 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Samantha Smith
Email Address:
   samanthasmga@gmail.com
I put an item for $700 on craigslist for sale. \"She\" contacted me via text message on my cell and wanted to know the final price I asked. The number displayed in my cell phone was: 1-662-268-6265 and I was asked to write her an email to samanthasmga@gmail.com.
After I sent her an email (was not suspicious at that time) and email came back offering me MORE than I asked, and telling me she was out of state and would like to get my paypal address for sending me money. By this time I knew she was a spammer and I tried to get her to show me a face on skype (so I could explain the piano and then talk details). She did not take the bait so I stopped coms and reported here. (Found other very similar reports of her in this database as well).
