    So I'm currently looking for a new apartment in Manhattan and posted in the 'housing wanted' section. I've been getting a huge number of replies, mostly bs Nigerian scammer types but a few pretty clever CPA attempts as well. This is one email I just received:

    I think the real lesson here is the best way to discover clever ways to make CPA money on craigslist is to put some legit posts out there and see what other people are doing.

    The other lesson is don't expect to actually find an apartment by posting in that section...

    I'm going to copy and paste that email right now and start on copying the method exactly. Thanks so much for the idea!*

    *End sarcasm :D

    That's actually a pretty creative way to get someone to fill out a credit report and it sounds like the person emailing is actually legit.

    It's thorough and convincing replies like the example above that get the job done. Shit, I might have filled the offer as the prospective tenant if I didn't already know the game.
