You may get stuff in your email that looks like this. These link actually will take you to log in screens and once you put your email and pass word in to log into your CL account, now they have your info. The second email is the same stratagy but they want you to believe somthing you posted has been flagged for removal. Sorry if all this has been covered already, just wanted to help out. I am on CL all the time and I am getting pretty good and spotting spammers and scammers in there. One easy rule is.....if you get a responce in your email and they are interested in your Advert..its a scam. Anytime that word is used its a scam. :beer:
