I have a shop built engine stand for a flathead V8 that I had back when I had one. I advertised it on Craigslist-Houston and the Early Ford V8 club site. First and only reply I've gotten was from a scammer. He first said he wanted to know when he could see it and then when I inquired who he was and where he was located, he said his trip plans had changed and would I accept certified bank check and bla, bla, bla, You can fill in the rest. I emailed back it was COD or no deal.

Ah yes, the scammers. Gosh, they're everywhere. I found real quick that whenever I advertise anything, I DEMAND they reply with their name, a home address, which I check on Google Earth, landline number, and as everyone has a cell these days, that number also. End of scammer responses.

I recently got an email requesting my name, address and phone number so that a parcel being held in Rome could be released to me. Funny, I have not ordered anything from Europe and have never been to Italy. I guess my multi millon dollar winning lottery ticket and inheritance details will just stay in Rome.

Trying to avoid realtor fees (= more funds for our relocation to Ecuador) we're advertising our house for sale on Craigslist. Upon initial response, I always ask for verifiable phone number, name, address etc. And definitely NO info besides what's in the ad until we talk, not even my number. That always ends correspondence save for the few folks who gave verifiable info and came to look. On a side note, we sold our last house via Craigslist and din't have half the idiots responding and that was just 4.5 years ago.
