Default NEW Dirty Trick Phishing Scam on Craigslist...

I usually have something for sale on Craigslist everyday and getting flagged once in a while is just business as usual.

Well today I received a email that one of my listings got flagged, but this one was unusual because it had a link to "Remove flag from listing".

I was thinking WOW, thats pretty clever...these scammers will get a lot of users to click on that! LOL

(EVERYTHING looks very legitimate in the actual email)

Just to get someones CL account information I would assume?

When you click on the link, it asks for your account name and password... typical phishing scam.
