Amazon Payments

Amazon is ending the payment system that PennsWoods has been using for the last 6 or 7 years. While I consider Amazon Payments to be an excellent system, I’ve had difficulty making changes with Amazon in the past.

If you’ve recently made a payment via Amazon, there shouldn’t be any problem with it. I will shortly be removing Amazon based payment options from the site however.

Thanks,
Chris

Email Address Change

PennsWoods.net email addresses are in the process of being discontinued.

Please update your address books, as I am now using classifieds@losch.net for communication regarding PW Classifieds.

The address of the website will remain UNCHANGED!

Emails previously sent to classifieds@pennswoods.net have been moved to classifieds@losch.net, and currently emails being sent to classifieds@pennswoods.net are being forwarded to classifieds@losch.net. I don’t know how long that will continue.

I apologize, one of the side effects of this is that I am quite a bit behind in responding to emails. I hope to be caught back up in the next few days.

Thanks,
Chris

My Messages

I’ve added a ‘My Messages’ section to the classifieds, in the upper left.

Messages you send through the site will show up in the outbox now.

This doesn’t replace the system we’ve used for years to deliver messages to your email. However all your messages will be available under ‘My Messages’, and I hope that it will make life simpler for you.

Update to Posting Ads

I’ve occasionally been asked about the available size of the description in PW Classifieds. It is currently set to 3,000 characters.

Today I installed a package that will check the size of the message as you type it, and let you know when you are running short on space.

Please let me know if you run into any problems with it, if you hate it, if you love it.

password phishing

I’m told that some people have received emails stating that their PennsWoods accounts were reported for fraud, and asking them to click a link.

I do NOT send emails telling people they’ve been reported for fraud.

If you’ve received such an email and logged into such a page, please kindly go to the FAQ located in the upper left of the classifieds. Changing your password is FAQ #3.

Thanks,
Chris

Scam by Text

Folks, I’m getting more and more reports of scammers contacting people by text message every day. Please be aware that it happens regularly. I don’t have any rules against publishing phone numbers in ads. But if you publish a cell phone number, be aware that anyone in the world can contact you for practically free, and they may or may not be who they say they are.

Texting is a fast and convenient way to exchange information, but use caution.

Thanks,
Chris
