The jewelry incident was in downtown Los Angeles, a haven for crime. At my mountain home, their are many marijuana crops hidden away in the mountains. They are serviced by the Mexican Mafia who use ATVs to reach these remote sites. There have been many raids by the DEA and USFS. You can't be too careful or naive that nothing will ever happen to you. Just be careful and trust your instincts in doingthese transactions if something doesn't seem quite right, is all I'm saying...

That reply is definitely the beginning of a scam.

And we did. It's better for that language and inference to be used somewhere else. It's not going to fly here.

If anyone was offended please accept my apologies. That was not my intention and it was not directed to anyone on these forums. I was simply trying to communicate my great disdain for these parasites that try to prey on people and the tactic I used to ward them off.

Again, my apologies.

Pretty vivid and pretty gross.

I sold my Class A on CL and lots of furniture on Kijiji. It is pretty easy to determine the tire kickers and other idiots out there and these will not stop me from using these two sites. One thing I ask is phone # and name. I then do a reverse lookup to see if it is legit. I, as others do, create a new email address for whatever I sell and then delete it after the sale.

I advertised a car for sale I got back the same canned email with the same name asking the price and they would purchase the car for my asking price sight unseen. All I needed was a PayPal account and if I didn't have one I should open one. They said they wouldn't deal with with cash or checks only paypal. Checked into it and it is a scam. Got ano ther email with the words different name.Just take care when dealing with CL.

Eye opening thread.

I've bought/sold many things on CL, never ever negotiated.
If the buyer tries I don't kill the deal just say "you're my first call on this, call me back in a few days".
I do my home work, know what a good price is AND post quality pictures.
If the sellers picture aren't any good I ask for more/better pictures or just move on.
I DO NOT put OBO in the add, DO NOT give # or email till a public meeting has been set!

Only 1 scam attempt, offer to pay 25% MORE for my motorcycle.

All others has been very enjoyable, for both of us .

When selling anything, any kind of way (which I do a lot)........please note, I am not your bank.

If your check is good, that's great! That means that they will give you cash if you go down there and pull cash out. Go do that first, before paying me. I don't want to go there, and I fear being surprised when I do. Not my job. If you don't want to carry that amount of cash around, don't buy stuff at my price.

Just sold a X thousand dollar trailer, and the guy is bringing cash. Good for him, he volunteered, I didn't ask. That way I can deposit cash, and it will be credited to my account, bingo bango. Any other way, not so.
