How to Spot a Scam

Tuesday, April 15, 2008

Welcome to the blog

Like many people I find Craigslist to be a great website. I really enjoy trading, buying, and selling with no fees. However, the same intagible qualities that draw me to craigslist also invite scam artists and cons who are looking to prey on honest hard working people. Many of these scams can be detected, however many people still lose hundreds of not thousands of dollars to these slimy and unsavory characters.

I created this blog site to expose the crooks and their tactics. I encourage you to share your stories and experiences with other people so that we may better serve the craigslist community, by making it a safer place.
