I was first contacted about my craigslist ad via text from email address battonobu496@gmail.com who asked me to respond with info to scillo120@gmail.com regarding purchase. He stated his name was Sgt Jack West stationed overseas and he wanted my motorcycle sight-unseen and would send a 3rd party shipping co to pick it up after submitting paypal payment. I googled him and found it to be a scam and proceeded to

I recently posted a car for sell on CL got a text from jaspershop1@gmail.com (Kayode Bishop)it also came back as Donald Rocky. The response to that e-mail was to use their personal e-mail stecsybradley5@gmail.com. Name on that account came back as Kimberly Wortley. She too said that she was overseas serving until November 20 2014. She has a paypal account and wanted to buy the car. And just needed my FULL NAME AND PAYPAL EMAIL ADDRESS ALONG WITH YOUR NUMBER to make payment and have a 3rd party pick up the car for her. sounded strange and started research and here I sit now.

This Scammer is moving pretty fast in changing contact information. I see that it has just changed from two days ago and again yesterday, I guess mine makes twice yesterday. So Called Sgt Jack West contacted me regarding a CL add I posted for a 2003 Infiniti initially texting me w/ the bogus phone number 121)010-0032 from Donald Rocky to email reply to rj1542066@gmail.com. Already suspicious and wanting to give him/her the benefit of the doubt being that I did have an active military boyfriend that made a ebay purchase of a classic truck restoration from ebay in new york and at the time we lived in TX and I had to get it shipped to my house so I know it could be legit but probably wasn't. I emailed to be certain and did some investigating. Again fishy that the rj1542006@gmail was attached to a person by the name Kimberly Wortley. I called paypal and asked what protections were in store for such a purchase and what happends once funds are cleared would I still be in jeopardy of getting stung. Of course answer was "YES". I am so glad I trusted my gut or I'd be out a car I've worked hard to aquire and 11,500.00!! P.S. Googled Kimberly Wortley scam and a sight came up saying was a person over seas scamming dating sites. Not sure if this helps.
