The house I'm living in now, the previous owners left a dresser, I didn't want it so I put it on craigslist. I NEVER put my address on craigslist but did list my cell phone number. The way craigslist ads work is if you need to delete the ad, you have to go into your email, click the ad and delete ad if item your listing is no longer avail. So I accidently one day deleted a bunch of emails, and this *dresser* ad was one of them, so I can't delete the ad.


Flash forward so over the weekend on Sat. morning, this man (sounds young maybe 20s) called me 3-4 times and left a message about this dresser. I texted a reply back and said it's no longer avail. He calls AGAIN. I tell him, hey I"m sorry forgot to delete ad, it's gone' we hang up. So this morning I wake up to a text message from this person-'Can I PLEASE have the dresser? PLEASE? Dresser FREE.' Dude-seriously? This was sent at 1:10am. WTH? I'm being stalked over a free dresser. Ridiculous.

I've never had a problem before and I've met very nice people-one time this girl came to buy a daybed from me that I was selling and I was going through my divorce-and she said she had a cute brother to fix me up with. lol. I've met people from all over this is the first BAD encounter I have come up with. Just a weirdo.

That's why we only buy off CL & never sell stuff. I block my number when I call with questions. I just don't trust people.

You can go on to craigslist and delete it. I do it all the time. You just log in to your craigslist account if you have one and delete them. That is so messed  up that the person keeps calling.

yeah never put your number there....they can email you and it is private they don't actually see your email. At least that is how I think it works.
