I told him i would call him the next day, to set an appointment after , as I had other people coming to look at it around a.m.
I told him what items I had left, but he seemed uninterested in that, and just kept the conversations scrambled.
Finally he called me "hostile", 3x and hung up, I thought it was so odd, I wrote him back an email explaining that was unclear as to what he really wanted, and that insulting me and calling me hostile was because he wanted information that was not provided to him.
and apologized, saying that he " was trying to reach his accountant, he had told me he was off work that day the eve. Several days later, i got an email from a different person, for an ad that featured one item, but there was on epic that had more than just that item in the picture, and the other items were ones that sold.
This guy was the same, he immediately wanted to know, do you have other furniture for sale, are you a dealer, do you refinish furniture, etc.. i asked him if he needed furniture refinished and he said "No." I asked him I what he was looking for, and he said at first, a king sized bedroom furniture set, then he said a queen sized furniture set, then he said he needed to furnish 3 bedrooms with furniture.. I just told him straight up that the phone call was weird, and that I could not understand his inquiry.
“In fact, I generally can get tons more replies on Craigslist without even posting a photo if I just write a unique and appealing ad as opposed to the typical cookie cutter template of many dating sites, where everyone looks alike.” The most important aspect of staying safe, May Jo says, is to never let your guard down.
