Review updated:

I got involved in fraud when trying to buy a car on Craig's List. Lost 3000 dollars, as the seller said she was selling her vehicle through Amazon and I was asked to pay with Amazon gift cards.See Top 10 Worst Companies in Montauk, NYI loaded 3000 dollars on Amazon gift cards and emailed the codes to Amazon, which turned out to be a fraud. The car that I wanted to by was listed on your website.
Wondering if you could help to solve a crime or offer any compensation, as the crime started on your website.

    It didn't occur to you something was off? Amazon doesn't sell used cars. Call Amazon and tell them about this. Ask them to cancel the gift cards and any pending orders.

    Craigslist lists what to do to keep safe from scams such as this:
    Avoiding Scams

    Deal locally, face-to-face —follow this one rule and avoid 99% of scam attempts.

    Do not extend payment to anyone you have not met in person.
    Beware offers involving shipping - deal with locals you can meet in person.
    Never wire funds (e.g. Western Union) - anyone who asks you to is a scammer.
    Don't accept cashier/certified checks or money orders - banks cash fakes, then hold you responsible.
    Transactions are between users only, no third party provides a "guarantee".
    Never give out financial info (bank account, social security, paypal account, etc).
    Do not rent or purchase sight-unseen—that amazing "deal" may not exist.
    Refuse background/credit checks until you have met landlord/employer in person.
    Who should I notify about fraud or scam attempts?
