Has anyone fallen for the Craigslist verification code scam and if so, what was the result?

I posted an ad on Craigslist and a few minutes later received a message from a potential buyer asking me to send them a code so they could verify I am for real.

I told them yes, but then when I saw it was associated with a link, I responded and said no and cut off contact with the person. The link and the text were not in English. I didn't click on the link or send them the code.

Has this happened to anyone else?? It sucks that people are still devising new ways to scam people. This is why I'm so suspicious of people and technology.

Has this happened to anyone else?! Did anything happen with your Google account or phone number?
