I just listed an item Saturday. I make them reply using the Craigslist email relay. First reply said "Don't reply through Craigslist. Email me directly at xxxxx." Deleted it.

the way the scam works is they request payment to that e mail through a reloadable credit card.
then once the money is on the card, they simply disappear.
since the prepaid card and email are non traceable, they get away free.

Data collection.
They collect your FB name AND your email address.
Soon to follow your phone number, name of your favorite pet, street you grew up on, schools you went to, first grade teachers name, favorite food, cars you owned, date you were born, what year you got married, citys you lived in, beer you drink, how you vote, where you work, then on to your passwords.

I'll list my cell number on CL ads and get the scammers texting me requesting my email.
The reply is always a big F U
