Apparently auto transport scammers are becoming a problem on Craigslist! The problem I can see is that they are advising that we can avoid scams by dealing in person rather than online! I think it would really hamper your choices if you actually took that advise! I have a database of thousands of legit auto shippers that I have developed over the years that could possibly be used along side of government sites to verify the authenticity of a shipper as well as supply valid communication info such as phone numbers and email addresses to make sure you are actually dealing with a shipper rather than someone who has looked up a licensed shipper and uses their name to scam you!
email me at dave@ezdispatch if you would like your shipper verified.
