Way to stick to the original gameplan in the face of unexpected new developments dude.

<i>Swopes sent the woman text messages about buying a dress for his sister but didn't seem interested in purchasing it. When the woman arrived with officers, </i>

Why did she arrive with officers?  If he didn't seem interested in purchasing it, why did this even happen at all?

So the sequence of events is

her: "yea u interested?"
him: "no. wanna meet up?"
her: "yes"
her: (i better get a police guard to come with me)
police: "yeah we will come with you for some reason"

Hey, it could change!  Did you ever think about that?  Scientists are doing research every day on Roller Derby and I for one am holding my breath for new insight.  So, I read that sponsor link every day hoping to read about the latest breakthrough.

The Southern Dandy: Did he try to buy a Tossed Salad?


There's a new restaurant opening, called "Toss'd Salad". I can't help but think they might have been able to come up with a better name. Also, I have no intention of eating there.

I put a TV on Craigslist years ago.  Within an hour, a chick came to my home, alone except for her 2 year-old daughter and $400 cash.  I never understood why  she did that.

It's weird, when I'm at work using Firefox they don't appear.  But at home I'm using Chrome with adblow and still see them.  How do you change the "block file" in adblock for chrome?

I mean, other than you having family on the force?  Can I call the cops for all my sketchy Craigslist dealings, if I had any sketchy Craigslist dealings?

//haven't used CL in ages, but when the SO bought his bike there he got verbally biatch-slapped from me for meeting the couple in a secluded apartment complex with $600 in hand
///at least they were legit bike fanatics moving out of country; he ran into them getting their 'good' bikes tuned up at the shop before shipping them to Europe a few hours later

A couple years ago I responded to an ad for a tablet. Woman told me to come over and check it out. I showed up to her VERY nice house, but she wasn't there. I called, left a vm, then took off.

30 minutes later she calls and wants me to come back. I explain that it's too far of a trip to make twice so I would pass. Over the next couple of hours she continues to call with increasingly more urgent requests for me to come back. She keeps talking about her divorce and need of
money. Her last call ends with, "Just come back...I'll suck you off too!"

To this day I am so glad she wasn't home when I showed up. That might have ended up pretty ugly...or a letter to Penthouse forum I guess.

I'm currently using the roommate's computer while she's out of town.  SO using mine while his is in the shop.  No ABP or NS.

Holy crap, I'm surprised people DON'T biatch about the sponsored links more than they do in threads.  Or do the mods just delete them?

Jack_Knopf: I showed up to her VERY nice house, but she wasn't there


I'm gonna take a stab in the dark here and say she didn't really live there.  And was maybe trying to time 'arriving' with you so it didn't look suspicious that she didn't answer the door.

Of course, I am pretty damn cynical and jaded.

That hit me for the first time as I was writing this out. I always just figured it was going to be some sort of entrapment scam..."Give me 5k or I'll accuse rape."

Because despite the 1 or 2 incidents we hear about weekly, there are hundreds of thousands of transactions daily that occur between normal human beings not bent on destroying ourselves through Craigslist?

My wife and mother are paranoid about it...I use it consistently.  If the hair on the back of your head is standing up, tell them to meet at a police station or high vis neutral place.  If you must stay at your house, make sure you state that you are armed (even if you aren't).  Trusting people will still come for your item if they really want it.

Not rocket science.
