I have been trying to use Craigslist for one of my new business ventures. It's been a few months. I have ads placed in five different states, in a variety of cities.
For every one legitimate response I get to one of my ads, I get about 500 or more responses from some jackass trying to scam me.
Every time I listen to the news, I hear of someone else that has been ripped off, robbed, assaulted or murdered by a person they met on Craigslist.
Almost every ad I have every responded to on Craigslist has been placed by someone trying to scam me.
It seems to me that it has become a breading ground for criminals, thugs, and con artists.
I run ads on other venues and a variety of different sites. I never get the responses from them, that I get from Craigslist. In fact I seldom get any response from any of the other sites.
Not legit or scammers.
So what is it about Craigslist that attracts the dead beats and derelicts?

After ten years of loyal customer support of T-Mobile, they have told me point blank that they
would rather lose my business than upgrade two six year old phones for free. All I wanted was
two very basic, call, text and camera phones. I was willing to sign a two year extension and
upgrade our plans. Didn't matter. I have always told everyone I knew how wonderful T-Mobile
was. Well from now on I will be telling everyone I know how terrible and greedy they have
become. They were more than happy to lose a customer of ten years over a cheap $20 phone.
So who's happy with their phone provider, as long as it's anyone except T-Mobile?
