1.5 PERSONAL SAFETY
USEDSTUFF believes in safety. Please take the same common sense precautions online as YOU would offline. Following these simple precautions will keep YOU safer.
1.5.1 When meeting someone for the first time
- Insist on a public meeting place like the police station, a coffee house, a bank, or a shopping center.
- Do not meet in a secluded place.
- Have a friend go with YOU.
- Do not invite strangers into your home, have the item at the door or out in front.
- Be especially careful when buying or selling expensive items.
- Take your cell phone along. If YOU don’t have one, bring a friend.
- Tell a friend or family member where YOU are going.
- Never click on email links that ask YOU for any personal or account information.
- Make sure to login to your account by typing our primary domain, http://UsedStuff.ForSale, in the browsers address bar. Be sure YOU are not typing in a search engine field typically below the address bar.
- If YOU are unsure about the status of your account or your posts, the safest way to check is to go directly to http://UsedStuff.ForSale and click log in at the top.
- If YOU are receiving email directly from another individual (i.e. YOU can see the sender's email address), it may be advisable to forward details of the messages, including the full email headers, to the sender's email account provider.
- If YOU feel the harassment is significant enough, it may make sense to report the issue to law enforcement as well. In addition, it may help to set up a block against the sender's email address in your email client.
- If YOU receive an abusive email from an address that ends with @UsedStuff.ForSale please contact us.

1.5.6 Avoiding Scams
184.108.40.206 Deal Locally and Face-to-Face to avoid problems.
- Do not extend payment to anyone YOU have not met in person.
- Beware offers involving shipping - deal with locals YOU can meet in person.
- Never wire funds (e.g. Western Union) - anyone who asks YOU to is a scammer.
- Don't accept cashier/certified checks or money orders - banks cash fakes, then hold YOU responsible.
- Transactions are between users only, no third party provides a "guarantee".
- Never give out financial info (bank account, social security, paypal account, etc).
- Do not rent or purchase sight-unseen—that amazing "deal" may not exist.
- Refuse background/credit checks until YOU have met landlord/employer in person.

- Wanting to prepay with a Cashier check, Western Union, Money Gram, or money order.
- Unable to meet face-to-face to complete the transaction.
- Email spoofing where the message may appear to come directly from USEDSTUFF.
