I looked for a used transmission on Facebook Marketplace. Various places advertise and I responded to them thru FBM. They send a response to call XXX (a different number for each one). When I called each, someone with Indian accent responds with yes, we have one is stock.

The lowest price I got was $420 from "A J" from Drive Auto Parts and starting on March 13, 2023, the story begins. BTW, everyone there speaks with Indian accent, of which I am familiar and can recognize.

A said he has one for $420 with a 12-month warranty, free delivery. He asks me to go to Zelle and send the $420 to C D ([email protected]), which I did. He then asks me to take a screen shot of the transaction both from Zelle, and my bank confirming the transfer, which I did (stupid of me) and send to him thru text at (512) 572-2577.

Next, He said he needs to transfer me to someone else to confirm the transaction and transfers me to "R D" who asks me to go to the App Store to download an app. That's when I knew it was a scam. I said no, there is no need to download an app. He said he couldn't accept the funds unless I download the app, and when I said no again, he said OK he will transfer me to someone else to help.

The next guy was even more hostile, but started by saying he can help. He asks me to go to Zelle again and go to 'Request' and type in $420 and hit send, which I did. He then said to go back to Zelle and go to 'Send' and type in $420 again. I said NO because I already sent $420 and confirmed by both Zelle and my bank as deducted. (too late for me). He said because the first $420 didn't come thru, the 'Request' would be a refund and would arrive in my account in 1-2 days and I need to send the money a second time. So, instead I sent $0.42 just to test that they actually did receive the first money. When he said 'sir, you only sent $0.42, I need $420' I said that I see this is a scam and I'm not going to send more money. He said in that case, he cannot help me and hung up.

I immediately called Alex, and he said he already sent the invoice, and the transmission was getting tested and would be shipped later that day. An hour later he calls (by then it was after 6pm) and said the first transmission tested bad, but for another $250 he can send me a tested good transmission with an 18 month warranty. So, for the next 1.5 hours we went round and round about not giving him more money and I want my money back and him saying over and over that in order for me to get my money back, I need to download an app from the App Store called AnyDesk, which is a remote access tool, giving someone complete control over an appliance (PC, tablet, phone). I kept refusing and so we hung up after 8pm.

He called the next couple days with the same story, either give him more money or download the app to get the refund. As of today's call, he even suggested I call my bank to get my money back, but that's not how Zelle works, so I am out $420.42. Could have been worse as I'm sure others keep sending money thinking it's a glitch in sending.

Please investigate, shut them down, get them arrested and thrown in jail. If you need more info, please contact me.

I have a copy of the invoice but can't get it uploaded thru this website.

Thank you.

Promised a used engine, said it would arrive in one business day. Made the payment waited for testing papers and tracking number never got a response. He assured me he had a business cashapp and it was totally legal, even sent me the pic of the engine. He had me send verification of payment to his whatsapp. When I got a hold of someone hours later, told me the engine testing was bad and they had another engine for $125 more. I said no just refund the money, they played on the phone after. Asked me to download quick support app to have access inside my phone. I declined and he said If I didn't he would not refund my money, I downloaded but declined him access to do anything, he asked me to go into cashapp which was method of payment (to avoid paying taxes on product he said) he wanted me to link my bank account back to cashapp, I declined because I added money to cashapp so i should not have to link it again. He persisted to sell me a newer used engine I declined he informed he was the senior manager. And he started taunting me and hanging up calling me names and verbally abusing me. I canceled the payment which was all done in the same day and now cashapp is saying they cant refund the money.

I called again, spoke with anew person he asked for my cashapp numbers I said all you need is my cashapp tag or telephone to refund the money, he said I should just cancel it, I'm getting the feeling that it's the same Arabic people doing this.

The cashapp name was R>>>l but the phone spokesperson was Henry, an Arab named H>>> should have been my first clue.
