I am a music teacher and recently posted an ad on Craigslist. A day or so after posting, I got a suspicious txt msg on my phone (my phone number was included in the ad), one which I have received numerous times in the past. It used to come to me as email but now I am getting text messages.
Here is the msg:
"Hello...How are you doing? My name is Daniel Williams. I want tutor lesson for my Daughter for a month she is 12. I want you to calculate the cost of 2 hours per day for 3 days in a week for the whole Month and the total cost. emauil me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks."
I can't figure why this person wants me to respond. The number of hours a week for lessons is totally bogus. I have taught hour lessons but never three hours. The last time I got this msg, I emailed back that I wanted a phone number to talk to someone and the sender told me s/he had laryngitis.
I did not respond but I do want to know what they are trying to get from me.
