Some scammers will sell complete season tickets for a sporting team or concert series. The seller will buy airline tickets with a credit card, then list the tickets for sale.
As soon as they have a buyer, they will cancel the sale which renders the tickets worthless. And chances are that person will never be seen again. Anyone buying a big-ticket item online wants to know the transaction will be safe. Out of that worry were born escrow service sites, which are companies that will legally hold money until both parties in the transaction are satisfied. It can be a great way to feel comfortable dealing with the buying and selling of big-ticket items.
When negotiating a deal for a large-ticket item, the seller will reassure the buyer that their money will be safe until the item is received. They deposit the funds into an account on the site and then wait for their item to arrive. But it never does. It was a phishing site — one that is set up to look just like a legitimate business. Many times these scam artists will mimic a well-respected site in an effort to make the buyer trust it.
And too many times it works. The seller will be out their money and have nothing to show for it. Looking for a job is tough enough, but if you get scammed in your job search, it can be downright disheartening. Some scammers post jobs for nannies and babysitters, targeting the young and inexperienced. They generally offer a nice salary, but not outrageous enough to ring any alarm bells. These instructions might be things like buying groceries for the new house, taking out an amount for their salary, and paying the rent to the new landlord.
The employee, who thought she had landed a great job, is now out the money and on the line for all of it. Of course, the received payments will bounce or be fraudulent and the person will be out any money they wired. Job scams often revolve around an employer who asks the employee to wire money somewhere.
This is always a scam. Still, many scam artists have devised a way to make a buyer feel comfortable by making them believe the purchase has been approved and is protected by Craigslist.
A potential buyer will receive an official looking email from Craigslist saying they have researched the seller and approved the transaction as safe. Next, it will guide the buyer through the steps to complete the purchase, such as sending money.
If you get an email like this, the seller is definitely a scammer and you should report them to Craigslist so they can remove the listing. Buying and selling on Craigslist can be an awesome experience.
As long as you pay attention to the details of each transaction and stay aware of the signs that alert you to possible scams, you should be fine.
