I would think the #1 rule of robbing someone is the fact that you know they'll have money on them for you to take. If you're giving away something they could just as easily have nothing on them and just show up to get the console thus making the whole thing pointless.

I'm not neccesarily arguing that there is a PS3 involved who knows it probably is b.s. but if the purpose was to rob somebody you would probably want to be selling something to where they'd have to bring money.

Money isn't the only thing that can be robbed lol. If by chance they had nothing on them they could easily be jumped for their car

Hah, I just had some jackhole offer me an old Xbox with a broken drive for my Virtua Cop 2 coin-op. I'm sure he'd like me to deliver the machine too... ugh.

Exactly. Most people carry at least some cash, a cell phone, etc.


Bored? Too much money than you know what to do with? Why not check out my Amazon Storefront? If you see anything you want, send me a PM! Make an offer, either monetary or trade! Over 2000 items, and more added daily!

I have been shopping for a cheap used car. I test drove one Saturday morning that had been listed for 3000. The guy told me they had an offer for 3500, so that was the lowest they would go. When I email them to tell them we had found a different car, he responded to let him know if I knew anyone else who was looking, and he'd come down on the price. ?

I read that a pissed off Wife did an estate sale on all of her cheating husband's possessions while he was out on a "business" trip with his mistress. She also sold the house and moved if I recall. :lol:


I picked up a couple of giant CD sleeves FULL of high quality/RPG/rare PS1 and PS2 games, about 100 games total, for $100 a few years back off of craigslist this way. All disc only, but it had every single PS1 and PS2 FF game, Valkyrie Profile, Brigandine, Legend of Mana, Arc the Lad collection, Lunar Silver and Blue, Star Ocean, ToD 1 and 2, all the RE games, MvC 1 and 2, just on and on.

Some scorned woman had them and they belonged to her ex husband or ex boyfriend, can't remember all of the details but basically she punted him from the house and was selling all of his shit. I think I posted about it in the craigslist finds thread way back when.

SPLASH!

There are 11 games, and most of them are crap, but I rather enjoyed those installments of the Driver series. A poor deal, no doubt, but let's not throw the baby out with the bathwater. :D

Misleading title is misleading. I thought it was a SNES with a complete copy of Chrono Trigger. I guess he just meant the SNES has all the cords.

It's not really a terrible deal or stupid just misleading.

That SNES ad was really misleading haha.

Not a bad price for that bundle imo.


I'm always for the lookout for dumb stuff on craigslist in my area but it's always ads for a new store that's opened around me.

Really? People won't pay more than $10 for an SNES here, though the real limit is closer to $40. No way Chrono Trigger is worth at least $100.

About 10-20 games just trying to get some money for p11 ear force these are ps3 only the games will not include Xbox thank you


So, anywhere between 10 and 20 games? I'm guessing the ability to count gets fuzzy after 10...

So, they're PS3 games, AND IN ADDITION you cannot have his Xbox. Glad we're clear on that now.

It's not really sad, he's just asking for a free basketball. There's a place called Freecycle, where it's available across the country, where people give away stuff instead of using Craigslist. I've seen some nice things given away, like Genesis, furniture, and appliances.

dood, freecycle is fucked. everytime I see something listed, it disappears 3 minutes later or the person never replies. Someone posted a box of D&D books about 3 months back and never posted they were picked up (or replied).

its a good idea, but man you really got to be one your game to get some things off there.
