Verify Payment Classifieds Netiquette Rules

It is good Netiquette to ask about payment on the telephone and or through email before meeting. Do confirm payment through a verifiable communication medium.


There is a lot of Classifieds crime. Buyers have been robbed. Sellers have been robbed. Even worse has happened. Money is generally the issue. Confirmation of a payment method may scare off potential criminals or protect you if you are scammed.

Internet Etiquette

Send an email message to confirm the method of payment, price, and condition of an item. Use your cell phone to verify information after email correspondence. This applies to buyers and sellers.

Email leaves an electronic trail with the Internet Protocol Address of the sender. Cellular phone calls leave an electronic trail with the wireless carrier. The information in the electronic trail can be used to prove a case if you get scammed.


Verify payment because it contributes to a smooth transaction and deters crime.
