    For the hell of it, I posted something I'm considering selling on craigslist. Guy quickly e-mails back asking the price. I send him an answer. I then get this back ...

    Me? I'm thinking p-p-p-powerbook.

    I've bought and sold on Craigslist . . . no problems. I only dealt with local people though. I might've been suspicious if some guy in Nigeria wanted to buy my lawnmower.

    CL is a great place to find event tickets locally, instead of going through national brokers.

    The thing with the FedEx account is a documented scam on Craigslist.

    I've always found e-Bay to be very reliable as long as you go through PayPal. I just bought a car on e-Bay last week, no problems.

    I've never had a serious problem buying on eBay...just use PayPal and make sure the seller has a good rating.

    Not that I want to game the system or anything, but there has to be a cheaper way to sell a $200 item through eBay, then Paypal, as I'm currently doing.

    If it sells for $200, then I need to pay eBay $3.30 (insertion — huh, huh, "insertion" — fee) + $6.65 (final value fee) AND appx. $6.60 taken out by Paypal once I get paid. So that's around $16.50 ... 8.5%.

    Quite a racket they got going. Thanks for letting me vent.
