Safety Center: Here are some tips to help you avoid scams and fraud

  • Only deal with people in your area. The best way to avoid scammers is to deal locally, with people you can meet in person. Scammers will often contact you from another country or somewhere far away, asking you to ship the item you're selling.
  • is not involved in any transaction between buyers and sellers, and does not handle payments, guarantee transactions, provide escrow services, or offer "buyer protection" or "seller certification". 
    Please read our Terms of Use.
  • Avoid deals that are too good to be true. Scammers try often to post fake ads, selling items that are significantly underpriced. If you see any of these fake ads, please report them by clicking "report abuse" in the ad.
  • Try to convince you not to use payment services that offers protection (accepted services are those like and PayPal).
  • Don't wire funds (Western Union, Money Gram, etc.). If you're asked to wire funds, you're talking to a scammer.
  • Will repeatedly not answer phone calls or email.
  • Beware of identity theft. Don't share your private info. Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in the United States. Don't give out bank account numbers, passwords, mother's maiden name, date of birth, place of birth, credit card numbers, social security numbers, or any other personal information.
  • Beware of fake cashier's checks and money orders. Scammers will often send you a fake cashier's check valued above your asking price. The scammer will then ask you to wire the over-payment back to them. Your bank may even cash this check, but when it's discovered that the check is fraudulent, you will be held responsible by your bank.
