Craigslist is a private limited company launched in 1995, with headquarters established in San Francisco. It is a classified advertising website, which allows service seekers to publish the kind of services they are looking to opt for so that the service provider can get in touch with them. Buyers can look from multiple categories the products they want and choose from various options available which are listed by sellers. And sellers who are willing to discard any excess items or unnecessary goods can list their items on the platform being category-specific and get to connect with buyers. All these activities take place within the same city limits. It is just a replicated version of classic newspaper classified advertisements into a website and an app format. Craigslist lists communities, services, discussion forums, housing solutions, buying and selling platforms, jobs, and gigs.


How safe is Craigslist?

According to a survey ran in the United States on the sources of criminal activities across the full stretch, barely any fraudulent activities or criminal activities have been encountered related to Craigslist postings. The number of users that enlist their services on craigslist or look for services and products on craigslist is beyond the count. In a similar fashion, the number of transactions that happen every day in Craigslist is also numerous, in that case controlling fraudulent or criminal activities is quite difficult, most of these users are reliable. Although it is still recommended to take necessary precautions- Make sure both the parties meeting for the first time meet in decently crowded public places. Have a person along every time you try to buy or sell an expensive item. Make sure your phone is available and at reach just in case for emergencies.
