Safety, Security, and Avoiding Scams

Follow these common-sense rules:
1. DEAL LOCALLY WITH FOLKS YOU CAN MEET IN PERSON - you can avoid 99% of the scam attempts this way.
2. NEVER WIRE FUNDS VIA WESTERN UNION, MONEYGRAM or any other wire service - anyone who asks you to do so is most likely a scammer.
3. FAKE CASHIER'S CHECKS & MONEY ORDERS ARE COMMON, and BANKS WILL CASH THEM AND THEN HOLD YOU RESPONSIBLE when the fake is discovered weeks later, SO BE VERY CAUTIOUS AND VERIFY LEGITIMACY/AUTHENTICITY AS NEEDED.
4. NEVER GIVE OUT FINANCIAL INFORMATION (bank account number, social security number, eBay/PayPal info, etc.) to ANYONE.
5. AVOID DEALS INVOLVING SHIPPING OR ESCROW SERVICES and know that ONLY A SCAMMER WILL "GUARANTEE" YOUR TRANSACTION.

FYI: Most scams involve one or more of the following:

  • Inquiry from far away, usually in another country;
  • Western Union, Money Gram, cashier's check, money order, shipping, escrow service, or a "guarantee;"
  • INABILITY or refusal to meet face-to-face before/as part of, completing transaction.


******************************************************************
Please notify one of the following about suspected fraud or scam attempts.

If you suspect that a posted item may be part of a scam, or in any way illegal or unethical, please email the details to webmaster@pyramiddle.com. Be sure to include the URL (or post ID number) in your message.


******************************************************************

The majority of Classified Ads users should be trustworthy and well-intentioned. The incidence of crime should be extremely low. However, one should always be mindful of personal security and safety.

It's very important to take the same common sense precautions online as you would offline.

When meeting someone for the first time, please remember to:

  • Insist on a public meeting place like a cafe, preferably one that you NEVER otherwise go to.
  • Do NOT meet in a secluded place, or invite strangers into your home.
  • Be especially careful when buying/selling high value items.
  • Tell a friend or family member where you're going.
  • Take your cell phone along if you have one.
  • Consider having a friend accompany you.
  • TRUST your instincts.
