Dont trade/sell something and become unavailable. Dont use or trust yahoo/hotmail/freebie mails. Make sure its there isp email , ask them to email you from and for them to even verify a code sent to them via there email so you know theres is real is well.


** WAYS To Prevent getting ripped off. **

Buy from Official SH Sponsors.
Do not buy from new users.
Do not buy from users with just a few posts.
Do not buy from someone without going back and reading some of there previous sales or feedbacks. Ask for proof of good feedback from the forum.

Get all details , phone number , name & address , confirm it. Call them or have them call you. Get an email from them. Goto and try reverse lookup to see if this person exsists.

Ask for any sort of credentials. Links to an ebay account for feedback. Verify the same email address.

After you buy from a user

Go back to there thread , give a detail of the transaction. If its a Good , neutral or Bad Experience.

This way we can rate people and know if someone was a good buy or not , and if the item has been sold.

If anyone has any suggestions for the Classifieds section, feel free to PM the admins! :D

How to not get burned in online classifieds.

When selling or buying.

Make sure you get the persons full name. Yes even middle , there are more than one joe johnson. Make sure you verify it as well: name, address and phone number. Make sure that everything is working, phone and such. Try even using to reverse lookup things or type in there name and see if it comes up with that same phone number address.

Have them call you up on your number , and you get their number and call them. Make sure you see their name on the caller id if you have that option. Then possibly later that day or night or the next day call again.

Use verification type shipping services with insurance. This way you know your product got there or if the seller sent it or not. This is really the only way to get your money back....proof.

Keep an open line of communication. Dont try selling or buying something when you know you will be un-available as this looks like your trying to pull something when you dont answer phones anymore or emails.

If anyone else has anything to add , let one of the mods know.
