Safety Tips

Use your common sense. Usually if something sounds too good to be true, chances are it will be.

Requests to use money transfer services i.e. Western Union or MoneyGram. Services like these are not meant for transactions between strangers. We highly recommend against using these forms of payment when buying or selling on fgclassified.com
Request to pay via Bankers Draft.

 

It’s a common misconception that a bankers draft is equivalent to sending cash; this is not true. Banker’s drafts still have to clear much like a cheque.

In our experience, fraudulent overseas ‘buyers’ ask the seller to accept a bankers draft as a method of payment. The seller arranges shipment of goods to the ‘buyer’, whilst at the same time, the bankers draft is swiftly cancelled; thus leaving seller out of pocket from paying for shipping, and also never having received payment for the now ‘sold’ item.
