Just thought I'd pass this along to everyone. I got a scam attempt yesterday from someone that tried to use my TMI that I have listed here and on Craigslist Chicago. The "buyer" tried using the "I want to send you a six digit code" scam to get into my Google stuff. I called them out, they called me a few names, and that was that. DO NOT REPLY TO THAT. They texted me, and the phone number that showed up was 317-602-1185. It's an Indianapolis area code, but it's probably hooked up to a phone in Nigeria. EVERYONE BE CAREFUL!

same here. "there are so many scams on the internet these days. to verify it's you, I will send a 6 digit code" then later, "i just need the code" I'm lucky my buddy was into the post and is a phd computer guy. I called him up and he said it allows them access to your whole google account. Buyers beware. I buy local, and normally have no problems with craigslist, but I've told irs, social security, you name it that I don't trust them and if they want me to call them back refer me to your official site. I'll call YOU don't call ME. peace and stay safe. oh and sellers beware too. I've had a couple of those as well, "fishing"
