USERS AVOID SCAMS AND FRAUD

The Classifieds are a public site, and are viewable by anyone. Protect yourself from scams and fraud and use good judgment when selling or making an offer on an item.

  • DO NOT SEND/ACCEPT PAYMENTS THAT ARE ANYTHING OTHER THAN CASH
    • Signs of Fraud: Requesting payment by cashier check, money order, electronic transfers; threatening to take action if there isn’t immediate payment
  • DO NOT SHIP OR PAY FOR A SHIPPING SERVICE
    • Signs of Fraud: Asking for the item to be shipped; asking to use a shipping service and claiming they will reimburse you
  • SALES SHOULD ALWAYS BE CONDUCTED IN PERSON
    • Signs of Fraud: Inability to meet face-to-face, refusal to talk on the phone, wanting to send a third party
  • UNFAMILIAR WITH WEAVING/SPINNING TERMS
    • Signs of Fraud: Making vague inquiries, e.g. asking about “the item”,
  • RESPONSES APPEAR ROBOTIC OR IMPERSONAL OR ESCALATE EMOTIONALLY
    • Signs of Fraud: Poor grammar/spelling and oddly phrased emails, copy and paste emails, short replies with no new information
