I though I'd make a thread for everyone to share those memorable stories about their experience on Craigslist. I personally have been very fortunate buying used equipment (back-ups, seldom used equipment, etc.) and have yet to be burned. I'd say it's just a matter of knowing what to look for, and being able to turn away if the guy asks to meet in a dark alley in the sketchy part of town. So how has Craigslist worked for you?

I have bought and sold things on Craigslist for years after giving up Ebay. I meet people in public areas. I have bought a couple of commercial mowers that I used for years.Be careful of stolen property. I did have one guy text me about something I had offering to trade a bag of pot and a gun....Having said those 2 items in the same sentence was scary enough. I did forward it to a cop friend and he got a big laugh out of it.
