Here’s a reminder that Craigslist cars are the best kind of Craigslist cars. They’re used, they have lots of miles on them, they’re inexpensive, and they’re cheap.

CAR

Craigslist is an excellent online resource for people who have a car or other item they wish to sell privately. It’s also great for advertising homes for rent or sale, employment opportunities or services that you offer to the public. Many successful deals have been made through the site for both buyers and sellers, but as with any good thing, scammers have realized the opportunities to use Craigslist as a means of tricking innocent victims out of their money. It’s still a good place to conduct buying and selling transactions, but you have to be careful and make sure that the person you’re dealing with isn’t a rip-off artist. Here are five money scams to watch out for on Craigslist Springfield, MO.

A 16-year-old girl tried to buy a car that she found advertised on Craigslist. She was interested in a 2003 Honda Accord advertised and responded through email. She was informed that the owner of the car was deceased and that the car was being kept in a shipping container. The so-called seller gave her a phone number from California and she was instructed to send a Money Gram to Springfield Missouri to buy the car. When she did, she discovered that she was scammed out of the amount of $1,530 and she promptly reported the scam to the sheriff’s office. It took her two years to work and save up her money for the car, only to have it stolen from her. (Source: moneyinc.com)

SALE

Real estate scams have become so bad on Craigslist Springfield that a local real estate company is warning people to be wary. They state that they post legitimate ads on Craigslist Springfield, MO but there are scammers who are duplicating the original ad and changing the rental amounts and the contact information with phony ads including pictures and information about the homes. Most of the time they are unaware that the ads have been hijacked until someone shows up at the home to move in, only to find out that the money they wired for the deposit and first month’s rent has been stolen by scammers who are long gone. This is happening more and more. Scammers also use listings of homes that are for sale, and they change the terms and often offer them for a rate that is lower than the average rental amount so people think they are getting a good deal.
