Tip of the Week:
You can sidestep would-be scammers from sites like Craigslist or when posting or buying items online by following these common-sense rules:
• Deal locally with folks you can meet in person (safely)—follow this one rule and avoid 99 percent of scam attempts on craigslist.
• Never wire funds via Western Union, Moneygram or any other wire service—anyone who asks you to do so is a scammer.
• Fake cashier checks & money orders are common, and banks will cash them and then hold you responsible when the fake is discovered weeks later.
• Never give out financial information (bank account number, social security number, eBay/PayPal info, etc.)
• Avoid deals involving shipping or escrow services and know that only a scammer will “guarantee” your transaction.
• Do not rent housing without seeing the interior, or purchase expensive items sight-unseen—in all likelihood that housing unit is not actually for rent and that cheap item does not exist.
• Do not submit to credit checks or background checks for a job or for housing until you have met the interviewer or landlord/agent in person.
