A guide to avoiding Craigslist scams in baseball.
By the time the game starts on Friday, there will be a whole new breed of Craigslist scams.
There’s always the new one that claims to have “exactly what you need,” but actually doesn’t.
And there are still others that promise to provide everything from new gear to a new bat, but offer no guarantee.
The first time I saw this, I called the number and was told it was “all scams.”
It was only after I started researching the scams that I realized that they’re all scams.
In baseball, there’s a whole host of things you can expect to see on Craigslist.
In the next few days, we’ll break down how to avoid these scams, as well as other common scams that have popped up in recent years.
A couple months ago, I got a call from a Craigslist seller who said he was a former player.
He offered a new baseball glove and some of the equipment he’d been using, but he didn’t say how much he’d be willing to pay.
He asked me to come up with a $250 deposit and said I’d be the first person in the world to get it.
He said he’d get it delivered in a few days and that he’d call me back when he got it.
It turned out that it was a scam.
I was shocked, but also kind of glad to hear the news that the seller was actually a former major league pitcher.
He was trying to lure me to his baseball-training site and promised to be available for an hour or so when I got it, according to a text message I received.
I called him back and he said the equipment was a fake and that it would take two days to get the bat and glove.
It took him four days to send me a message.
This one I saw a few times in the past, and I was able to figure out it was probably a scam after I was called.
I’ve seen this kind of scam on Craigslist before, but never for $250.
The guy’s name was a little more vague, but I could see he was trying something.
I wanted to talk to him because I wanted the bat, gloves, and a new helmet.
He wasn’t willing to talk about the site or even the site’s name.
It turns out that I’m the first to get a new one.
This was one I heard about online and had no idea how to spot.
This was probably one of the more common Craigslist scams I saw.
This is a guy who was trying his best to sell me a new set of batting gloves.
He promised that he would send them within a week and said that the first one would cost $150.
It was clear that he was selling me a set of baseball gloves that would cost less than the average set.
I figured it would be a good time to check this out and see how he got my money.
The next day, I get a text from him.
He wants to know where I live, so I ask him for the address.
He asks me where the site is and I say I’m a retired pitcher and that I’ve never seen the site before.
He goes on to tell me he’s going to be a guest and then shows me a photo of the site.
He says that he’s got a lot of equipment in his shop and that if I like it, I can make a deposit.
He also promised to call me when he had it, and that there would be an hour to get one.
He then promised that the $150 would be in the mail in two days.
I called the site and they told me it was in Arizona, and it was on a Sunday.
I asked if I could get a ride to the address, and they said it was fine.
After a few minutes, the man came back with a bunch of boxes and told me that it had been delivered the next day.
I thought I was going to have to drive two hours to get there.
I told him I was willing to come pick it up.
He said he had to go to work and was waiting for it, so he left a message on my answering machine that he wanted to buy the bat.
I didn’t see it until after he left.
He did have to show me his phone number, and he had a $10 fee to make the deposit.
I went back to check the site the next morning and there was nothing to see.
I checked the other day and there wasn’t anything there either.
I contacted the seller, who didn’t have a phone number and hung up the phone.
I texted him again and said he said he would call me.
The next day he called and told us that he had the bat in the post, but it was going in the trash and didn’t want to come back.
I didn’t think anything of it, but that was it.
I never went back there.
That was the first time in my life I had
