i use craigslist all the time. You do have to be careful though. I get several emails everytime that are bogus but you can weed them out pretty quick. Most are mispelled or really poor grammar. I also do not ship things from craigslist. I do all craigslist deals in person.

Be careful about overpayments. A scammer would send you a check that's worth more than the purchase and he'll ask that you give him the change in cash. It's a common scam in CL.

By the way, I'm new here! I couldn't find an introduction page so I'll just say hi here!

Never heard of such scams before, Thanks Off Road forums to bring such kind of escrow and other such scams into notice. I hope now the general public will buy more smartly and ask before buying. Also, Checks is what i think, yes collect cash than checks, donno if the other party go out off funds..
