Several of these emails also had clear boxes with randomly named. Seems to be a role reversal here. Are you kidding me? Sure, I could use some cash but when in doubt I say ignore and delete. This recent attack appears to be nothing more than an embellishment of previous scam procedure. Overall CL has worked well for me both as a buyer and seller. Honest replies should be obvious. I received an email just like what Mike said. Not sure what is happening here. Be sure to have multiple emails everyone!
So this is happening to me, but Im getting 8 to 10 a day on me. So how do you stop them or can you. For the past couple postings i have put it get a reply back starting with: I got an email saying is the item still available and i responded yes they said i am okay with the asking price can i send you a check and i will add To hold the item for me and will arrange for pick up when the check is cashed just send me uour name and address and i will send it overnight ups so i did and the i asked where are you located and no response did i get scamed or can they do something with my name and address?
Googling the name does not always help. I have noticed that in recent months some scammers and spammers started including legit phone numbers and names. So if you google them you confirm that these people exist. I still do not get the point of doing this new thing… I figured these were fake replies because I noticed that some people were really old but the style used in e-mails was inadequate for their age. Another hint was when I was selling roller blades and got a reply from a very old guy obviously it was not him.
The sender names never repeat. I do NOT click on the link any longer once I found out what this was about. In the beginning I deleted all such mail. I sent a message to CL asking them what they can do about it — never got a reply. Who can I report these offensive messages to? I get those also. I am also getting replies to my Craigslist ad. My daughter said to take it to the Police Department. I may do that. Now that I see the porn thing is happening to other, guess it is new, it did not used to happen.
But signing on to my avon site, with rude email with a. Here is what everyone in United States should do. First of all, it costs them money to send it! And that costs money. However, have the check sent to any of the following addresses: Use their legit local office addresses not their D.
This is a fun game for everyone! The Nigerians get to spend their money. Post Office gets a little foreign cash. You get to watch your email to see when the check gets sent. They got so many checks, they called me and asked me to start reporting them to IC3. Also, the scammers are now sending emails without any IP address, so you can no longer tell where they come from.
I am not sure what you mean. It is not possible to send an email message without the IP address of at least some of the servers through which it traveled appearing in its headers. It would appear that now craigslist is anonymizing email addresses in both directions. I just posted an ad to Craigslist and then sent email to the anonymized email address created for the ad.
When I received that email, it had my real email address in the header, and when I replied to the email, my reply went to my real email address, not an anonymized address. The same has been happening to me! I am making a list of the return name do not know if that will help and am sending to FBI unless someone has a better idea because on the first couple I got I reported to craigs list but NOTHING has happened besides I keep getting them. Please if there has been a way discovered to stop this let me know!
I find that replying with an insert of the Homeland Security logo without comment not misrepresenting myself tends to vaporize Nigerians. Would I would recommend for all of you, is to create a second email account with a fake name: Type it in as if it were you real name when signing up for the new email account.
Also, Put in false information that could potentially protect you if someone were to hack your email account. Birthdays, Address, Phone This information doesnt have to be real in order to create and account. This is a simple way to protect yourself and your information. Jared has a good solution. I created an e-mail address which automatically deletes all replies. It has become increasingly obvious which replies are bogus and which ones merit a reply the vast majority are bogus.
I told him i have had enough fun but playing with nigerians over email was way more fun. Every single time i either renew or post a new for sale I get them. Sick and a waste of my time deleting several a day. I do not put my actual email address on CL for that reason. I have the exact same issue. Has anyone found a solution to stop the e-mails from coming back? Does it stop after a while? I am so sick of craigslist! It used to be a great site.
I will no longer use craigslist because of it. But like anything new, it takes users to start adopting solutions like these to avoid the headaches. Give it a try on your next post and let me know how it goes for ya! Thank you for your blog. I just started receiving these responses and knew something was up also. I agree, I think Craigs list should do something to clean up their site.
Forgot to mention in my earlier post that some foreigner actually sent me a phone text with his number of course and I called it. He sent the usual is this item still available? I asked where he lived and he said in Missouri, I believe. I am near Atlanta posting on the Athens Craigslist. I could care less. Thats what law enforcement is for. You folks have got to start fighting fire with fire. It really makes them go away. But I still have his number! Its not that I want to, and I get where you are coming from.
I was gone last week and came home hoping my emails would have sent me at least one legitimate interest in the 8 or so items I have on Craigslist. I have sold many things on there, and as someone else said, you just have to be patient.
But all I got was about 6 or 8 pics or young girls asking for a good time. Must be something new. Silly, absurb, but maybe new. Out of say 8, I only responded to one. After that deleted the rest. But I can guarantee, if you let them know that you are onto them, you can at least eliminate the repeats.
But why not reply? I have a ball with mine and never get any response back. No specific questions about it, just quoting exactly what I have as my item heading. They are likely the same person or persons because I get the same thing 4 times a day on one item and each one is a different name. I literally cuss them up one side and down the other, but with humor wish you could read some. How have you gotten to this stage in your life?
Have fun with it. Trying to scam again? People are wimps, hiding behind their PCS. They want to do harm to others, anonomously of course. Let them have it! Release some steam that these idiots cause us. Otherwise they would try to clean this up better. Heck, by now, they could have my physical address. We live in the wimpest world.
I am a woman and saying that. I am a feminine woman and saying that! I call out the customer service reps when it gets so bad and they are giving me the wrong information. I ask for their supervisor. I ask the supervisor to listen to the conversation the rep and I had recorded for quality control right? Out of 5 customer service conversations in a week, I may have one that makes my blood boil. Go through life being who you know you are.
But when someone throws a wrench in your day…my gosh get some backbone. I could look up anyones physical address and see an aerial view of their home on mapquest. Otherwise these idiotic folks are boxing you into a scared state always looking over your shoulder. What a sad way to live.
