Solon Resident Reports Craigslist Ad Scam

A 36 year old female Solon resident reported to the Solon Police Department that she contacted an individual from a Craigslist advertisement about a vehicle for sale.  She was told that the transaction could be completed through Ebay and received an email from “Ebay” which instructed her to send $3750.00 to an escrow account until she decided to buy the vehicle, which she did.  She then faxed a confirmation of intent to purchase and received an email stating the vehicle would be delivered, which it was not.  She contacted Ebay and was told that there was no record of such a transaction, and it was likely a scam. The detective bureau is reviewing this case.
