Craigslist users....

How effective is using craigslist to sell your stuff?
Do you use other alternatives as well?
Also I just received several emails from random people wanting me to download something. Do you guys get those type of scams too?

  • I used it for a while a couple of years ago and didn't find it very effective. I kept getting spam mail, too. I reported them to Craigslist and they never bothered me again. I switched to using Ebay and that worked out a lot better.

  • I just bought a really nice entertainment center on Craigslist and my son has bought quite a few things including low profile tires with nice rims DELIVERED, but you do have to be careful. There are always going to be scammers. I replied to a job posting and got spammed for MONTHS afterwards. I also tried selling something and had really stupid nonoffers by morons who had nothing better to do with their time.
