Craigslist Buyers........
« on: January 24, 2016, 08:12:15 PM »
I've been listing stuff a lot lately.  Some for sale, some on the free stuff section.  I fill out as much as I can on the site. Pics, Maps, City, Zip, Cell(text/call), detailed description.

First Text - "Is (thing for sale/free) still available?"

Second Text - "Where are you?"

Which is usually followed by, "I dunno where that is."  Or, "Wow, you're far!"

Isn't the location of the item usually right next to the listing? As well as the map on the listing page? 

I've had 5 texts today alone for one item and all the same.  Not counting all the ones before this. 

I don't even have a smartphone, but I think if I did I could find out where something is quite easily. Geeze

Selling things through there can be a huge pain in the ass. I can see asking if something is still for sale, I have contacted a lot of people only for them to tell me they sold it days or weeks ago. Probably one of the most frustrating things.

I come to terms with dealing with these people though in order to post things for sale for free to a large market. Doesn't make dealing with the paint chip eaters any less infuriating.
