  • Scammers on craigslist..

    I was sellling something for 250, and this random dude emails me asking if its available..

    i said yes.

    he/she said that they'd pay $330 if I can ship it.. and that they'd paypal it to me...

    I already figured it was a scam (who raises the price??)..


    so i emailed back simply "$450"

    he said "Okay thats fine, give me the details of your paypal"

    I said "Oh actually its going to be $550"

    lol...

    he finally said no thats too much

    I hate that kind of stuff!

    When I sell/buy on craiglists, I always do it locally. That way if somebody tries to cheat me, I know where they live or what kind of car they drive...and I'll beat their ass until I get my money back.

                    That's funny.

                    I like craigslist but ebay is better. You should try selling your item on ebay you might have better luck.

                        At this point, it's way beyond whether or not he sells it!

                        It's now all about entertainment value!!
