Oakland police warn of Craigslist robberies
OAKLAND, CA (KGO) -- A rash of armed robberies targeting Craigslist users has hit Oakland this month.
Oakland police say the scammers place an ad for a car or other relatively expensive item for sale, then rob the person who shows up to look at it.
Police suggest bringing someone with you when going to check out an item, don't bring a lot of cash, meet someplace busy and leave immediately if something does not seem right.
