less static, fewer scams
Hyper local (Geo-searched) listings focus on quality and locality, making it easier to spot unfamiliar and potentially inappropriate content.
Everyone—buyers and sellers—must be members in order to create a listing or respond to a listing.
Each person has a profile, a potential rating or a history of comments allowing you to see everything they are selling and giving you an idea of who they are, and whether you should trust them.
Messages between people happen on the website/app (not via email), adding an extra layer of privacy.
Every member has "stats and verifications" on their corners, the more they have, the more trustworthy they are- check out how many people “follow them”- which will give you an idea if they are trusted.
You can report any listing, member or message as inappropriate and our support team will take immediate action.
Every day we're hard at work actively monitoring all website activity and content in order to enforce our listing policies.
We employ automated tools to detect spam and possible fraudulent activity.
We’re here for you. Contact us anytime by replying to any email we send you or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We rely on you to be respectful, honest and courteous so that our classifieds remain a fun, friendly and safe place to be.
Be nice, even generous
Be friendly, creative and inventive
Don't lie or misrepresent
Don't harass, stalk, threaten or abuse other people
Respect the privacy of others

Have fun, don't make fun
Life's short, don't be too serious
Eat your veggies
We hope that you'll get to know your like-minded moms better.
But when meeting strangers, it's important to take common sense precautions.
Meet in a public place, like your favourite café or petrol station.
Tell a friend where you're going or bring them along
Bring your mobile phone
Ask lots of questions, no good rushing things
Be super prudent when buying/selling high value items

If you don't like the vibe, walk away from the deal

privacy comes first
Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us and we are committed to respecting your right to privacy in everything we do. Your personal information is always kept private and secure. We will never share or sell your personal information. We will never send you unsolicited emails or postal mail. We hate spam and respect your right to privacy, especially because it ensures your safety.
If at any-time you feel the need to change your identity on Moms list Classifieds, you can do so by changing your username and corner name (everything is editable) while retaining your account verifications.
Moms list Classifieds works its magic through proximity, putting you at the centre and displaying what's around you. To calculate the distance between you and an item, we need to know exactly where that item is located. If we allowed listings to general locations such as Johannesburg, then you wouldn't know whether that item is 3 blocks or 13 km’s away.
With location privacy enabled, your exact address is concealed and it will never be shared publicly or privately. Instead, a small radius around you is displayed with the exact centre-point randomly displaced for further privacy. We recommend location privacy be enabled for all non-business users.
If you're not comfortable sharing your real address, we totally respect that. Your peace of mind always comes first. Try using a nearby intersection or even a local point of interest (e.g. Sandton City). Just keep in mind that it won't be as accurate.
avoiding scams and frauds
Outsmarting scammers is not as hard as it sounds. You can avoid 99% of all problems by following these simple guidelines: meet face-to-face, in public and pay in cash.
Agree on a plan. If it changes last minute, cancel.
If you are intimidated or made to feel guilty, leave immediately. It's a scam.
Don't wire funds, especially via Western Union, MoneyGram or any other wire service. Scams!
Never give out financial information to a stranger, even your PayPal email address (you'll get spam).
Try not to use escrow services, scammers use them.
If it's too good to be true, guess what? It’s a scam.
Avoid overseas transactions with strangers. Not that we're xenophobic, but stranger + foreign = scam mage.
Illegal activity always leads to problems. Just don't do it.
Moms list staff accounts are labelled with "Staff". If someone says they work for Moms list and do not have this label, please report them.
Remember, we are not involved in any transactions.
