You haven't seen some good craigslist hauls then....

No. You are correct. Everytime I look, I see dreamers selling things for 5X what they're currently worth...

I get the ones for $400 worth $1500. Have to dig though.

Last year I got a lot that had an emerald night, QAR, BP, shuttle expedition, 90% of a Grand Carousel, and 150 pounds of assorted bulk for $50. I find lots like that (minus GC) several times a year.

Right at the bottom of the page. Emphasis mine. How did you get swindled?:

Avoid scams, deal locally Beware wiring (e.g. Western Union), cashier checks, money orders, shipping.

Exactly, how the heck you get scammed on CL? It's only for local deals!

Lol at these ads. But, on a side note, I've actually shipped out two SSD's on CL transactions. I demanded to be paid via gift, which both agreed to. Worked out fine for everyone.

If you read the description it says "lego's $10-$100 each"  They just posted the $10 with that picture to get you to click.

Very possible, but if I'm a seller, I do a lot better than that to sell my product.  

Also, 10197 for $100?  Too good to be true to me.

Some great deals here. I already messaged the seller though before responding here so that nobody got in ahead of me.

Everything she said/did made sense to me! She even offered to refund me twice! Oh well, live and learn. I thought divorce maybe... hard times... I'm way too trusting I guess. Not anymore!

BTW her email is [email protected]

Does anyone have an update on this scammer? I've recently been a victim, myself, and am out $600. I also drove 6 hours one way, and then 6 hours back like a complete imbecile to the fake address that was provided to me for pick up. I'm not looking for berating comments -- I'm well aware I've made a completely idiotic spur-of-the-moment decision but am filing an official police report tomorrow with all of the contact information that I have. Does ANYONE have any additional information I can gather? My witch hunt has lead me to finding her location potentially around the Cincinnati area and my reverse IP look up through her email was somewhat promising as well.

I haven't seen this post locally for a while. I am guessing it got too hot perhaps. Hopefully you have some luck- not sure the details of how you lost but I remember being excited when I saw those posts

Over the course of my Hardy Boys witch hunt, I've been able to gather the last four digits of her bank account number, her current bank, two email addresses, her phone number, and (like I mentioned) a potential lead on her previous (or current) address. I'm livid. And humiliated. I have no idea how cyber crime investigations work so I'm terrified that, even after all of this sleuthing, my money is a goner. At this point it's not even about the money. I just want this sack of **** caught.

I hope you find them. Give that information to the police and I'm sure they will turn up eventually. Then take em to court ;)

Still trying to figure out how you were scammed though?
 

 


As having almost been a victim of this late last year I can give some insight at least from my perspective. Conman or girl says they are moving leaving town and will be in another region. They say they don't use the internet in any financial transacting manner...basically act as if they are naive to the ongoings of the online world. This leaves credence to the fact that perhaps they really don't know the value of the item and that is your good fortune as you see it! You make an agreement to deposit money into their account or wire transfer and they will ship it to you or provide some fake address. A combination of greed on the buyer and the conmans ability to feed it makes it an ongoing scam.
