Yea, that occasionally happens to me, too, but I've made numerous successful sales and purchases on CL and no criminals have taken advantage of me. I do believe it's important to open a verbal dialogue with the buyer/seller to have an opportunity to assess the person on the other end of the phone before agreeing to meet, especially on my turf.

I have about a 25% success rate with Kijiji.

Most of the time, it's offers for less than half, or people just asking if you still have whatever you are selling.

I have used CL a few times but always create a gmail account just for the sale. Once there is a dialogue that looks real and promising I give the buyer /or seller my actual email account. This way I only have to put up with the offers I can't refuse for a short period of time. I would never use my real email of cell ph number ( via text or otherwise) on a CL ad.

Yep you get those scam text and email sometimes. Occasionally you will get a call from a 3rd party listing agent wanting to help you sell it.

I personally have crazy good luck with Craigslist. I think I've sold over half a million US dollars of stuff on there in the past 5 years.

Just keep at it and add some o's inatead of 0's in your phone number or write out some of the numbers. I don't allow emails, as I've had zero sales from them. If someone is seriously interested, they will call or text.
