I wanted to share my unfortunate situation. I was victim of a scam. The name of the so call company is PRIME AUTO RECON CONSIGNER . This when looking thru Craigslist They will contact you thru email, phone call, text and even show you FAKE documentation like driver license and passport. The website looks legit even have someone answering phones. Even researching their bank account which is under STANELAX PRIME AUTO RECON CONSIGNER. And have a fake office in Miami.
I know that are many other situations and other unfortunate ppl like me. But, just thinking this will prevent of someone making the same mistake I did just give some relief

Sorry to hear about your experience @Kathan, it’s unfortunate. One should always consult and check BBB when working with any company for any purpose. Hope it works out for the best for you and you get to have them locked up and rotting in jail.

Here is an email response I got regarding a Waverunner I just listed for sale yesterday. Not sure if they were just fishing for information or they were going to pay me with funds that turned out to be obtained by fraud but “cleared” long term enough to take title and possession of the Waverunner but I’d bet my Son’s college tuition this is a scam of some sort. I told him / her if felt like a scam to me in my response. I allow stated that “if you want to buy this ski, you will have to pay me and pick it up in person on the same day.”



Hi,

Thank you so much for your response, I've been working really long weeks at work so I won't be able to meet with you before purchase, but am ok with the price and condition as shown on the advert, I'll proceed in issuing a check to you and when you receive the payment and it clears, I will make arrangement for pickup. So get back to me with the details below asap.

Full name :
Physical Address (Only,not po box):
City, State, Zip:
Your cell Phone Number:
Deal Price:

As soon as this is provided, payment will be overnight to you through UPS next day delivery and I will let you know the tracking number of the package. I will also add an additional $50 for keeping other buyers off till my check gets to you, also please delete the posting or mark as sold.

Thanks and I hope we handle this in good faith while waiting to hearing from you

Right, likely overpayment scam. Here is agreed price + $1500, please pay the $1500 from your funds to ScamAccompliceShipping. Later check was no good and you are out the shipping "payment"
