The issue in GetHuman-machanic's own words
purchase a Iphone X ... HI, last week I went on craigslist, looking to see if I could find a Iphone X, I came upon one for $***, thinking thats a good buy, I emailed the person that had it listed, and that i was interested. The person responded with pics and told me that the phone was in excellent condition,I said ok thats awesome im coming into town soon, we can arrange meeting in person. The person then said that she was in a military base and cant leave, and that she was a member of ebay buyer protection program. * The email she provided had a female name and the pics also showed female fingers, thats why im saying she* *but it could be a male as well* She then wanted my ebay account info, and my mailing address and phone number, which I provided to her at that point. Not long after, Ebay motors emailed me with invoice and order number, as well as information on how to pay. Which now I think she just made that page up, saying it was ebay motors, but it never was. Evereything looked legit at that point, on the invoice page it also said,that I would have * days to return item, and get my money back, if I didnt like the iphone. I followed the instructions that the invoice page told me to do, and went into our local CVS, and bought * $*** dollar ebay gift cards, totaling $*** dollars. I scratched of the protecting on the back of the ebay gift cards, and then emailed the back of the ebay gift cards and the receipt, to the the ebay motors email. She emailed me back saying the payment went through, and that the money was in a ebay trusted account, untill I received and liked my phone. Not long after I received another email saying I need to send $*** more dollars for shipping insurance. I knew then and there that I had got scammed and I cried and cried. I have received no Iphone, my *** dollars are gone, I called ebay, they said they cant help me, it was done outside ebay, so I have no place to go but to you nice people. How another human can do that to another human is beyond me, it is so sad, thinking about it, I just want to cry and cry. It would mean sooo much to me if you could help me out of this mess, I would sooo really appreciate that, please try your best, please please please. her email was K*****@***.com.
