Do you plan on making a purchase through an online classified ad website such as Craigslist?
GPD urges you do the transaction at a police station. If that is not possible:
- Do not meet in a secluded place or invite strangers into your home.
- Do not go to a second location after meeting at the first location.
- Tell a friend or family member where you are going before meeting a buyer or seller.
- Trust your instincts. If something does not “feel” right, leave the area. You can always sell your item later or find another item to buy.
Stay safe by staying informed about crime. Below are links to information that can help.
