Craigslist Tips

Fremont Bail Bonds

Here are a few suggestions from 510 Bail Bond when selling or purchasing items via Craigslist or from a second-hand party:

  • Always arrange to meet in a public place.
  • NEVER travel or agree to meet at the residence of the seller/buyer (remember the other party is a stranger!).  The only exception should be if you are purchasing a large item.  In this case take a friend (or two) with you.
  • A police department's public parking lot is a great place to meet, but make sure it’s during normal business hours.
  • Find and use a meeting place that has visible video surveillance cameras.
  • Inside banks make great meeting places. They have video surveillance 24/7
  • Transfer funds inside the bank and then make a deposit. 
  • Always feel comfortable about the meeting place.  Get to the location early and look around.  Don’t be scared or worried about changing the location.
  • Always get a phone number, name and any additional contact information (vehicle that they are driving, email, etc.) that you can.
  • Never meet at night.
  • Ask to see ID if you are selling a car before the test drive. Take a picture of it and send it to a Friend.
  • Never meet alone.
  • Always proceed with caution and don’t go through with anything you feel might be suspicious.
