You can recognize a possible scam by following these common-sense rules:

* Deal locally with folks you can meet in person - follow this one simple rule and you will avoid 99% of the scam attempts.

* Never wire funds via western union, moneygram or any other wire service - anyone who asks you to do so is a scammer.

* Fake cashier checks & money orders are common, and banks will cash them and then hold you responsible when the fake is discovered weeks later.

* CHBO is not involved in any transaction, and does not handle payments, guarantee transactions, provide escrow services, or offer "buyer protection" or "seller certification"

* Never give out financial information (bank account number, social security number, ebay/paypal info, etc.)

* Avoid deals involving shipping or escrow services and know that only a scammer will "guarantee" your transaction.

Recognizing scams

Most scams involve one or more of the following:

* Inquiry from someone far away, often in another country

* Western union, money gram, cashier's check, money order, shipping, escrow service, or a "guarantee"

* Inability or refusal to meet face-to-face before consummating transaction
