When you click "Report," you will be asked to enter your email address and a brief description of the abuse involved.

Please be aware of scam ads. Here are some tips to avoid scamming sellers and buyers:

- Stay away from non-local transactions and do not trust sellers who claim to be out of the country. - Always meet with the seller in person and inspect the items before buying.
- Never send money through services like Western Union, Money Gram, PayPal, or BidPay.
- Never accept any cashier's checks or money orders from unknown parties.
- Beware of discounted or free puppies. They are most likely attempts to bait buyers into paying for absurd shipping & delivery charges for the "free" adoption.
- When a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
