Avoid Scams & Fraud

Follow this one simple rule and you will avoid 99% of the scam attempts on Nawlist.

Nawlist IS NOT INVOLVED IN Any Transaction, and does not handle Payments, Guarantee Transactions

Never Give Out FINANCIAL INFORMATION * Social Security number*Bank Account number*Driver license number*PayPal info* etc.

AVOID DEALS INVOLVING SHIPPING or ESCROW SERVICES and know that ONLY A SCAMMER Will "GUARANTEE" YOUR TRANSACTION.

FAKE CASHIER CHECKS & MONEY ORDERS ARE COMMON, and BANKS WILL CASH THEM AND THEN HOLD YOU RESPONSIBLE when the fake is discovered weeks later.

NEVER WIRE FUNDS VIA WESTERN UNION, MONEYGRAM or any other wire service - anyone who asks you to do so is a scammer
