Another Scam regarding my trailer:

From: Jessica Weston xujioubruce1111@gmail.com

Just viewed your listing and will like to purchase it .please what is the condition and more detail of it.
Cheers.


My reply......


Thanks for your mail,I will not be coming to view it because of my Job,i am an oceanist and i am buying this for my Dad. i accept your offer and i will be happy to accept my offer.I can only pay through paypal at the moment as i don't have access to my bank account online,but i have it attached to my paypal account, and this is why i insisted on using paypal to pay,all i will need is your paypal email address to make the payments,and if you don't have a paypal account yet,its pretty easy to set one up at www.paypal.com i will be expecting your email. my mover will come for arrange to pick up after payment clear .Thanks and nice doing business with you...i hope we can make the purchase as fast as possible?
1:Are you the first owner of it?
2:Why are you selling it?
3:And does it has any dent on it or anything?
4oes it has any fault affecting it?
5:When have you been using it?

My reply.......


Thanks for the message ....the reason why PayPal is the only payment option is because it is safe and secure and as soon as i make the payment for it,you will be sent a notification for the payment receipt in this your email ....that is if you use this your email address to set up the paypal account and i have a mover that will come over for the pick up and the pick up representatives only comes up when we have finish the deal so don't worry i will be the one to take care of the pick up expenses ok. i will be glad if you can log on to www.paypal.com and set up your account and send me email use to set up and i will suggest you make use of this your email address so when i make the payment you will be notify of the receipt from PayPal instantly.i look to read from you soon...


My last reply:

Hello Jessica,
For this transaction I would only accept cash given to me personally from the local bank teller.
George.

PS; regarding your questions I already answered them in the previous reply.


The emails from Jessica stopped, I assume being an "oceanist" has something to do with fishing.

Cash in advance

I fail to see the humour in this confusing thread.
I am currently negotiating on an FGRV advertised sale and you have me worried although I do believe that most members here are on the up and up. I don't want to insult the seller but.....
To whom do I address my concerns, if I have any? Will someone vouch for the seller if I ask? D.

I did buy a fgrv trailer sight unseen a few weeks ago.- Huge thanks I owe to the friendly people on this site who took the time to personally look at it for me in the mid-west, as i am in Pa. I spoke to the dealer and person in charge of moving the trailer to storage for me and receved a bill of sale in the mail. We cant transfer the title yet as its only good for 60 days- I wont be out there till sept. - because these trailers are hard to come by, I truly recommend reaching out to others on this site. It doesnt hurt to ask others for help- especially when dealing with hard earned cash.

A way to verify legitimacy of an inquiry

A way to verify legitimacy of an inquiry is to search for an e-mail address. In case of Jessica Weston I searched for (Jessica Weston xujioubruce1111@gmail.com) and this UK site had a comment:

"I placed an advert on Autotrader and have received 3 fraudulent email replies asking me for Paypal details. Then the fraudster says he’s transferred the money and an agent will pick up the car however the agent requires an £800 fee upfront which I need to transfer via Western Union…it’s utter rubbish!
Fraudsters email addresses are:
mercyj11@gmail.com – Mercy abu
xujioubruce04@gmail.com – Jessica Weston
willliambrightt@gmail.com – William Bright
Burn them!"


High Wycombe: Fraudster trying to scam me from autotrader ad | Find The Scams

Different numbers but names were the same. No surprise that emails stopped after my request for cash. From all inquires I had regarding my trailer I had only one fraudulent one from Jessica or xujioubruce or whatever there name is.

George.

This is funny, when I advertise on RVTrader or Craig's List, I received sexually explicit solicitations, some even with pictures. Who figures how they get your email's??

On Craigs I seem to recall there is a check box you need to click in order to hide your email address from people responding to your ad.... .

When I place an ad via Craigslist I mention that I don't answer emails and take only phone calls from interested parties.

All ya gotta do is just agree with them. Since they obviously HAVE the $$$ to pay with paypal - ask 'em to transfer the $$$$ IN FULL to their driver who can then pay you IN FULL.

Point out that a driver arriving sans cash will be dealt with the police

Betcha no driver ever shows at the address you give - which will, of course, be the establishment of the local constabulary!

(Or as a friend did - post a pic of a Hells Angels type biker in full gear and point out that "this is me and I'm looking forward to meeting you!")

I came across the same thing... Posing as a military officer who had to reduce the price because he was getting shipped off to Afghanistan... Im on the east coast, and he knew that, so he said the trailer was stored on military base outside of Tacoma WA. My cousin lives in Tacoma so I asked if she could come see it before I decide to buy it. Here was his response -
[begin quote]

"Hi again,

Like I said in my first email, I'm making final preparations before deploying to Afghanistan. Shipping will be my part, The Logistic Department will deliver the camper to your home and it will take no more than 4 days. All documents you need for ownership, manuals, title and bill of sale will be provided along with the camper.

For the payment I would like to use Amazon Payments as a third party. They will keep your money into a protection account until you get the camper 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 camper before committing to buy and to eliminate any concerns you will have 5 days to inspect it. If you decide not to keep it, Amazon Payments 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.

Now, if you are serious about this and want to move forward, just email me back with:
- Your Full Name - Required by Amazon Payments (You'll receive important guidelines + payment instructions from them).
- Your Shipping Address and Phone Number - Required by the Logistic Department (They will call you with delivery instructions 1 day ahead so you can communicate what time schedule work best for your to receive the camper)

If the camper is not how I've described it, you have the unequivocal right to refuse acceptance of the camper (return postage on my expense) and you are entitled to a full and complete refund.

Sorry for the long email, I have tried to explain the entire process.

P.S I asked them to allow viewers to go there and inspect the camper but their reply was "We are not a showroom!"

Thanks,
Col. Darren Wright, US Army
[end quote]


That poster should be ashamed of himself - Using a hightly respected position to gain the trust of someone he has every intention of screwing over... I'm so glad I knew to stay away.

Keep the faith.
-Lady D and the Scamp
