Re: “Tuesday Must Read: Record Holiday Sales Continue; Craigslist Scam Hits East Bay

Good article and great information.

When it comes to Craigslist scams, perhaps I can just add to this that the best way I know to guard against being ripped off by online sales or auctions of any kind, Craigslist and eBay included—and whether seller or buyer—is to use a *bona fide* online escrow company. Especially for pricier items like antiques, jewelry and autos. Although it does add some cost, it takes the uncertainty out of the transaction, and that’s a small price to pay for peace of mind.

For my money, the best bona fide online escrow (and there seems to be ten fraudulent escrow sites for every bona fide one) is probably Escrow.com (http://escrow.com). In fact, it’s the only one that eBay recommends, and is the only online escrow company that is licensed to provide escrow services all across the United States.

PS. For more information about avoiding online scams and frauds, go to Online Escrow at Wordpress.com (http://onlineescrow.wordpress.com/)
