I know on Craigslist some people are running a scam where they ask for your ebay user name, full name and address. I have no idea how it works though...

Deborah, I noticed we have Mark Lisanti as a mutual FB friend. What's he like in real life? He cracks me up.

the craigslist one tries to trick you by telling you that you're going to purchase through ebay which you aren't and makes this fake invoice with your name and information in an email from "buyer protection service" saying all these things about the trade money for tickets and that you won't be charged until the tickets are received and inspected but they want you to send your money through western union to an ebay broker who will release the money to the other party as soon as you say that you have the tickets and they are legit. SCAM

I mean, honestly, anyone who falls for that deserves it. The people running these types of scams are scum, but how can you be so dumb as to fall for it.
