craigslist pick-up... what would u do?

if you were donating, free, items of real value (a crib, a double stroller, a sun faded little tikes slide, etc) to a person who on email & phone represented themselves as a struggling single mother and showed up with french tips, highlighted hair, driving an Audi Suv with two Britax carseats in the back... and offers to "tip" you to load the stuff for her.... then what?

  • I would say oh sorry I really can't give this stuff away for such a cheap price.

  • I don't know...I certainly wouldn't want to give the things to her, but I don't know if I would speak up since we arranged for her to be there and she was there to get them. I might be a little afraid that she would do something if I didn't give them to her since she knew my address then...

  • I am irritated when people say on craiglist only for someone in need. Then donate to a shelter.
