Posted an add on Craigslist to sell a vehicle , I received a text from 347)455-9425 , I knew immediately it was a scam , I just delete the text. It's not the first time , I had one last year and gave them an address to meet me on the offer , it was at my local Police Station ... Never got a call back ! Most people know exactly what they are looking for , when they ask about your camper and it's a motorhome ? Or a vehicle and it's a race desert car ? Young teenage kids or anyone trying to sell items are usually the victims , I hope they look at these post before they act on them

A man by the name of "Officer Stewart Hall" with a super heavy Indian accent claimed he was with the State Tax Department and that I have committed a tax crime and wanted me to pay a fine. When I asked where he was calling from (because I could hear other loud voices with heavy Indian accents in the background like at a call center) he said "New York". I live in California so I knew off the bat that it was a scam. I then questioned him about the IRS and then he kept putting me on hold. When he said "Homeland Security is recording this" i said "Good! I hope they are because you are a fraud!"...then he hung up.

Woodside, NY 07075
He called at least 5 times asking to speak with my manager. He quoted my SS# and said he had the routing number of my bank (which he didn't) and was going to block my SS#, and access to my accounts. He also claimed to have my Driver's License # but he doesn't because I don't have one. When I refused to pass his call to my supervisor, he threatens to continue to call till he gets the results he wants. He has actually called two times more since I have begun this email.

I act totally surprised and then he is telling me he needs my bank account number to fix the problem.
So I say how about 555111-Screw you and I can tell he is writing it down. He then proceeds to tell me that there aren't any letters in bank account numbers which I then tell him there are in mine and to go wait by the mailbox and I'll send him a check. I then proceed to hang up on him.

I posted a Craigslist ad to sell some jewelry on the west coast. I received a text from an east coast number 508-952-0810 on 2/2/14 which I found associated with a scam online. I responded to the number telling them I found them associated with a scam and would not do business with them. I received another text from a different phone number, 302-464-6268, also located on the east, coast within 15 minutes with same verbiage as the first number. I didn't respond and have now received another inquiry on 2/10/14 from yet another east coast number 347-676-0940. I have changed my Craiglist ad to say that I will only sell local in the hopes it will stop these inquiries.
