Got an email from a woman named Maria Pendltinton. The last name seemed weird. Then I proceeded to read. Her insistence on getting my personal email right off the bat, no listing of where she lives (such as Phoenix, AZ), no haggle on price, no asking to see it, no asking for more pictures. Seemed like just another scammer. Sure enough, I open a new tab on my browser, type in "Maria Pendltinton Craigslist" and found numerous scams from this person using fake checks and a stolen UPS account. I may want to sell my desk pretty badly, but I am not going to respond to this. |
This was the email I received:
I am willing to buy this but please write your email address in the body of the message when you respond, because I am having trouble responding due to the craiglist relay system.
You would receive this message and be able to respond to me but my responses after that would not deliver to you.
If you still have it Thanks
