When you leave the option open to be contacted by potential buyers through email on Craigslist, you also leave the option open to receive spam.
Usually the spam emails are porn related, and usually they just have a sentence or two with a link to a website. (My favorite spam email that comes from Craigslist is one that asks if you want to hook up with a tranny.)

I Love Harry Potter. No, seriously. Love. Capital “L.”
I’m probably the biggest sap you’ll ever meet.
I find kids and babies adorable. I don’t want my own any time soon, but I
do want them.
I like pretty things. Shoes. Photographs. Pieces of furniture.
I don’t like cats because I’m allergic, but I can’t wait for the day that I
can get a puppy.
I’m living the dream when it comes to my career, but even I know that
there’s something more I need to strive for. I just have to figure out what

on the East Coast, so I probably don’t like your team(s).
I’m not hot. Pretty, sure. Cute, yes. Hot, not so much. And I’m OK with
