One ad shows the home page to be: www.saleably.com
Also says, "Talk on MSN: firstname.lastname@example.org"
Also says, "E-mail to: email@example.com"
Another ad has the number 661-247-5033 to which to text and it is in California. The ads were all posted in NY. This is all so strange.
Biggest question of all, why didn't they change the e-mail on the account to their e-mail so it wouldn't notify me when someone responded?
Noticed first...site is Chinese from the looks of all the sales models, then I read the location and phone number listed which then was obvious it was based in China and has a “live chat” box which responds “in how can I help you”. Has a feedback revolving box as well. That “address part” seems pasted on to the whole design of the add—looks unprofessionally done.
Phone number I did reverse like you did.
Which you can pay to find the owner of that number..for .99 Intelius, Inc.
But as you said..you are still contacted but then they can still get business in the time you take to fix the hack job.
I am sure you contacted Craig's list—what did they say as in eBay there is a link for immediate response when you have something sent to your e-mail pretending to be eBay or a fake “seller”.
..and maybe they are not that good at “hacking”..and someone is playing with you just because they can ? Now we look at who “would want to do you wrong”. [kidding] ;)
Notice they have PayPal at the bottom—so PayPal might like to know your story . They are good on security.

I had a friend who had his email [msn] hijacked by a company out of Canada selling prescription drugs-Viagra. He had a hotmail address so I would open it—thought why is he sending me this stuff—3 times went by and asked! See at the CC line was a list of people I knew to be parents and friends so
I thought it legit to open. He somehow got it taken care of. I was the only one who eventually said something after 3 months of getting one each month. No one purchased anything from this company. They stopped coming.
The tech Freepers here are second to none and funny to boot. I love them.
