And you can find them everywhere! Hubby gave a guy 4 bucks to fill a gas can yesterday then seen him get in his truck and drive to the casino behind the gas station. Now today, we are trying to sell a boat trailer on craigslist and have someone replying that they are interested. They say they want full contact details and they are going to send a check or money order to us for the product. Here is how I responded! Full Name: Nonya Business Address: 123 Not gonna happen Rd City: In your dreams State: Uranus Zip:8672309 Cell: 1-800-kissmya** Think I was to nice about that??

Without seeing what he's buying, he wants to send you the money. That is strange. Definitely a scammer. These scammers they think we're so desperate that at the sound of money coming in we'll give anything to them. I heard about the dangerous people lurking in craigslist so I never use it.

I get these about once a week. So i always come up with something not so nice to respond with. We don;t take anything but cash in person for something we sell.

Yes that is better. If the buyer can give cash then you know he is a serious buyer.

Craigslist is full of scammers - you have to weed them out.
