While I have been on the internet for many years I have always been skeptical enough to avoid any scams. I guess I must be getting old and stupid because recently I replied to an ad on craigslist (never do that again) for a work from home position. Thank God I didn't send them anything too personal, like SS# or DOB but I did send my name address and phone number, only to discover that the "position" was posting the same scam ad I answered. Other than getting people's personal info and e-mail I don't really see the purpose of this scam. Of course the possibilities scare me, what do they do with this info? Use it to rob you? Does anyone know anything about how this "fake ad" works?
