Being Safe

Level 3
I look at my profile with items I have for sale. It’s a public list of items I have in my home. This definitely factors my meeting place. Very large items such as a sofa, I might give them my home address but only if they have a verified profile with a legitimate picture and reviews. I’ve had a few people contact me for small items. I list my area of town in the post. When I ask them to meet in a public place and they don’t respond, it’s a red flag. I block those individuals. They may only be flaky, but I don’t take any chances. Being safe is very important.

Hi @LA7 your totally on the right track being safe, if I have a large item and can’t get it to a public meeting place or safe zone, I always have the item in my drive way, and only in the day time hours with friends around. 👍
Level 9

There are too many crazy people out there so I would never permit any one that I did not know come over to my home.
