Scammer Information Details of Scam Report
My experience is identical to another post I saw here. I became suspicious and decided to Google "Laura Monti marine engineer". That led me to this site. After reading about this scam I had no further communication with them. Thanks for the post!
I too received a text message in response to a Craigslist ad I posted. Then I received the following email response once I emailed them. This scam happened on Craigslist in the Fort Wayne IN area:
