Here are some general precautions you can take to ensure success.
When buying or selling, you should meet in-person to see the product and exchange funds. TradingCradles.com is all about local transactions.
Never send or wire money to sellers or buyers. This includes mailing a check or using payment services like Bidpay, Western Union or Money Gram to pay for items. If a buyer sends an "overpayment" and asks that you send the difference back to them via a check/money order, this is a scam.
Do not give out personal or banking information (e.g. social security number, bank account number) over the Internet.
Inform TradingCradles.com of any attempted fraud or suspicious emails, ads, or other activity by community members. In case of fraud, file a police report.
TradingCradles.com does not offer any sort of buyer protection programs or secure payment systems for items. Any emails or web sites that refer to these programs are scams, even if they may have the TradingCradles.com logo. If you receive any emails promoting these services, please forward the message to our parental team.
Use common sense. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
