Craigslist Account Hackers?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

I posted a few things on craigslist today and I received this email below. Read it and tell me if anyone has ever received an email like this or ever heard about someone trying to comprise or break in to a craigstlist account.  i don't know if this is a legitimate email from Craigslist or if someone is trying to send a virus.  I have no idea.  Any suggestions?

suspend your account.

If you received this notice and you are not authorizes account holder, please be
aware that it is in violation of Craigslist policy to represent oneself as another Craigslist

Go Here and fill out the form. Then inquire about it in the comments box. Then copy and paste a copy of the email with the inquiry. Do not click on any links in the letter.

I've gotten that one too. Craigslist in NEVER going to send you an email like that. Your bank wont either. The only reason they keep trying this scam is because people keep falling for it. You didnt.
