When meeting to sell things on Craigslist, remember "safety first"

Selling some of your old stuff on a site like Craigslist is a good way to make some extra money. But use your head and don't give out your address to a total stranger.

Arrange to meet in a public place to sell your items and don't go alone. If you can help it, don't take any checks or money orders. If someone shows up with a check, you can tell them where the closest ATM is.

The bottom line is trust your gut. If something seems a little bit off about a potential buyer, don't follow through with a transaction or the meeting.
