I've had an ad on Craigslist for sale atv/utv for the past 2 months. I just logged on to CL to renew the ad and they want $5.00 now. Wth? They want a credit card payment. Visa, Master card, or Discover.
I've been selling on CL for years now and have never seen this before.
Is Craigslist charging for all ad's now?
I'm selling two items right now. The three things that drive me nuts are:
1. Guy calls me 3 times Monday to come out and look at the item. Leave work early, hustle home. Try calling 3 times, leave message and never hear from him.
2. Guy sends me 2 text messages, 847 area code. Call him and he does not speak English at all. Couldn't even tell you what language it was.
3. Get a text from some clown offering 1/2 my price and can pick the item up ASAP. Replied with, "Sure, as soon as you come up with the other 1/2."
I am with you, most times I will hang up on scammers or ignore them, but there are times when I am in a mood that I will mess with them. I was looking at a gun on Armslist once. You know the story, I need the money etc, send me 1/2 the money and I will send the gun. Ok I said what is your address, I feel bad for you, let me send you 75% of the money. Of course I didn't, but that guy sure thought I was going to. He even emailed me once or twice asking where the moeny was. I strung him along for a while, oh sorry I didn't get to the post office yesterday, will go tomorro etc. I had fun.
