I put up an iPod on cragslist. Bang, 30 minutes later, a guy calls and says he'll be right over with cash.

I thoughtlessly agree to meet him in front of my place.

Now, he sounded like a geek, so I don't expect trouble... but my Beretta M9 loaded with Federal hollowpoints is coming with me.

If I blade at 45, adrenalin dump, etc., I'll post back here.

Update: Geek cancelled by texting me (jerk). iPod is going up on EE.

I just sold by bike on Craigslist. I Had my .45 and a friend with a .45 for backup. Can't be too careful now a days.

FAIL you should meet him somewhere public
Link Posted: 9/15/2010 4:34:33 PM EDT
Just be waiting out there, and once it goes well, tell him that you're relieved he's not an axe murderer, and it's not really your place, then drive away when he does.

Not very smart. Every transaction you do, should be done in a public place away from your home.

Update in OP. False alarm
Link Posted: 9/15/2010 4:38:09 PM EDT
so you invited a dude from craigslist over to your place?

Yeah, on some geek forum right now there's a guy who made a thread about almost buying an ipod off some dude on C'list, but changed his mind when the seller wanted him to come to his place and get it.

He probably was just worrying about saving his kidney and anal virginity.

Anytime I sell something on CL, A gun comes with me, and there is typically a long gun near by.

IF its portable, I'll meet them somewhere. Most of the time, car parts arent that portable, so guns get carried/stashed and my brother knows exactly why I make sure I pay close attention to EVERYTHING thats going on while someone strange is at my property.

I also, keep a somewhat heightened alert the next few days. Luckily nobody SUPER shady has shown up yet.

A camera will also be installed at some point to get pics of car/plates/person just in case.

Just stare him down with your wolf-like dominance when he shows.

Pull a Mrcleanforhire ask him if he's ever seen a grown man naked

He's got your home address, now he just needs to wait until you leave, then he comes in and gets your iPod for free. That car parked 2 blocks down from your place? That's him.

Don't shoot the guy he just wants to buy your IPOD

Yup.

The OP's user name is oddly appropriate.

What's wrong with texting? When I sold an iPod last month, it was all texting after the first email (craigslist).

I used my Google Voice number, the girl did something post-sale to the iPod to brick it, she didn't keep bothering me about it but if she did I could have blocked it. GV is awesome.

Hey, no discount on the CL price for your buddies here?

Of course he texted and canceled. Now he knows where you live and can just simply come over when you are asleep, stab you multiple times in your bed and take the iPod and anything else he wants. Sweet dreams!

the gf gave away a scanner for free on craigslist, and this solid 8.5/10 foreign woman about our age came over to pick it up, and was so happy she wanted to repay us some how. I thought things were going to get real awesome for a bit but she ended up just bringing over cookies

With all the stories of people be robbed and killed from Craigslist.. It really shocks me that anyone would still do a transaction at their house

Not only did he invite some stranger over, this stranger is from Detroit?

Can't see how this could go wrong.
