I was not aware of this type of scam until I searched for it. I have been scammed, I have all the emails from the sender. They will request an order, give you a wrong address to ship the items to. This person told me it was for a family gathering. Her uncle sent me the check but the amount was in error and more than the order total, so they ask for the balance back to be sent via money gram. What I don't understand is how the check went through my bank, it was never placed on hold. It was deposited an...

"I'll give you $40 extra for holding this item for me and removing it from Craigslist now". Tempting, right? 3) P...

The site advertised a plan to invest in special situations in the stock/option market.
