CRAIG'S LIST FRAUD LISTING SCAMMER

Postby schase » Mon Jul 13, 2009 8:33 pm

As most of you have seen on your site before, there are people out there that are out to scam on Autotrader and on eBay to sell cars. I found this manic on Craig's List.

I want to share these few emails from a person going by the alias Adam Kendall <adkendall36@yahoo.com>, trying to sell a 2005 Volvo XC90 Beautiful Suv - $5500 (jacksonville) in the local Jacksonville, Florida Craig's list. http://jacksonville.craigslist.org/cto/1266762633.html

Ad:

Reply to: sale-avdjk-1266762633@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

Some of the features include:
~Heated leather seats
~Power moon roof
~Third row seat
~All wheel drive
~Dynamic Stability Control System
~6 CD audio system
~DVD
~ NAV
~Winter Package


I wrote the seller and emails exchanged. I asked for VIN and his phone number. He wrote:

Email #2 and #1:

Right now I`m in a military base. we are getting ready for Iraq. I don`t have my cell with me. We`ll have to stick to email for now as this is the only way I can communicate.The shipping can't be a problem because I can do it at no cost for you. You will receive the suv along with all the documents including title, bill of sale, full service records and more .Vin# YV1CZ852151178085.Because it is a large transaction we will complete the deal only using an authorized third party like eBay, using their Business Purchase Protection Program.The payment will be handling by eBay and you will benefit of 5 inspection time period (test drive) and the option to accept or reject the suv on my expense. If you are still interested just send me your full name and shipping address. I will forward your info and they will notify you about our deal.

Regards!!

Adam Kendall <adkendall36@yahoo.com>,

Hi,

I am selling this suv because my platoon has been sent back to Iraq and don't want it get old in my backyard. The price is low because I need to sell it before Jul 18. 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.The suv has 54,000 original miles..

It is still available for sale if interested, price as stated in the ad $5,500. The suv is in Billings, MT, in case it gets sold I will take care of shipping. Let me know if you are interested, email back.



Regards!!!
Adam Kendall <adkendall36@yahoo.com>

_______________________________________________________
Knowing that military personal can ship a car at no cost and this person had some intel, got to me. This person probably does have some knowledge about the military and he/she could write. My final email to them was this and I've not heard back from them, which prompted me to want to at least post their email online.

My email to Adam Kendall <adkendall36@yahoo.com> :
Adam,
My husband is a retired LTC, US Army. We are seriously interested in this type of vehicle, BUT, this has the MO of a scam.

And IF, by some chance you are not a scammer, prove yourself by sending your name, rank, and last four to us, along with your present duty station, unit, and where you are headed in Iraq.
Email or Call us when you can and if we agree about the vehicle, send us a private sale on eBay to 'my ebay name' and we can pay you through PayPal so we can have some assurance this is all on the up and up. We cannot use any of eBay's services on Craig's list because this is NOT eBay, Adam, as you well know.

And if you are up to no good, do us both a favor and just do not bother contacting us again because you have never met a more honest or tenacious individual than I.

Furthermore, Adam, I pulled an Autocheck on the title and there is a lien on the title, and it's not 'clear' as you stated. A lien went on it when it was recently purchased. And you've not put miles on it at all since you've bought it? Houston, we do have a problem!

What goes around, eventually does come back around...and what boot catches your backside one day won't feel too good.

I received very similar e-mails regarding a travel trailer that was listed. The Craig's List post was flagged that day for removal before I figured out it was a scam. I had sent the first e-mail asking for more information on the trailer. This person is going by the alias of Michael Dietrich. Here's the first reply:

Thanks for your interest! I have divoced my wife and I no longer need this 2006 Fleetwood 3102 BDS. Used just a couple of times, the camper is in excellent condition, it has no problems, no cosmetic damage or hidden defects. All equipment and optionals work perfectly. My asking price is $2900, I have no need for this trailer and want to sell it fast.
I left it at a escrow company in Pine Bluff - Arkansas and it will be shipped from there free of charge for inspection, before you buy it. I need to sell it ASAP as I am undergoing military training, getting ready to be shipped to Iraq.
Complete set of pictures with the camper can be seen here: http://s1016.photobucket.com/albums/af282/customer4553/
Get back to me if you are interested in purchasing and we have a deal.
Sincerely,
Michael

PS. here's a complete list of specifications, save it for further reference:
(deleted long list of specs)

I responded back saying that I had noticed the posting was flagged for removal, thinking he already had an interested buyer, and that if he still had it, I was interested. Here is the second reply that I received which caused me to do some checking on-line and come across this site:

Thanks for getting back to me.
The trailer's price is $2.900. Right now I am on base Camp Robinson in NLR, AR. Shipping this camper to your location is free of charge and it will be handled by the escrow company Royal Vehicle Trade INC. in Pine Bluff, AR. This camper is enlisted in the Royal Vehicle Trade escrow program and this transaction will be conducted through them. In accordance with the escrow's terms, you will have the camper for 3 days to inspect it and decide whether you want to keep it or not. Final price is $2900 and the camper will be shipped along with all documents, clean title with my signature on it, owner's manual and keys. It's condition is flawless, there is no body damage, all interior equipment is working as it should and there are no mechanical problems.
These are the steps you have to follow to buy this 2006 Fleetwood Pioneer 3102BDS:
1. To open the case with Royal Vehicle Trade, I need you to register online with them at this adress http://www.r-vt.com and send me your user name.
2. I will start a transaction with you on the site. You will have to issue a MoneyGram payment of $2900 to a verified Royal Vehicle Trade Agent and the payment will be secured with them. Only you will have access to the payment at that point.
3. I will ship the camper and after you receive it, you will have 3 days to test and verify the camper. If you decide to buy it, I will receive the payment from Royal Vehicle Trade. Otherwise, the camper will be collected by the escrow company and shipped back free of charge to you and you will be fully refunded by the escrow company.
If you want to purchase, please send me the necessary information so we can proceed.
Michael

I checked on-line and could not find anything on Royal Vehicle Trade. The url is very similar to RVT which is a legitimate on-line RV selling, listing site. The only difference in the URLs is that RVT's does not have the hyphen.

Hello,

thank you for posting the information here. http://www.r-vt.com/ is indeed another of those fake sites; and the "seller" himself is part of the group of scammers.

I've added http://www.r-vt.com/ to our database: http://escrow-fraud.com/index.php?page= ... a&id=10395

A report was sent to the hoster: from my previous experiences I would expect the site to be killed in about 24 to 36 hours.

If you want to compare it to other previous "incarnations":
http://escrow-fraud.com/index.php?page= ... &layout=35

(yes, all those sites used the same design as the current one).

Please post the email address of the scammer here so that other people may find it (when doing a web search for this address).

Hello,

be assured that the email did not come from ebay. You can post the email addresses of "David Rener" and the supposed ebay agent. In case this shouldn't be clear already: It's a scam. Don't send any money.

Using the alias of Adam Dempsey BEWARE OF THIS CROOK!!!!!!!!

I almost fell for the scam, but luckily I found this website just by googling the false vin number provided.

This is the email sent to me:

I left it at a shipping company in Orlando FL and it will be shipped from there free of charge for inspection, before you buy it. I need to sell it ASAP as I am undergoing military training, getting ready to be shipped to Afghanistan.

After asking him specific questions related to the sale and him unable to provide the information, I began to feel he was suspicious. So, his response to me was:
Hi again,
2500 is ok for me.
Right now I'm on a military base, getting ready for Afghanistan. So I am not able to talk on the phone for now. The vehicle is already at the shipping company warehouse, ready to be shipped. The vehicle is enlisted in the eBay VPP program so this deal must go through them. In accordance with eBay Vehicle Purchase Program terms, you have 3 days from the time you receive the vehicle to inspect it and decide whether you want to keep it or not. The vehicle will be shipped free of charge, along with all documents, clean title with my signature on it, owner's manual and keys. It has never been involved in any accident, there's no body damage or mechanical problems. Here is how it will work:

1. First of all, I will need your details: Full name, shipping address and phone #.
2. Once I receive the details from you, I will forward them to Ebay VPP for processing.
3. After they process your information, they will send you an invoice with all the details on how to make a refundable payment. Basically, you will have to issue a Western Union payment to a verified eBay VPP Agent and the payment will be secured with them. Only you will have access to the payment.
4. Ebay will contact me and I will ship the vehicle. After you receive it you will have 3 days to test and verify the vehicle. If you decide to buy it, I will receive the payment from Ebay. Otherwise, the vehicle will be shipped back free of charge on your side and you will be fully refunded. If you wish to make the transaction, please send me the necessary information so we can proceed.
I'll wait your response.
Thanks

And again, I asked him to validate that his auction was on eBay Motors, which he avoided. I then get up to find 2 emails regarding a BPP program invoice that resembles nothing of the sort of eBay. I checked my eBay account, and no auctions were won. Therefor, I did a google search on the "VIN" number he provided and low and behold I found this site! I am an idiot for sending him my name, address and phone number. I don't think he can do much with that information. But, my final email to him was:Lisa to Adam

Here are the simple steps you need to follow in order to complete the payment:
1. Locate a Western Union Agent.
2. The transfer is paid with cash, so have cash available and a form of ID.
3. The transfer is meant to be collected by the Agent as an individual, therefore no Company Code is needed, just the Agent specific details.

I surely hope no one has fallen for his scam. I found this add on craigslist, and kinda felt it was too good to be true since the book value of a camper as "immaculate" as he claims would be valued at $18,000+. I just hope this post can help some one else from avoiding this low life scum. :evil: PUNK!

Postby lalvarado134 » Thu Oct 28, 2010 3:38 pm

Using the alias of Adam Dempsey BEWARE OF THIS CROOK!!!!!!!!

I almost fell for the scam, but luckily I found this website just by googling the false vin number provided.

This is the email sent to me:

Thanks for your interest! I have divoced my wife and I no longer need this 2006 Fleetwood 3102 BDS. Used just a couple of times, the camper is in excellent condition, it has no problems, no cosmetic damage or hidden defects. All equipment and optionals work perfectly. My asking price is $2850, I have no need for this trailer and want to sell it fast.
I left it at a shipping company in Orlando FL and it will be shipped from there free of charge for inspection, before you buy it. I need to sell it ASAP as I am undergoing military training, getting ready to be shipped to Afghanistan.

Complete set of pictures with the camper can be seen here:

After asking him specific questions related to the sale and him unable to provide the information, I began to feel he was suspicious. So, his response to me was:
Hi again,
2500 is ok for me.
Right now I'm on a military base, getting ready for Afghanistan. So I am not able to talk on the phone for now. The vehicle is already at the shipping company warehouse, ready to be shipped. The vehicle is enlisted in the eBay VPP program so this deal must go through them. In accordance with eBay Vehicle Purchase Program terms, you have 3 days from the time you receive the vehicle to inspect it and decide whether you want to keep it or not. The vehicle will be shipped free of charge, along with all documents, clean title with my signature on it, owner's manual and keys. It has never been involved in any accident, there's no body damage or mechanical problems. Here is how it will work:

1. First of all, I will need your details: Full name, shipping address and phone #.
2. Once I receive the details from you, I will forward them to Ebay VPP for processing.
3. After they process your information, they will send you an invoice with all the details on how to make a refundable payment. Basically, you will have to issue a Western Union payment to a verified eBay VPP Agent and the payment will be secured with them. Only you will have access to the payment.
4. Ebay will contact me and I will ship the vehicle. After you receive it you will have 3 days to test and verify the vehicle. If you decide to buy it, I will receive the payment from Ebay. Otherwise, the vehicle will be shipped back free of charge on your side and you will be fully refunded. If you wish to make the transaction, please send me the necessary information so we can proceed.
I'll wait your response.
Thanks

And again, I asked him to validate that his auction was on eBay Motors, which he avoided. I then get up to find 2 emails regarding a BPP program invoice that resembles nothing of the sort of eBay. I checked my eBay account, and no auctions were won. Therefor, I did a google search on the "VIN" number he provided and low and behold I found this site! I am an idiot for sending him my name, address and phone number. I don't think he can do much with that information. But, my final email to him was:Lisa to Adam
