Craigslist buyer wanting me to use paypal to sell item 
This person responded via text to furniture I had advertised on craigslist and wanted me to set up a paypal account so she could buy it. I googled her number and came across another report on Scamdex that listed two phone numbers for this person, but when I searched Scamdex specifically for the 9368737418 number it didn\'t return any hits because it had been previously tacked on the other number 2145563188. I wanted to report the 936 number separately so people could find it if they searched. I\'ll copy/paste the previous scamdex report for this person. Also, she told me her name was Melissa and it looks like she\'s used Michelle as a name too.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
