  • What's up with this latest Craigslist scam?

    I've been getting emails about my Blackstar, saying, "hey, give me a call", and then leave a bogus phone number.. I only tried calling once, and did it from my work phone. I guess they want you to email them back saying the number's no good, to get your email address? I've ignored, and deleted the others since..

      craigslist allows emails through them, it doesn't reveal your actual email address

        On CL, initial email correspondence is anonymous.

          I'd imagine that the email link in craiglist is private, as with most on-line selling sites.

              They don't have your email address, unless you respond to the email they send you. When they send you the initial email, it's through a generated CL email address.

                Is it some kind of premium rate number scam?
