Public description

A subreddit dedicated to Craigslist#### Description

Avoiding Scams

Deal locally, face-to-face —follow this one rule and avoid 99% of scam attempts.

Do not extend payment to anyone you have not met in person.

Beware offers involving shipping - deal with locals you can meet in person.

Never wire funds (e.g. Western Union) - anyone who asks you to is a scammer.

Don't accept cashier/certified checks or money orders - banks cash fakes, then hold you responsible.

Transactions are between users only, no third party provides a "guarantee".

Never give out financial info (bank account, social security, paypal account, etc).

Do not rent or purchase sight-unseen—that amazing "deal" may not exist.

Refuse background/credit checks until you have met landlord/employer in person.
