We have had several users tell us recently of scam artists pretending to purchase an item.
BE EXTREMELY WARY of offers by strangers that want to send you a cashier’s check with a higher value than the item they are purchasing, and then have you wire the balance to them. Western Union is another red flag.
If you think you might have a suspicious person, please let us know, We want you to have a good experience.
Just fill in the form below with the name and email or any contact info you have on a suspicious user. We will check them out and BAN them if appropriate.
Here is information from Scam Victims United
1/26/16; latest Scam report
On January 13, I received the message below through Used Boat Equipment from firstname.lastname@example.org
regarding an item we listed
After several email exchanges, I received an $800 check in the mail for an item with an agreed-upon price of $80. The check was written on the account of a daycare center in Texas. I called the center and learned that someone had stolen some of their checks. I then received the following message on January 20. I took the check and messages to the local FBI office. I don’t think anything further will happen but just wanted you to know.
