I've sold a lot on Craigslist and never had a problem. I sold (2) vehicles a handicapped van and an older car. I sold an electonic keyboard. I sold (2) older amps with some issues on Facebook. I always get a cashier's check or cash. Never had a problem with the people, they were very nice and upstanding. Never ran into any criminals or low lifes, but I'm sure they can be anywhere.
