Craig’s List Spammers

So my husband and I are trying to sell our Tonneau Cover on Craig’s List (it’s super sweet – let me know if you are interested!) but I just gotta say that I am so over the spammers. Seriously, do these people really get people to fall for their crap?! I wonder if I was direct enough in the one I dealt with this morning…

 do you still have the item you post on CL.
Yep. Are you a real person? I don’t trust things that just say “the item.” Sorry for being cautious… 

The new reply email is I’m already suspicious…
l really appreciate your response to my email. I want you to consider
it sold, pls do withdraw the advert from CL to avoid
disturbance,anyway I don’t have time to come over to take a look
because of my Business but you don’t need to bother yourself with the
shipment, I’ll take care of that by engaging the services of a mover,
hence I’ll be sending a check and it will be delivered to you via
United Parcel Service (UPS), so I’ll need you to provide me with the
information to facilitate the mailing of the check. Name to be on the payment
       Home address
       Zip Code
       Mobile #

Note that the payment will be shipped to your address via UPS NEXT DAY
AIR SERVICE and I will like you to know that you will not be
responsible for shipping i will have my mover to come over as soon as
you have cashed the check*( n.b ups does not deliver to a P.O BOX
You didn’t even reply to my question. Fuck spammers.


  1. BIGGEST PET PEEVE EVARRRRRRRR. I get it all the time, and I let loose on those motherbitches. I HATE it, HATE. It makes me hate CL.

  2. OMG I know! So annoying. Hopefully you get it sold soon!

  3. i dealt with a bunch of those when i was looking for a bulldog breeder. i did some pretty mean stuff to them, i'm a bad person.

  4. I HATE that. I've sold a lot of things on Craigslist and love the concept, but the spam is annoying as hell.

  5. Oh yeah – I hate those too. I just sold my car on craigslist and the scams have gotten very creative lately. Surprisingly though I listed my dad's car last week and I haven't gotten ANY spammers…yet.

  6. Oh jeez. Yep. So familiar.

  7. Craigslist is awesome BUT the scammers are a pain in the ass!!

  8. so annoying! I wonder if people really are so dumb and fall for it, but I was watching Teen Mom last week, and one of the girls on there did, and lost 3000 bucks when she thought she sold her car. crazy!

  9. Super annoying!

  10. seriously they are ridiculous! I hate them too. Which is why I hate posting things. I once got offered double my asking price for my car by someone out of the country. He was going to ship it and everything. I just needed to cash a check for him because someone owed him money and I could return the extra money to him and keep the rest. Yeah right buddy.
