Have you ever shopped on Craigslist?
If so, then you probably know that they offer tons of deals (including wives – see Yuliyana Kalinina And The Green Card Marriage Scam).
Sometimes, people buy stuff and then they don’t want it after a period of time and sell it for cheap.
Other times, people receive gifts and sell those gifts back for cash.
Everything seems ideal, right?
Like the old adage goes, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”
However, if you’re a Craigslist shopper you need to beware of all the scammers.
For example, I read an article about a man in the UK trying to sell a car to a man in the US, and when the money was sent, there was no car and no trace of the man who claimed to want to sell the car.
Further, there was a case about a person who bought a 500 dollar gift card for Macy’s for only 50 bucks!
But it turned out, the card had a balance of zero dollars and zero cents on it – the buyer should have called to check.
As you can see, these cases teach us a lot about scams and scammers.
Most of the scams you will come across are often very obvious – I mean, who would sell you a 500 dollar gift card for 50!?!
And scammers tend to be very distant and compromising when it comes to it.
So, watch out if you’re going to buy stuff on Craigslist!
