So, I'm at almost a week of having stuff up (CL), and I refreshed it once. I got one reply, which I took as phishing (asked if I was sure about condition of item and there were SEVERAL clear pictures and if it was still available just after posting) so I let it go without a response.
Today I got two identical messages from a similarly named guy/email at gmail but it said that the e-mail only traced back to CL's server.
Since I asked for a phone number in the first response, and these don't appear to be written in clear English; is it better to give a pass on these?
Is there a way to respond (didn't see one) with a hidden address like Ebay does?
I get a lot of those too. They say things like. "Is your item still available?" They don't mention what you are selling at all and aren't written in proper english. They are tempting to respond too. Especially since I'm not getting any legit offers.
Just ignore them and only respond if the person says they live in the area or mentions what you are selling in their initial email.
Lots of scammers and spammers on CL.
