Police in the Annapolis MD area are cautioning people about some of the dangers of Craigs List. As REALTORS® we all know about the rental scams that can occur from listing a property on Craigs List.
Since Craigs List can be local in certain metropolitan areas, buyers and sellers of merchandise have a tendency to meet in person, rather than conduct the business via mail or delivery service. Recently, there have been several reports of buyers luring Craigs List sellers to remote areas and robbing them.
Craigs List provides a valuable service to a great many people. Despite this, a little prudence in where you might be meeting a potential buyer is warranted.
Like the sergeant used to say in the old "Hill Street Blues" television show, "Be careful out there."
