Beware of "Craigslist Inbox Full - Received New Messages" Phishing Scams

The email message below with the subject: "United Nations Arbitration Centre Department," which claims that the recipients have received new messages from Craigslist but their inboxes are full, is a phishing scam. The fake or phishing email message was NOT sent by Craigslist, but by scammers, who are attempting to trick their potential victims into visiting a phishing website that will steal their online accounts' username and passwords, personal and financial information. Therefore, recipients of the fraudulent email message should delete it and not follow the instructions into it.

    My account shows these websites listed on my saved password files in my google account.

    inbox.craigsljst.net, messages.craiigsllist.com, 210.craigslist.org-int.xyz.

    I have no idea how they got there. How is this possible?

    Now i'm worried. I received the msg:

    "Dear user, Your inbox is full, new messages for your item. Read your Craiglist here:
    tap to load Preview
    hxxp://readcl.com"

    And I clicked on it - unfamiliar with craigslist.... what should I do? Have I let those horrible people into my phone? I have an iPhone...

      Clicking on the link will not give them access to your phone unless you have downloaded and installed some malicious app. If you did install an app after clicking the link, remove it.

      And, if you attempted to sign into the page you were taken to after clicking the link, please change all of your online account passwords.

    I have received an email like the one above, slight problem there is no craigslist in England, so I have sent it to my scam blocker, but it is still sending because the email senders keep changing their addresses. The sender code is [95767488. 4584A7B292182DF 14913227@103 .06F.00000152.0254]

    I hope you find it of use.

    What should I do if I clicked the link? It directed me to another site that I closed immediately, but I still accessed it.

      Once you didn't submit your personal or financial information, download and install application, you are OK.

    I get at least one of these a day and I've used craigslist for years and never found any type of message mailbox and knew it sounded fishy. Thanks for confirming my thoughts on the matter.

    Just got one in Yahoo mail. Researched it first before clicking it on.

        If they are in your spam folder, sometimes the links are not clickable, they have to be moved to the inbox, but don't move them, just delete them.

        I just got this one today:
        "ALERT: Your Craigslist Inbox is Full 'action required' "

        I load them into my blocked addresses list every time I get a new one.
