SCAMMER ALERT - "Christopher Holliday"

Well, I suspected I had been scammed by this Christopher Holliday fellow...
So I searched his phone number & confirmed...


I received this private message in regards to my wanted ad:

1995+ Toyota V6 Bellhousing 5VZFE R150
Check out Holiday in Pennsylvania via holli2580 @GMail.com,he has a 1995+ Toyota V6 Bellhousing 5VZFE R150 he wants to part with.


I contacted this Christopher Holliday fellow, exchanged text messages, he sent me photos of the bellhousing that I was looking for.

When closing the deal, he said he would NOT use PayPal, I sent him $130 or so using the Zelle app, allegedly to his "wife's" email - [email protected]

I got burned. I went back and checked the user that referred me, who had a whopping 0 posts on that forum, and had just joined in July. I sent Christopher Holliday the money on November 17th, and heard nothing from him since...


I've never ever been burned like this in my life, and only once did I receive parts that were not in the condition they were stated to be in. This is in over twenty years of buying and selling stuff on the internet! I want to trust people, but obviously there are wolves out there that rely on people having a sense of community trust...

Turns out this guy is doing this on other forums also. The VW TDI club forum, Cadillac forums, Pelican Parts forums...

Well the phone number has now been disconnected, so he is likely long gone with these credentials at least. On to prey on victims in other forums...

It is unlikely that I will be able to recover the $130 or so I sent him, but I will look into this through Zelle Quick Pay...
PayPal, PayPal, PayPal!!!! Exclusively from now on, if not in person...

Via those other scam alert links:
He also goes by Randy Rawlinson or Wendell (other forums he has scammed on by Googling his phone # 541-357-8718). His Paypal email is [email protected] and he also uses [email protected]

I am assuming you made sure this isn't a stolen identity issue before posting all that personal info.

This person has used numerous aliases and email addresses, all scams and or stolen identities. I've got the financial institutions working on this now. Although I doubt I will ever get any of my $130 back.

This same Dbag contacted me 11/1/19 via PM with same shit. I never responded. Here is the message.

Check out Holiday in Pennsylvania via holli2580 @GMail.com,he has a 35 spline Chevy D60 stubs he wants to part with.

User name was RODNEY330 joined July 2019.........

I don't respond to these kinds of messages. If they can post on the open board or reply with actual info I just ignore them.... Good luck in getting your money back man.

I got the same message in a PM from pascalnicholas912 on my WTB post in the classifieds yesterday. Seemed odd, makes sense now. I'd be happy to forward to anyone who is looking into pursuing this if you need/want more evidence.
