Co-signing for a stranger on craigslist might not be a good idea

Check out this article. We all see horror co-signer stories on this board about how it strains relationships and families, but why would anyone be tempted to do it for a total stranger? Way too risky and not so surprising this person doesn't have any legitimate takers for his offer yet.

 

Wow.

This post got me looking at the financial services section of craigslist. Lots of scammy looking stuff there. This one really baffled me
