Craigslist, Home Of Crooks And Charlatans...

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?

T-Mobile Broke Up With Me Over A Cheap Phone...

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?
