    I have recently got into a £2000 debt which needs to be repaid ASAP. Basically, this is how it goes:
    I was surfing on the Web one day and i came to this site called craigslist, not knowing anything about this site. I saw a post saying 5 iphones 6 for only £450! I leapt at this listing as I thought that it was my way to making lots of cash. I could resell the phone. So me being me, I listed the phones on ebay thinking that if I sell one I can immediately raise the cash so that I can order the phones. I sold all 5 iphones on ebay. I didn't have the iphones though, I was waiting for the guy from craigslist to send them. He didn't send it and I got scammed £450! And I also have to give refunds to all the eBayers but I don't have the money!! I need urgent help. Please help me. I can't tell anyone, I can't get a loan out. I can't do anything. I'm stuck in the middle and I only have a few days...

    Not sure if your are trolling or not but...
    How did you not know Craigslist can be a little dodgy? Usually if something sounds too good to be true, it is!
    Anyways, how did you manage to blow all the money from the ebay buyers? Unfortunately, I don't know how to make £2000 in a few days so you're on your own there.

    I didn't know craigslist was dodgy. And I lost £200 from ebay fees and I spent the rest of the cash... Please let me know if you figure any way out, even if it gets me a few pounds. After all, every little helps.

    So you handed £450 over to a person you didnt know and without seeing the phones? Are you in the habot of giving large sums of cash to complete strangers?

    Why not fund the purchase of the phones with the sale proceeds?

    Ask in the ebay forums about whether you cna canle the transction and simply return the money, then you will have only lost the draigs lust money. I have trouble believibg anyoen could be so stupid and youd think it was a good idea to try and sell items you dont have..

    Surely the PayPal funds wouldn't have released yet as the buyers wouldn't have reviewed their phones? I call BS.

    Literally the story you're trying to sell us is pure bs. It's so unrealistic and I'd like to think no one would be so silly as to do such a thing.
    Hey, you can have an A for effort though:ahee:

    So you would have us believe someone was willing to seell iphone 6's for £90 each.

    You subsequently send them £450 without seeing the phones or knowing anything about them.

    You then auction these imaginary phones on ebay.

    You then take money for the items and spend it.

    Can you send a print screen of your ebay selling page as proof? There's no security reason why not. I've uploaded mine. If you are serious I'll try to help otherwise without proof there's no point and your gofundme should be reported for fraud.
