My email box is full of spam from CraigsList.com. "Kayla Selans" (not the scammer's real name) sent me soo many emails this morning that the scammer got my full attention so here is a blog post just for her dating verification scam. This scam is the CraigsList dating verification scam, where she sends you to a web site so she can verify who you are, and "safe to meet" in person . I have included the email address, scam web sites and the emails that I have received from "Kayla".
Scam Email Addresses:
Kaylaselans@hotmail.com- It seems like this scammer is only using the one email address (at the moment) to send spam emails to people who contact them through CraigsList.com. I don't recommend you click on any links you receive in the spam emails because you may get a virus from them.
Web Sites Associated With This Scam:
- Verified-Hookups.com (fake CraigsList online verification service)
- Billing-Select.com (The billing support company that handles all the complaints)

Thanks for replying to my random ad on here! I'm bored at work and brought my new ipad, hope my boss doesn't catch me cause these dumb computers we use here have all the good sites blocked. anyways about me,I can be very wild especially when I drink but kind of shy at the sametime. I like to have fun, and I've told that I'm cute lol. attached some piccs, so you can be the judge 😉
To be honest I'm too shy to go out and meet wiith guys cause i'm new to this area. Moved here for work from a small town 2 hours outside of the city, I'm really excited and ready to just hook up and have some fun, so I hope you're looking for the same. At the same time, I'm kinda afraid & excited to meet people through cassual encounters. A friend of mine met some kookoos here and said i had to be very careful.
Not trying to throw you off though, I definitely want to try this, I just wanna make sure you're SAFE, real and serious before we actually get together :). Hopefully you respect my safety cause it will be worth it. 🙂
I hope you like my cute kitten Dolce. Looking forward to talkign with you 🙂
ps. Dolce says meow

Heyy again 😛
Glad I heard back from you! I'm not crazy about typing on this ipad. Lets actually get off this email thing and if you want you can text before you call. I"m using this verifcation site that keeps my number safe from the crazies. If you care about my safety you'll verify and then call. My number is on my profile once you verifiy. A girls gotta be safe after that we can do all the unsafe stuff you want. 🙂 i'm not a fan of protection 😉

I was shocked to learn that this dating verification sham has been going on for many years. I have no clue why CraigsList.com can't stop these scams, so I feel that I should give everyone the heads up with these blog posts.

These 3 dating sites below don't do any type of verification. They are real adult dating sites and there is nothing to verify. All you do need to do is sign up for free (no credit card) and then you get free access to watch local girls on web cam for free and also get access to the free adult chat rooms. There is no type of verification process, you just sign up for free and start looking around at who you might be interested in. Simple as that.
- AdultFriendFinder (the largest adult dating site has free webcam &chat rooms.)
