Sealed $275

As others say, I'm 1000% sure it's a scam.

I'd like to add a fourth rule;
- If you're buying tickets, bring a laptop/smartphone so that you can confirm they are legit!
How do you confirm that they are legit with a laptop/smartphone?

create a stubhub account and upload them. (If you want to keep them just put them on for a crazy high price)

I know someone that bought a iphone 5 on craigslist last week and when they picked it up it worked and seemed legit until they got home and tried activating it and found out it was locked because it was called in stolen!!

BE Careful!!

I am looking to sell my minivan on Craigslist. Anyone here ever sold a vehicle on Craigslist? What is the safest way to go about it? Say if he wants to take for a test drive? Show to a mechanic?

GO WITH HIM!  (After he sees you giving your wife the copy of his Driver's License and his phone number.)

I would just assume I need to allow the guy to take for a test drive.

Do you think it'll be safe to go along? People are nuts these days..

So tell the guy your (whomever) is a bit crazy/paranoid/nostaligic and always does this.  Have your whomever video the dr. licence, and then the guy and you talking to each other and then getting into the car.  You can tell him just in case this he is the guy who buys it you want a nostalgic record.
