Craigslist Personals: Ads You Should Flag Immediately Type 3
The third type of ad that usually guarantee you found a scammer is shown in the screen shot below. This ad is pretty simple. The girl wants to give you everything a guy would want and get really nothing in return. There is nothing wrong with that. But none of the critical personal information is available in the ad. What I mean is that other than the age, there is nothing that says "human" in this ad.
The real deal breaker and is the criteria for identifying this ad as a scammer bot is the fact that there is no location.
Fact is, most real people put down their city. They want to find someone that is close to them. Whether a person realize it or not, subconsciously, everyone is looking for convenience. A person close by means you'll have more fun, more often, more conveniently scheduled.
Scammer bots likes to avoid putting down a city, because they'll get more responses from a much wider area. People who may not respond to ads outside a specific city may be enticed to respond to an unspecified city. Don't fall into this trap. Flag this type of ad immediately.
If it is a real person? What's the chances the person is in your city? He/she should learn how not to get flagged (see "How to Avoid Getting Flagged?" article).
