Type of a scam Online Purchase
Seller was trying to sell a BMW X5 for cheap on craigslist. When I text the contact phone number, the number texted back that the post done for their sister and to contact her at [email protected] Once I contacted the email, the person claiming to be Patricia Myers stated that she " just got divorced and the vehicle was awarded to me in our divorce.I have a low price ($15,000) because I want to sell it before October 5th ideally. I have a deployment coming up and would prefer to have my mother who is taking care of my children, have the cash instead." She also said that the vehicle is in storage at USM Auto Shippers in Omaha, Nebraska. When I investigated further, there was no such website or search with that business name. She then replied to me in email with a link to the website. When I clicked on it, it went to a good looking site but the address and phone number could not be verified. I called the phone number with no one answering and a beep at the end. I looked up the address and it shows some physician’s office. I then did a search for that email address and it came up with a lot of hits for scammer reports. Know that this is a scam, I told them to call me so we could talk about the deal. Still waiting to hear from them. LOL.
