A friend recently forwarded us the email below because they thought it was a scam. They were right. This email is a great example of three easy ways to detect a scam.
Thank you, useful article
Also "Hello" or Dear customer" instead of your name is a good sign of a scam.
the use of the phrase in the email message 'an issue on...' generally should be coming out of india. here people from all walks of life use the word 'issue' frequently..."how many issues do you have?" means how many children. "what is the issue with your neighbor" means what is happening with the people around your house...and so on.
Thank you - I had no idea you could hover over a link in an e-mail so that it would show you something else than what was typed there. I believed it would lead me where it said. I had no idea that an .exe file could be hidden there.
This was the most useful article I've read!
I found this information extremely helpful. It confirmed what I had already suspected were clues for a scam. I am glad you made this information so easily accessed and understand.

Do not publish 'For Sale" & etc. items on Craigs list. There are more scams on that site than any other one I know of. To Bad. Wish Craigs List could somehow block these kind of outside communications to potential sellers. Be very leary, watch English usage, spelling in sentences, or they act interested in your item for sale, but do not mention "what" that item is. Asking for personal info. Let them know you are on to them and then Block them from your email
