you specifically request a renewal before the expiration date. The renewal fee is $20.00 per six month term for non members.
This policy is retroactive and includes existing ads. Please let us know when you sell your car (or item) so that we can remove
Note: It has recently come to our attention that internet scammers may have tried
to contact some of our advertisers by email. The following is information you should be aware of when either buying or selling
If you are advertising your items for sale through print and online classifieds, beware of scammers posing as genuine buyers.
Scammers may make up stories such as needing your help to pay an agent or third party for upfront costs like transportation or
insurance. They may promise you reimbursement for these costs.
Alternatively the scammer may send a cheque for more money than the agreed sale price. The scammer will invent an excuse for the
overpayment, such as to cover the fees of an agent or extra shipping costs, or that it was simply human error. The scammer will
then ask you to refund the excess amount - usually through an online banking transfer, pre-loaded money card, or a wire transfer
- before you discover that their cheque has bounced.
In both cases, you will lose the money you gave the scammer, and if you have already sent the item you were selling, you will lose
it as well.
Warning signs to look out for -
- The potential buyer is willing to purchase your item without having viewed it in person, even if
you are selling an expensive item such as a car.
- A potential overseas buyer is interested in purchasing your item despite it being a commonly available item in their home country.
Often the shipping costs would far outweigh the cost of the item itself.
- The buyer sends you a cheque for more than the agreed price, and then asks you to refund the overpaid amount.
- The buyer wants to use PayPal to pay for an expensive item such as a car. This gives the buyer an opportunity to take advantage
of PayPal's policies to fraudently obtain a refund while keeping the item.
There have been recent attempts to contact some who are advertising their car for sale on this and other websites from an individual
(or group) purporting to be working offshore on an oil or gas rig and unable to look at the car in person. This is a scammer at
work. For further information you can have a look at PayPal's community discussion on this topic at the following website:
