It’s nice when you find something you need or want for less than commercial price, right?  But it’s dangerous to walk blindly into a situation when purchasing internet items from strangers. Find out what happens during this Playstation exchange and receive tips for your own safety during similar transactions.

Two men wanted to purchase a Playstation (most likely used) from a young lady at a private residence.  It wasn’t revealed if this was a transaction set up via Craigslist or a similar online site.
