I was scammed on this car by sending money with money gram over $2,000.00 for purchase of car plus fees.They used ebay in scam to make you feel secure .The 1st email and start of transactions on this started on 2/10/2013,1st money was sent on 2/13/2013 then was suppose to be shipped after that & all was done.Then a couple days later after confirmations I was told I had to send another $1400 for insurance that would be returned after vehicle made it safe.This all originated on Craigslist but ebay was used in it & Dependable Auto Shippers from Orlando which had no part of it.I am from Waycross,GA area. I will post all emails involved & pray nobody else gets scammed by these people who also have a sad story about her son being killed in accident.Hope this helps someone us to not be taken from.

Hi,//

The car is in perfect condition, no electric problems, no accidents/liens/loans. No scratches, never been repainted. I have all the car manuals, title,documents. I\'m selling this car because my child of only 25 died 4 months ago in a car accident,a drunk driver hit him and his fiancee. He was with his fiance\'s car coming to our home at his little brother birthday of 14 years old. The car belonged to my son and it brings me bad memories and that\'s the reason I want to sell it. The final price is $2,000. Me and my husband travel a lot with our business and we want to make this deal through eBay\'s Buyer Protection Program. I just need your full name,full shipping address, home/cell # so I can open a case.(with no further obligation or fees). eBay will contact you with all the Transaction/shipping details you will need.We will take care of the shipping so don\'t worry.

We hope to hear soon from you.

PLEASE DO NOT REPLY to this e-Mail if you don\'t have the amount available, or if you don\'t intend to be serious.

MY NAME IS CHRISTINA. I`M NOT SURE IF YOU RECIEVED MY LAST E-MAIL SO I WAS WANTING TO SEEND ANOTHER ONE JUST TO MAKE SURE. I AM REALLY INTERESTED IN GETTING THE CAR. I`M SO VERY SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR SON, I DONT KNOW WHAT IT IS LIKE TO GO THROUGH THE LOSE OF A CHILD AND I HOPE I NEVER HAVE TO FIND OUT. MY DEEPEST SYMPOTHY GOES OUT TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.

Thank you, the car is located in Orlando, Florida, at DAS ( Dependable Auto Shippers ) headquarters, in the container, sealed and ready for shipping. You will have 10 days so you can inspect the car. Once you have inspected the car and decided to keep it, you will confirm your decision to eBay and only then they will re-route the money in to my account, but if by any reason, you won\'t be satisfied with the car you can return it back for a full refund of your money. I will take care of the shipping, don\'t worry. I will contact eBay and I will open a case with them about our deal,and they will contact you with more details,and explain better the whole process.



Please let me know after eBay will contact you,and if agree their terms,let me know when will you be able to make the payment,so I know when to prepare the shipping.


I just want to let you know that all the shipping documents are already signed and the car is ready to go now. eBay already contacted me and they said that the deal began. I already got mine. Have you received any payment invoice from them regarding our deal ?Check your spam/junk folder too if yes please let me know when you\'ll be able to complete the payment process so I can have the shipping process started...
P.S. They have sent three emails

Thanks again and bless you and your family

Lizzie


All you have to do is just go to the nearest MoneyGram location in your town and send cash under your name and address, to the eBay agent name and address that you have on the invoice. Just to complete a sending money form and give the cash to the MoneyGram agent. This takes 15 minutes to pay the money over to eBay. One more thing you must know when you will go to MoneyGram to send the money don\'t say it\'s for something you buy because they will ask for an business transfer fee (15-20% from total amount, this mean $400-$500) instead of a personal fee (4-5%, around $150 max). I know this since I have use them in the past. It\'s better for you to say the money are for a friend or relative. I will not cover the business fee so please keep in mind this.On Thu, Feb 14, 2013 at 12:27 PM, Lizzie Weldon wrote:

Hi again,

I received the confirmation from eBay and now i am just waiting for them to verify the payment and if everything is OK they will give me the tracking number and i will send it to you so you can see when the car will arrive to you.

You will have 10 days to check and test drive the car.

Thanks in advance for buying my car.

Lizzie
