Default Scammer Alert - Please Flag this CL Post!

Rennlisters, please watch out for the below scammer that has listed my car for sale on Craigslist and is asking for deposits. Please flag this post if you come across it. I appreciate it.

The seller is utilizing the email [email protected], and several phone numbers in Boulder CO and Pennsylvania. He goes by the name "Walter Lee," and "Young".

I have alerted my local authorities and Craigslist, but the ad does not seem to want to go down.

Thank you! - Garrett

If enough of us flag the CR advertisement I think they will take it down.

I wonder how many flags it takes. I contacted the police and they said they will try to figure out how to take it down.

Just worried some poor person is going to get scammed out of a deposit. Thanks for the response Jason!

Police will NEVER do anything- Your title should just ask people to FLAG the ad- Thats the only way it will come off. Had this issue last month with a 964 i was selling and asked people here and on pelican to flag and it was gone within an hour.
