I'm not sure if this is in the right board, but I figure a fair amount of crabbers use Craigslist, either to sell or find supplies.
I post to CL regularly looking for hermit crabs and/or supplies. Last night I received an email from a person, which simply said,
Kindly get back to me if your ad for the pet is still on for sale > Thanks Angell.
I thought the wording was odd because it was a reply to one of my posts looking for hermit crabs, not selling them. I replied back clarifying the purpose of my post but something didn't sit right with me.
A few hours later I got the same email from the same person, replying to a different post of mine. However, the second post was an ad I put up on a CL board hundreds of miles away from the original post this person inquired about (I travel a lot).
I reported both emails to Craigslist as spam, and I'm 99.9% sure that's what they are. Unfortunately, I replied to the first once so it's likely my email will be put on some cruddy spam-bot list. Luckily, I don't use my main email account for Craigslist stuff. I hope someone can learn from my mistake-- not all spambots or scammers are going to be obvious. If you get an email that seems too vaguely worded, just ignore it or report it as spam.

Nothing. I realized about a week after I posted this that CL anonymizes your email address when you reply to somebody. They can see your name in the reply email but not your actual email address. I guess CL has thought of everything.
