In order to avoid scammers and the potential of being cheated by scam or fraudulent ads, please follow the guidelines below.

38. Deal locally with people and advertisers you can meet in person. While meeting, make sure that you meet in a place with people around like malls or cafes. Consider going with a friend if possible.

39. Never transfer money through wire transfer or any other mode to any advertiser on the internet. Anyone who asks you to do so is most likely going to cheat you.

40. Be careful about receiving fake cheques and money orders. Banks might accept them and then hold you responsible.

41. Some advertisers might claim that they are associated with Gulf News and GNAds4U or they are contacting you on behalf of GNAds4U, especially on email. Be careful to validate such claims as we will NEVER guarantee any transaction with any advertiser.

42. Never give out any of your personal financial information such as credit card numbers, IBAN, bank account numbers, paypal information and banking passwords. Such critical financial information must not be shared over the internet under any circumstance. We will never ask you to reveal such information.

43. GNads4U does not take responsibility for the authenticity of the ad or publisher.

44. Do not rent housing or buy expensive items without seeing them in person. Scammers will give you excuses and might try to avoid meeting in person. Beware when you feel this is happening.

45. Beware of job agencies who charge high upfront fees on signup. Research the reputation of such agencies before transacting with them and sharing any personal information.

46. Beware when you buy something that is priced in a manner that is just too good to be true. It usually is a scam when you see ridiculously low prices.

47. If you find a scam or fraud ad, please report it here. Also on every ad there is a link to ‘Report this ad’ which will help you to quickly report an ad.
