Had a guy near DC that posted a stock E-Mag, with charger and every thing else for $250. Emailed him 2 times over 2 days. Wouldn't email back. Figured that he sold it. Reposted it again three days later. Emailed again. Posted again two days later. Said screw it.

I'm on the receiving end of flakes.

I've been trying to sell a beginners package for a pretty cheap price. Had a few emails, got all the way up to the Where To Meet part, and no show. Most recent was a huge lowball and when I came back with a counter offer, no contact.

Craigslist is just full of Fakes and Flakes...

None of you hate Craigslist, you hate dealing with people.
I on the other hand, love it.

Yeah, the lowballers are simply annoying. I was able to sell a vehicle through CL, but it took wading through multiple emails full of stupidity to finally find a legitimate buyer. Emails ranging from offers for 1/2 of my asking price (but they had cash!), to 16 year olds asking if I am willing to take payments, and some woman an hour away asking how far I was willing to drive to let her look at it, then getting pissed off and calling me an a-hole because I said I already had enough local interest.

I've yet to have a successful paintball transaction, as I have not been able to get anyone interested in shipping anything unless I was willing to send them a money order in advance. Ummm no.

And I don't hate dealing with people, I hate dealing with people who think they are wheeling/dealing rockstar negotiators that are going to get one over on me. I buy and sell for a living. I'm not new.

I've given up selling on CL and Kijiji due to the number of flakes,time wasters and low ballers. It's not worth the time to have an item sit and hope that someone will have a clue that what you're asking is more than fair. I've found lately a much better way of selling (at least paintball stuff) is to post it up in the facebook group for our local region Paintball BST. Far less flaking since we all know each other and play together. Usually better prices and far better taken care of gear as a buyer too.
