    the first site you posted does not open for me. looks like some kind of hacking that my security software is blocking. just a blank sceen to me.

    my advice is, don't give your credit card to anybody that sends you spam and get a new email address for your friends and family to talk to you without you needing to see this spam.

    says you won't be charged. but of course, you will be charged. they don't do this for free.

    I'm always wary about putting in any information over the internet, and I think that's just a good practice everyone should do. I think I was the last person in my neighborhood who has done online shopping, and I did that just once, lol. :sun_smiley:

    Rule #1 If you are gong to advertise on CL or other sites get yourself a separate email account to receive replies. When you have completed what you needed to do you can delete it or walk away and never be bothered by the crap that will contnue to come as your address is sold and resold to spammers

    Rule #2 If you receve a reply unrelated to your item it is SPAM and 99% likely to have an ulterior or illegal motive behind it.

    Rule #3 Don't put your cell # into any data collection box that does not explain what it is for and how you can stop unwanted (or no longer wanted) text messages.

    Rule #4 if they are collecting any sensitive or financially related information and the website is not secured (eg begins with https:// and not http:// then don't submit it.

    Repory CL Spam to spam@*****slist.org.
    Obviously ***** = c r a i g
