Most people have heard of eBay and others; craigslist still seems to still be a word-of-mouth secret.
We need to sell two large sofas.
Seems like craigslist is a good way to sell things like this – I’ve had some great feedback from friends and colleagues.
Here’s the link – if you’re interested I’ll certainly haggle on price 😉
Ah – the joys of online trading.
Here’s the first scam buyer:
My name is Mr Kelvin Smith,I am highly
interested in making payment for the furniture you
advertised for sale,I am currently in the
UK…..London.So I would like you to let me know how
much you will be selling it cos it really fitts my option,.
So, try to get back to me as soon as you can
and also I hope the set is in good condition, and note that your payment will be made to you via money order.
I think I’ll start a new post with craigslist scam/spam emails 🙂
