Spammer Scammer Alert Craig's List Spoofer!

If anyone gets an email like this then definitely forward it to Craig's List so that they can start to work on the problem!

This was sent to the email address to which I use to reply when I'm answering ads from my posted ads

I did send a complaint via the web form but wanted to make certain that someone is able to see just how much these people are trying to look like a Craig's List Email - this was NOT ASKED FOR by me nor anyone in the household

I have not used Craig's List to Request Information from anyone for this spam to be coming in to this email address means that one of the people who answered one of the sale items ads is a spammer because this came in only to the one email address but I have my email set up so that any ad replied to through Craig's list will go to the email account set up to post the ads but also a copy is forwarded to a 2nd account from which I'll email reply but has no information that is personally identifiable to a stranger

The fact that this came in to only this email address & not both emails means that who ever is generating this SPAM is using any email address that came in reply to a question as it's method of obtaining email addresses to spam to using the Craig's List Email Format as it's attempt to get people to go to their website & do who knows what mischief to people's computers & personal information

I've sent a complaint via the website but wanted to also send a copy of what came in so that you can see how they intentionally made their email look like Craig's List Emails

I tried to post a copy of this on the Craig's List Community Board but it deletes out a lot in copying & pasting there

I hope that you can stop these people & Alert the public of this SPAM SCAM
