I had the same text today about an ad I have on craigs list
I got a text from him (Joseph C Watkins) wanting to no last asking price of the dress from Craigslist. Do not reply to this! It is a scam!
I received a text in regards to my wedding dress post on CL. Scam.
I got a message also from him for a dress I put on Craigslist he a fraud he sends out fraud checks
I got a text message from this number, he said his name was Joseph C Watkins though. He asked for condition of wedding dress I had for sale and how much my final asking price is. DO NOT give him personal info!! I didn't, luckily, but just be careful! This is the second spam text I've gotten in reply to the wedding dress ad. Don't respond to this number or to 650-564-4527!!!
Just got a text from Joseph C Watkins 605-644-6059 yesterday asking about my wedding dress. I googled the phone number and this thread came up, so i replied back and told him he needed to get a new gig and stop preying on people.
I too posted a wedding dress on Craigslist and was contacted via text by this person. He called himself Joseph C Watkins and wanted to also send me a cashiers check. Said I could wait until it cleared before I shipped the dress and asked for my full name but didn't finish the text so he didn't actually ask for my address. I told him to provide me with his banks name, number and his acct number and I would verify he wasn't running a scam. He never responded. I can't believe they can't track these people down and stop them.
I got a text from this number from a guy claiming to be Joseph C Watkins asking about a wedding dress I placed on Craig's List. I told him I was going to report his number because apparently he has goes by several names and is a scam.
yea someone texted me yesterday with the number 801-742-1338 with the same story i thought it was wierd that they lived in a different state but was on a different states craigslist, so i begain asking alot of questions so they stopped texting. then today i got a text from a different number and it was the "megan watkins" person with the same story. i told them its kinda dumb to keep using the same name and that they suck at scamming people

Just got a text from someone who said they were Megan Watkins and interested in the wedding dress then followed by one from someone who is her father. I told them no go it was a scam and hope the police get them.
Just got same text about a wedding dress I have on Craigslist, after reading all this I was highly pissed so I wrote back n said u need to research your self before u try scamming someone again b****
This same number contacted me about a wedding dress. Wanted my personal imfo to send a bank certified check, and would send me an extra 100 for shipping. This person needs to be STOPPED!!! this is a total scam!!
U dont think hed come to our homes do u? Im alone in my house.
I got on from meg and i told her i caught her. and she said ill just cancel the check then. Said it seemed like a joke to her. like i was the one scamming her or him.
Actually, your kids might want it, I take that back. My mother made a Halloween costume for me out of the dress she married my dad in. I was Cleopatra, 1987.
I want my keys returned, if they haven't been already.
A wedding dress is worn ONCE and then it's obselete. It's garbage, it's out of fashion before it's sold, and trust me, your kids won't want it someday. Why is this something symbolic of marriage?
Also, please tell your husband I want my keys returned before he goes because they don't belong to him.
Today I put my wedding dress on Graiglist and I got the same message, me and my husband didn't figure that it was the scam until he started to do some mistakes. I thought somebody report alredy about that scam guy....I have people like that!!! Hope soon he will be caught and will have other troubles, people like him deserve it!
What I would like to know is "Where's the money he was sending me!?" Cuz he aint getting anything from me!!!
Today his name is Megan Watkins. I texted them back and told them that they were a scammer and to quit texting me
I posted my wedding dress on CL and got the very same info as all the other people. Going by the name Megan Watkins. I have already provided my address. now I am uneasy about if they will do anything further. someone please advise.
I recieved a text from Megan Watkins wanting to buy a wedding dress on craigslist. I gave my information before I asked how she was paying and I recieved the phony check. I looked up the routing number on the internet to determine that it was a phoney. So please don't respond to this person. Also, the check address and return address were for Chicago, IL, but the post mark was from North Dakota. Grrr...glad I didn't go try to cash this I'm sure I would have had to pay fees for it bouncing.
SCAMMER!!! Just had the same thing
Got a text from the same # about my wedding dress but they said their name was michelle watkins. Same story... wanted my info to send a check with an extra $100 for shipping to send it to Ohio. Nice try loser!
Placed add on Craigslist for my wedding dress got a text from this number but now he must be pretending to be a lady. The name is Megan Watkins. Wanting my info to send me a cashiers check. Felt very uncomfortable about this text so I goggled it and here I am. What a loser!!!
Same number texted me using the name Megan Watkins
I recieved the same message as you all did. I posted a wedding dress yesterday and this text even supplied a name - Meg Watkins, and she was buying the dress for her daughter and wanted me to ship it to Ohio. (And I live across the country from Ohio). She said she would include a $100 extra for shipping and then wanted my address. I don't think so.
Erin, this is just a discussion board. It has no ability to block or shut anyone down.
This is a full-time craigslist scammer/ stalker. Please shut them down. There are enough documented complaints to block this user.
