Default Scammed by Cliffton Edward Morse & David Warner Parsons

Scammed by Cliffton Edward Morse & David Warner Parsons

I was scammed by these two in 2009 - I bought two rebuilt Mercruisers off Ebay. I sent the money to a joint account in their name, no engines were ever sent.

I lost $11,000 .................. an expensive lesson learned.

Personally I do not understand why this case was not solved, but the purpose of this post is not to complain, but to warn you all to stay clear of any dealings with these guys.

My last correspondance with the Police is below.

Hello Officer Cody,
I'd appreciate an update on this case, it's been 8 months now.
I would like to hope this guy would be in jail by now or is doing community labour.

Cliff should have been relatively easy to track down as the bank had his and his buddies details. I would think all you would need is his social security number and that would be the end of him.

I talked to his bank and they would not disclose his details to an individual.
I got my bank to contact his bank for a refund, but one of them has emptied the account.
I have tried to contact Cliff numerous times unsuccessfully. Cliff never replies to my emails.

Any updates are appreciated,

Yours sincerly,
Blaine Hanson

Hello Mr Cody,
I wish to report a possible fraud in your area.

If you are not the correct person to report this to - please forward this email to the appropriate department.

Please help.

My name is Blaine Hanson I purchased two rebuilt Mercruiser engines off ebay - see

Item name: Mercruiser 454 EFI Magnum marine engines No
Reserve!!!
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=170373461700
Item Id: 170373461700
End time: 24-Aug-09 02:22:08 AEST
Seller: cliffm386

The transaction was paid for via inter-bank transfer for both the engines and for special engine crates to the value of US$10,100 & US$900. US$11,000 total.
I have attached my bank statements to prove these payments were made. See the high lighted sections.

25 Aug 2009 for US$10,100 - see page 3
10th Sept 2009 for $1117.12 ( that's in Australian dollars which equates to $900 US dollars ) - see page 2

The two bank transfers were made to this account

Prosperity Bank

David Warner Parsons

Cliffton Edward Morse


The seller has since vanished with the money. He does not answer his email - ebay or yahoo account or answer his phone.

You will also see if you now check out his ID in ebay, he has not delivered many sales in ebay to many clients since mine.
Before that time cliff morse had a good ebay record.
