The name I got from the seller  was Clayton Rupert. I did a reverse caller ID and got the name Shawn Smith from Santa Clarita. 

 

The vins from the 73 inka and 76 jadegrun that I bought from him

Really sorry to hear that people that do this still exist in our communities. 

 

How did you pay him? Could be a way to claim fraud maybe...more details will help us try to help you rectify this "shitsuation."

Didn't we have a Clayton on here in the old days???

Hit the archives. Maybe you can see if its the same guy and read all his posts to dig out some personal info he may have posted.

 

Don't feel offended all you Claytons on here now.. Just that I remember one from the old days.  

 

Bad deal BCThomas.

almost impossible to reverse a wire transfer once completed - bad news

What exactly happened? 

 

I would think the banks involved would be interested in knowing, and possibly assisting law enforcement....

 

Edit: I'm not certain conflicting phone lookup info is particularly damning....

 

Good luck,

My bank is working on it and sounded optimistic but I’m going to assume that I’ve been burned. He seemed like a nice honest guy that knew 02s well.

Les always was the data, numbers guy.  Always knew how many. What n where they were.

How ya doing Les.  

 

I hope all goes well with this BC. I checked also. It's going to be rough. The banks aren't liable. They have not a vested interest nor are they insured for this. Hopefully they will take interest in this as to prevent future scams in their branch though. They will file this or tell you to file it with the FTC but that is just letting them know you were scammed and they can log it in for their statistics and awareness.  

There is two ways my Sister told me but it is such a long shot that when you do pressure them then they get defensive and will most likely stop working with you.  

 

Your best bet it to work with them and don't get frustrated if it seems like they aren't doing enough as they don't have to do anything in the end. Hopefully this Clayton isn't that smart and left some traces as to who he really is and they track him.  

 

Good luck Bud.  Don't let it eat at you. Very hard lesson learned.

There is a Shawn Smith in Santa Clarita via a Facebook profile, but a quick look doesn't indicate anything telling.

BCThomas. Are you contacting FleaBay and these Autotraders to see who is paying  these Ads?
