Please help! Let me know if I have this right. The most common Craigslist or personal ad scam is that an ad is placed that is bogus. You then reply to the ad. The bogus person asks you to go to another website for their "security". Then you have to sign up giving persoanl information and possibly payment information. Am I correct?

Just wondering, has anyone ever heard of a scam where they actually access your computer/email outbox and send a message with pictures of you attached? Or, is my hubby trying to scam me?!

I desperately want to believe him. He has greater computer knowledge than I, but my common sense tells me this is not possible.

He is right, this is possible.

I don't know if it is the "biggest" scam out there right now, but it is possible and does happen.
