As a I mentioned previously I ran into some trouble reselling two Macbook Air laptops. When FBA became a no go I turned to Craigslist and Letgo. Craigslist I am sure most of you are familiar with and you are also familiar with the pains of craigslist so I will not dwell on that. But I did want to touch on Letgo. You’ve probably seen the commercials.
If only the selling experience on Letgo was that simple. Instead 100% of the people who responded to my add about the Macbook were scammers. The conversation usually went something this:
Do people actually fall for this crap? You know Letgo has trouble with this kind of shit when they explicitly warn you to beware fraudsters; especially if the deal is too good to be true. This one wasn’t even the most blatant. My favorite was the marine who was willing to pay an extra $200 to ship something to his wife. ok….
If you look through Letgo it is 99% junk for sale. The Macbook was a bit out of place. Maybe if the app is used more widely it might prove more useful, but for now? No thanks. It is a waste of time and all you will hear from are fraudsters.
