Because of an overwhelming number of fraudulent classified ads
and credit card fraud, we've decided to handle all classified ads
directly and not use online processing. This should not be an
inconvenience to legitimate customers.
Call us toll free 1-800-564-6970 and we'll take care of the
rest. To pay by credit card, be sure to either include your credit
card information or your daytime phone number in your email.
