Well, darn. It looks like the Craigslist iPad scammers took our advice. These enterprising folks would pose as the company CEO, e-mail Craiglist posters, informing them that they had won a free iPad. Of course, the name they used wasn’t even the CEO of Craigslist, and free iPad might arrive only when the “winner” completes a bunch of affiliate-payout offers. Now the scamsters are using the name of Craigslist founder Craig Newmark. He’s not giving you an iPad, either.
