Ya.. and then there's the guy selling new computers with windows 7 ultimate for 300 bucks.. Or the guy from south oc selling high end gaming systems with 7 ultimate as well..

I don't think there's any legit people on the IE craigslist.

I've pretty much given up on craigslist... it used to be great, now the scammers, spammers, and scum have taken over.. Even when I'm looking for cheap computers, people want 200 bucks for a 10 year old laptop with a celeron and 512 ram..

While they obviously should not be supplying people with pirated software, you should be supplying your customers with legit software. You should not make them do the leg work.

What happens is people see this types of posts and want real techs to match that pricing. When someone insists on me ordering the software, I do it if they pay upfront.

I do well with CL, and by now I am pretty good at filtering out the Nigerian Prince, scammers and deal hunters.

I buy things there too. I just purchased a 7 inch galaxy tab for $150 ( which is been used as my square up credit card machine) and people love signing their name on the thing . The seller had the orifinal box, and the receipt. But it is harder and harder to deal with real people there
