Cruising Craigslist: Warning bells

()

Each week, Justin Juul combs the SF Craigslist Personals and Missed Connections for true gems that prove there's enough love for everyone (although in this case, maybe not). View his last installment here.

Cruising Craigslist can be a great way to escape boredom and loneliness, but it can also be really dangerous. Sure, you’ll meet plenty of innocent and fun-loving coprophiliacs, morning fuckers, and horny potheads on CL. But if you troll long enough, you might also run into a few psychopaths posing as “Handsome Doctors” or “Hungry MILFs.” If you fall for the bullshit and actually set up a meeting with one of these in-the-closet creeps, beware; they might film you without your consent or steal your wallet. They might slap you too hard or slip you some drugs. They might even try to kill you. Who knows? Luckily, sexual predators are creatures of habit, so you can take precautions. The next time you come across something that sounds too good to be true, just take a second to consult the CL community before you throw out your address. If your potential psychopath has used the site before, someone will have issued a warning. That’s how communities work!

Here are a few posters to avoid at all costs and below are a few that just seem a little…scary.

BEWARE AND KEEP FLAGGING: “HosTing - 37 (scotts valley)”

He's posting again!!
Everyone knows him as the Scotts Valley Spammer. Avoid this strungout, Loser Like the plague he is.
He incessantly posts his ads looking for/offering drugs and/or looking for Asians.
He uses tons of fake pics (some are below). He looks more like the last one.
He's been reported to live in a shack in the woods of Felton/Scotts Valley when he grows pot.
He has been reported to steal form his victims.
He has been reported to be 20+ years older than he portrays, fat, ugly and diseased. (no surprise on that one given his constant drug use).

On behalf of the community, thank you.

BEWARE and FLAG THIS PROSTITUTE: “Hot Meat for your Mouth (san jose)”

That prostitute has been spamming here for weeks, using fake pics.
It's been reported he's infected and doesn't disclose.
It's been reported he will steal from you.

Beware of him like the plague and keep flagging his spam and all other prohibited prostitution and service ads.

It's also been suggested that he's really the BMW Stalker, the same freak who spams with many different ads, mostly as a black top looking for "muscle" guys, "swimmers/lifeguards/ surfers", ethic guys, "big, fat, fleshy" guys, but also as a young white jock, as a "submissive, foot fetish bottom", and MANY MANY OTHERS.

HIS ADS ARE PROHIBITED AND ILLEGAL!

SCARY: “Handsome Man Looking for a Sweet Guy”

He used to post as "Handsome Doctor."
Many, many, MANY people have posted truly uncomfortable responses he typically sends. I assume he will respond harshly to this post....

It's the same pic...may not be the same dude...but be warned...
Here’s his ad in full…

Handsome Man Looking for a Sweet Guy

connection that goes beyond the physical is what i am looking for. my preference is for an educated guy, who has either established himself or is still looking to find his vibe.
i am open to age/race, etc. my only requirement is a very shallow one: i prefer a guy who is a well endowed top.
i am in my late 30's, european with a nice accent, fun, very fit and athletic, enjoy life and intimate companionship.
if you are young and looking for a mentor, i can be one. i, too, like to grow by learning from someone experienced. i like to live.

BEWARE: “Side Yard Glory Hole Concord - m4m (concord / pleasant hill / martinez)”

OK... the guy who has the side yard glory hole DOES tape any and all persons who walk through his gate INCLUDING the entire clothed body AND FACE.
It is a fact. If you are getting head through the hole you are being taped from the outside including your face.
No need to defend the glory hole guy because it's not necessary. This post is not meant as any thing against him. This post is meant as information only for guys who may want to know that they are being taped BEFORE they decide to go through the gate. NOWHERE in his post does it say, or does he disclose that he will video tape you. Taping someone with their knowledge is NOT very nice.

BEWARE: “Thick Uncut Dick- (castro / upper market)”

Beware- you'll be video'd while doing whatever. So unless that's what you want, better ask where the camera is first.
Oh, and he'll grab the back of your head and shove it on his cock, then complain like a little baby if you weren't expecting it and bite him accidentally.
No 'hippieblends' , thanks Stay away from 19th and Noe. You've been warned!

And you should probably avoid these people too…

I mean come one! What guy hasn't thought about it. All men like a helpless man or women to take advantage of sexually. It's a thrill to guys and it's what gets them off.

I THINK WHAT HE DID WAS GREAT,..NOW SOMEONE NEEDS TO CONTINUE HIS WORK ON THE FAGS IN SF WHO POST ADS FOR GAY CASUAL SEX ACTS,...BECAUSE ALL FAGS REALLY DO IS SPREAD AIDS, A GAY DESEASE,..AND REAL HUMAN BEINGS SHOULDNT HAVE TO LIVE AMONGST THEM,..FAGS ARENT EVEN HUMAN BEINGS,..THEY ARE DISGUSTING RODENTS,..(MY APOLOGIES TO RODENTS)...SO HOPEFULLY SOME REAL HUMAN WILL EXTERMINATE THESE DESEASE SPREADERS.

There's a reason you like older guys, and many reasons you'd like me.

I have my own place, no parents or anyone to tell you what you can and can't do.

I'm stable, not broke, loving, caring, respectful, considerate, and honestly an overall nice guy. It's a difficult position I'm in trying to find a younger girl to play with, because it's nearly impossible to convince you that I'm not a psycho or asshole who won't care about your well-being. But, I know that if you were to give me a chance to show you that I'm a normal, attractive, loving guy, you'd really like me! I don't want to disrespect you or do anything that you won't enjoy.
