I've always sold items through CL and Ebay. Luckily I've never had any bad incidents. Mostly good people just looking for a deal. Some items sold at the end of my driveway and others at a public location.
I currently have an iMac for sale, so the problem is electricity. I'm sure a buyer will want to power it up and test it out. I figured meet at the police station and plug it in. So I gave them a call and they said, no to that, but what they will do is a "Keep the Peace" call. This will allow us to meet at any location within our city's limits and have a police officer present during the transaction.
Has anyone used this type of service?
