Avoiding Scams

Postby admin » Fri Aug 05, 2016 3:44 am

If possible, deal locally, face-to-face — follow this one rule and avoid 99% of scam attempts.

    Do not extend payment to anyone you have not met in person or trust.
    Beware offers involving shipping - deal with locals you can meet in person.
    Never wire funds (e.g. Western Union) - anyone who asks you to is a scammer.
    Don't accept cashier/certified checks or money orders - banks cash fakes, then hold you responsible.
    Transactions are between users only, no third party provides a "guarantee".
    Never give out financial info (bank account, social security, paypal account, etc).
    Do not rent or purchase sight-unseen—that amazing "deal" may not exist.
    Refuse background/credit checks until you have met landlord/employer in person.
