Important Information Before You Sell at an Auction
Many of our readers ask this question: How do I know if an auction house is legit?
If you are unfamiliar with the auction house, ask for references and look up online reviews. Make sure money for your items is kept in a separate escrow account. This will protect you from loss if the auction house has financial problems. If the auction house has been in business for a long time, they are probably OK, or you would read negative reviews. But check to see if there has been a recent change of ownership. Do your homework.
