Be careful if you sell stuff 'online'

Scumbags are everywhere, both buyers and sellers.

INDIANAPOLIS --- Selling a used, black-and-white printer through Craigslist seemed simple and straightforward to Doug Costello.

It wasn't.

What the 66-year-old Massachusetts man didn't know then is that he would spend the next 6 ½ years embroiled in a complicated and confusing legal dispute in Indiana over that printer, which, according to its buyer, was broken.

He would find himself liable for about $30,000 in damages. He would pay a lawyer at least $12,000 in his battle to escape the legal mess.

They should ship that bastard back to the Ukraine.

I hate Craig's list and the scammers that lurk there.

Why spare the expense?

Where I live, people have told me that there are a lot of abandoned mine shafts that have solved numerous 'problems' over the years.  :wink:
