Default Want to buy ads **Please Read**

There has been a few members that were taken advantage/scammed from posting a "want to buy" ad. The deals were finalized thru pm's and texting.

1.When posting an ad ask for replies on the ad itself not via pm's or text.
2.Never give out your cell number to text pictures back and forth pictures.There are so many phone apps that you can get a ghost number.
3.If someone ask for payment via friends and family/gift. Report them immediately.

I agree with what your saying. The only problem is Not everyone is a scam artist. There are people who never posted on this site before like myself. I always deal with messenger on Facebook. I also give my cell number to communicate with the person purchasing my item. I give the cell number Incase the person needs help or has a question after receiving the item sold on this site.
