Never accept a check either in person or through the mail. The big scam is they are out of town and will have a courier bring you a cashier's check and it will be over for your trouble, or to hold it. It's a scam and a fake check. DO NOT ACCEPT ANYTHING BUT CASH. PERIOD. Be safe and great selling to you all !!!!!

I just got a message from a potential “ buyer” that tried to run the “ cashiers check scam on me - you know the one where the “ mover” comes to pick up the item & your asked to accept a fee for removing the ad !! I reported him & sent him a response saying I reported him & that I hope he doesn’t have pre existing warrants because agents should be coming for him soon!! Can’t believe they are still using this old trick. I guess it must work sometimes. Anyway for a heads up he was using the user name “Jakinoladeyi” on here so beware everyone!!
