If asked to pay by using a gift card, it is almost always a SCAM! Do not fall for this! Call and report this to the police.
Watch out for those posting fake items for sale and asking you to send money to have them shipped. Especially vehicles and high-priced items. This is usually a SCAM! Also, if you do agree to buy and item and meet in person to get it, meet the person in a public place in view of others for safety reasons. And if you sell an item, be aware of who you give your address to especially if you have children at home. Instead, you should ask the person buying your item t to meet you in a public place to get it.
Some scammers are now calling and asking you if you can hear them trying to record your vice saying "yes" so they can add that recording to whatever they are trying to scam and say that you agreed on a recorded line. Do not fall for this! Do not say yes to any questions. Just say "I hear you" or better yet hang up all together since it is most likely a scam anyways.
