The Gloucester Township Police are asking residents to be cautious when using Craigslist to buy or sell items.
Although there haven't been any incidents in Gloucester, there have been reports of sellers being robbed in other communities.
The website offers tips in making transactions with strangers, including insisting on meeting in a public place, not meeting in your home or any secluded location, telling friends and families about where you are meeting, and considering taking someone with you.
