Avoiding Scams

Caution: Classified scams may target both buyers and sellers! We recommend only local sales and trades!

Due to some resent complaints about scammers trying to contact our members we restricted "reply to posting" and "contact user" only to logged in, registered members of the site. If you notice a suspicious email, please click on “contact us” at the bottom of each page and report it or forward the email to cfadmin at iguntrade.com so we can post the info here. Please copy-paste the whole scam email including the email address that sent it. If it is a scam we will block the member/email address from accessing and emailing any other members on the site.

Most people already know and can easily recognize a scammer. If you are ever suspicious please report the email and we will investigate.

Here are examples of emails that some of our members received:
