What about jobs on Craig's list

Craig's list will tell you that the majority of their postings are legit, but a few are scams.  In recent months I have noticed more legit companies publishing openings on Craig's list versus other local options.  When I see something that looks interesting I send an email of interest highlighting my pertinent experience and skills, while requesting more information about their job.  Only after I have received a reply and can verify company, etc. will I submit a resume.  Another alternative is to prepare a resume leaving off your personal contact information, but I still prefer the email of interest approach.  In today's world, the less information someone has about me the happier I am.
