I would appreciate if you can help "flag" scam post or send me a PM for those suspected scammers come along with. I would advise especially for those House rental to not deal with them via Email. Please continue your conversation via private message so we can trace those usernames. read more here about a member's experience here

    @Sushigurl sorry I missed your comment. I have removed the post. Someone reported a rental post where poster asked to be communicated via email. I saw the screenshot of email conversation from the reporter and the poster was a bit dodgy the way he asked money from the email.

    Mukhang may mga suspicious postings from "new members" with links to some websites. Not sure how this can be handled.
