Anyone ever got a spam-text from CL?

so I put on an ad on craigslist and I get this text saying that they were interested in it but he lived 3 states away from me. he offered $30 for any inconvenience and i'm still scratching my head over what inconvenience but anyway- he said he would send his mover for it and also kept saying "kindly tell me your address so I can send a cashier's check" and he didn't even have any questions or want any pics of the item.

so I asked him why he didn't have any questions about it and he said he trusts pple. weird- but ok. so I was honest and told him there was a few minor scratches and he was like "ok" "send me your address so I can send a check" he just kept saying that. I was almost tempted to but then there was a gut feeling that I was being spammed. I don't know how but just seemed fishy.

  • You need to report it. This has happened to me as well. They live overseas, India or somewhere and it's a scam to get your personal information and money.
