Type of a scam Online Purchase
I posted a motorcycle for sale on Craigs list he wanted to use pay pall that was fine to start with. (He said he was a engineer on a ship with no access to western union) But then he wanted me to receive extra funds to pay for shipping via western union them for me to ship it to Peru. Using his agent. This felt wrong as i never heard of this scam. I then told him i only was doing cash in person no shipping. Then he contacted me saying he all ready sent the money. I checked I received no money. I contacted PAY PALL and reported it they said I was safe even though he had my email address. All he could do was send money. his cell is 701 289 2350 I then blocked it on my phone. This type of scam was on pay palls address. PAY PALL is the way to go.

Type of a scam Other
An unidentified number came up on my phone.. Normally I do not answer, but lately, I have been, just to tell them Not to call me anymore.. When I answered the man introduced himself as James and said we were on a recorded line "Can you hear me ok"… Instinctively I said yes, told him I wasn’t interested and to take our number off their call list.. Only after hanging up did I remember the scam about them using your voice recording to authorize fraudulent usage.. Not sure who I should notify to make sure I don’t end up being responsible for something I did not order or want..
