If anyone has ever asked you to purchase something with gift cards, it is a scam. A woman by the name of Anne Fox tried to do that to me. She was selling a 1997 Chevy Silverado 1500 on Craigslist that I was interested in.
I tried calling here, but there was no ring. She insisted on emailing me only because her phone calls were restricted. Once she asked me for eBay gift cards, I blocked her.
