Craigslist

The information you want

George Weber

Our hearts go out to the family, friends, coworkers and many fans of George Weber. We are horrified and deeply saddened that craigslist may have been associated with a violent crime. We will of course provide law enforcement investigators with any assistance they require in pursuing their investigation.

We take many steps to prevent criminal misuse of craigslist and, in particular, to protect the safety of users. These measures include encouraging users, when meeting someone for the first time, to insist on meeting in a public place, to tell a friend or family member where they’ll be, to take along a cell phone, and to consider taking a friend with them.

While violent crime is exceedingly rare on craigslist, with only a handful of cases known out of billions of face-to-face human interactions facilitated through the site, sadly, there is a risk whenever meeting a stranger for the first time.

    What? Is it just me, or can anyone else understand this gibberish.

    I listed a concession stand with you and within two weeks it sold and all the enquiries were from decent people and we even made a couple friends from it all. I think that this was uncalled for to use your name implying that you had something to do with something bad that happened or could have prevented it somehow. It is a shame that people will not learn to take responsibility for things themselves and need to blame someone else, and that news people saw no harm in slamming your name all over the news. Do not let it bother you! Have a great day! David
