I received a response, now what do I do?

I'm going anon on this because I feel really stupid having to ask this. I'm not a troll. This is just my 1st time posting an ad on craigslist. I'm trying to downsize since I have a lot of things in my apartment that I'm not using and could really use the money.

I placed something for sale and someone responded that they are interested. I don't know what to do from here.

Do I give them my address?

I know it sounds incredibly dumb and I'm sorry.

  • Nooooo, do not give your address. If it is an item that can be easily transported, meet the buyer at a public location.

  • What is the item? If it's something that is easy to move, have them meet you at a public place. If it's a big, heavy piece of furniture, it may be more difficult, but I still wouldn't give them your address yet. I'd try to find someone who can help you get the item to a more public location, or at least to a storage unit or something, where you're not giving them you're address. If you resort to a storage unit, take someone with you when you meet the buyer there.

  • omg, please ignore my "you're address" that should have been "your address." I promise, I really do know which one to use! Honest!!

    And PandaGwen made a good point, too - don't go straight home.

  • Whatever you do , do not give them your address...there are a lot of weirdos out there...just make plans to meet them some other place than home and bring someone with you...

  • I second and third Tasches' opinion. Meet at McDonald's or Starbucks or something.

  • I've made 2 purchases where I met the person at a McDonald's. It's so much safer. I trust no one.

  • Oh please do not give them your address! Meet INSIDE a public place. Taco bell perhaps. And....do not go straight home afterwards. Go run errands and criss cross around town.
