Speaking of the craigslist used car scam Houston Police are warning people not to fall for it after 4 people in the Houston area already have.
They say the suspects contact the victim via e-mail, posing as a representative of the company eBay.inc and provide instructions to the victims as to how to make payment arrangements for the vehicle purchased.
Of course those instructions are to wire the money using MoneyGram and then the scammers make off with the cash.
As far as I know MoneyGram is a legit service but much like craigslist it seems to be a useful tool for scam artists.
Remember kids, never wire the money.
