We tell hundreds of people every day…please stay away from Craigslist.com, it’s not safe and it’s certainly not very productive. If you don’t believe us, click here to read about an actual Craigslist experience.
Here’s a recap of what happened to this lady:
• 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe
• High miles
• Not very much value left in the vehicle
• She lives in Patterson, NJ, an urban area that people generally try to avoid
In the body of the article you will notice that she physically showed the vehicle 8 times over a two week period. On the final time, the vehicle was stolen on the test drive from a 3rd party location that is not mentioned in the article most likely because the publisher didn’t want any friction with that vendor because they are an advertiser. This woman is extremely lucky that she chose to let the man test drive the vehicle alone. What would she do if he drove off and abducted her? Over $1000 vehicle, this woman put herself in harms way. The motivator most likely being the allure that she can get more “selling her car herself” than selling it direct. CarBuyerUSA would have paid $1000 for a vehicle like this one. How much more could she want for it? Is that sum worth the time, aggravation and compromising your personal safety? No way!
