I know this has been said before, but please be really careful with Craigslist.
A guy I used to go to high school with just put his car up for sale and got an offer. He drove up to STL to make the deal and was missing since then. Last night they found his body 400 yards away from the car he was trying to sell. He was only 19 and he was killed.
Please please PLEASE, if you have to sell something on craigslist because it's easier, either:
1) Bring a cop with you to oversee the transaction. Call the non emergency police number of your town and ask for an officer to come with you for a sale.
2) Do the transaction inside a police station or in the parking lot (with a cop to oversee the transaction of course.)
These stories are way too horrifying and it's really harrowing to have it happen to someone you know.
Please spread this around. I don't want another family to go through this again.
