An advertisement on the Craiglist.org Web site led to an armed robbery in a Walnut Creek Target store parking lot Sunday night, Lt. Mark Covington of the Walnut Creek Police Department reported.
Looks like this is the second time recently something has gone wrong with a Craigslist transaction. This is exactly why I launched Weputation back in March. Overall I think Craigslist is a safe way to conduct business. However, a little background on an individual is always nice before they come over your place or you schedule to meet them.
While I agree that no system is perfect (as some posters on Digg have mentioned), I do believe a reputation score is helpful.
