Replying to classifieds

The system now makes it extremely cumbersome to reply to a seller, but more importantly now seems to require a credit card. What's up?

I just logged in and sent a message to a seller through the classifieds. I was not asked to do anything other than log in.
All I did was click the "message seller" button on the right side of the page.

Yeah, I did not scroll down far enough. But, there is a green Start button above that takes you to a 3rd party that asks you to log in, then list a credit card.

Odds are high that a deceptive ad caught you. Did you happen to look at the URL of the site that was asking you for a credit card? Did you put any of your info into that page?

I've seen those sorts of ads on many sites... parts of these sites have regular Google adwords ads rather than anything that's specifically included or approved by AIRForums. AirstreamClassifieds only wants a payment if you're putting in your own ad and want to pay make it a "Featured" ad.

Found what seems to be a similar deception on a related forum - just a big Green START button to click on. Appears to be some service with unlimited downloads. Looks easy to misunderstand when not familiar with the site controls. Maybe a yellow highlight border around outside adds on the classified pages would help. Pat

Did you click on the "Contact Us" link, in the blue menu bar below, at the bottom of most pages here? You should get a reply fairly quickly IMO.

I believe the same or similar link appears on each page over at the Classifieds site.
