SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR POSTING CLASSIFIEDS

CatchFree is a Canadian website and encourages support from all Canadian communities. We reiterate that everyday thousands of ads are posted on this website for trading and all ads are not reviewed before they are displayed on the website. However, we areconstantly engaged in gathering reports from the common frauds and scams being carried out and make every effort to stop these. Moreover, we strongly recommend users not to give out any personal or private information over the internet. It is advised to carry out all transactions in-person and off the internet in order to fully protect yourself and others from harm’s way.


COMMON TIPS TO AVOID SCAMS

To carry out transactions more effectively and in a secure way, please take care of the following things when carrying out buying or selling transactions:

  • Make sure that the meeting spot is a public and secure place for example a bank, restaurant, or a crowded area such as a shopping mall
  • It is recommended not to directly invite people you are not acquainted with to your home. Also avoid meeting in an isolated place as public places are safer, and difficult to carry out scams
  • High Value Items must be very carefully bought or sold. These items must be evaluated by professionals first before placing bids
  • It is strongly advised against to send money online or through wire transfers to the seller before receiving the product. Mailing cheques are also strongly discouraged and payment must be made in cash, or in person in order to maintain transparency and safety for both parties
  • Kindly contact someone and inform them about your meeting beforehand. Also keep your cell phone with you at all times in order to be contacted or to contact somebody in case of emergencies
  • It is important to remind you that all transactions through CatchFree are between the buyer and seller. These must be website users as no third-party can provide a guarantee to the transaction

These simple precautionary measures can protect you and other users from harmful transactions and frauds, ultimately making CatchFree’s online trading platform safer for everyone in the Canadian community.
