Total money lost $2,500
Type of a scam Online Purchase

My husband responded to an ad ( around 07/06/2018) on craigslist for a used winniebago minnie 2005. He called the phone # in the ad. The person asked him to make the payment in Amazon gift cards. Subsequently he received a receipt via email (the email looked like it came from Amazon and had Amazon's logo). He never received the promised RV or any of related paperwork for inspection.

The phone # listed on the ad does not work (i.e., no one answers the phone).

My husband then went filed a incident report with the local police station .

We would like the money paid to be refunded.

Someone called me from (216) 352-6872 number. He told me that I am qualified for a refund for computer maintenance service I received in 2017 because the service company has been closed. He further said he is from BBB. But in order to refund my service fee I paid in 2017, he needs to get into my computer because it needs to be done via online. I asked send me an e-mail in detail or send me a refund check. But he said it cannot be done that way and it has to be through online. I immediately felt that something is not right; so I told him to keep the money himself and hung up my phone.

Type of a scam Credit Cards

On Friday, January 4, 2019 at 3:40 pm EST, I received an automated greeting telling me that I have credit cards and that I can lower the interest rates by pressing 9. With no intentions, because I have one interest free credit card, I was curious to know where they get their information. Got a live person (male) on the phone and I asked, "which credit card are you talking about?" He said, " any of them." Then, I said, "Which bank?" Then, he said, "let me have your card number" Then, I said take my name off the call list. He said, "no" Then I said, "let me speak with your supervisor" He said, 'No, let me have your card number so I can help you" Then I said, " I will give my card number to your supervisor" He said, "no" then disconnected.

Type of a scam Phishing

My phone number is being used in a phishing scam. The remote device calls someone (not contacts of mine) multiple times in a row late at night, but my number is displayed as the number dialing. To be clear I am not making any of these calls and my call log has no outbound calls. The person calls back concerned that I need help-it is unclear what the caller is asking of them since they missed the call. ATT is unable to do anything to prevent my number from being displayed, but are aware of this scam.

Listed car on *** Contacted by Karen -- my father would love this car

Karen asked how her father could contact me

I provided email

The father sent a couple of innocent emails

He followed with an email requesting use of https://www.carhistorydetails.com to qualify for his loan.

I send *** instead which was selected by me (testing)

Got another email insisting I use https://www.carhistorydetails.com (An indirect way to ask for money)

Very obvious it was a scam at this point.

Call is a recorded message. options are to press 1 to speak to someone or stay on line to hear message. I missed the call so I had a voicemail.

Caller does not state name, name of company or any other identifying information. Calling for someone that used me as a contact. States the following: there is a legal investigation, and it is in my best interest to cooperate before final processing of legal documents being forwarded to my local summons division. She says I may become a person of interest if they cannot locate the person they are actually looking for. Want me to call to discuss my involvement in their investigation. To avoid processing I or the person they are actually looking for must call their office today. I called, it just rings! I don't know where they are calling from(city, state or country).

While the recorded voice is different from other messages I have received, the MO is the same. Other numbers I have received pretty much the same message from are 614-335-9330, 614-335-9335, 833-835-9700, 833-792-9220, dating back to July 2018. I block one number and they call from another. The one time I answered the person was very rude and threatening!
