I just recently sent an e-mail to a subject that was selling a John Deere 3020 advertised as having new paint, one rear hydraulic outlet with 15.5.8 rears in fair condition,wide front,3pt hitch and power steering. In the e-mail I only requested information on the tractor and if they were willing to work on the price. I received a e-mail from St.Tr.T<>

In the e-mail the suject stated that he had the shipping company ready to ship the tractor and that all I had to do was sent a money gram in the amount of $2,500.00 to the shipping co. in the name of a relative such as father,mother or brother and then he would send scanned papers with a tracking number. Once I received the tractor and was happy with the purchase, I was to change the money gram into the sellers name. When I checked the e-mail sent to the seller it was different from the reply e-mail that I received. I went back through the tractors for sale on YT and discovered that the ad had been pulled. I can not remember exactly were that ad was placed from but I believe the tractor was advertised from Michigan. If you have read my profile on YT you know that I'am a police officer. I'm currently investigating the same type of scam that was used on one of our residents at e-bay for a vehicle were the buyer sent the seller over $10,000 and the buyer did not receive the vehicle. The person that is advertising this tractor will more thay likely repost this ad at some point and they certainly fit the profile of a scam artist. Respectfully,

[quote="Joe lV"](reply to post at 14:54:06 04/10/09) [/quote What wedsite was he on when this incident happened. The first suggestion that I have is to recontact the goverment website that you first reported the scam to, its my experience that you have to stay after them so you don't fall between the cracks. The second thing to do is to contact your fathers bank and advise them of what happened to your father. The other thing is to contact the wedsite security section and advise them of the scam that was effected against your father. I'm not due back to work until Monday, when I return I'll check the case report and look to see what other avenues you have to possibly bring this matter before the courts.

With all due respect, these type of cases are very hard to investigate. The more investigative units the better. I want you to know that I will help you as much as possible

Thanks for this information. Maybe you could help me out? My father got burned by a similar situation about a year ago. About $3500 he was taken for. I still have all of the correspondence. Emails phone numbers etc. I emailed the govt's internet scam site to report the events and never heard a thing back. Feel free to email me. Thanks. Joel
