My complaint:

I saw this ad for a baby grand piano on Craig List, with a similar story as narrated by the previous complainants. Samuel Joles (Google shows this person is deceased) was giving away his late wife’s baby grand piano, and he was moving from New Jersey to Delaware. The piano was in transit at a warehouse of Proton Moving Company (Director: George Bloom). They emailed me to send half ($100) of the moving charges of $200 by Zelle OR CASHAPP to cassieluv328406@gmail.com, but informed me later that this did not work, and gave a different email address (diamondataylor4@gmail.com) to try again. Then they requested an insurance payment of $450 to be sent by Zelle to Ronaldgrantham1@gmail.com. I became suspicious and found this website (Scam Pulse) with warnings of this serial scam by Proton Moving Company. I called Zelle and gave them details of all the emails used by Proton Moving Company, and to blacklist them. I also put in a dispute with my bank to have the $100 Zelle transaction cancelled and refunded, but they said this may take 10-45 days. Can someone do the needul to apprehend these culprits as soon as possible? (When I asked ‘George Bloom’ for his Driver’s License, he emailed in reply that it is personal staff information and cannot be divulged. I wrote back that he could white-out the License number and date of birth, but did not get a reply.
