When you want to buy or sell something used online, your first thought might be to use Craigslist. After all, it's the site that brought the newspaper classifieds into the digital world and today has nearly 40 million new listings every month.

Of course, using Craigslist does carry with it valid concerns. You might deal with a buyer or seller who tries to cheat you with bad payment or an item that's different than what was listed. There are a lot of stories of people meeting a buyer or seller to finish transactions and getting robbed or worse. That's why it's essential to meet in a public place and let someone know where you're going - or bring them along.

Fortunately, Craigslist isn't the only game in town.
