They need to be reported!”5. February 2017 at 11:02 #1323
SCAM if you receive a text or call from this number beware that they will try to defraud you.
I placed an ad in Craigslist and received a text from this number offering to send a “cashier s check” to pay for the item for sale plus additional money to pay their “associate” to pick up the item for sale. The cashier s check is not genuine. It is a fake. Do not fall into the trap.

Rental Scam on Craigslist
How it works:
While you are looking for a new rental property at Craigslist, you find an unbeatable offer: A very nice house or apartment with a very low price. Now you have to be fast before its gone. Unfortunately, many others think the same… and unfortunately the „landlord“ is not the owner of that house.
Perhaps you can visit the house, get the keys or a signed contract. And then you are asked for a monthly rent or more.
The scammer offers the property to several people for rent and collects money. Then he leaves the city.
So, your money is gone and you have no home.2. June 2017 at 14:52 #1889
You should also be careful when a “friend” of the the house owner appears as a middleman. He tells a story as the owner is out of the country and needs urgently money.
Even in this fraud, the house is not for rent!21. August 2017 at 8:25 #198623. October 2017 at 10:52 #2023
Craigslist Google Voice Scam
What is Google Voice?
You can set up a free Google Voice number connected to your personal phone number. You choose a number from available numbers in selected area codes. To verify it, Google Voice calls you and you need to enter two digits given by Google Voice.
How does Google Voice Scam work?
You posted an ad with your phone number to sell something. Or you put your phone number out in public somewhere.
An interested person send you an email or a text message, that they want to call you. They give you a two digit number to enter, when they call, so you can talk to them.
What goes on in the background?
They tell Google Voice, that they want a Google Voice number connectet to your phone number. Google Voice says it will call your number to verify and they should enter the two digit number.
You get a call from Google Voice and enter the code number. So they set up a Google Voice number, using your phone number as the forwarding number for their account!
Do not enter the two digit code, if you didn’t set up a Google Voice number!4. March 2019 at 10:22 #4421
Vehicle history report scam – a very tricky rip-off tactic
You have listed your car on an online sells platform and got a call or a text message from someone who is interested in buying your car? Did he ask you for a vehicle history report?
There is where you should be on the watch!
Scammers in many cases want you to get the report from a specific website. There you have to enter the information they need and pay with your credit card. What is happening there?
Fraudsters now have your personal information, including your credit card number.
It can be a company which sales your personal information to others.
You have lost the money for the report and your car is still yours.
Be careful in this and similar cases! Do not share casually personal information!
