What should I know about Internet fraud?

Easy Ads® is committed to its visitors safety and well-being. That said, Easy Ads® strives to decrease potential fraud from being perpetrated on this website. This is accomplished through a number of security measures including limiting abuse of the registration and contact forms. However, it is up to individual visitors of Easy Ads® to be aware of the potential for fraud.

Here’s a couple of typical situations:

  • Fraud carried out on Advertiser – Advertiser places an ad for his slightly wrecked car on the website and was contacted by a buyer who offered $3,600 for a $2,000 car and asked to have excess cash sent to “the shipper” (in Cypress). Buyer sends 4 money orders for $900. Seller went to bank and deposited checks and drew up a money order for $1,600 and sent it off. Didn’t know they were out the money til bank called and said the money orders did not clear. Advertiser said, “I fell for it just because I wanted to sell my S-T-U-P-I-D car.”
  • Fraud carried out on User – Advertiser placed ad for a Yorkie (Pets are not allowed on Easy Ads® except for adoption). User contacted seller and sent a deposit of $150 to have the puppy shipped to them. They never received their new pet, and were bummed.

A couple of tips: Deal locally and/or with trusted Advertisers. Avoid money orders/wire transfers. And certainly know that if it seems too good to be true it may be.

If you should see an ad that doesn’t meet our Terms of Use please feel free to click the “Report This Ad” link below the Ad’s Description.

More info: National Consumers League: Fraud.org. or the Internet Crime Complaint Center: IC3.gov.
