Victim Location 60714
Total money lost $500
Type of a scam Phishing

Introduced self asking about an object that was being sold on FB Marketplace. Was insistent and quick to message back. Sent the agreed upon payment ahead of the pickup time, but told victim it wouldn't go through unless they had "Zelle Business". The cost to upgrade was $500, which they payed for upfront on the condition that victim pay them back. This is the honest person's greatest folly. They WILL get you with this if you are a nice person, just like the victim. Do NOT pay back any money.

The money never came in but victim did receive and email "from Zelle" that said to refund the person the excess money to settle the business account. The email looked fairly legit, in fact the victim only noticed after sending the money back that they had misspelled one word: The "Wells" in Wells Fargo. After that it was a quick google search to find out this is a very common scam on FB market place. Victim chalked it up to their first time using FB Marketplace and being unsure of the typical social standards of the app (they really really just do not use social media, especially Facebook), but someone else doesn't have to be so unlucky.

See attached pictures for reference. They include the what the emails looked like and who they were from (and who they were intended to be sent to). Note the uneven spacing, the misspelled word, and the contact info that doesn't match in any usual way. The Zelle logos look fairly legit too, even though in one of the emails it was merely attached, not embedded into the email itself. Note also that the contact person the victim was supposed to send ADDITIONAL funds to (another $1,150.00 USD) was someone they had never spoken to or seen before then.
