Craigslist scammers UGH

Postby Shane N. » Mon Apr 16, 2018 6:39 pm

I have put a couple things on Craigslist lately and the scammers waste no time now. Within 20 minutes I got a text with a name and was ask if they could call me. Blocked that number. 30 minutes later got a text said email me at this address. I text back and said I tried to send email but it said “scam”. Blocked that number. 45 minutes later got a call from Texas and sent it to voicemail and it was some computer talking. Blocked that number. I have more blocked numbers in my phone than I have numbers for people I actually know and talk to. My wife got a call today from a guy who said he was with Windows 10 and said her computer had a problem. She ask him if he needs her social security number too? He said whatever you want to give me will work.

Don't put phone number or email in ads. Only use the Craigslist email protocol.
