  • I use craigslist all the time.. I always voice verify before I give out my address and that's only when it's something that I can't deliver or meet up with cuz it won't fit in my vehicle (like the kids bunk bed). I would set the tv outside and lock your door if you don't feel comfortable. That is an odd and not very reassuring story the guy gave you tho.

  • You should always meet in a public, open place. Invite a guy over so you are not alone.

  • well he wanted to meet at a store by his job and he drives home 2 hrs every day i wouldnt want to wait an extra hr for the tv. its big and i cant lift it even if i had a car. so yeah i think ill have my neighbor come on over until my husband gets here and i did call him and we talked he seemed okay but you never know :
