Sure, there are scams on Craigslist. There are also legit people selling things.

I've purchased Coachella tix off Craigslist before, and I've gotten very good deals. But if the deal sounds too good to be true...

I got a cheap air conditioner window unit on there before. Also a really cheap couch. and found a guy with a truck to pick up and deliver cheap couch for $20. I have found a guy to install extra phone jacks, twice, for cheaper than the phone company charges. I have found a dog sitter on there, apartments for rent and a guy to fix my ceiling fan and found a small fridge for our office. I love craigslist.

My boyfriend and I will be attending the Coachella Music Festival April 16-18. We are having difficulty finding a place to stay, so thought maybe we'd see if there was someone who would be willing to host us. He is 24, 5'6", 6" uncut, swimmers build, bottom/vers. I'm 28, 6'4", 8.5" cut, runner's build, top. We're looking for a place to crash on Friday and Saturday nights after the concert. If there's chemistry, we're definitely willing to play. Send pics and stats if interested.

I bought Coachella 2007 tickets off of craigslist a few weeks before the festival began. I was pretty nervous that the guy was scamming me, but when i got to the festival i saw the same guy trying to sell more tickets by the entrance. It felt good knowing that if the tickets were fake i could go back and kick the guys ass. They were real though.

Craigslist is amazing. I got my apartment, a cool futon, a new fridge, and lots of other cool things. Just not Coachella tickets.

I have bought many things on Craigslist, including Coachella tix. The rule is always meet in person and do the exchange. Never, never, ever under any circumstances send money via western union. That is always a scam!!
Good luck.

If all else fails, perhaps the gay swimmer/runners will hook you up.

If we do the transaction via Paypal and it turns out to be a scam, would Paypal help me get my money back?
