I found a Kawasaki mule on Craigslist and responded. I received a reply from Mathew Colson saying he was out of town handling daughters wedding and had The Trading Boutique(TTB) to pick up mule and they had in a storage area. The Trading Boutique was to handle everything with a 10 day inspection period.

He included a link to TTB.

I checked TTB on Internet and found numerous locations of people telling how good the transaction went with TTB.

Everything seemed on the up and up. Therefore I wired $5500.00 to Barclays Bank PLC, 61 Westow Hill , upper Norwood, London SE19 ITS, UK. the TBB provided a number and I was able to follow transaction by entering this Number. They showed payment pending, payment received, shipping between Mar. 4 and 7. By this time I realized I had been fraud and confronted them. They immediately removed my access to their site. That was end of. No Kawasaki Mule and out $5500.00.

I am very cautious when buying items on Internet but boy did I fall for this.

"  I am very cautious when buying items on Internet  "

   You weren't the least bit cautious in this case.  The text below is on EVERY craigslist post (for good reason).

" Avoid scams, deal locally! Do NOT wire funds (Western Union, Moneygram). Beware cashier checks, money orders, shipping, non-local buyers/sellers. "

  If you ignore any of the above, you're almost guaranteed to be scammed.  If you take their advice, chances of being scammed are minimal.
