Don't get tricked by a scam! Always be careful when dealing with strangers on the internet. Beware of buyers or sellers from overseas, anything involving wiring money, and anything that seems too good to be true. Ads advertising puppies, kittens, or other animals are particularly popular among scammers. For more info, click here.
