It happened to me but instead of Western Union,it was a BANK wire transfer to WELLS FARGO BANK,so beware,tried to stop wire transfer within hours,forget it.My bank I signed saying their not responsable and was told it was a special account at Wells Fargo where they would not remove funds from that account.Told to go after the seller but when it is a forged document who do you go after.

Despite the thread title, Craigslist did not rip off the OP. Neither did eBay. They wouldn't ask for a MoneyGram payment. MoneyGram didn't rip off the OP either (though their system does enable massive fraud).

A scammer convinced the OP to wire money. This could just as easily have happened at Western Union.

The bets advice is not to send money via MoneyGram or Western Union to complete strangers. That's especially true for internet commerce.

Sorry this happened..

AUTHOR: Tmm33 - (U.S.A.)

But with as many scams that there are out there , never send any money !!! They are going to keep doing this until we wake up... It's terrible that people are losing their hard earned money to others because they do not think first. (Been there done that) . NEVER send money that way, EVER.
