LEARN TO RECOGNIZE GOOD DEALS FROM BAD: Unfortunately, there are people out there who will use classifieds to get your money. Here are some ways to avoid these scams. Use skepticism and good judgment.
Be wary if the price is notably below market value.
Be prudent with International transactions. A good number of buyer/seller fraud attempts originate from overseas.
Confirm contact information. Legitimate buyers/sellers will provide valid information, including phone.
In almost every case scammers will convey a sense of urgency.
