Classified Ads Scam
| Likely classifieds scam - asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org in a text from 0017146942771|
I thought that was a bit strange because: a) I\'d included the price in the ad, b) the phone number looked international, c) they hadn\'t emailed the address in the ad, even though they seemed to want to communicate that way, and d) the structure of the message was... odd.
Once I saw a few hits for that email address in Scamdex, I thought it best to assume the whole thing wasn\'t a legitimate enquiry.
