Just want to give everyone a heads up. I got an email the other day from a guy on an ad I had in the classifieds. Only I never posted that ad. I've never owned one of those to even sell. So I checked my listings and there's multiple items listed under my username and my email but a different phone #. I call the # multiple times and no answer. I went to go change my password and see the email in my profile has been changed by 1 letter. What I'm thinking the scam is is to use a legit username but change the email in the profile so that when you hut the email button in the ad, it goes to the scammers email. Luckily I think the guy that emailed me punched the address in manually since the ad luckily had my correct address in it.
Moral of the story is go check the "your listings" tab in the classifieds every so often. I didn't have a clue this was happening because the ads were over a week old.
