Craigslist is great for a lot of things – you can buy and sell almost anything and you can typically get a great price. Sellers get more than they would if they took their items to a pawn shop or dealership and buyers pay far less than they would at those same places. Unfortunately, you do have to be alert and aware of potential scams, therein is the downfall of Craigslist. This post focuses on the buyer’s guide to Craigslist safety.
These sellers all have three things in common: they’re selling cars (well, they’re [kinda] trying anyway), they’re honest, and they’re funny.
Craigslist can be a great place to publicize items that you’d like to sell. You can rid your home of things you no longer want for, while making a few extra bucks. The one major downfall of Craigslist, of course, is the associated crime so it’s important to take extra measures to ensure your safety.
