Hello Friendly User,

When listing an item please be aware of anyone who is offering certified bank checks or amazon payment. These are fraud! As much as we try to stop people from reaching out and contacting you with scams sometimes they slip the system. We are reaching out to you as we care a lot about your safety and well being.  There are ways to help prevent or lessen the action of them contacting you!

Step 1: Only take money or offer money if you can visit or physically see the item or person you are meeting with.

Step 2: The only way buyers can see phone numbers or can email you is if they are logged into a account. Please stay away from listing phone numbers or emails in the descriptions of ads.

Please remember We do take measures to reduce incidents of fraud, but the best security is to buy and sell locally, face to face, with someone you trust.

For more information, please review our guidelines for safe selling online:
