Victim Location 44720
Type of a scam Online Purchase
I had put a PS4 on craigslist and a number texted me saying he was a marine buying it for his niece, however I had to ship it and give the shipping number to paypal before the money was transferred. Not knowing paypal well, I had shipped it and gave the shipping number to the "paypal" email, a day later we found out all of the emails from paypal were fake when I needed to "upgrade my account" to business user when I was already verified to increase my money limit. He said he was going to pay for it then have me wire the refund of $320 to a different person. Since then we have tried to intercept the package with USPS, but with the new year we have not heard anything back yet.
