A Craigslist deal gone bad left Vince Alto with more than $4,000 in counterfeit cash and missing a family heirloom, but he stands to lose a lot more if he doesn’t get justice soon.

Once he learned his insurance wouldn’t cover a stem cell treatment in Arizona that could help his rapidly progressing Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), Alto decided to start selling his valuable mementos to pay for the procedure.

Pawn shops and gold traders wouldn’t give him enough for his father’s gold nugget watch, so he listed it on Facebook for $4,000. He found himself bombarded with requests from scammers and even received a check from one in the mail for far more than what he was asking -- a scam he saw right through.
