Scammers still finding ways to scam around new changes

With the new changes Craigslist has implemented, the scammers have found workarounds to avoid being detected. One of their new methods is to request your personal email address, instead of corresponding through the original Craigslist email.

Real examples:

I received an email from saragabb: to make this deal fast send me your personal email address so as to chat better.

Here's another one I received: Please I have interest in your item but craiglist does not delivered back to my email directly, please could you send me your email that i can reach you so that i will contact you now for further inquiry

And another: Excessive number of bots and I am aggravated. Confirm u're for real by answering back to my confidential e-mail address to make a deal it is Stocktonhn90@hotmail.com 

They keep coming: I saw your item  posted on craigslist. I am very interested,also i have some Question to ask about it Please let me know soon. PLS KINDLY GET BACK TO ME WITH YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS

It doesn't stop: If u're not a fake write to me to my email address so I can trust you. It's Wanr0@hotmail.com 

Seriously(!!): I am interested in this. Kindly get back to me with your email address so we can strike a deal.

And again: Your email came as anonymous please reply with your email so that we can start correspondence from there thanks 


Please continue to help the Craigslist community by flagging these types of emails as scam.  You can do so by clicking the last link at the bottom of the email that says Please flag unwanted messages (spam, scam, other)

In the mean time, here are a list of known scammers:

  3. Some will tell you they want your item but can't make it over to get it because of their schedule but don't want to miss the deal so they would like to go ahead and pay for it useing PayPal, Wanting your PP e-mail address so they can send payment.

    1. What will the scamer do with the PayPal? I wonder if he just want your e-mail... I am fearful of how he would scam me out of money through PayPal- making me want to close my PayPAL account.

  6. Eric texted this morning wanting to pay via Paypal and schedule his "agent" to pick up item as a surprise for his son. I promptly replied with, Hi "Eric" you are straight up a Craig's list scammer and you and your bogus number have been marked.

  7. Jason Ashton claims he has a speech impediment and cannot communicate over the phone...

    Hello,
    interested in purchasing this cherry dinning set with hutch .let me know of it's availability ASAP? I have a speech disability so you can best reach me via email, always with my computer :)
    NB:if you are a serious seller,you can best reach me @ jasonshtn8@yahoo.com

    The use of "NB" almost got me. It is something an older person might use. The "contact me if you are a serious seller" made me think this is a scam, so I searched the email address and found this blog. Thank you for your work.

    I flagged it to CL as scam and hopefully this website will help because a google search didn't have anything. Thank you.

  12. Today a scammer told me that he was sending money through Paypal for an item. He then said that he "forgot" to tell me that he added shipping charges. He said he was in the military and unable to wire the money to the shippers and would I. I received a fake Paypal conformation of payment. It had the logo R and was encircled. It looked so much like a Paypal account. Paypal had no record of any $ transfers. I told him I would not divert funds. He then added guilt tactics and got forceful. Later tonight, another scammer asked about my email. I don't trust any of these people. It's hard living in Alaska where we do much shopping and trading through the internet.

  18. It is such a shame that these scammers are destroying the reputation of paypal purchasing on craigslist. For the many buyers and sellers on craigslist who use paypal lagitimately and prefer to have items shipped, this is a big problem because individuals automatically assume its a scam whenever they see someone requesting a paypal transaction.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Another scammer
    "I'm interested in buying your item. Your final price would be ? I need you to please re-confirm your final price in your response to me. Also, send me your response from your personal email to my own personal email ( bluument1@gmail.com ).

    1. From ( bluument1@gmail.com )
      Thanks for writing me back at your earliest convenience. I'm making an instant purchase and also wouldn't mind adding an extra $25 for you to close the ad on craigslist so I can be rest assured I'm the potential buyer. My method of payment would be through a certified bank Check and it will get mailed to you via FedEx or UPS courier service. Do not worry about pick up because my movers will be coming after check has been cashed. Kindly provide me with the following information to facilitate the mailing of the check.

      1. Full Name to be on the check
      2. Address where payment will be sent to not p.o.box ( because my courier service does not deliver to p.o box )
      3. City
      4. State
      5. Zip Code
      6. Mobile Phone #


      NB: I would like to also inform you that there will be an excess amount of funds which you will forward to my movers for shipment purpose.

      Thanks.

  20. I posted an item less than 24 hours ago for $500. Since then I have received 13 scam emails. Reading all of your posts is like reading all of the emails in my inbox. I have flagged all of the ones I could but somehow a few people have gotten my direct email. I guess if I have an item over a couple hundred dollars it's not worth posting on CL.

  26. Received several texts from 205-440-3945 telling me to establish pay pal acct. Obvious scam. I responded with "I won't fall for your fraudulent scam, but I will turn your info over to the fbi since you're attempting to commit wire fraud." The idiot quickly stops responding. I use this line every time I receive these bogus messages. Works every time.

    1. I received a text from 205-440-3945 asking about a vehicle I had listed on Craigslist. Seemed legit at first, but I became suspicious when they asked me for my paypal email, my current location, and my address...HELLO, RED FLAG! They claimed they were okay with my asking price and that this was their first purchase on craigslist (I hope it REALLY is their first purchase that has gone through and no one was stupid enough to fall for this!). So as the saying goes...if it's too good to be true, it probably is, so I googled the number and VOILA! Craigslist Paypal Scammers. Do your research people! And to those scammers, get a life...a legit one.

  27. 347-433-6398 is the phone number that texted me, saying their name was "Raquel" and that they would send me a cashier's check and wait for it to "clear" and then they would send someone to come pick up the car I had listed. Had a bad habit of using the letter "d" for "the". I sent a text back saying "I'm not an idiot and I don't fall for craigslist scams. I you are interested in THE car you can pay cash in person"....no response LOL! I've heard it all: I'm out of state on business, I'm a Marine or navy out at sea, blah blah blah.

    He responded to a Craigslist item I had for sale and pulled us along until we FINALLY realized it was a scam with this email:
    My Apologies: I had this Problem with the Shipper Agent, the pick up agent said they won't come for the pick up of the ( Item ) that i will need to pay for the pick up before they can arrange a pick up time, ! i wish to inform you that i would be adding an extra $900 to the money am transferring into your PayPal account, which is for the charged pick up fee for the pick up company to register the ( Item ) for pick up... So now i will be sending the total amount of $5,250 into your account now and you will help me send the $900 to the agent via western union the remaining $100 is to cover WU charges... I will be making the payment now.. Okay ?
    Notice he forgot to fill in the blank with what the item was!

      Since my phone was TRYING to be a SMART PHONE I can't text very well on it and had to ask 3 times for him to contact me through Craigslist. He finally gave me this email to contact him. So craiglist has no record of his emails. I just reported him and all his emails to Craigslist Support.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. From experience... you will get a few more emails from the original bad guy. You report it to gmail (they have a page for it), your address gets passed around to others and for a month or so more scams. Then it stops and about one every few months. Also, a steady stream of fake USPS, UPS, Wedding announcements, etc. that if you click on the highlighted areas will take you to SPAM sites and sometimes phishing places.

I thought i included that in my previous email that you will help to pay shipping fees which will be now be included in the payment that is coming to your PayPal account .they said they won't come and pick up unless i pay the agent commission fee first in order to be able to schedule a pick up time and my pick up agent head quarters is in Maryland and all commission payments made for pick up of shipment from anywhere in the world is sent to their head quarters in Maryland and the only form of payment they accept is western union/money gram money transfer and i tried to pay online but i will need a credit card which i didn't bring along and there is no post office, i will include $1,150 which they charged to pick it up (1st class delivery), to the payments i will send through PayPal. After i have made the payments and it has been confirmed by PayPal you will receive a confirmation mail from them, immediately you received the
      confirmation i want you to go and send the $1,150 to my pick up agent through western union/money gram money transfer, the western union money transfer can be made at a western union/money gram office neared you, there is always a western union/money gram agent in most western
      union/money gram or online at westernunion.com/www.moneygram.com. I will be making the payments shortly and will email you as soon as it has been done.

  55. Got this as a response to an item listed on craigslist:

    Still available?contact me here. jacquelinee3x0@gmail.com

    I get so many "fake" responses to my craigslist post, you kinda get to know which ones to just delete, like; those that don't reference the item being sold, those that want you to reply to a different email address...

After my check clears my Mover willcome and pick it up at your location. I would have come and taken alook of it but I can't. (on a business trip ). If you can get back tome with your info. I'll mail the check out asap. Need your full nameand address and your telephone number to mail the check out asap.Thankyou. Vecent.

  64. Currently am trying to rent room in my home and thought would try craiglist. Yes, I know absolutely insane on my part, but have empathy towards the desperate. lol Posted ad last night and have already received the following....

    "Tam Millburn"
    Please reply to my direct email below only as the Craigslist email doesnt work.
    (trinity38i@gmail.com)

    "Cheye Pagel"
    sent from Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Droid


    "Kimberly Powell"
    Pls the room posted on Craigslist, kindly reply to personal email address
    Kimhir6@gmail


    "beachdays6786"
    (Hers was extremely long-winded detailed account of her likes and hobbies---straight out of a playboy bunny bio lol) but what raised red flag---besides this awkward exchange of details---she states, "am willing to pay and advance for rent to secure the space" she also asks numerous personal questions, i.e "give me street address so can google it"


    Well, trust your gut. If it walks like duck and talks like one...its probably a duck. I have since removed my ad. By the way just fell upon blog, thankful and grateful for it. Tip offs include...use of words like 'kindly' (used in several of replies), grammar is foreign, use personal gmail address, advancing money to secure, sent from 4G LTE Droid, foreign .net addresses, gmails do not match, etc Well suffice to it say, I'm armed with education and ready for battle. lol Maybe one day will document all info and publish book on subject lol Good luck to you all!

  65. this email was a scam and look out for the phone number its been used several times...

    Good morning,

    How was your night? Hope you had a
    very beautiful night rest??? Thanks for
    having interest in my house..... Just to
    let you know before we move further. I
    would have loved to come and show
    you the house myself, but presently I
    am already in Mesquite Texas, I
    decided to rent it out because we are
    going to spend more time here in
    Texas, about 3 years due to my new job
    as a contractor. You can drive through
    the house anytime of the day if you
    wish to see the house for yourself. if
    you like it, you can let me know so that
    I can make arrangement to send the
    keys and paper work to you through
    FedEx.. We need a responsible person
    (With good credit) that can take very
    good care of it as we are not after the
    money,i deal with only serious people
    to avoid time wasting.

    The house is available to move in
    ASAP the address of my house is
    16805 Tracy St Victorville, CA 92395
    with Square f eet....754sqft ......It cost
    $350 for monthly rent and $300 for
    the security deposit $650 to be paid
    at once.

    Utilities include: power, water, washer/dryer, sewer and trash.. Your monthly
    rent already covers utilities so you do
    not have to pay extra charges for that.
    Pets are allowed as long as they are not
    destructive.

    My initial plan was to sell out the
    house, but my last Realtor was not
    honest with me, he cheated the tenant
    by getting higher rent from them and
    never deliver the money to me. I don't
    have anything to do with the Realtor
    again because I already collected the
    keys from him, as soon as I get a tenant
    the sign sale will be removed from the
    house so that people will stop
    contacting the number on the sign
    board.. We need a responsible person
    (With good credit) that can take very
    good care of it as we are not after the
    money. I am not dealing with the
    Agents any more they are Bad people.
    This is why I am handling the Rent by
    myself. You deal with me Direct. You do
    not need to contact any Agent when
    you get by the house cos if you do they
    will tell you sort of rubbish.

    Hoping to read back from you.

    Kind regards
    Ramor Amber

  68. From: alexvictoria123@outlook.com
    Hi, I am .Alex victoria I'm satisfied with the price of this particular item and i'm really interested in buying it. I would have love to come for the viewing by the weekend, but My place is way too far from there in which i am located in London Ontario. So i thought of how to make this transaction work between us, which i came to conclusion with my husband to use a courier company to pick up the item from your place but we will send the money to your account first and after you get the money in your account, the pick up company will come to help us carry it. Since i'd not be seeing the item before i purchase it, i would like you to send some recent pictures of its present state to be sure you still have it and its in good condition. If the pictures pleases me, then we can go ahead with the transaction and will send the money to you without delay.... Lest i forget, i would be transferring the funds to you through PayPal. Please reply with your opinion ASAP Thanks.

  98. In response to my email (erroneously sent to one of these scammers, regarding my "Room for Rent" ad:

    From "PLauraChen1@gmail.com: Thanks for your response,let me introduce myself. I am Laura 25 year non-smoker lady coming to US, I work as chef on cruise ship at the moment and I have limited time to surf the internet and also phone call is also strictly limited due to the nature of my job, but I will still find a chance to call you. I will like to know the total cost covering my first three months’ rent together with deposit. I will also like you to GET BACK TO ME with your POSTAL CODE ADDRESS for me to forward it to my mover to calculate the total cost of moving my little stuffs to US. I had attached picture of myself for you to know me and I will be waiting to read back from you soon.
    Thanks
    Laura

    Now from me (the ad poster, not responder): Since I erroneously responded to "Laura", I have been receiving numerous texts and emails from similar account names. I no longer respond to emails or texts.

  104. Hi My name is 'Bruno Rico' just want to share my experience with the world on how i got my love back and saved my marriage... I was married for 7years with 2kids and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had fights and arguments almost every time... it got worse at a point that she filed for divorce... I tried my best to make her change her mind & stay with me cause i loved her with all my heart and didn't want to loose her but everything just didn't work out... she moved out of the house and still went ahead to file for divorce... I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who eventually helped me out... I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly cause I was desperate and left with no choice... He did special prayers and used roots and herbs... Within 7 days she called me and was sorry for all the emotional trauma she had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily, the kids are happy too and we are expecting our third child. I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news... Just thought I should share my experience cause I strongly believe someone out there need's it... You can email him via eromosalspiritualtemple@gmail.com Don't give up just yet, the different between 'Ordinary' & 'Extra-Ordinary' is the 'Extra' so make extra effort to save your marriage/relationship if it's truly worth it.

Im postive that area code is from Alabama. He or she texted me saying if my item was still available. I responded yes and he hasnt texted since. I then texted back after waiting 10 mins. To make it short, "I will report you to the fbi." Still no answer.

  115. I'm really grateful for accepting to give me the room. The payment will be processed and sent out before the end of the week and I'll get back to you with the tracking number and my flight information once they are ready. I would love to know the best time to come as I believe Sundays are always better for traveling but I would prefer you tell me so I know the best time to come since I might need you to help pick me at the airport. Can you also let me know the nearest airport to you and also try and take the AD off Craigslist finally so as to avoid any inconveniences.


    As regards my car, I'm planning on having it delivered to the apartment before my arrival so as to settle comfortably when I arrive. I'm sure you understand transiting cross Atlantic is not easy so I'm making arrangement with the car dealer to deliver the car before my arrival after the rent and security deposit has been paid to you by my Dad. I will ask you for a favor here, Can I rely on you to take delivery of the car for me when it's delivered. As you will be handling the delivery of the car with the rent and deposit to be sent to you so that you can help me handle the delivery payment for the car. The delivery payment will be included with the Check coming to you. I will really appreciate if you can do this for me and promise to compensate you adequately for your time and efforts on my arrival to your place.

  116. My roommate and I just received an email from her in regards to our ad about a room for rent. Originally it came up as Nakasha cantoran, but when we emailed her personal email it was tam Millburn. She claims she was moving from Scotland and her dad was paying for her rent even though she is 24. She asked for her Full name, address, city, state, zip code, and phone number. Really adamant that we give her all of this before she arrives. So glad I like investigating things because we almost agreed. She also asked about a parking space but we stopped replying. She also said she was visiting a cousin in Kosovo and then they were coming to California to finish their masters degree. Too much random information about her to see normal.

    "Please respond to my email.

    "I'm interested and fine with the price. Unfortunately, I'm in the mountain for work and unable to call. Pls get back to me via my email.

  136. jackbeuer8@gmail.com replied by text from phone number 904-541-6727 stating "Do you still have this item available for sale? Please reply to my email jackbeuer8@gmail.com.

    I replied to the email and got the following response.

    "Thanks,I'm seriously interested in buying this for my Father as gift, your asking price is quite reasonable and affordable considering others I've seen lately,I would have loved to come check it out my self but am currently in camp as military instructor for new recruits. I however squeezed out time to check this posting as all personal dealings are highly restricted here, i really want this as a surprise gift for my Father so i won't let him know anything about this until it get delivered to him and due to the fact that phone calls making are restricted......i will be paying you with my PayPal account because it's attached to my bank account and its safe and very secure way to make payment. If my mode of payment is accepted just send me your Paypal email address,(Paypal ID) so i can pay in right away. I'll need your name, the pickup address or location and please include your PayPal email address for the payment and send me some recent pictures if available And if you don't have a PayPal account, you can easily go to WWW.Paypal.com and sign up. its very easy. I await your reply asap Thanks...."

    Followed immediately with the next email:


    "There will be a pick up agent that will come to your house to do the pick up after the payment must have been made so get back to me with your
    Paypal email now along with your final price so i can make the
    payment asap."

    Thanks for your prompt response, actually I am sorry that I could not longer come take a look or to pick it in person as planned, I actually just had a change in my work schedule but I believe am OK with the condition if you can let me know and as the price stated. I am ready to make instant purchase with my mode of payment would being a Certified Bank Check via Postal service Express mail or UPS overnight delivery.

    I'll arrange for a local pick up as soon as you receive check, cashed it and have your money in hand, I promise you everything will go smoothly as I would like to have it before my wedding anniversary which comes in a week.

    Kindly get back to me with your

    Full Name
    Full mailing Address
    Cell Phone Number
    Agreed price

    As soon as this is provided, payment will be overnight to you but due to the weekend it will deliver to you by Tuesday and I will let you know once its mailed out by providing you the tracking #. I will also add an additional $50 for holding it for me till the Check gets you and delete the posting from the list today.

    Thanks and I hope we handle this in good faith while waiting to hear from you.
