Whats up with Craigslist?

I put 2 ads in there trying to get rid of a T.V and a toddler bed, and I have had like 3 people email me telling me they will send the payment over mail in a check form. For me to cash it call them so they can pick it up and give the pick up guy $50.00 from the check. Just letting you people know that this is a scam and if it happens to you just ignore it. So, do anyone of you know another website that I can sell stuff on and not get junk emails?

  • It happens every time I post on there. I just delete the emails and wait for real ones.

    I would delete it and wait for a real deal.

  • Eww, that's aggravating... Don't give up on Craigslist though, I've had great experiences both selling and buying. The right buyer will come along.

  • No worries, but thank you for the warning. The only ad I have up on craigslist right now is my resume (minus personal/contact information).
