In Moderation

Recently we had an ad selling a jet pack. The ad boasted that the thrust could launch a person 10 feet in the air. I wouldn’t buy it, but was curious who would. Would it work? Would the buyer post a youtube video, when they tried it out?
Yes, this was a prank.

But how did we find out?

We picked up the phone and called them.


Our moderators go to great lengths to review as many listings as they can and to review each reported ad to make sure that what we are selling is legitimate. They work with buyers and sellers everyday. They are the life blood of what we do here at

To our moderators Wendy, Terry, Michelle and Kim and to all the volunteers we thank you! You make all of our UsedEverywhere sites safe!

If you want to help make sure that your community’s site is as safe, let us know of any listings which might be questionable. It only takes one click, report it.
