It works for some things

I have been using craigslist since 2001. It works well for selling your used furniture or other items for reasonable price. I have also found a few promotional jobs through craigslist, as well as shared housing. But, since it is free and anonymous to place an ad you have to be use common sense and screen out scammers. And people looking for roommates will often take advantage of their roommates, they don't care because they'll just put in another free ad. If a person is not savvy about reading people or is naïve about using the internet I would not recommend they use craigslist. Since every jerk or idiot can post a scam post these days, there are more of them on the internet.

Available to work in your office

I placed a professional resume looking for a job. what I got was people wanting me to clean or babysit. Very insulting. but the worst were the scams. This is how it goes. A scammer advertises work from home, do my emails collect my packages do my shopping etc. They send you a chack for the upfront expenses. during that month your hear nothing about the check you put in your bank account. you go out and spend that money buying the items they requested you mail off to a PO box somwhere. 45 days later the check bounces. you are now out of pocket. I had one the other day asking for all my info I turned right back around and asked for his and the name of his art gallery in Sydney . he never wrote to me again...

Cheapest appliance repair in the Valley!

I hired [name deleted by About.com Phoenix Guide] to fix an appliance. He charged me over $150. The next day the appliance stopped working. I called and told him that the appliance stopped working and he never returned to fix it. Don't hire him! His number is [phone number deleted by About.com Phoenix Guide]. (Note from About.com Phoenix Guide: sorry, but I don't print complaints with names and phone numbers here. Hopefully you paid in a manner that allows you to stop payment or protest the credit card charge. To find out how to file a complaint, check here: http://phoenix.about.com/od/scam1/a/complaint.htm]

ad for frying pan results in 'sex' offer

I put an ad for a chicken fryer and received numerous responses from sexy ladies (of the night?) with their nude pics in suggestive positions. I've tried to notify cl but don't think I ever got thru This is disgusting.

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.

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.
