    I also remember seeing some direly inappropriate advertising on some web pages just a short time after 11/9.
  2. Buddy of mine almost had something similar happen.

    He was looking to buy his first car, saw something decent for ~2000 on CL, went to meet the people where the car was and notices 5-6 really buff intimidating guys and the car was NOT in the condition the photo's had portrayed. They knew that my friend was just a kid with $2000 in his pocket and were probably going to roll him. He's a pretty tough guy though and his dad was with him, my buddy and his dad are russian and pretty built so the guys just kind of aborted the plan.

    So, they're now using cl (etc?) to 'paint targets', are they?

    I fear this new form of *home invasion is going to get a LOT uglier.

    (IMO * should = federal time. No deals.)
  4. 11th of september, hence 11/9. We do dates differently on this side of the pond :p

    This method of robbery is not new at all. During the 60's. 70's and 80's newspaper classifieds and trading times(classified sales paper) were utilized in the same way to assist in zeroing in on particular home invasion targets.
  6. +1. I always meet in a public place.
