Avoiding Fraud
Jicka.com is a free classified site used to help buyers and sellers (as well as others) find one another. Jicka.com is not involved in any part of the transaction process and cannot police the actions of all users.
Here are some tips to avoid fraud on Jicka.com or really for anywhere on the net:
Deal with people in your area.
Most Scammers will contact you about your listing from other countries, some you probably didn't even know were countries. The best way to avoid being scammed is to deal with people close to you, preferably in person.
   
NEVER wire funds (ie: Western Union, etc.)
Basically if someone asks you to wire the money, you are talking to a scammer.
   
Watch out for fake cashier checks and money orders.
Fakes are common and banks may even cash them. But when the fraud is discovered you may be liable.
   
Be smart, and never share your private information.
Anyone asking for bank account numbers, login info, or your social security number is a scammer.
   
Avoid shipping and escrow.
Scammers commonly employ fake, online escrow services.
