Re: Possible Scam in the Classified Forum
Hi to all,
Everybody has to be careful with any transaction and especially with an international sale. There are a bunch of people trying to steal your money or your gear.
It is best to just ignore any suspicious inquires and use Pay Pal. If you do agree to take a money order CASH it before you send your gear. I would never send any money over seas as part of a deal.
Most of these scams are very obvious. Keep in mind that NAFFF is not responsible for any transaction that takes place. Here is an excerpt from the Classified Rules. All sellers and buyers should read all of the rules.
Overall Rules and Policies for all categories
NAFFF does not guarantee the truthfulness or accuracy of the advertising placed on this site, and accepts no responsibility for claims of any kind resulting from the placement of such advertising. NAFFF assumes that all advertising is legal and is not misleading or untruthful. NAFFF is not responsible for any faulty goods or services advertised on this site, nor is it responsible for person-to-person communication. As with any transaction, BUYER and SELLER BEWARE.
Please be aware that there are scam artists out there who enjoy trying to take advantage of free services such as the one NAFFF offers here. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. If somebody outside the country "accidentally" overpays and asks for a refund, this is a hallmark of a classic scam.
