Remember:

  • DO NOT do business with anyone who offers to send you payment for a higher amount than your selling price with the understanding that you'll send back the balance.

  • Be suspicious of anyone claiming to be acting on behalf of a "client" or another "customer".

  • Be suspicious of anyone claiming to be from Nigeria or West Africa

  • If you agree to accept a check payment, then do not send anything, gear or "change" before the check cleared. And be careful, if you manage to clear a fraudulent check then you may be liable for the damages if the bank finds out later. Make sure your bank authenticates the check.

  • If it sounds to good to be true, then it probably is.

With that said, I feel I must remind people - once we disable a user, he will still be able to contact you via e-mail if you had already spoken to him. Quite often I get asked why the person is still in contact with them.

Once you have seen a user listed in the security and scam alert forum, you should cut all contact with the scammer immediately and block their e-mail address.

Hi,

Apologies, he managed to sneak through. I've double checked and disabled the username on all platforms. He should have no means to contact others via the classifieds again.
