How do I contact someone with a classified Ad?
The new classifieds require both buyers and sellers to be registered in order to participate. There are a variety of good reasons for this but we also give you the option to display either your real email or an alternate one to help non-registered contact you.

When placing an Ad, there is a spot that says "Displayed Email" - this can be any valid email account that you want to use and will be available to everyone who views the ads, including scammers. By using an email address here you maximize the number of people who can respond to your ad, but just be aware that you may also get a few spam emails.

If you choose not to put anything in the displayed email field, registered users will be able to contact you via our web server. Be sure that camaros.net is not being listed in your spam box!

To contact a seller who does not display their email address you need to register. This is quick, free and easy. Just supply a name, valid email address (the program sends you a validation email immediately) and you are in. This also allows you to participate in our popular Tech Forums and will allow access to all our new features which are coming soon.


How do I know if the seller is honest?
You may view the Member's Feedback to find out their rating.

Our classifieds allow others to rate the buyer/seller with a positive, neutral or negative feedback.

How do I leave feedback or rating on a buyer/seller?
A great feature is the ability for you to leave feedback/comments and a rating on anyone you have had a transaction with.
It is hoped that this method (similar to ebay) will help prompt action in sales that are not quickly resolved. A negative feedback can have a very large impact on the buyer/seller.

We require confirmed registration so changing names is easily tracked and will result in removal from participation on our entire site.

To leave feedback and ratings.

  • Click on any ad that the person you wish to leave feedback on has posted.
  • Then click on their username (top left of their Ad)
  • Under Seller/Buyer Feedback choose either Positive - Neutral - Negative
  • Enter your information in the Feedback comments area
  • Select Submit.
You may return to edit your feedback at a later date. There is no short-term time limit.

Please make a solid effort to resolve a conflict before leaving negative feedback. Document your problem.

Positive feedback is also welcomed.


How do I customize the page viewing?
The classifieds can be easily configured to your personal preferences.
