Updated 11-18-2022

SCAMS. Deal locally, face-to-face —follow this one rule and avoid 99% of scam attempts.

PERSONAL SAFETY. The overwhelming majority of Car Simulcast users are trustworthy and well-meaning. Nevertheless, please take the same common sense precautions online as you would offline.

When meeting someone for the first time, please remember to:

Taking these simple precautions helps make Car Simulcast marketplace safer for everyone.

PROHIBITED ITEMS. Users must comply with all applicable laws, the CS terms of use, and all posted site rules.

Here is a partial list of goods, services, and content prohibited on Car Simulcast:

Please don't use CS for these purposes, and flag anyone else you see doing so.

FLAGS. Users self-publish tons of free postings each month, subject to the CS terms of use (TOU). CS users flag prohibited postings they find via the flagging link at the top of each posting. Free classified ads sufficiently flagged are subject to automated removal. Postings may also be flagged for removal by CS staff or CS automated systems. Millions of ads are removed by flagging monthly, nearly all of which violate the CS terms of use. Of course no moderation system is perfect, and a small percentage of ads removed are compliant. Flagged postings that comply with the TOU may be reposted, reworded as necessary.
