    Are they trying to SCAM me on Craigslist with paypal?

    I have four people asking to buy rings from me.  Two of them want & insist on me using paypal for them to send money to me for the rings. I prefer cash and them to wire me the money and then I will ship. I also prefer talking with them and having a reference/address/DMV info, etc. before I send the items; however, they insist on using paypal. Some of the language in two of the e-mails is very similar from a Frank Moore and Teresa Williams. Teresa is from California supposedly, but won't give me her address or phone number and insist on me giving her my paypal email address ASAP to may me.

    Ignore these people. A serious buyer would contact you. I tried to sell my recumbent bike - and the only responses I got is folks who :

    1: want to buy it -sight unseen and with a check yet
    2: won't call me nor give their info so I can call them

    email address mining or check scammers?

    Just ignore, ignore, ignore

    Hi,
    Be careful there are lots of scams going on through Paypal an lost about $100. Best way to deal is cash.

    PayPal is common way to pay for products on eBay and between people. It's not necessary a scam, but PayPal itself is a hassle sometimes.

    >>Teresa is from California supposedly, but won't give me her address or phone number

    This is scam for sure. They either trying to rip you off or item is stolen, so they trying not to reveal their info. In any case the deal is off.

    Usually scammers trying to rush you for payment without revealing their identity. You have to watch out for this kind of red flags.

    Be safe y'all smile
