- Avoid Scams -

As with any classified and posting service on the internet, there may be some fraudulent responses and/or unsolicited e-mails received. Posters and users alike should keep this in mind and screen e-mails and communications carefully. There is nothing that can be done to fully prevent this. You may want to consider creating a separate e-mail account for the purpose of using this posting service.

You can help avoid would-be scammers by following these common-sense rules:

  • Anything that sounds too good to be true, probably is. Remember that there are millions of classifieds and postings across the country and it is unlikely that someone is legitimately offering you an outlandish amount of money for your particular item.
  • Stay local and avoid inquiries that involve shipping. Whether you are posting or shopping, use Tack-it classifieds to find what your looking for locally. Speak by phone and arrange to meet in person to make any final transaction. If the person you're dealing with refuses to give a phone number or meet in person, it is likely a scam.
  • Tack-it is not involved in any classified or Sponsor posting, and does not handle payments, or guarantee transactions. Tack-it does not manually review postings for appropriate content prior to release thus Tack-it does not nor cannot guarantee that information listed in the postings is 100% accurate, nor do we contact posters to certify the information they post in their ads. Postings that appear fraudulent can be 'flagged' by any user and may be reviewed or deleted, but it is not possible to locate all false postings.
  • Do not wire funds, use cashier's checks or money orders or give out any banking or financial information. Anyone transaction that involves sending money using a wire service is most likely a scam. You are responsible for any and all transactions on this site.
  • Most scams involve one or more of the following:
    • Inquiry from someone far away, often in another country
    • Money transfer services (aka money wire), cashier's check, money order, shipping, escrow service, or a "guarantee"
    • Inability or refusal to meet face-to-face
    • Greater interest in the financial transaction than the content of the posting.
