Man arrested in Craigslist scheme

By Terri Rupar

A man has been arrested in connection with a scheme in which electronic equipment was advertised at deep discounts on Craigslist, and would-be buyers were robbed when they showed up, Prince George’s County police said.

They said the man was arrested Aug. 13 after officers, pretending to be purchasers, went to a house in the Forestville area in response to a Craigslist advertisement.

I'd like to remind everyone of one thing.
Craigslist is essentially a great site, I have found so many great items that I bought and have had no problems what so ever!
Don't let a few bad seeds ruin Your craigslist experience. Just be smart, Don't fall for any slick tricks, Get a phone number, The buddy system isn't bad, meet at an agreed location other than the persons house, or apartment, Meet at a nearby shopping center, I'm pretty sure the police would assist you in checking on someone before you go to meet them.
I love craigslist! I find great deals on craigslist. You can too!
