One Way Bike Thieves Use Craigslist

I love tinkering with my bike. I can't keep my hands off the thing. I upgrade and replace components at a rate that keeps my wife in near constant eye roll mode. Therefore, I of course love Craigslist. I have bought and sold parts on the website quite often and have always (knock on wood) had a good experience. However, there are some regular sellers that use the website that seem a bit shady. Why do some of these folks consistently have so many used bike parts? Right, take a guess.

I was reading the One Less Car blog recently when I came across a post about a scam that utilizes Craigslist. Apparently, thieves steal your bike, or a part of your bike, wait for you to go to Craigslist looking for it, then basically try to sell it back to you claiming to be good Samaritans.
