I have been trying to list all sorts of things on Facebook with the only people that seem to answer within 10 minutes want me to text them or phone them. All are scammers I believe, because what ever ad I put on they immediately respond with the same question. About 20 of them in 10 minutes. Anyone know how to get around these people ?

Don't list on Market Place....join groups and list your items there

Have tried that Dennis and it still comes back with all these scammers. Ebay is high, listing stuff in the news paper use to be a no brainier. Even now Craig's list is tough and people do not go there.

when you post in the groups you have to change the setting or it will post on Marketplace also.....I list daily and have no problems
