Craigslist Scams Increase?

By an edhat reader

I posted a simple ad on Craigslist looking to sell a bike. Within 2 days, I received 3 responses – all from scammers asking for the same thing – my full name, address and phone number. They would buy my item at full price or slight discount, sight unseen, and send a cashiers check with an extra $50 for my trouble. Two used poor English, one was pretty good.

This is shameful. Can’t Craigslist filter these horrible people out somehow? Does anyone have success selling items on Craigslist without being harassed by scammers? This didn’t happen when I sold items on Craigslist several years ago.
