Phishing for your email,, no contact info is always the key. Flag it.

Not always true of course. I have posted plenty of items where I didn't list my contact info because I didn't want to get spammed by the bots trolling for contact info in the post!

Also, it's a good idea to use disposable emails for this purpose. My favourite is http://mailinator.com/, which plus in well with google reader.

That's funny, because I NEVER leave an email, I leave a phone number ONLY. That way you don't get spam and Nigerian princes emailing you. Typically if you spell out a few of the digits in your phone number, there won't be any trackers getting your number. I ONLY deal on the phone, as there are far fewer tire kickers willing to make a phone call than there are sending an email that says, "I'm interested in your whatchamafuckit, are you firm on the price? Can I come look?"

I've been selling and buying on Craigslist for a decade, before that, I used eBay (starting in 1997) and local usenet groups (starting in 1995.) I've used these tools just about weekly continuously for all these years.

Every time I've posted a phone number I've gotten bullshit calls, including from crazy-people-time-wasters.

Phone number or no phone number is not a sign of a scam. Signs of scams are out of state plates with non native vegetation in the background, and insanely good prices.

I have also *called* on things that had phone numbers listed that turned out to be scams.

I've never been scammed, and never had any negative experiences (other than crazy people calling me when I've listed a phone number) in all these years of buying and selling things on the interwebs.

Isn't that what a hotmail account is for? Your garbage dump email???

Never left a phone number on CL and wont.

Now...how do I fix my problem of someone from Houston calling me everyday...grrr. Verizon allows 5 blocks but they roll it to another number and call then. Wonder If I can block all calls from Houston 832-615-xxxx???

I keep it to Emails for the first couple of interactions,then if it looks ok I switch over to phone when selling,I have only done local but/sell or at least no more than a 200 mile radius.Motorcycles,cars,sailboats,windsurfing equipment,furniture,ham radio equipment the list is pretty long of what I have bought and sold on Craigslist.
