One other scam worth mentioning involves phone numbers. They run a software against sites such as Craigs List which searches for anything that looks like a phone number, and collect them for soliciting. That’s why you’ll see a lot of people posting on CL will disguise their phone number, like eight 5 five dash 4 nine nine 2760. (no, it’s not a real number that I’m aware of.) It is so the “bots” as they are known, don’t get ahold of their phone number.
