Craigslist is just asking for trouble. A paywall and escrow system keeps the riffraff out.
Also, hi y'all.

Someone getting pissy about a sale gone bad and having your mobile number.
Someone giving you fake bills.
Someone lies about the condition of the device.
Someone turns out to be a sicko that follows you home after a sale...
Someone who puts a knife in your thigh and makes you perform unspeakable acts in the parking lot..

Too much personally identifying information, too high a risk for a mugging or a psycho, too high a risk to get ripped off. Stolen property/significantly differing quality of merchandise is a risk at any non-reputable retailer, not just Craigslist, but still.
PS @Cowboy: I have to officially bow out of that iPad. Sorry man. Folks are being meaniefaces.

Did you read that story last year of the guy that went to a house to buy a flat panel tv and ended up getting a train ran on him by 8 crack heads? After they used his body to make them feel good, they stole his money, phone, car and then beat the hell out of him and tossed him into a water collection ravine.

Oh, so I roll in some crazy circles. At work tonight another team's player (5'11", 18, and all legs) said she had to leave early... the conversation went something like this:
Player: Hey Coach, how do I best get to [this place]?
Orby: Take A to B, it's on the right. Why you going to a hotel?
Player: Oh, the FIRST competition is tonight.
Orby: FIRST? You mean...?
Player: The robotics competition. I built a bot for the deathmatch.
Orby: You're on a team good enough to built a robot to make FIRST deathmatch?
Player: No... I'm not on a team. I built it myself.
My jaw hit the ******* floor... I really am the modern incarnation of Tantalus.
(FYI, FIRST is a top-notch international robotics competition, and the best gearheads are generally in the deathmatch [physical combat] competition).
