Robbery is one of the biggest motives for scamming on Craigslist. In this case, two men from different states responded to a Craigslist ad from Cleveland for a job on a farm. The two men were told they got the job, and they needed to bring all their belongings to the farm where they would live. During the meeting, one man managed to escape after being shot. He reported the whole thing to the police. He was found dead not too long after. After the investigation, the police summarized that robbery was the goal all along.
Most of these properties being targeted are already in the market for sale by a broker, but scammers generally price these properties at an extremely low rate. Scammers use the same photographs used by the actual owners and brokers, so the pictures are legit.
Of course, the entire transaction is not legitimate, but by the time the buyers realize this or the actual owners of the house find out, the money is usually long gone. The best way to avoid falling for this scam is to actually try to tour the property before giving any money up.
Never give up money electronically without seeing the house firsthand and talking with the owners. Do your research and you should be okay. Craigslist is truly a good source for buying cars for a cheaper price. However, so many scammers have taken advantage of the surplus of car buyers on the website.
They post cars on Craigslist that are either fake or not working at all. Lots of buyers get scammed from buying good deals through Craigslist and putting up money to reserve or take the car off the listing. One particular buyer caught someone in a scam after he came across two different Craigslist with the exact same car for sale and the exact same story as well. A Craigslist user trying to sell his truck on the website came across a buyer that was clearly a scammer.
The stories these scammers use are almost always the same. Of course, scammers now have a way of creating fake Paypal s and confirmations, which makes the scam more difficult to detect. Paypal is generally one of the most secure ways to conduct a financial transaction. Just make sure you watch out for red flags, and you should be okay.
