How to stay safe when buying and selling on Craigslist…

Don’t give more info than is needed –  If someone doesn’t need your address, don’t give it to them.

Meet in Public Places – Most things being sold should be small enough to sell at a public meet-up location such as the local library, a coffee shop, or even the mall.  Bring someone with you as an extra safety precaution.

Trust your instincts – If you have a bad feeling about a transaction, end it! Sometimes you just have to trust your gut and wait for another buyer or seller.

Communicate via the Masked Email Thread – If you’ve used Craigslist you know that a masked email thread is created when you email someone or someone emails you.   https://www.wellsfargocommunity.com/message/8401#8401

According to Barna Research Group, the estimated number of people in the U.S. who are “unchurched” (in 2014) = around 156 million people. BTW: “Unchurched” means having not attended a Christian church service, other than a special event such as a wedding or a funeral, at any time during the past six months.       Source: ‘10 facts about the unchurched in America’
