"The best way to beat a scam artist is to be educated."
The following questions and answers are to help educate our user about scam artists.
A: When selling items here are some signs of scams to watch out for when contacted by a potential buyer:
  • Over Payment - Does the buyer offer to over pay and request you send a cheque for the over payment back to them? This is one of the most common form of online scams today and all such contacts should be ignored and deleted.
  • Out of Country / Province - Is the buyer in a different country / province? If the buyer is not local ask them for their contact information and verify it. If they don't want to tell you their contact information then consider it a scam. If the buyer is in a different country ask yourself, does it really make sense for them to purchase my item?
  • Asking for Non-Related or Personal Information - Why are they asking for more information then they need? There are many types of Phishing scams out there including emails. Do not give out more information than is needed. If a buyer is looking for additional information then you should consider it a scam.
  • Cashier Cheque, Certified Bank Cheque, Western union - Are they looking to pay by some type of money transfer such as 'Western Union', cashier cheque or certified bank cheque? This is a common scam and is usually associated with the 'Over Payment' scam listed above.
  • Ship Before Payment - The prospective buyer requests that the item be shipped before payment is received. Never ship an item without payment.
A: The responsibility of selling anything online anywhere is always left up to the judgment of the user when dealing with prospective buyers. Our recommendation is that if you find an email suspicious then ignore and delete it. If you do proceed and respond to the email we recommend being cautious and not to give out personal information or send anything without receiving and verifying payment.
A: The following is a list of things to watch out for:
  • Verify Contact Information - When buying an item / product / service ask the seller(s) for their contact information and then verify it. If they are legit they should have no problem providing you with there contact information and verifying should be easy. If they don't want to provide their information or you can not verify the information then you should stop there.
  • Out of Country - If a seller is from out of the country then ask yourself if it is worth the risk and if the item can really be imported.
  • Too Good to be True - If the item and/or its price is too good to be true then it is!
  • Asking for Non-Related or Personal Information - If the seller asks you for personal information they don't need or before you have committed to buying then it is highly likely to be a scam. There are many types of Phishing scams out there including emails. Do not give out more information than is needed. If a seller is looking for additional information then you should consider it a scam.
  • Beware of Pet Ads - One of the most popular scams on the internet and in newspapers are people selling hard to get pets; mainly dogs. Try and get your dog/pet locally.
The above list is a set of guidelines only. The responsibility of buying an item posted online is always left up to the judgment of the user.
