    Potential Fraud And Internet Scams

    Please review this information about potential Internet fraud.
    Like any form of media the Internet can be a tool for good or for bad. There is a percentage of business transactions on the Internet that are subject to fraud, scams and cheats. Just like normal transactions, buyers and sellers need to be aware of their surroundings and be cautious in their transactions. You have placed an ad on our network. For your personal security, we hide your email address from public view. Keep in mind that even though your email address is hidden people can still send email to you. Some of those contacts may be from unscrupulous people.

    Some of these unscrupulous people utilize an old scam from Nigeria that has found new prominence on the Internet. This scam is commonly known as a "419" scam and usually involves the cheating of people with a variety of routines. You may receive a message of this type so we suggest you read and consider the text at:

    We also recommend the use of escrow services � an inexpensive way to protect both buyers and sellers during personal transactions. Many banks and institutions offer these services and so does this company:

    If you need to report fraud on the Internet there is an online partnership between the FBI and the National White Collar Crime Center at

    In addition, we also recommend the following websites that deal with scams and myths perpetuated in various ways on the Internet:

    The Internet is a wonderful tool and it would be a shame for you to have a negative experience resulting from contact with bad people. We hope you find this information helpful.
