  4. Received email from “charles wilson cwilson4luv@gmail.com” regarding my camera for sale.

    Message reads:
    Hello

    am interested in this camera,get back to me with your location and
    more pictures if it is still available,

    My cell no is 561-914-3863

    best regards

    He left his “cell number” so I called it and talked briefly to a man with
    a lot of noise over the phone and in background. I asked if he was in
    _____ (NOT the state I’m in) and he said “yes mumble mumble”. I hung up.

    Anyone wanna anti-spam the hell out of that email address and phone number? Give him a call and share your love for cameras with him—he answered my call…

      1. I just got a response from this person too! Wants my camera. Glad I looked into it before I sent anything.

  5. I have the same spam email but was not lucky. He didn’t respond my call. Then I searched the phone number on google and found this site. Be carefull

    I feel sorry for anyone who got scammed by this, but… C’mon, it’s craigslist… It really is the sellers responsibility to pay attention to whats going on.

  35. I got this one today… started texting with him and realized it was a scam when he offered to pay via paypal plus $250 for shipping. He also mentioned in texts that he’s a marine officer and wanted me to send the items to his son abroad. What a SAD a** life to live!!!!!!!

  36. I received one from Mark Emmanuella today as well. Reading the words “paypal” and “shipping abroad” sent up red flags all over the place. Glad I came across this site.

  39. Watch out for this guy. I did my research once I got this person to identify himself. He will try to text you as well. Thankfully I work in digital marketing so I know how to research a SCAM. Always check into the buyer before you release any information. You find posts like this and know its a SCAM. Secondly if its long distance, it should raise a red flag automatically. Only do deals in person.
