Avoid online scam attempts:
✔ Don't accept cashier's checks, certified checks, or money orders by mail. These are easy to fake and are not the same as cash.
✔ Avoid buyers who ask you to ship your item. Scammers will give you a bogus high-value check and then ask you to pay cash to their driver or shipping company.
✔ If possible, deal with a buyer locally, face-to-face, or via phone. These are golden rules for avoiding 99% of scam attempts!
✔ Most scammers will not talk on the phone and communicate only via text or email.
