Responding to Craigslist Trolls comment.... If I even remotely thought I was going to have to deal with Craigslist CRAZIES I'd run as fast as I could. Literally, women AND MEN are being murdered from people on Craigslist, and that's all over the Country! If your sixth sense ( and the hairs on the back of your neck) kicks in, you need to CEASE communications and let an admin here know right away. People have been conditioned to ignore that 6th ability, but I'm telling you it's VERY real esp in women. People tell us "oh don't worry so much" or "paranoid much???" Etc.... When you feel uneasy, what was it that made you feel that way? Tone or word choice used in your exchanges? The insistence on meeting right away before you could get another person to go with you? Go over the conversation again, when you were emailing back and forth and then when you agree to meet? With your cell phone, just like a regular phone you CAN block your number from being seen when you call the person you are selling to. And if that item IS expensive? I'd meet the buyer at say a pawn shop you trust so they can properly assess the value of the item in front of the buyer. Or have that research already printed out at home to give to the buyer. When expensive, think SAFETY first! Pawn Shops always have cameras and they usually have a big guy that looks MEAN to boot lol! For the females, if you're scared, take a self defense course, and carry brass knuckles as a key chain. Carry mace and pepper spray ( make sure they work!!!) sometimes, just the ACT of carrying those items can keep you safe. And a word to the people who want porch pickup only??? You are begging to be robbed. On Craigslist, they would meet you at your house and then decline the sale, ONLY In the next few nights to a week, would come back to rob your home. BE SMART and don't deny that voice saying to you "I don't know, this isn't sitting right with me" LISTEN, it's better to be safe than sorry!!!
