I fell for it as I have an ad out on Craigslist and someone said they needed it to verify I was not a scammer.

Hi Daniel Hinten, welcome to the Google Voice User Forum!
 
It's a scam.  Basically, what the person on the other side is doing is using YOUR real phone number to authorize a new Google Voice number for them to use.  
 
What this means to you is:
  1. Your data / phone / account is not compromised in any way - you just let them get an un-verified number.
  2. You can not use this number in the future to create a Google Voice number for yourself.
Google will never request this type of verification (and they even tell you when you get the call to NOT give this number to anyone else).  
 
Hope this helps!

They do it to get a number from Google.
They aren't scamming you, they are using your help to scam Google out of a number.
