Safety Tips

A good majority of our users are well-meaning and trustworthy which makes the incidence of spams and fraud extremely low.

Nevertheless, it's always vital to use the same common sense precautions online as we do offline.


When meeting someone you don't know, please remember:

  • Do not meet in a secluded place.

  • Be careful when buying/selling items that are high-value.

  • Inform a family member or friend where you're going.

  • Consider having someone accompany you.


Avoiding Fraud/Scams

  • Beware offers involving shipping; it's better to deal locally so that you can deal face-to-face.

  • Don't accept money orders or cashier/certified checks.

  • Never give out personal financial info (bank account, social security etc).

  • Never purchase or rent sight-unseen—that great "deal" may not exist.

  • Always visit the seller to see the items before purchasing

  • Don't pay until you are sure what you are taking home.

  • Don't pay online or wire funds to anyone you don't know.


Also, watch out for:

  • additional charges

  • unrealistic prices

  • request for advance payments is not responsible for any transaction or fraudulent activity. However, taking these simple precautions helps make YO Classifieds safer for everyone.
