Anyone with an e-mail address can sign up on craigslist. It is totally at your own risk. Craigslist is not responsible in any way, so if you get ripped..it's all on you. Perhaps it might be worth asking if you threw in 10$ extra dollars he might meet you close to home? No family or friends that might take you? Lastly, ask for a phone number..often if you are intuitive, you can get a feel for someone's honesty just by talking to them. If you have a gut feeling about it, save your money.
