Unknown Person posting on Craigslist - Casual Encounters w4m

I responded. They then responded back to me, and they deleted their posting. Trying to get me to go to their website. I didn’t respond back to their email. Visited website, but had my security & virus software ready! I did not provide or enter and information on their site.

Scammer posters on Craigslist. People posting personal ads, and when a person responds to the ad. The poster deletes their ad, sends you (the responder) an email confirming their interest. This could be for a variety of things, friends or casual encounters. They won’t give a phone number in their email. They lure out to their fake website or scam servers first.

The scammers try to convince people in a legitimate and harmless looking email, to visit a site. The site is suppose to be some kind of Age Verification service for online safety. It is a PHISHING site/scam/fraud.

If you type in (craig secure) into Google search, there is some talk of them being scammers. Or Safe NSA websites, or Safe Dating scams. Clone websites and people who use Auto-Responders or forum flooders.

When someone visits a site that they have been given a link to, the scammer wants you to enter in some information, such as a Credit Card, once this has been done, your suppose to be able to see more information about the person. The thing with these sites, they will have fake Seal logo's and Media logo's.

Sometimes the sites will have just one profile, usually of the person who you originally contacted, even though it is all a Scam and the pictures are stolen and the person uses a fake throw-away email address, unregistered and secretive websites with little info about them. You will try to look up the email address, and find nothing, look up the site, and sometimes there will be little available, or they haven’t been published on Google yet.


There seems to be some (Age Verification) Phishing Scams. They TRY to convince responders that their website verifies people's age. Not true, they just want your Credit Card information...

DON'T fall for those (w4m 24-32 Ads) - I'm just looking for some nsa fun, I don't have anyone to cuddle me...

Report suspected Traps. FLAG them, and keep note of the Posting # and Time and Date. Especially if you responded. Keep Emails and any other information. Make sure to HAVE EVIDENCE!!!

Scammers will often Remove postings once they get enough replies. That means they lured a few (potential) victims. You need to prove that they're messing with you.

Yep, scam.
Amber Porter.
You can check "her location" on the page source for the site, it uses Javascript to be the same as your city or close to.
Thanks for the heads up. I wouldn't put my credit card details online unless it was in a site that I knew was genuine and secure, but it saves time knowing that the person I'm trying to communicate with is someone who doesn't exist.

Here's another one from Allie Timons:

hey again
I am interested in something thats long term, NSA. I kinda want to keep this discreet - my ex-boyfriend is kinda a psycho ever since we broke up. haha.. 3.5 year relationship. Anyways.. I don't know if I told you or not yet, I have a daughter who is 22 months old, but she will always be sleeping by the time you come over...
This is my first time doing this kinda thing online - so Im kinda iffy about it.

I dont use any messengers - only one that I use at work...
i was hoping we could stay in contact from a free site if your interested in making it long term... my profile is at http://www.allie.nsameetnow.com I have my cell phone number on there - if you want to send me a text and we could get together tonight or tomorrow night - that would be great., , , im signing off the computer now though, hope to hear from you.

I feel like a complete idiot but the fact is it happened and now I have to fix it, and although it says we can cancel at anytime, it leaves no contact number or email and I feel like I wont be able to undo what I've done.. Im just hoping someone out there can tell me otherwise lol.. please help !
