Used Camper Scam 
Daniel Powell
Email Address:
I responded via text to an ad in local newspaper for a 30 ft travel trailer for sale. It had a picture and low price with phone number to text for more info. After requesting more info, I received text from a different phone number (555888 is what shows on text) about a 27 ft camper and my email info to send more pics. I then received email directing me to a you tube video that was a tour of the camper tagged with his name. I had already seen the exact same video earlier that day after researching that yr and model camper (filmed by an inspector). I asked where the camper was located and was told Shelbyville, KY. I was told he was a construction engineer in a very loud envoirnment and talking on phone was annoying. He did, however always have a tablet with him to respond to emails. He was leaving the next day for a new company project in the UK. His employer, Kiewit, had given him a relocation package and agreed to pay for advertising, keep camper in sealed storage, and deliver the camper to me at no cost to me. I had to make payment thru Amazon Payments which would not release the money to him until 5 days after I approved the receipt of camper. If I didn't like the camper, they would pay to pick up and refund my money. When I didn't respond, 2 days later I get a text, from a different number (859-379-8152) asking for my email address to send me some pictures he had put together. I responded that I had already sent email address and why was this a different phone number. Communications stopped.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
