Dangers of Craigslisting, uncovered!

Editor's Pick

We all know the potential risks of striking deals on Craigslist. The founders of Replyboard, an online service to help you screen people behind potential transactions, have gone undercover in a series of hilarious videos to show you how sketchy dealmaking on the site can get. They replied to various ads posted on Craigslist Seattle and brought a hidden camera along to document the meeting, during which they made themselves at home, and then some. The videos are laugh-out-loud hilarious, and, apparently not a hoax. According to the Replyboard Presents site, each person featured was offered and given $50 to sign a waiver.

Says Replyboard co-founder Steinar Skipsnes, Craigslist "lacks transparency. You have no idea who you're dealing with. That needs to change and that's why we created Replyboard.com."
