    You should post this in the Marketplace...with photos too.

    I think it'll go pretty durned quick. People who don't even know what a Nexus 5 is want one.

    Didn't know that was here on this site. I ended up with 3 and only need 1. Only looking to get back what I paid. I'll have to check it out.

    Craigslist. No fees. Straight cash. And you meet the buyer in person so the odds of getting scammed are considerably lower.

    Had a gun put to my head and made to beg for my life a year ago meeting someone on craigslist, nice kid in a really nice quite little town, the last place you would think it would happen, thankfully he got caught that night due to my description and people from the town recognizing who I was talking about, he got 6 years no early release, I was even on the local news lol


    Swappa is the best and safest bet, and only $10 selling fee, craigslist is a risk that can go wrong, I've bout hundreds of phones off CL and never had an issue, it just takes that one person

    That's crazy!! I do craigslist all the time but I meet at a mall of Barnes and noble. Sorry that happened to you. Agreed on swappa though. That's always my back up place.

    Lol. I've used Craigslist a lot. I've even had folks come to my home to pick-up larger items. Never been stabbed, at least I don't think so. I would know wouldn't I?

    Well I didn't say the odds were 100%.

    I've used CL more than a few times. I wouldn't ever have someone meet at my house tbh but I have picked up a few items from others house. I don't treat everyone like a criminal but it's important to protect yourself, not everyone is an outstanding citizen like everyone on this forum.

    Everyone knows Craigslist is a wonderful place to have anonymous sex. However, buying and selling stuff there is just too dangerous.

    Every time I sell on craigslist I have the buyer meet me at work so there's plenty of people around. Always paranoid someone might try to pull some ****.

    I vote for swappable over Ebay and CL. Buyer pays the $10 fee. You do loose a bit for PayPal fee but your services usually sell quicker. I've sold four phones on there.

    Yeah, recently in L.A. some dudes pretend to sell phones to a buyer and shot them up for their cash. They've been robbing people through Craigslist for a while.

    Naw that's what the goblin duece with 6mm steel bearings and reinforced seal kit is for. Might be airsoft but getting hit pointblank with two barrels of 12 each @ 450fps ain't pretty. Had some crazy crack head roll up to my car at a stop light one day he pulled a blade or screwdriver out his pocket but kept it by his leg. Said he had a gun (lol) and leaned his head in the car. I hit him with both barrels at six inches. I believe I ruptured one of his eyes because he was screaming with some goupy sh|t running between his fingers. Cant afford $799 air taser and I'm the kind of guy that prefers to maim instead of kill (if the situation allows it). So, $75 gun $30 in parts for "seal kit" and $25 to some college kid on CL that said he could modify air guns. Next mod is four flachette darts per barrel. I know it will never do any damage compared to a firearm but the toy was in my lap and my revolver was under the seat. Once again, sorry for the rant.
