What about users that have a profile,mostly. They still asked for email or phone number. This is just happening on one item.

I wouldn't give out any personal information as there is no telling what they will do after they get your personal info.

@Get_some they can call you as several different agencies. One of the most popular scams involves the IRS. They can request money or get the police involved. They can also do the same via email.
