I placed an ad on Craig's List this morning, to sell my original art work. At 11:50 AM, someone sent me text message from telephone number 786-377-6377 which read: I wanna buy " ORIGINAL OIL PAINTINGS " Still available?
I responded: They are. Any particular one?
They responded: OK....... I Have sent you a quick verification code from craigslist, If your post is real, please send me the code.....
I sent them the code.
They did NOT respond!
I immediately deactivated my CL account.

Failed to scam me

  • Monetary Loss: $0
This person messaged me about buying a high end watch on Craigslist. He wanted to use PayPal which would refund his money after he complained, which would look bad on me. The red flag was when he offered to pay more than the item was worth new.

I have an item for sale and a person contacted me wishing me to except cashiers check and 3rd party service would pick up

Posted an items for sale on Craigslist. Received an email from someone that said they never check their Craig's List email, would I please contact them at another address, (see above) They wanted to know about the item and if I would take less. I responded with brief info about the item. I then received another email from a different gmail acct. [email protected]
a Janet Kennedy that said "thanks for your quick response....." then went into this story of being willing to pay full amount, plus 30 to hold item and that when I received the cashiers check a third party would pick item up. She asked for my full name, address, phone number. I did not give this info to her. I instead said I would like to speak to her before providing any personal info. When she messaged back, she continued with a story about being in remote area and not able to take or receive calls.......
I have not responded and will not be providing info. Just thought you would like to have the two email addresses as this appears to be a Craig's list scam that is going on. Not sure if you can do anything with just their emails, but I would hate to see anyone else taken advantage of. They can be somewhat convincing.
Thank you
Again the two email addresses that contacted me:
