Crime Prevention Tips:

  • For items that can be shipped, use an online service such as eBay instead of Craigslist. Buying and selling on eBay involves no personal contact, and payments can be processed through a third-party business such as PayPal.
  • If the price for an item sounds too good to be true.  It may be a stolen item or a set up for a robbery.

  • When arranging to meet a buyer or seller, do so during daylight hours and choose a safe, busy, well-lit location.

  • Write a note to family and/or friend advising them of what you are doing…include the who, what, where, when, why and how.

  • Make a photocopy of the posting with its ID#.

  • Bring a friend and your cellphone to the meeting, and show up early. Know where you are going and show up early.

  • Do not carry excess cash or credit cards.

  • NEVER provide account numbers or PIN numbers.

  • The Allentown Police recommend conducting a transaction involving iPads, computer    ware, electronics or vehicles in front of one of the police stations.

  • If you're communicating with a stranger, don't give them any personal information and share as little information about yourself as possible, but get as much information about the other person as possible and check their background.  There are various places this can be done online.
