Latest craigslist Scam (Betty Sexton)

If you sell items on craigslist you'll want to know about the latest tactic used by crooks.


Thanks to Heather Zemke of Colorado Springs for letting me know about this... so I could pass it along to you. She was selling a pop-up camper and workout equipment on craigslist and received the same strange email for both items.

Someone claimed to be interested in her goods and asked her to click on a video link. The reason? So the prospective buyer could make sure "it was the same one he was looking for... and he couldn't afford to make another mistake."

Heather smelled a rat and she was right. Others who have opened such links have been hit with a massive computer virus. craigslist may be on the best garage sale on the planet, but be careful not to confuse a potential buyer with a hacker.
