LTC David Thomson SCAM

Scam Scam Scam

Using the same wording, a scam now being used by the email address:
Davidths1@msn.com
and the images at:

See all the ads using that email address:

This same scammer used the name and email address:
LTC Rodney Maribel  rodney11bel@gmail.com
for a scam involving a Subaru.
Notice the idiot said the Subaru was a "Double Cab"?
He forgot to remove that from his email template.
Hello,
This 1999 Subaru Impreza RS Double Cab, with 147,000 miles, runs and drives excellent. Hasn't been involved in any accident. It has no leaks or drips and does not smoke at all, slightly used in 100% working and looking conditions with a clear title. I bought it when i was serving in Naval Base Point Loma, in San Diego, CA and now I am in London, UK.
I have dropped my price to $2,300 usd (purchase price) since this is an Urgent Sale! and I need to sell it before March 20, when I will be deployed in Iraq with my platoon replacing the troops scheduled to come home.
If you're interested to conclude this purchase in a timely manner email me your; Full Name and Shipping Address to open a case with eBay they will contact you to explain the entire procedure. You'll receive important guidelines and payment instructions from them.
The financial part will be managed by them, which means that you will have a 5 days inspection period before committing to buy the vehicle.
In this way both, buyer and seller are 100% covered during the steps of this transaction.

This is a current scam running on Craigslist.
The scammer is using the email addresses:
David Thomson david38son@gmail.com
eBay support@online-protection-motors.com
I am quite sure there are many more email addresses being used.
Here are images he is storing for use with his scams:
2006 Honda Element EX-P 4WD
2007 Kubota Tractor, B7510 With Loader
2002 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner
http://picasaweb.google.com/113999741168122103953

See the big list of spoof sites here:
http://netscammers.blogspot.com/2010/04/spoof-sites.html

NEVER use instant money services like Western Union or MoneyGram.
Once the transfer is picked up you can't get your money back.

Remember, eBay will NOT guarantee a transaction made on Craigslist.
Why would they?
eBay and Craigslist are basically at war with each other.

Hello,

Please take a few moments and read my email carefully, I know it is long, but I will explain all the details about the truck and the transaction.
I do a special training program each day and I'm not allowed to make phone calls whenever I want. We`ll have to stick to email for now as this is the only way I can communicate.

At the moment I'm stationed in London UK. making final preparations before deploying to Iraq with the U.S. Convoy
The truck is already at our Military Logistic Department in Point Loma, San Diego, CA, crated and ready to go. The Logistic Department will deliver the truck to your home. The shipping is free for you. Since the truck is in a military base, with no access you can not go there and take it, only the Logistic Department can deliver it, because the truck is in their custody.
Shipping may take anywhere between 2 to 4 business days depending on the destination. All documents you need for ownership, manuals and bill of sale will be provided along with the truck.

For the payment I would like to use eBay as a third party. They will keep your money into a protection account until you get the truck and will release it to me after inspection period is over and you agree to keep the truck. So, this is not a blind transaction, you can see the truck before committing to buy and to eliminate any concerns you will have 5 days to inspect the truck . If you decide not to keep it eBay will refund you the money, no questions asked, and shipping back will be my concern. I think this is more than fair for both of us.

I'll start the official procedure, and eBay will contact you about this. If you are interested in buying it just mail me back with:
- Your Full Name - Required by eBay (You'll receive important guidelines + instructions from them.)
- Your Shipping Address and Phone Number - Required by the Logistic Department (They will call you with delivery/pickup instructions 1 day ahead so you can communicate what time schedule work best for your to receive the truck)

Again I want to point out that because I am going to Iraq this sale is my top priority and I am looking after a fast transaction, with no delays. That is why I decided to lower the price, to avoid wasting time with negotiations and find a buyer as soon as possible.

Thanks, hope to do business with you soon!

Hello ,
I spoke with eBay Safe Pay Insurer and I think they already send you the notifications of the payment to finish this deal with me. If you receive the notifications from them, please make the payment of $ ( $ 2.300 ) to eBay Safe Pay agent name and address and send the info to them so they can check the transfer and immediately they will start the shipping to you.
The truck will be crated, will have an insurance and will be delivered at your door without you being charged one penny more. As soon as I have the confirmation that you made the payment into the eBay Safe Pay agent name and address , They will ship the truck ,along with the truck, you will receive all the documents that I have for the truck - the title (witch is issued in US, is clear of any liens and I have it in hand).
Let me know when will you be able to complete the payment.
Lookig forward to hear from you!
Check out also your junk folder some notifications may go
there.


PS: PLEASE CONFIRM IF YOU RECEIVED THE eBay NOTIFICATION. CHECK ALSO
YOUR JUNK/SPAM EMAIL FOLDER. IF YOU DIDN'T RECEIVED IT, I WILL ASK TO
BE SENT AGAIN .

(If the email is in your Junk/Spam folder its for a reason. It IS Junk/Spam and you have a good email provider!!!)

Great post.

Perhaps I can just add to this that the best way to guard against being ripped off by online sales or auctions of any kind, Craigslist and eBay included—and whether seller or buyer—is to use a *bona fide* online escrow company. Especially for pricier items like antiques, jewelry and autos. Although it does add some cost, it takes the uncertainty out of the transaction, and that’s a small price to pay for peace of mind.

For my money, the best bona fide online escrow (and there seems to be ten fraudulent escrow sites for every bona fide one) is probably Escrow.com (http://escrow.com). In fact, it’s the only one that eBay recommends, and is the only online escrow company that is licensed to provide escrow services all across the United States.

Take care,

Ulf Wolf
