Listed my pickup on craigslist for sale. At the very bottom of the ad, it clearly states: it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests. I also clearly stated in my ad: "I do not need help selling, if it's listed here and you see it, other's can see it just fine." I have been contacted by Matt Carter several times for other vehicles I've sold, and I'm tired of getting these calls. I figured with this listed there, they wouldn't bother since they clearly read the ad to locate the phone number to contact you with.
I got a phone call from an unknown number while I was at work. I ignored it, and received the typical "I'm so glad I found you" bull. I deleted the voicemail, only to receive a call from the same Unknown about 2 hours later. At this time I was off work. I answered. Sure enough, Matt Carter. I quickly told him I know who he is, he's called me time and time again, and I'm not interested in his scam. He quickly responded with "it's not a scam. We help thousands sell their cars, and he can help me for a small price." Bull. I told him to lose my number and never call me again. He said he'd put me on the do not call list and hung up promptly.
2 days later. The prick calls me again. Leaves me a voicemail. "I called a while ago and I see this is still for sale" crap or whatever it was. I deleted the voicemail again, this time furious. After I got off work, I called the number he left in the voicemail. Some debbie answers. I tell her I've talked to Matt and I told him not to call me anymore, I wanted to know why I'm still getting calls. She told me Matt is busy, and that she would put me on the do not call list as well. Then she hung up on me. Again. Twice I've been hung up on by this company.
You'd think this story is over. No. Try again. The next day, on a Saturday, I get a phone call. This time, for once, it's not unknown. Of course I don't recognize it, so I answer. It's dipstick Matt. He noticed my car is still for sale. Guess who's not exactly a happy camper. I told him he's called me several times, my trucks been for sale less than a week and I've received 4 phone calls since it's been listed from him. I do not want his help, and if he calls me again I will report him to my attorney. He stated he has no record of calling 4 times, has only left me one voicemail over a week ago. I laughed and told him it hasn't been listed for a week yet, so his records are wrong. I told him I want to be put on his do not call list, which I've been told twice now would happen, and has yet to happen. I told him I don't want any part of his scam, obviously if he can call me 4 times the ad is working just fine.
I've had multiple calls from serious buyers, just not the right offer yet. I don't need anybody's help. DO NOT FALL FOR THIS SCAM.
