I have sold many things on Craiglist with no problem but have seen this out of town, over asking price, PayPal scam on every item I ever sold of any significant value.

Generic email addresses are also sometimes a good indicator, my ISP does a good job of filtering suspect emails, the response may also include a request for pictures as the first step.

Deal locally, cash only ( state that in your ad), meet in public places and if possibly take someone with you.
