I live in NY City. I advertised a very early model Burley Samba on craigslist sites through out the northeast. I sold it for my asking price, and the buyer came and picked it up. Interestingly, someone was selling an identical Burley on Ebay at the same time, and his starting bid price was the same as my asking price. He didn't get a single bid.
When you use craigslist, you do get a lot of scam offers (I'm vacationing in Angola, but I'll send my agent with a fake money order to pick up the bike). It's funny how the authors of this scam have no idea how transactions work here. No one I know sells stuff this way. But what's not funny (or maybe it is depending on your perspective), is that enough people actually fall for the scam for them to keep doing it (otherwise, why would scammers keep using it).
