    Hello,

    I am thinking I will sell my MacBook Pro on craigslist. I am just worried about how to collect payment. What do you guys usually do when you sell? I am afraid of getting counterfit bills or something or someone trying to pull a fast one on me.

    Any suggestions?

    I would meet at a public place and insist on cash. If you are concerned about counterfeit, you can buy a bill marker for cheap. I'd stay away from Paypal - the whole point of selling local is to avoid fees and the hassle of having someone file a Paypal claim.

    better yet, meet at a bank and have the person withdraw the money in front of you.
