I put some stuff on craigslist and I keep getting responses from domains ______.usa.com with the blank part a state or city. Are these scam emails or some system craigslist uses?

I assumed they were. I checked usa.com and anyone can get a free email. Also, the emails kept asking for the description and condition of the product when it was clearly listed. Thanks for the response.

Every scam attempt I got from Craigslist was linked to a USA.com email addy.

I keep getting emails from people that say they want my 'item', never even naming the item. Most of the emails don't even have the item listed in the email subject, like it should be by default. They don't reply to my reply either. Are they just harvesting email addresses?

I'm new to selling there, but none are from .usa.net yet. They are:
rediffmail.com, tmail.com, and peoplepc.com
