Craigslist Personals: What Can You Expect from a Chicago Area Code in LA
As you may have known by now, I have been browsing and posting on the Craigslist in the LA area (IE to be exact). These last few days, I get numerous responses from Chicago area codes (224, 312). That's strange. The response is always brief with a number for you to text. Something like the following:
I am now hot and so horny I want enjoy with u this is my personal phone no .. 3125266189 just text me.
My standard reply is always the following, because most responses are just bots:
Let me know you are real by sending me your stats, your city, your pic, and your favorite colors.
Usually, I either get no response or a response that has nothing to do with my request. The response usually just emphasizes the number to text. But just now, I have received a fairly shocking one:
inland empire casual / favorite colors pink / and my pic
That piqued my interest, because it seems like a real person responding. Otherwise, I've been giving them so much shit, they actually program the bot to handle my challenge. It's getting interesting. So I have initiated communication via SMS. Here is the transcript:
Me: I received a response from you for my CL ad. 12:08 AM
Me: Tell me about yourself. 12:08 AM

Me: I don't get excited or emotional with your all talk but no show. 12:23 AM
+13125266189: did you join?... Let me know if you're in sweetie, you should see mycam or I can re send my profile invite again if u need... 12:23 AM
Me: I'm a computer scientist, so it's actually more interesting for me to figure out if you are a bot or a real person than fantasy about a fake person. 12:24 AM
+13125266189: sorry to rush you but u got me horny !! have you found my profil yet? Time to release some stress ;) lol 12:24 AM
Me: Looks like you are a bot. 12:25 AM
+13125266189: hmmm im so wet lol is that u connecting? I'm gonna put on my outfit now , Just type here or in the chat when u can see me undressing ;) 12:26 AM
By now, it is obvious that it is just a bot. So there is no point in continuing with this charade on SMS. Instead, I send an e-mail back:
Just curious. Are you a bot or a human? Are you located in Chicago?
I don't expect a response, but we'll see.
