We usually use buying/selling platforms to post all of craigslist without any safety measures. In March, a person placed an ad regarding the sale of new Ipad. Its offered price for sale was hundreds of dollars. In return, a person contacted the concerned party and asked to buy it. Most of the people now know that the buyer would definitely have the specific amount to buy anything. Same happened over here. He came to get his newly bought Ipad but unfortunately he got robbed by the seller. According to police, the suspect was armed and showed his gun, took the money and ran away.
Another case happened in Orange Place, where a man was robbed by the seller of Honda Civic. He came to the concerned person with the money to buy the car. In all this the suspect robbed the money and put his foot on car’s accelerator and just disappeared.
Such incidents really happen when we do not care about where we are going to buy and what the source of communication is. For more to know, you can easily search all of craigslist news by state and see what is happening around you.
Be careful before buying or selling via craigslist, as internet is not safe at all.
