This number texted me about some furniture I had for sale on Craiglist. I knew immediately it was a scam when he/she requested using Paypal. I also suspected by the texting errors and it was apparent they never read the ad.

Craigslist scammer. Wanted to buy snowmobile with a Florida number. I went along with it to get more info knowing it was most likely a scam and to get information for everyone else. Their email and home address they sent was:
samanthanmerrit@gmail.com
1719 W ST APT D6
Vancouver,Washington 98661
Also said he would be surprising their brother with the snowmobile that lives in Alabama because ( too bad we all know how much snow they dont get in the south)
phone number is registered to a Rashid Wooten.
hope this helps someone from making a mistake.

Lou texted me about a $1700 piece of furniture that I listed on Craig's List today. He is too busy to come see it (in PA) so he will send his agent if I give him my Paypal email. I told him that sounded great, and was it o.k. That I left it outside and my dog pooped on it.

I just posted an expensive item for sale on CL (asking for $2K). Just like the first poster, he/she asked to pay by PayPal because of the flight attendant thing. It sounded weird to me, so I looked into it and told them I was only interested in cash. No response so far.

This number responded to my Craigslist posting and requested to pay via Paypal and also mentioned that he/she couldn't pick up the item because he/she was a flight attendant. I have never accepted Paypal for a Craigslist post before and researched if it was safe (received many scam warnings) then I researched the number and came across these posts (THANKS!!). I notified the person that I suspected it was a scam and that I wasn't interested in selling my item to them. There was no response, indicating to me that the person was in fact a scammer.
