Placing a Craigs List Ad? Beware of These Responses

I’ve successfully sold several things on Craig’s List, but every single time, I’ve also received responses from scammers.  How do I know?  Because the initial response is this or something similar:

  • “is the item still available?” or worse, “Is the items still available?”
  • “I’m interested.”

These are canned inquiries. “Item”?  Who talks like that? I don’t. Do you?  A more legit inquiry to an ad will likely include the name of what’s being sold:

  • “I’m interested in the bedroom set, is it still available?”
  • “Is the futon still for sale?”
  • “Do you still have the microwave available? I’ll give you $50.”

A scammer is not paying attention to what is being sold.  He or she is responding to many ads, constantly, in order to increase their chances of success. They won’t even bother typing a specific item name, it would take too long. Much quicker just to copy and paste, paste, paste, paste.

Information is power!

About Robin Barr

I was born in New Jersey, and when I was 3, my parents moved to Southern CA where I've lived since in Covina, San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, Laguna Niguel and now Mission Viejo. I love dogs and cats and compassionate about all living creatures. What do I do for a living? I invent problem solvers. Have you seen Cold Sores Begone™ or Canker Sores Begone™ in health food stores or online? Mine. I like using stuff that won’t kill me later so both remedies are non-toxic, safe enough for small children, and topical (I don't swallow pills easily). If you want to prevent a cold sore from materializing when you feel the early tingle symptom, apply a few drops of Cold Sores Begone™. Done. If you're plagued with those painful ulcerations inside the mouth (canker sores), apply a few drops of Canker Sores Begone™a few times a day, and it should disappear in 2-3 days. I was elated when PREVENTION and NATURAL HEALTH magazines told the world my two products work as promised. Afterall, I'm just an accidental entrepreneur. Read the circumstances of how I came to be a small business owner here, scrolling down to the paragraph header that starts with "If you're curious...". Everything above it is a repeat of this bio.
