Craigslist posting getting weird emails


Recommended Posts

Everytime I list an item on Craigslist I get weird emails about offering me more than I want with outragrouse shipping added just send them my paypal email etc. Whats the scam on this, to get my paypal ID or to claim they didn't get the item? I mean if I was sending something out,I would insure require signature confirmation and it would have delivery confirmation on it too.....I even get it on out rental apartment, its so weird


oops, guess I am not awake yet, suppose to be in general forum....though I was selling one of my deals that I am not giving for the holiday LOL

do you check that box that says...it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests?


Just wondering if that allows your email address to post elsewhere.


I don't believe that paypal will email you to send them info. I think you need to contact them through paypal not clicking on a link...but typing in the paypal.com so you know you are actually going to pay pal and not a link set up to look like paypal.


I never got wierd emails from posting on craigslist. But I have gotten wierd emails requests from paypal and ebay scammers looking for my information. Do NOT give them anything. If you do you need to immediately contact paypal and/or ebay and change your information. It is NOT ebay or paypal.
