We have received reports from users who have submitted listings on Fogster that they have received e-mails
from overseas buyers proposing complex transactions that seem too good to be true. Most involve the seller receiving more than the
purchase price for an item and then being asked to remit the difference to a shipping agent. DON'T FALL FOR THESE OFFERS! We urge
you never to accept payment from distant buyers with unusual strings attached, and to receive verification from a bank officer on
the clearance of any out-of-area checks, including checks appearing to be "cashier's checks".
