Victim Location 39601
Type of a scam Online Purchase
Scammer posts a picture of motorcycle for sale on CraigsList. When potential victim responds to ad, they are directed to purchase WalMart gift cards and submit card information to a fake Ebay contact (866 number). Here is copy of correspondence: "You will have to get 2 walmart gift cards and confirm your payment with eBay. After that eBay will have to check with walmart company that you have loaded the money onto the cards and the shipping will start right away. You must know that you will have to keep the cards and the receipts with you so you can show them to the person in charge of the shipping when the car arrives. Also after the 5 days of inspection, only if you decide to keep it, you will have to mail the cards to eBay and only at that point the payment process will take place. So as you can see, NO ONE will have access to your money but you. I hope you got it all right and if there’s anything else that you would like to know, please don’t hesitate to call eBay at:+1(866)448-1320."
