Comment on Buying or Selling? An Investigation into Craigslist Scams by Cheryl.
Bruce Lambert has become Greg Lambert. firstname.lastname@example.org He also uses Steve Rothrock as “Agents Name” for Rapid Parcel, in Bolton England!
Greg claims he was transfered for work to Vancouver. Works for Asus and got the laptop advertised on Craigslist through his work at a discount. Pics of item were shot in a home. Verbage is the same as above scams, word for word. Check it out:
I was checking for a way to make the exchange from here to you in the US and I came across this option, which is a very good way to make this exchange.
It’s provides by a company called RapidParcel and it will help us with this transaction.
They seem designed specifically for internet transactions, they handle both the payment and delivery part of this transaction. They seem pretty nice and trustworthy and they provide a service that we can use for our exchange.
The link below is from RapidParcel website and it explains their procedure. Please check the link and the procedure and let me know if you agree to the terms.
With this procedure RapidParcel will deliver the laptop to you, receive your payment and I will receive the payment for the laptop only after you instruct them to do so.
I will pay the shipping.
Let me know if we can proceed.
Odd to use a UK company, convert to British Pounds? Was at Western Union reading form, said no refund even if a fraud. Glad I bailed out. Thanks for your review here to confirm this scam.
