On 6/30/2017 I had went to craigslist and posted a car for sale and was contacted the next day via text by a man named Andrew Cluse. He said he would send $1,720.00 to my pay-pal account for payment of car and he would be sending shipping fee included in the total amount.
I got what I thought was an email from pay pal explaining that Andrew Cluse had sent said amount to my pay-pal account and release of the funds was pending because pay-pal needed me to send the shipping fee out of my pocket.
The email states that the shipping fee would be $550.00. So I went to the closest western union and sent $500.00 and it cost me $40.00 to send it to a man named Terrance Taylor in Stone Mountain, GA.
So I sent the money to this man and he never replied to my emails or text but I got conformation from western union that someone named Terrance Taylor had picked up the money in Duluth, GA. Upon receiving the conformation I logged into my pay-pal account and it showed a 0 balance with no pending transactions.
I called pay-pal and was informed that I had been scammed and to contact the sheriffs office to make a report. I made the report on 7/4/2017 with deputies of Lumpkin County Sheriffs office.
