Craigslist...Worried.

Hi, so about 2 days ago I went on Craigslist.com because I was SO bored...&& I realize there was someone selling aquarium equipment cheap and in good condition. I am planning to go and get it from him today but I am nervous. I heard BAD THINGS about Craigslist - Idk if I should just tell him nevermind (that is how scared I am of going to a strangers house)

Have a friend or a parent go with you. :) I've only once sold actual items online that I had to deliver, and I went by a fake name (for security) and took my Mom with me.

They were live frogs, so I didn't want to ship, and I wanted to make sure the guy knew how to take care of them. He sent me updated photos a while ago... they're so big now. o-o He must be taking good care of them.

there's always good deals on CL. :d often, you can pick a public place(like a McDonalds parking lot, or Walmart) to meet up with them, if you're too scared to go to their house, or get them to come to yours. often, they're more than willing to meet up somewhere, if it means getting their "junk" out of their house. x3

My mom is getting a 240 gallon tank this weekend from someone she found on Craigslist. It's sweet! Craigslist that is, though the tank is too.

I got a 5 gallon and a 10 gallon tank that way for next to nothing. Don't be afraid. Just don't go alone or at night. Make sure you go during the day. Most of the listings are just people trying to get rid of their stuff and make a buck or two.

I got both my 5 gallons and I just got a new 10 gallon from cl with no issues. the 2 people I bought from were both in rather large apartment complexes, so lots of people to see me go in there, which always makes me feel a bit happier, lol, I'd be more freaked out if they lived out in the middle of nowhere. but going with someone and maybe making sure someone not going with you knows where you are definitely can't hurt
