Scams and Fraud Alert

You can avoid scams and fraud by following these basic rules:

  • Never wire funds via Western Union, MoneyGram or any other wire service. Anyone who asks you to do so is a scammer.
  • Be aware of fake cashier checks and money orders. They are common, and banks will cash them and then hold you responsible when the fake orders are discovered.
  • GNR Classifieds is not involved in any transaction and does not handle payments, guarantee transactions, provide escrow services, provide buyer protection or seller certification.
  • Never give out financial information like your bank account number, social security number, etc.
