Avoiding Scams

-**Only deal locally in person, always deal at a public place**.

-Never provide any credit or financial information to the seller or buyer.

-Avoid items that need to be shipped to you, almost always these are scams.

-Avoid all transactions that ask for wire transfer, escrows, western union, moneygram, etc.

-Watch out for fake cashiers checks and money orders, you're held responsible when cashing a fake check.

-Gogolistings does not process any transactions, nor involved in any transactions, does not handle any payments, provide any guarantees, escrows, or buyer protection or seller background checks or certifications. If someone says that an item is guaranteed by gogolistings, it is a scam. Gogolistings is not responsible and can not be held liable for any transactions.

-Avoid dealing with someone who sells or wants to buy from far away and can not meet in person.

-DO NOT deal with distant buyers or sellers, Do not use wire transfers, do not cash fake cashier's checks from distant buyers, Do not ship items to distant buyers, Do not send money to distant sellers, If you can't deal face to face in person locally do not go through with the transaction period.

-If the deal is too good to be true then it's probably a scam. If the buyer pays over the asking price and ask you to wire the extra money back it's definitely a scam. If the deal is not a straight forward face to face transaction then it's probably a scam. If the seller says he/she is not with the item and require you to send a check or wire money it's 100% fake. If the seller asks you to use an online escrow service it's definitely a scam (almost all escrow services online are fraudulent, run by scammers to make you believe your money is safe).

-The internet is full of scammers out there, and some of them have become very creative, so be vigilant and be smart. Remember you are responsible for all your transactions.
