Internet Fraud

There are people that cruise the internet just looking for ways to defraud people out of their money or even the products they are trying to sell.

We recommend that you as a buyer or seller ask questions of the people offering to do business with you. If anything sounds unusual, it probably is. Most people that are legitimately looking to buy your items will want to pay you the correct amount for that item. So, be aware of anyone asking you to sell the item to them for a price greater than what you have listed and for you to refund to them the difference. If a buyer wants to buy your item, they should pay you what you are asking for that item.

If you are looking to buy items on gorage.com and feel that the seller is conducting business that my not be fair or reasonable, please let us know. You can send us an e-mail at: customerservice@gorage.com. We will contact the seller. We appreciate any reports of unfair or dishonest selling practices on the site.

We are doing what we can to protect our site users, but ultimately it is up to you as a consumer to ask questions and make an informed decision before you complete any transactions with a buyer or seller.

Thank you again for using gorage.com. We look forward to making gorage.com your solution for buying and selling online.

Item Listings - Titles

Here's a helpful hint when you are considering the name of your item listing on gorage.com:

• If possible, do not use any quotation marks especially quotes (") in your titles.

The search engines do not easily recognize the quotation marks as part of the titles of pages. Whatever you title your item as, the search engines will see as the title for the page that your item listing appears on.

So, if you are selling a 40" Samsung Plasma TV, list it as a 40 inch Samsung Plasma TV. This should help with the search engine rankings. You can include the 40" plasma text in your description, which will help with the gorage search as well as the search engine rankings.

We are doing what we can to make your items visible to people searching the internet for items and not just through the gorage.com website.

We'll keep you informed on techniques to help get your items more visibility for potential buyers to see.

Thank you,
