Some popular internet sites continue to be used by operators who seek to take your hard-earned dollars by luring you into thinking that you’re getting a great bargain on highly sought after products. Your Tri-State BBB® wants to caution our readers to be very careful when making such “purchases” on these popular sites.

In these instances, the operators offer products at very attractive prices on internet classified advertising sites. The victim is then instructed to deposit cash funds into an account designated by the schemer. Once funds are deposited, no products are ever delivered.
