“Never buy from Locanto. They always help the online...”

Written on: 26/08/2014 by KolbyLoomis8 (1 review written)

I think Locanto are using the victims feedback to become better cheats. Locanto never helps the victims and Locanto destroys all evidence of advertisements and communication by the fraudsters which could be used to track down the fraudsters. Locanto never responds to your emails and even if they do, they do not empathize with the victims. Locanto always say that they do not communicate with the fraudsters. Nobody knows why Locanto behaves so tactfully? Initially the advertiser was convincing… Read Full Review

I had the same experience and Locanto is avoiding all responsibilities and refusing to help. I wrote 21 emails asking for help and got no response. Then I send them an email praising their service and they responded. When I replied to Locanto with the explanation how I was cheated via their Locanto website they stopped communicating!. I am happy to provide you my evidence if it can help you. Locanto should be sued for millions for damage of public trust and supporting them by not acknowledging the crime and deleting all evidence from their website.

“BEWARE OF PET SCAMS”

Written on: 29/09/2011 by BobBobbington (1 review written)

*BEWARE WHEN BUYING PETS* There are many ads on Locanto that are advertising purebred puppies for free or a very low price, and once contacted they reply with a story about a lost loved one/business commitments/can't afford to look after the pet. This is known as the Cameroon Pet Scam, and many people all over the world have unfortunately become victim to it and lost a lot of money. Look out for: 1. Emails in broken English and incorrect grammar. 2. Unusual or soppy replies as to why they're… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/03/2010

I always have good experiences with Locanto, found my puppy on there and I was also able to sell some household appliances there. Once I had to contact customer service and they replied in less than a day with a personalized message and not the standard template stuff.

the only thing that is bothering me is that there aren't too many ads right now but I understand the site is still young and the name needs to get out there first. at least it is clean and doesn't have so much junk on there… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/06/2009 by Chiquis (1 review written)

I thought the locanto web site is well designed and functional and a great platform for matching buyers and sellers.
I was looking to adopt a dog. Unfortunately all of the replies I received were SCAMS...I didnt realise it at first until I got 3 replies, in bad English, telling me a similar story, all trying to get my 'shipping details' to send me the dog in question. Of course, it had to be right now as they were leaving the country... none of them actually described the dog, didnt specify… Read Full Review

On Locanto website I did not see a trick coming and I lost USD1000. Unfortunately Locanto has removed all evidence by deleting the emails and the advert content. Locanto dsoes not provide any response to the victims.

I just lost USD1000 after believing a Mac laptop advert. Locanto then deleted all evidence from their website just to protect their own reputation and are not responding to my 12 emails already sent to them..
