Exclamation BEWARE! Craigslist Email Phishing Scam Email

Beware of an email scam going around asking you to verify your Craigslist account. This is a fake trying to get your account information.

DO NOT click on the links or give them any information. Just delete the email.

It will look like this:


From: craigslist - automated message, do not reply []

Subject: IMPORTANT - Verify your craigslist account


If not clickable, please copy and paste the address to your browser:


To have an active Craigslist account you need an email account, a IP address, and a phone number that has been call back verified. If these three do not match Craigslist will not allow you to create an account.
When creating a Craigslist account an automated system will call you back to the phone number that you provided. The automated system will says "This is Craigslist calling your pin number is *****." You have to enter this pin number to activate the Craigslist account online!


Please be wary of distant 'buyers' responding to your ad! Many sellers receive replies from scammers hoping to defraud them through schemes involving counterfeit cashier's checks and/or wire transfers. These checks will clear the bank, but the person cashing the check will be held responsible when the fraud is discovered. More info on scams can be found at this web address:


Thanks for using craigslist!
