When meeting someone for the first time, please remember to:
Insist on a public meeting place like a cafe, bank, or shopping center.
Do not meet in a secluded place, or invite strangers into your home.
Be especially careful buying/selling high value items.
Tell a friend or family member where you’re going.
Take your cell phone along if you have one.
Consider having a friend accompany you.
Trust your instincts.
Taking these simple precautions helps make craigslist safer for everyone.
