Thread: Yahoo Auto

    Yahoo Auto

    To clarify: Yahoo Auto Web site did all they said they would do. I didn't sell my car, but that's not Yahoo's fault. I have no complaints about Yahoo Auto.

    However, it is a scammer's play gorund--beware. Below is the latest twist on transfer of funds to purchase a car---don't fall for it.

    Re: Yahoo Auto

    Just an FYI, I have also received an e-mail regarding the car that I am selling on Yahoo Autos, my e-mail is from a Martin Bank but he shares the same address as this Duncan Wagner. He is apparently a procurement agent from England who's client is buying a car for a cousin in Canada that just got married. Is this just a scam for money? Do they actually want the car? How should I handle this? Please, someone tell me. . . thanks ([email protected])

    Re: Yahoo Auto

    I too have just heard from this Martin Bank with the same addy, with the same story about a gift for a cousin in Canada, so I'm willing to bet it IS definitely a scam. I'll paste the most recent message I received from him just tonight:

    Greetings
    Thanks for your response.I am a procurement agent
    based in England and my client whom i am representing
    is also in England. My client informed me that he is
    buying the car to present as a gift to the cousin who
    recently married in Canada . This means that the car
    will be shipped to Canada.
    THE PRICE IS FIRM AT $8,500 USD..CONFIRM
    Attach at least three recent pics( include the
    interior) of the vehicle so that i will foward it to
    my client for evaluation,The pics will make my
    discussion with the buyer easier and faster.
    Hope all the documents are complete...?
    Any accident history......?
    Are you the first owner of the vehicle.....?
    Why do you want to sell the vehicle....?
    My client is responsible for my commission,shipping
    and any handling bills.

    This is a scam. I'm just glad that I found this site, although I know enough to not have opened an account and given the information to someone else. I'm just mad because we really do want to sell this car. Well, good luck selling yours.

    Re: Yahoo Auto

    I am so glad I found this site. I had a feeling that the email was a little wierd and decided to Google the guy's name and address- sure enough your comments came up and there was the identical address and same scam- procurement guy from England wants to buy my Saab for a client's son in Canada. I am glad it did not get further than that- I did respond to the guy with a digital pic of the car but no personal info- I hope it will end at that! Thank you for posting your info on this site- I could have been had- I wanted to sell the car so I am disappointed. By the way, the scammer has changed his name to John Brooks, same address 67 St Marys Mansions Little Venice in England. I guess Duncan Wagner and Martin Bank are all roommates! The poor writing was the tip off... "doing a successful business with you nicely"... what is that!?

    Thanks to you all!- Dennis

    Here is his last emails... **************************************

    Thanks for your swift response and Pls attach atleast two recent pics of the vehicle for further evaluation.
    Attention; Please be advise that the vehicle will be shipped to CANADA because my client's son is the one who is going to make use of it over there and not here in England.
    I am a procurement agent here in England.
    PLS CONFIRM THE FOLLOWING ..........BELOW.
    THE PRICE IS FIRM AT $xxxxxUSD..
    Any accident history ........?

    Re: Yahoo Auto

    Well this is interesting because I had found a car to buy off of yahoo autos also based in U.K. He told me to send the money via western union and the agent i would pick up the money and a wait my confimation of the vehicle. It was through a third party squaretrade where the agent was supposedly through.I never received the vehicle. Now I am trying to get my money back from squaretrade and it is a nightmare. You acn read my story under howenstein316 on this website. I unfortunately went forward with sending money and now I am in this predicament.

    squaretrade only handles transactions done through ebay. That was already the red flag.

    It must be getting awfully crowded at 67 St. Marys Mansions :confused: (by the way-has anyone bothered to check out this address). Again thank you for the site and the warnings. I thought that it sounded a little strange and so I googled
    (is that a word) the guy and got this site.

    Re: Not just Yahoo Autos!!!--"Procurement Agent"

    Your "procurement agent" sounds a lot like mine that found me on CarsDirect.com. The Cars Direct customer service person I spoke to thinks the script is circulated amongst/sold to scam artists.

    Here are the progression of my emails from "Maxwell Cole":


    Hello. I have a client who wants to buy your vehicle
    listed.What is the last price?Attach at least 2
    pics(interior also) for evaluation.Is there any
    accident history?Why do you want to sell the
    vehicle?Hope allthe documents are complete?

    Attention; Please be advise that the vehicle will be shipped to CANADA because my client's son is the one who is going to
    make use of it over there and not here in England.

    I am a procurement agent here in England.

    PLS CONFIRM THE FOLLOWING ..........BELOW.

    THE PRICE IS FIRM AT $48,7200USD.. (but I only listed my car for $39,900)

    Any accident history ........?

    Are you the first owner of the Vehicle.........?

    I hope all the documents are complete...........?

    Why do you want to sell the vehicle...............???????? (I sent all this information in response to his previous email already!)

    I emailed Maxwell to give me a call. If he has the nerve to do so (which I doubt) I will surely give him a swift and mercilous tongue lashing and unleash the Chicago Police Dept dectective unit upon him afterwards. Scumbag scammers who do this kind of thing should pay the price!

    Re: Yahoo Auto

    I recently listed my auto on www.carsdirect.com and PROMPTLY obtained a reply from [email protected]. The message was almost identical to those posted, here, on this web-site.

    I thought something was "not quite right." Why would somebody in England, buy an automobile in Arizona, and then have it shipped to Ontario? I sent photo's of the car.

    This morning a return e-mail said, "everything is in place" to sell the automobile. I, then, found this web-site. Contacted my local police agency AND the Arizona branch of the Secret Service. I was informed that they, in Arizona, receive about 5-7 phone-calls/day regarding this scam. It originates in Nigeria--and the Nigerian government has refused to assist the United States in ending the scams; thus, the Secret Service removed their Nigernian field office. For, now, there is nothing to do except document and do not fall for this scam.

    I was informed by the US Secret Service agent, that, the check that is mailed to buy the auto is fake; it goes to the bank and then, several days later, the bank learns it is a fraudulent check--and, hopefully, by then, the seller hasn't sent to the criminal a return check. . .

    I am glad I found this web-site.

    Re: Yahoo Auto

    Just an FYI to everyone - they've moved on to vacation rental properties! For the sake of putting up text against which other can check their own suspected fraud e-mail messages, I'll post the e-mails I received here:

    Hello,

    I have a sponsored client from Canada who wants to spend 30 days in your Place prior to a missionary retreat which they have in the state and will like to stay in your place for the periods he will stay.He is coming with his wife and will like to rent your place from Saturday 30th September arrival date to Monday 30th October departure date .

    Please let me know the total cost for this 30 days stay including security deposit,cleaning and other necessary fees or in a situation whereby this whole 30days will not be available consecutively,youre also required to state the periods you have available within this time range and the total amount to be paid.

    Please state out clearly all the fees required to be paid for this 30 days stay and also give me the total amount so that your check payment will be delivered to with immediate effect via courier service.

    Please note: you are required to state clearly the fees he will be required to pay and sum them all up in total.And remember that the arrival date is 30th September.2006 and departure date is 30th October 2006.

    Get back to me with the dates that are free for reservation ,so that we can book reservations for them immediately.

    Thank you and have a nice day.

    Regards,
    Nathan

    And here's the other message I got:

    Thanks for your assistance so far in this transaction. I'm happy to inform you that I have concluded with my client, Pastor Jim Robinson and he has asked me to proceed with the transaction. He has further asked me to inform you that this vacation is being sponsored by the church committee members on behalf of him and his wife Mrs Carolyn Robinson.

    Already, a cashier's check of { $7,000 } has been mapped by the church committee members to cover his expenses on accommodation and cars they will use during their stay in a hotel whose quality of service according to my client is not up to standard.

    Though he has confided in me that the reason for turning down the hotel arrangement earlier made by the church committee members was because of their exorbitant cost of lodging compared with the quality of service they have to render which according to him is not up to standard. Therefore he and his wife decided to rent an apartment and stay for a while since they're not used to using hotels.Besides, he would like to assist some of his colleagues that do not have the privilege of being sponsored on this trip, by providing them with cars which they'll use during their stay with part of his remaining funds.

    I have therefore been mandated by my client to forward your payment information to the church for them to make out this payment in your name/business name so that he will be sure that he has been booked for the periods agreed upon.

    Pls note, My client explained to me that why you are to receive this payment in this amount is because the money being used for the payment was a donation made to the church by a christain organisation in support of his accommodation cost and so the church has decided to forward your payment information directly to the sponsors so that they can see where their money is going into.

    He also told me that he will be traveling to the states today for an important Evangelical conference meeting they have and would also like to make arrangement with a car hiring company which will provide them with cars that will come pick them up at the airport on their arrival day and also the cars they will use throughout their stay.

    PLS NOTE; When you receive check payment, you are expected to deduct the cost of your service which is { $2,300 } including securoty deposit and cleaning fee and send down the remaining balance of { $4,700} to the car rental company which he's going to contract for their services.

    As I mentioned earlier, the accommodation is only for my client, Pastor Jim Robinson and his wife.

    Please confirm the above and provide your payment information for your payment to be delivered to you via courier service.

    Please provide the following:
    1-LEGAL NAME IN FULL..............
    2.CONTACT ADDRESS.....................
    3.PHONE NUMBER(S)...........................

    I will be expecting your mail with full payment information so that we can proceed. Thanks.

    Kind Regards,
    Nathan.
