Beware of SCAM around apparent high value offers.

Hi members,

I hope you're approaching the holiday season with boundless enthusiasm.

I hate to break the reverie (or revelry) with a note of caution but sadly we need to be alert for scammers.

Freecycle groups around the world have been reporting a scam where an apparently high value item is offered, typically iPhones, iPads, etc. When contacted the person reports they are in a remote location and requests a small postage fee to send you the object.

Guess what? You will get nothing in return. No item and no refund of your money.

Sadly, we need to be alert to these scams - I've already identified one in Perth and seen activity across numerous Australian groups.

Please protect yourself and if you have any doubts about offers ignore them and/or report them to the moderation team

Take care - enjoy your holidays if you have them them.

Look after yourselves and your families and friends.

All the best
