LetGo / potential scam

United States Review updated:

I posted an item for sale (Canon camera) on 11/28/17 and shortly thereafter I received a request from "Patrick Cohen" to text more pictures of the item to a phone number [protected]. A short time later I checked my messages on the app and the original message sent to me by Patrick Cohen was deleted and it now says "account pending moderation". I am concerned that Patrick Cohen is not a real person and is asking sellers to text to his number under the pretense that he wants to buy an item. He then gets their cell phone number for who knows what purpose.

    I had the exact same thing happen to me to day for a phone I was trying to sell for $200. The exact same thing happened. They asked for the cell number, then requested more pictures, then offered to pay thru paypal, then the "Pending Moderation" thing happened in Letgo account. They've since stopped responding to texts.
