Have seen adds with the phone # scambled like abc-def-ghij   222-333-4445 Or a combo of #'s and letters so guess it has been going on.

We have not gotten any yet. Thank goodness.

basic rule of craigslist is if something seems off don't bother responding, most likely it's a scam, at the very least it's probably someone who's going to waste your time and not a serious buyer anyways.
