Buying and Selling outside the country
Over the past two weeks, there have been multiple complaints involving buyers and sellers on thecannon in Pakistan, the United Kingdom, Africa and the United States.
The vast majority of fraudulent classifieds involve users from outside Canada. In order to minimize the possibility of fraudulent activity, thecannon's User Agreement requries that user accounts and classifieds originate within Canada.
User accounts and classifieds that have contact information outside the country are immediately deleted. Please report any classifieds with contact information originating outside the country to thecannon staff immediately.
Thecannon does not review content posted in the classifieds section. Users who buy or sell through thecannon's classifieds are strongly encouraged to deal with individuals local to them.
As always, users are encouraged to take precautions when dealing with buyers or sellers online. Please consult thecannon's Best Practices Guide for more information about avoiding frauds and scams.
