I've been checking craigslist every few days for baby items. I'm noticing two types of posts. Does anyone know if these things are real or scams?
1) The same person is posting TONS of advertisements for namebrand new products. They offer huge discounts compared to store prices, and want to meet at a warehouse. Everything is in sealed boxes, but they show you an open version. (Just like it would be at a normal store.) I worry that these may be defective returned merchandise, or missing pieces inside the box, or something. Are these really legitimate products?
2) There are ads begging for free baby items. Single moms explaining how they are struggling, and begging for donations. I do lots of second hand shopping and yard saling. I could easily get some baby clothes or a stroller or something to give to a woman in need. Heck, if they're telling the truth, even a $10 giftcard to Walmart is better than nothing. Are these real stories or scams?
