The Classifieds

The SWAP MEET 2019

The Classified ads will be removed automatically on the expiry date, but we would appreciate it if you should sell, or buy the item(s) advertised, please let me know.

We suggest that personal classified ads have a full description of the item For Sale or Wanted, and it includes your email address, your telephone number, price expected (For Sale item), and the Town/State you are in.

Beware of buyers who offer to pay full price for an item, sometimes with an additional amount to cover shipping or other costs, and paying with a cashiers check. They will later ask for a partial or full refund before their initial payment has worked its way through the banking system. There may be a sense of urgency in completing the transaction and little interest in the details of the purchase. This is a common eBay scam that has made its way to MarketPlace. Always take payments like this to your bank to verify authenticity and wait at least ten days to two weeks for the check to clear. Be wary of buyers who ask for account information in order to wire funds to your bank. Remember, if a deal seems too good to be true, it probably is.
