SafeTrade is a program to help users of online classifieds trade safely.
The program launched in 2015 in response to the thousands of transactions initiated on Craigslist and other classified sites that have gone awry. At this writing, 105 killings have been linked to Craigslist.
There’s nothing wrong with Craigslist --- it’s a wonderful site and a wonderful service --- but safety for users should be paramount. SafeTrade is designed to help everyone stay safe.
SafeTrade is open to all police departments and law enforcement organizations to offer. There’s no charge, no trademark, no fee. We encourage all police department and law enforcement agencies to join SafeTrade. (We’ll even supply the logo by email to any department that wants to use it, and we’re also supplying banners to a few departments as a “starter.”)
SafeTrade was developed as a public service by the Advanced Interactive Media Group, LLC, a Florida-based consulting-and-publishing company that publishes Classified Intelligence Report. The AIM Group works with hundreds of classified advertising companies around the world, and is making SafeTrade available to them as well --- clients or not. The AIM Group is receiving no money or other compensation for SafeTrade.
