AVOIDING SCAMS

Please keep in mind FindersPage will do it's best to review Ads before being published. Thank you 

Check reviews and ask for references. It always helps to ask.

  • Do not provide payment to anyone you have not met in person ever. 
  • Never wire funds - 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, 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.
  • Avoid unknown callers. If you don't want to add your phone number in your post, you can add your linked to your email or website for direct contact. It's optional of course, remember only members can contact you in the chat box, which you can enable/disable anytime.
  • Watch out for email scams too. The ones that avoid meeting you in person or say there in another country or city... They will ask you to send money, don't do it!

RECOGNIZING SCAMS

Most scams attempts involve one or more of the following:
Someone that is not local to your area. Western Union, Money Gram,
cashier check, money order, inability or refusal to meet face-to-face to complete the transaction.
