- Non Local Messages: Be extra cautious if you get messages from someone out of the area, especially overseas.
- Members Behaving Badly: Block and report any inappropriate behavior.
- Don’t Go it Alone: Especially with high-value items. Bring a friend.
- Keep it simple. Accept cash only. Don’t accept or attempt to pay with checks, wire transfers, cashier’s checks, money orders, or debit/gift cards.
- Trust Your Instincts: If it doesn’t feel right, just let that deal pass you by. Key flags include: insisting that you come alone, last minute venue change, or refusal to meet in public.
SAFE BUYING TIPS
Here are a few additional things to keep in mind.
- Have Questions? Ask all questions ahead of time. Age, condition, color, additional pictures of an item, all can avoid a failed buy.
- Too Good to Be True Pricing: Be cautious of deep discounts on big-ticket items even if they have a good story.
- Inspect Carefully! Check out the item carefully before paying the seller. You are very unlikely to get a refund.
SAFE SELLING TIPS
Let’s make you some money, safely!
- Shipping before payment. Just say no.
- Check Scams: Scammers will frequently offer more than the listed price, and may ask that you return the difference between their check and the selling price. These checks are usually fake and you lose out on the entire amount as well as your item.
- Forgery: Don’t simply stick the money in your pocket. Look at it first. Make sure it looks like valid U.S. Currency.
