REPORT SCAM BIRD INTERNET ADVERTS/SALES HERE PLEASE

Recommended Posts

REPORT SCAM BIRD INTERNET ADVERTS/SALES HERE PLEASE

 

Here's the idea for this thread.

 

I'm sure, like me, while you are cruising the free-ads and internet classifieds you come across many SCAM advertisements offering such things as

 

FERTILE PARROT EGGS and PARROTS SHIPPED FROM ABROAD etc

 

So what I thought we could do was form a thread where members post the link to the offending advert on here and then we could report according to the procedure on each site.

 

Some sites now have a REPORT button on each individual advert. Others you contact through an email CONTACT US link.

 

I would ask please that only the link to the advert itself or the page where it can be found is posted please (in this case a wee bit of info as to which ad we are looking at would be fine).

 

PLEASE DO NOT POST ADVERTS WITH TELEPHONE NUMBERS AND/OR EMAIL ADDRESSES VISIBLE.

 

Adtrader can be a bit tricky to link to but I have found if you click on the ad, it then pops up, right click on this ad, select properties, and then highlight and copy the URL address and paste that to the thread.

 

Some of the sites require you to be registered to report items but I would imagine that between us all we should have all the sites covered.

 

This is a new venture for the forum and so the thread may well go through a few changes until we find a system that is efficient and easy to use. As such if it is found that the thread is being used to direct any abuse towards legitimate advertisers - even if the ads may seem displeasing to some - then the thread will be deleted.

 

 

Also please read this thread

Just found this lot...there are 20 on this page alone.

A few have been reported enough times to get flagged but it needs others to add their voices, please. It's all the '200' ones, which have several different pics but identical wording.
