How do the classifieds on ECF work?
Verification provides some level of confidence to sellers and buyers, but it is not a failsafe and anyone using the classifieds or co-ops must take full responsibility for the purchase or sale they make. ECF cannot be held responsible in disputes between buyers and sellers - we provide this service "as is", and all due diligence must be taken by the parties involved in the transaction. Buyer Beware!
We instituted a "verified membership" system to add an extra layer of security. This system is not designed to be a failsafe, but it has reduced the level of fraudulent transactions significantly. To take part in the classifieds, you must become ID verified.
