A WARNING TO OUR
There are some low characters who respond
to classified ads with an offer to purchase advertised
items with a check in excess of the listed price. The
idea is to trick an advertiser into sending them their
change before the advertiser realizes the "cashier's
check" or "certified check" is a fake. These creatures
use computers to generate many e-mail messages a day.
Our readers and advertisers are too smart for this ploy,
but we suggest you invite them to send you the check
immediately via Federal Express at the highest rate.
How to place an ad? Send your request to email@example.com
Some categories of classified advertising are
free. On this page, articles for sale, articles wanted,
ads for animals (although not services) and announcement
ads for non-profits are free categories.
