There are some folks that just love Craig's list and have never had a bit of trouble with the site.
I, on the other hand, don't trust anything having to do with it. I tried to sell a china cabinet and thought I had it sold. The buyer wanted me to send a picture, which I did. Then they wanted me to take the listing off so no one else would be interested, which I did. Then through personal email, they wanted my home address so they could come see it. All of this with no exchange of money. A read flag went up right then and I told the buyer to send at least half the money and we would set something up. I never heard from them again. I'm not sure what the person was trying to do but it stopped and I haven't used Craig's list since.
