Another Craigslist murder in Atlanta tonight. I've done lots of business on Craigslist (buying, selling, etc.) I've never met anyone in a non-public place.
My last Craigslist purchase meant I had to bring a lot of cash, and he was bringing a lot of equipment of value... So we both thought a pretty busy Starbucks was great.
The deal went off smoothly. If your buyer or seller doesn't want to meet this way, you don't want to be transacting with them.
(Will update with link when one is available on AJC or WSB)
