I've bought a lot of things off CL and never had a problem. You just have to be on the look out for a scam and not fall prey. 99.9 % of the sellers on CL IMO are legit. The only problem I have had as a seller is someone tried to pass me some counterfeit $20 bills. I have a marker that can identify counterfeit bills. When I told the guy they were counterfeit he acted surprised. Not sure if he knew but needless to say the deal was off.
