If you are new to Craigslist I recommend you buy a few things first. Like Ebay selling it gives you some ideas on what you want to do as a seller and gives you positive and sometimes negative interactions to grow from. After you have picked up a few free items or bought a few things you will find that sending an email on craigslist is safe. The email system blocks the buyer from seeing your email addy. But any questions or comments come right to your in box! Once communication has been initiated then they have your email so think carefully before you respond to a Craigslist ad. Some are hoaxes so be smart about it!
