    Stinks of a marketing scam to me. I have seen a lot of those lately. Basically they collect all of your information (nobody gets the devices) and then turn and sell it to marketing companies for a nice profit. These are all over FB right now.

    My advice? Steer clear unless you like spam and cold calls.

    Cold calling is what the telemarketers call it.

    Basically you get a phone call asking if you would like to buy something.

    You would be surprised how many people do stuff like this and then wonder why they get tons of junk mail and calls.

    also this has nothing to do with craigslist. It is purely a marketing scam to get your phone and e-mail address so they can bombard you with endless phone calls and e-mails. Since you give them your phone they can say you gave us the number so we don't have to put you on any do not call list. avoid it like the plague.
