Same as these people said. Due to the weird wording I knew and didn't answer. They are getting smarter as I only spelled my area code, i never typed it in numbers. Scammers everywhere watch out!
I got the same text asking if my ad on Craigslist was still for sale and contact him at email@example.com to let him know. I was suspicious when he didn't ask specifically about my item that's for sale. I texted back that it was for sale and he immediately asked if I would send more pictures to his personal e-mail. Way too vague to be a real buyer. I figured he was trolling.
Got a text from this person
Hello, is ur listed Ad on Kijiji is for sale? kindly get back to me on my personal email address (Martin_benson@rocketmail.com)
There is an email feature so I know it's a scam
Got a text from this number wanting to buy truck rims off craigslist without even seeing them. I live in Toronto, this number is from Utah! Sent a paypal money request and the response was that the payment was made plus an additional $400, $300 of which was for the shipper (Chelsea Yrias...google this name for more info!!!!) to receive via western union and an extra $100 for whatever western union would charge me for the transaction. The whole things smelled a bit fishy: who buys pick up truck rims from Toronto, used and has them shipped to Utah for almost the same cost of the rims?! I sent an email to the scammer's email address indicating that it all seemed a bit fishy. Then of course, I decided to look up the number from his text and saw this string. Paypal money request cancelled immediately. Hope this scammer is caught soon!
gt a message. He wants to buy my bike without even looking at it
Asked me to open a paypal account so he can pay immediately.
A bit strange.
