Help with my Craigslist issue
The issue in GetHuman-stopab's own words
I received a text message with a link asking for credit card info to pay a CL fee of $.** to upgrade my status before CL would release emails from numerous potential customers inquiring about my posted item for sale. This is the text message: "You have ** new buyer messages for your craigslist item, to read them upgrade and visit: http:**migtri.org*craigslist.org*?messages******". The text came from mobile * **********. Please advise.*My name is Gary Ellison*Item listed is an electric winch*My mobil * is ***********My email address is *****@***.com
