Scammers shift to scams through text messages
DENVER – Craigslist scammers are targeting sellers to try to get your stuff without paying for it. Using a laptop computer for sale on Craigslist on Monday morning, potential buyers were asked to text. By the afternoon, 12 people had responded to the ad and all of them had similar stories. Each buyer wanted to pay immediately through PayPal. Each buyer also wanted the computer shipped out of the country.
