DEERFIELD, Ill. - Nov. 6, 2013 - PRLog -- Advance fee schemes are used by con artists to trick a victim into paying money in anticipation of receiving something of much greater value. A few good examples are a loan, contract, investment, big ticket item or even a gift. The problem is that the victim receives little or absolutely nothing in return, as they were promised. This has been occurring all over the web and especially on the well known selling/buying/trading websites like Craigslist and others.

The most common scam on Craigslist is the selling of vehicles. Let’s just say for instance you are selling your vehicle for $12,200. Soon enough you get an email from someone who is very interested in your vehicle. They go into telling you how much they want and love your vehicle and then here it comes, the guidelines for purchasing the vehicle. They start to tell you that the vehicle is actually for a client of theirs so they need to first run it by them. They tell you the purpose of the first email was to make sure that all the information was correct and that the vehicle was still available. In a subsequent email, they state “I'm happy to inform you that the client has instructed me to proceed with the transaction”. Excitement pours in, you sold your vehicle! They tell you the payment is on the way and in the form of cashier's check for an amount of $19,800. Wait a minute! You sold the car for $12,200, not $19,800. You ask about the discrepancy and they respond telling you that the check is a refund payment of a cancelled order, made by them earlier. Due to the companies policy, this payment has to be made out in that amount because the company’s policy allows only a refund payment on one cashiers check. Granted, you may be confused by what they tell you and it may seem legit, but its not and Banks don’t allow this type of check processing. The amount sent is expected to cover both the shipping expense and the cost of the vehicle. However you are required to deduct the cost of your vehicle which noted above we said $12,200 and when the payments gets to you, refund $7,600 to the clients shipper. Once the shipper comes for the car and you hand them the check (for $7,600) that’s the last time you see your money. You’re now a victim of an advanced fee scheme. By the time your bank realizes that the initial check of $19,800 is fake your $7,600 is long gone and someone made out with great payday!
