Do you sell or buy on Craigslist? Do you do local pick up only for Ebay or other websites? Do you think it is a safe way to do business? Many times it is not.
Never meet the buyer or seller in a private location. Some have been injured or killed by making this one mistake alone.
Here is my tip:
MEET THE CUSTOMER IN FRONT OF YOUR LOCAL BANK!
Our bank is centrally located in a parking lot of a shopping center. It is on one of the two main roads of our little town. It has cameras on every corner of the building. Be sure and casually mention that fact before the process takes place. Then giggle but the hint will have been dropped.
If something ever goes wrong, God forbid that it does, there is proof on the security camera of your bank. Park in the space that is the most open to view from the public and others.
It may save your life!
