    It's Craigslist, you can do whatever you want.

    I'd suggest asking a couple questions to determine which person you're most comfortable meeting with, and then just meeting that one.

    For me I would sell it on a first come first serve basis. But that would be hard to tell if all 4 e-mailed you at the same exact time.

    You should meet them all at the same place at once to maximize your chances of being beat up and having your phone stolen.

    If you end up meeting the 4 at the same time, make sure you meet them between a police station and a hospital because you'll end up needing both.

    It's Craig's list. There are no rules, or rather you make the rules. Why would you tell all four to meet you when you only have one phone. That's just plane stupid.

    1) Tell all 4 to show up.

    2) Provide blunt weapons and tell them the winner can buy the phone.

    3) Profit? #

    -----------------------------------------------------
    Actually, don't be a @!(&

    Just pick one and meet.

    1) Starbucks or bank lobby (people, cameras, limited exit to discourage runners, and depending on location.. Guns)

    2) cash only

    3) friend by the exit door (may not be needed at bank)

    Do not ship, take checks, meet in the park, go to his car to get the money, etc.

    Why, you ask? I think the answer is obvious:

    I guess I'm two minutes late. But seriously, follow this guy's (real) advice.

    I wouldn't use a mall or any open place due to the risk of runners. Also, most people inside a mall are fairly oblivious to anything happening outside of arms distance.

    Bank lobby's also have another advantage for buyers and sellers alike: no cash carrying target.

    Buyer can go to meet you without walking around with $$$$. Just his/her debit card.

    Seller can go to teller after sale and leave the same way.

    Pick one and meet at thier phone carrier
    Walk in with them and stay till activated, so you and they know nothing is wrong Also they pay you just before you both walk in

    Exactly! Because we all know that criminals don't use guns in places where they aren't allowed! [​IMG]

    Sure they do but you would have to be truly nuts, even for a criminal to pull out a gun in a bank lobby. I would say that's a pretty safe place to meet.

    Lol. Yes, criminals are criminals. Thats why I have a Texas license for a car, and a Texas license for my Kahr.:)

    Nothing can guarantee safety, certainly not to the 100% threshold we would like it to be. All we can do is lower the chances.

    Malls are open, have lots of places for people to run (after giving you an unexpected right hook, for example) and while they have cameras, these are generally mounted very high up, have piss-poor coverage, and get "watched" and "maintained" by minimum wage teens if at all.

    Banks generally have better cameras, with better coverage, and staff will tend to pay attention to people who walk into the lobby, sit down and start looking around. They also have more ways to set off silent alarms than you have fingers and toes, so there's that.

    What this means is that a would-be robber, armed or of the smack and grab type, would be more likely to pass on that meeting than for a meeting with an easy mark who will meet him in a store parking lot. Again, not a guarantee, just a likelihood.

    A mall would be better than said parking lot, but not by much.

    A Bank to make sure their money is real and is safe with all the cameras. A target cafe they usually have a security guard near entrance and a camera as you walk in or out. If you look up you see yourself on the screen. Under a camera sign in the Target parking lot. Police dept lobby. Cops allow it in my city.

    ----------

    Would never do it at a Walmart too many thugs and robberies there. Good chance of a take and run. Usually busy so robber would blend in with the crowd.

    ----------

    Maybe inside a post office? Lots of cameras inside there.

    Let say that 100 people ask for your phone, or what about 1000? You can charge $1 dollar to see your iphone. Could you imagine? :rolleyes:

    It is the same with a house, a car, or anything. Few People will ask you and not all are going to be interested.

    Don't trust too much about people and always choose a public place not your home to show your iphone

    I just sold my iPhone 5 32 gig for 350$. I was impressed that the phone fetched such a price.
