selling items

I put up for sale a car hauler and i was looking for a pool handrail. both were flagged and removed yet both were in the correct spots, makes no sense. its funny they can remove a legit item but can't seem to get ride of the scammers who are forever trying to get you or screw up your computer.

I frequently use Craigslist

Hi there I am a "Craigslister"..and a happy one!! I have posted ads looking for, Housing, Rooommates, and selling unneded items and answered seveals ads for items for sale, from furniture to cars etc, and have had good experiences I highly recommend answering and posting ads on Craigslist A rommate here got several jobs via the Craigslist as well, and I have used the services of some of the trades such as plumber, electrician, cleaning crew, child care provider, and so forth, who had ads on the Craigslist Good luck to all of you..:))

Electronics sellers are nuts!!!

Many of the electronics listed are at retail prices!! (sometimes even above rp) with no warranty of any kind. They flood the site and makes it hard to have a good experience.

We love to shop Craigslist

It is so easy to clean out my house or garage by putting an ad on Craigs list. I have found so many things that we needed at a reasonable price by checking on Craigs list first. You have nothing to lose! Start there first.

Craigs List Horror Story

I posted on Craigs List--and had my email account and phone number hijacked by someone selling automobiles and boats in Texas. I received phone calls from hotels for room reservations and clients wanting to buy cars on my cellular number which were not my posts. When I used the complaint lines to report this the result was they closed my account to me and accused me of being the scammer. There is no customer service line you can try to straighten this out and the scammers send you emails threatening to kick you off Craigs List if you do not respond to their email links to confirm your account. Scared to use Craigs List ever again--and it is still not straightened out. There needs to be an investigation of these people.

Tried two times to rent a room in my home. Got an immediate notice that my ad contained unacceptable words, which it did not. Put add up again, all I got were scam responses (14) from some person in different countries in Europe who were "moving to the US. Never saw my ad on Craigslist. Will never use it again.

Unexpected at times, but happy ending

Well I have used Craigslist several times. I looked at buying some items and also looked at jobs. I used it also for the personals. Found a thing some guy posted about a friend and also met a few people. Had some good and bad. But last time I used the personals I had no intention of getting serious with anyone. Just posted to get back out and dating. But actually ended up meeting the love of my life and are engaged to be married. So even thru all the bad I got a pretty good deal. :)
