, please free to ask. Sincerely, Lt. Mathias Nicholson
