My son bought a used car on the internet from a website called Trader Publishing. He paid for it with a moneygram. It seems that the website has been shut down and they pocketed my son's money and absconded. Do any of you have knowledge of this type of scam?
These kinds of scams are all over the internet. Sorry he fell for it. Never use moneygram -- Stick with Paypal. eBay motors is probably the safest place to buy online aside from a licensed retailer.
Thanks for that advice. We'll be better prepared to cope with the internet jungle next time. I remember the first time I got a phishing email that put up a perfect replica of my bank website. The only problem was that the URL in the address bar read Latinamusica rather than Chase Bank. I became suspicious when they asked for my social security number and stopped. Caveat emptor! Caveat surfer!
