It doesn’t matter which section of craigslist you may use, the odds are there’s some kind of criminal lurking on the other side of the ad and as much as I hate to say it, those odds greatly increase if you’re a woman. That may sound insensitive but unfortunately that’s the way it is on craigslist these days.
