Internet ATV Scams



As most of you already know there are lots of different scams happening in the online classified world. It affects all web sites, not just the big ones!

Normally the story goes like this. You are contacted by the scammer who offers to send you a bank note for more than you are asking for the item you are selling. Once you get that bank note then you are supposed to wire them back the difference.
