Craigslist you can count on the following"
1. no shows
2. fake e-mails and texts asking for your name and address.
3. e-mails and text asking if it is still available.**ad is up still available in ad
4. people asking you to meet half way..(in my state the whole state can be traversed in under and hour)..and then don't show.
5. people asking you to hold items..and never show.
6. people offering half of what you are asking for items.
7. if they just cut and paste some of your ad with nothing else..it's fake
8. always have pictures and size if possible.
9. always have customers call you first before coming to buy items.
10. look at the number when they call..most instates are somewhat legit..almost all out of state numbers..can be cranks over the computer calling.
hope some of this helps..I've been buying and selling on craigs lists for years
True teddy, but I've also had serious haunters come and pay whatever I've asked and walk away leaving me with a less-stuffed basement and more-stuffed wallet! One other thought Garthgoyle, if you're willing to ship, I always post on here with the lowest price I'm willing to go. Lots of luck selling small stuff, not so much with the bigger stuff. I guess a lot of DC, MD, and VA haunters don't hang out here!

Lol, yeah, I only allow people to come to the house if my husband is home... We've not had any problems. If the person is interested in one or two things, I usually bring them up from the basement, but several people have been interested in a bunch of different things. Those folks I'll take down to the basement. Two different times, the people have walked out with even more than they thought they were interested in! ����
