Dear prospective purchasers, whilst our genuine community are generally nice people and we try our best to filter the adverts, please understand that there are scammers out there. If an offer looks too good to be true, it probably is. If you contact the purchaser, insist up front on a secure payment method (e.g. bank transfer) to be released on delivery/collection of the goods. For your own safety, do NOT agree to meet somewhere with a large wad of cash. If your engagement with a seller is “fishy”, please inform us immediately so we can take the advert down.
