The following is an example of a scammer who was able to get through and respond to a classified ad:
Hi, I’m Yolanda, I saw your ad and I’m interested in it. kindly send some pics of it and your final asking price directly to my email: – email@example.com. Thank you.
Notice the generic language, language that seems slightly off, and the format of the email address. Each one is different but these are some signs to be wary of. Remember to never deal with people you cannot meet in person, and never send money.
