I recently posted an ad on Craigslist for the sale of some furniture items I no longer have any use for. I then received a text message from the above listed number from a person claiming to be \"Michelle Scott\". She began the conversation like an interested buyer, asking what condition it was in, if I was the first owner, and for additional photos. I responded with them, and she proceeded to inform me that she would love to pay me via PayPal and that any additional charges would be on her. She told me to get back to her with my PayPal email and my name, or to send her a PayPal invoice so that she could pay me right away, and she would arrange a pick up after the payment was received. She also wanted me to confirm the sale by removing my Craigslist posting. With that my suspicions began to arise, and a simple Google search of her email address \"Michellescott455@gmail.com\" and the phone number she texted me from \"214-612-2880\" returned multiple Scam Alerts associated with this individual for similar if not identical situations.
