If you list an item offered and more than one person requests it you do get to choose who can have it.
Some people try to give you an entire sob story of why they want it and some are more believeable than others.
I think (and i hope) that most people on there are genuine and take items for their own use but one person did message me wanting several items i had listed and their story seemed a little over exaggerated. They had posted some ads up requesting certain items (like mobile phones) but then on ebay (using the same name they have on freecycle) they appeared to be selling untested mobile phones!!! So i gave the items to someone a little more genuine!!
Chances are though that most things given on freecycle although still good to use arent worth selling and that is why they are on there in the first place.
I havent had much luck yet with acquiring freebies on there. But i have given quite a lot on there so far and i am just glad my stuff is going to some use!!

There is a list of rules for each local freecycle group and one of them states that if you are taking the item with intention to sell it then you need to be honest and tell the giver beforehand.
