The VenomousReptiles.org Classifieds is an online swap site. It was
started to give the Venomous Reptiles community a place to buy and sell on the internet
for no cost. It is better than Usenet newsgroups (such as rec.pets.herp)
because the people posting messages here don't get put on a spam list
if they make a post. The minute you post on rec.pets.herp, you have given
all the spammers your email address.
We also offer email notification for a specific item of interest. If,
for example, you are looking for a Chevy Citation, just add Chevy Citation
to your keyword notifications, and you will receive an email each time
someone adds a posting for a Chevy Citation. Click on the Configure link
at the top of this page to set up your own notification.
Using the VenomousReptiles.org Classifieds is Free. You can search
and post items here for no charge. Unlike an auction site, we collect
no money from the sale of any item at this site.
If you have questions, problems, or suggestions regarding the Ads
section, please email the Classifieds
When you first arrive at Ads, you will see the last

Searching for Classified Ad
If you are looking for something specific, then click on the Search
link. You can search by category, date range, text, and whether or not
to include sold items with your search results. Any of these items can
be combined to narrow your search results.
To add a For Sale or Want To Buy post, click on the Add link
on the top menu. You are required to enter your full name, email address,
Nick Name, telephone number, and a caption for your ad.
Finally, you must select a category from those available. If none of the
categories match your item, you can post it in the Misc category or write
Manager and suggest a new category. The description field is used
for a detailed description of your item(s). You can even attach a picture
of your item for viewing.

If you think you have been ripped off by another member of VenomousReptiles.org,
there are several things you can do, depending on how far you want to
take your complaint. We recommend you start with the first two steps below,
before following up on any others.
- Talk to the other member. Sometimes it may seem like you've been ripped
off when what really has happened is there has been a miscommunication.
See if this is the case before you take your complaint to the next level.
- Contact the Classifieds
Manager. If you feel this is an outright case of fraud or a blatant
misuse of the VenomousReptiles.org Classifieds, send us an email with
the person's Nick Name. We will investigate it and if we are able to
determine with certainty that there was a misuse we will block the member
from using the site and delete all of their ads. Please consider this
a fairly extreme measure - it takes a lot of time to follow up on these
- Contact a third party to resolve the problem. If you need to, contact
an outside party to arbitrate your dispute.
- File a formal complaint. If you paid for an item but never received
it, this is considered mail fraud. You can contact your local Post Office
or the National Fraud Information Center
(http://www.fraud.com) and file a formal complaint.
