Welcome To The Future Home Of:   MarketplaceUSA.com


The best, most secure, members-only, classified ad website in the United States!

DISCLAIMER: Please don’t confuse us with any of our competition. This website is in NO way,  controlled, influenced, supported, funded, or a product of, Craigslist, Ebay, Facebook, Facebook Marketplace, or it’s owner Mark Zuckerburg.

I am looking for donors and investors who want to contribute to the cost of building and maintaining this website.  If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions PLEASE contact me by clicking on one of the links below….

Here’s my plan:   If you’re old enough to remember what it was like to pick up a newspaper and go to it’s “Classified” section and look for whatever it was that you wanted to buy, THAT is what I’m trying to accomplish with this new website:  A clean and hassle-free, scammer-free place that you can come to on the Internet to  buy, sellm or search, for whatever you are needing.

Some of that is free. Some of that will cost you a nominal fee to place your ads.

As it is now, Craigslist and Facebook’s Marketplace are chock full of scammers and the owners of those websites care absolutely NOTHING about you!  Craigslist tells you that you can flag phony ads, but when you set out to clean up their website and flag one phone sale after the other, what does Craigslist do? They block YOU instead of those phony ads!!

Facebook’s “Marketplace” if downright offensive to the eyes of anybody who goes there:  It’s full of scammers and ads that depict sexual acts which are not fit for your  eyes, let alone the eyes of your kids, or anyone else’s kids.

And what does mark Zuckerburg do about all of that?   NOTHING.  Not a damn thing!!!

NOW, my friends is the time to change all of that, because YOUR new website is being constructed as I write this and in a short time your Internet selling and buying experience will be turned back about 20 years, as you navigate through your new website and see how much better, buying and selling on the Internet can really be!

Finally, there is a classified ad website that cares about it’s members!  Finally, there is a  classified ad website that welcomes your help in policing the site!

MarketplaceUSA.com is YOUR classified ad website!!

In line with that restriction and considering the huge amount of Mexican Nationals and other illegal South and Central American “immigrants” that have invaded our country in recent years and are doing business illegally, especially in big cities like Chicago, MarketplaceUSA.com will NOT enable those people by allowing them to post their ads in Spanish, nor  will we have a translator interfaced to the site that further enables them, like Facebook does.

This is the United States of America. If you want to post ads on MarketplaceUSA, then you need to post them so Americans can read them!  If that upsets you, then I suggest that you move back to Mexico, or wherever the hell it is that you came from!!!

MarketplaceUSA.com is going to be a members-only classified ad website, where individuals and small businesses can come to buy, sell, or look for something they need.

How much does it cost to join? FIVE dollars! For just FIVE  measly dollars you will become a Lifetime member of this digital marketing community.  

Why “membership” you ask?  Because your address, phone number and credit card will be used during your registration to verify your name and your physical address, and it will give us a way to contact the dishonest ones who think they can put 1,000 keywords in their ads, or threaten other members, or if someone has broken our T.O.U.  It is the key to YOUR security!

As you can already tell, things WILL be different here.  Unlike what Ebay does, at NO time  will we EVER give any police agency ANY of your information without a court-ordered subpoena. IT WILL NOT HAPPEN, except in the case of someone who threatens another member.  

I am the owner of MarketplaceUSA.com and I’ve been on the Internet since 1996 and I have seen both the growth and demise of the Big Three in Internet advertising websites: Ebay, Craigslist and now Facebook’s Marketplace – which by the way is NOT a ”website”, it is an extension of Facebook.  

It is my intention to make MarketplaceUSA.com the safest, friendliest and most secure, classified ad website in the USA!  Unlike Craigslist and Facebook, MarketplaceUSA.com  will become the only ad site on the Internet that encourages people to openly communicate, so they can buy, sell and look for whatever they need.  If you’ve ever placed an ad in a newspaper that’s what I’m trying to accomplice here, so that when a buyer sees something they want, all they’ll have to do is click on the “Contact the Seller” button in the ad and we we will provide you with their phone number, so you can CALL them on the phone and discuss whatever it is they advertised.

- No stupid messages.
- No more “Is this still available?” bullshit!!
- And no more wondering if the seller is ever going to get back to you!

Marketplace USA.com is going to be fast, it’s going to be easy  and and with YOUR help, it’s going to be 1000 times more effective than any other classified ad website on the Internet, at selling whatever it is you want to sell.

It’s true – you won’t like everything you have to do here, but after a while, if you switch back and forth from Marketplace USA.com to any of the other ad sites, you will agree that we really nailed this one for you!!  You won’t have to “code” your phone number, or jump through hoops to be able to get someone’s phone number, or give them yours, because we will provide the seller’s phone number to you, with just a click of your mouse!!!  

Communication is mandatory! It is the ONLY way to keep scammers out of here!

So how will you place a MarketplaceUSA.com ad?

Simple!

Once you have uploaded your photos and written the text portion of your ad, we will automatically make it visible to everyone within 50 miles of your GPS location.  You will NOT have to put your ad in 10 other locations in order to achieve that, and if you do so, you will be charged for placing those additional ads!!!  

Those additional ads eat up space on our servers and they are NOT necessary.

REMEMBER: THIS WEBSITE IS DIFFERENT!  When you place an ad on MarketplaceUSA.com it will be seen by other members who are up to 50 miles away from you, so there is no need to act foolish by crowding the site with multiple ads for the same item and we will NOT tolerate that.

REMEMBER: If someone who is 100, 200 or anywhere else inside the United States really wants what you have for sale, they WILL have the ability to reach out to you, by increasing THEIR search distance and they WILL be able to see your your ad!

If you violate these policies we will charge you for your additional and unnecessary ads!

So how will you respond to a MarketploaceUSA.com ad?    Simple!  

1.  After setting your search distance, when you see something that you want to buy, just click on the “Call The The Seller” button.

2.  When you click that button we will automatically respond to you with the seller’s phone number!  There will be no “Captcha” or other garbage necessary!  Why? Because this is going to be a member’s only website and that allows us to control who will see any of your personal information….and when they see it and respond to you we will also know who responded to you!

3. Call the seller….set up a time to see the item….then buy it, or don’t buy it – the choice of course is yours!

And I strongly suggest that you pick a well-lit, public spot for your meeting, to ensure your personal safety: police station, grocery store, etc.  When I’m going to a place I know nothing about I always call a friend and tell them where I’m going and give them the seller’s address and phone number, so the cops will have the information necessary to track me down if they don’t hear from me later!

And think about this one: If you do post your number in your ad, no one but another member will see it!  Why, you say? Because this is a members-only website, remember?  

Think about it: When was the last time a scammer sent you his phone number?  EXACTLY!!!

Remember the newspaper classifieds?  
1. Call the paper.
2. Place your ad, WITH your phone number.
3. Your ad is published in the newspaper for the following day’s delivery to their subscribers.
4. Then you take calls from buyers and sell your item!

YES, it really was “that” easy, but ad sites like Craigslist drove all of the newspaper classifieds out of business and here we are now, wondering why websites like Craigslist, Ebay and Zuckerburg’s “Marketplace” are chock full of scammers and people who refuse to (here’s that word again!) COMMUNICATE!!!!

MarketplaceUSA.com is going to be “newspaper easy”, and it’s my promise to you, that you’re going to enjoy the HELL out of this new place to buy and sell !!

Buying or selling stuff on the Internet does NOT have to be aggravating, or difficult. You just need to come to the right website!    MarketplaceUSA.com

The only real difference between those old newspaper classifieds and MarketplaceUSA.com is, now we have to take steps to protect your personal information. So when you click on the “Reply” button on an ad, we will automatically provide you with the seller’s phone number, so that you can CALL him and set up a time to see and buy whatever they are advertising!

To avoid the possibility that someone isn’t being honest, we will setup our phone number relay system so it will identify the location of the seller’s phone number and provide that information to you as well!  IE: “The seller’s name is John and he is from Walnut. Illinois. His phone number is: 815-555-1212.

Your real name, your complete address, and your phone number will never be accessible to anyone who is not a member, unless YOU tell them!

If you want to use a bogus “user” name that’s quite alright, as long as we have your correct name in your registration.  Doing that will also help us protect your identity.

You will NOT have to give anyone your email address, with which they could hack your account and collect all sorts of personal information about you!  So our message to the buyer will read something like this: “The seller’s name is John and he is from Forreston. Illinois. His phone number is: 815-555-1212.”  

You will also have access to a link that will make it possible to send photos to someone, THROUGH our system, which will further protect your identity!

If the seller refuses to respond to your phone call in a short time there is always a reason for that:  The seller might be busy at his job or he might just not have time for your call at that moment, so please consider that possibility and leave him a message.  

Scammers communicate via email. Honest people use a phone!  If you see a violator, contact us and we WILL deal with them!  Our Customer Service email link will be accessible in every ad you see on MarketplaceUSA.com.

So if your in Chicago, Illinois and looking at an ad on the “Chicago” MarketplaceUSA.com page and our system identifies the seller’s phone number as one in Atlanta, Georgia, there IS a reason for that, but we just have to figure out what that reason is, and there will be a contact (Flag) button on every ad, so you can click on it and let us know what you found, and we will WILL deal with him and get back to you.

But, if they ask you for your email address DON’T ANSWER THEM, THEN CONTACT OUR STAFF IMMEDIATELY.

You will NEVER have to use your email address to send anyone a photo on MarketplaceUSA.com.

Remember – Anyone who isn’t a member will NOT be able to access the website, so they will NOT have access to anyone’s personal information!

You will NOT have to hunt to find a way to contact our staff, because our “Contact a MarketplaceUSA assistant” button will be on EVERY page you look at – unlike all of the other ad sites out there!

If all of that isn’t worth a measly $5.00 to you, then there’s probably no hope for you and you’ll probably be a lot happier seeing ads for sexual garbage on Facebook’s Marketplace, or getting an invoice from Ebay, because a scammer bought your car, but never paid you for it, or having to deal with Craigslist’s incessant use of their stupid “Captcha” garbage, just to see the seller’s phone number, which probably isn’t even there!

NONE of that garbage will be on MarketplaceUSA, so you won’t have to put up with any of it!

How to make a website secure by eliminating just ONE word!

It’s true people:  Not everyone who uses a Gmail email address is a scammer, but almost every scammer uses a Gmail address. MarketplaceUSA.com will NOT permit the use of a “Gmail” email address on our website. Then we can keep this a scammer-free place to do business for everyone!     Isn’t that what you want?  Of course it is!

At the time this was written (October 23, 2022) a quick look a Mark Zuckerburg’s “Marketplace” is showing over 6 “SPONSORED” ads for various sexual gimmicks and other GRAPIC sexual garbage and photos that YOUR kids, and YOUR grand kids can see. Sexual garbage that even Zuckerburg’s wife and two young daughters can see!!  But he obviously doesn’t care about them, BECAUSE HE ALLOWS THAT TYPE OF TRASH TO BE ON HIS WEB PAGE(S). …...AND HE IS MAKING MONEY FROM THOSE ADS!!!!!  

Easily found on the Internet, Zuckerburg’s wife is a PEDIATRICIAN (CHILDREN’S doctor!!!) at Zuckerburg San Francisco General Hospital and even SHE hasn’t been able to put a leash on her greedy husband’s failure to clean up his website!

How amazing and disgusting is it, that a man who is worth over 50 BILLION dollars, and has two young daughters, continues to allow graphic, disgusting, sexual crap to be advertised and seen on his “Marketplace”?

HE….IS...MAKING...MONEY…FROM... THAT!!!!  

Don’t those two have any morals, ethics, or a conscience?

If you come here to MarketplaceUSA.com to look at gross, obscene and pornographic images, videos and advertisements, GO AWAY, GO BACK TO FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE, because you won’t see them here and if you do, YOU will have the right and the ability to permanently BLOCK that member from this website!  

But if you abuse that privilege YOU will also be blocked!

And then there’s Zuckerburg’s infamous, stupid, unnecessary and annoying: “Is this item still available” auto-reply button!  

How stupid does anyone have to be to allow such an annoying question to be asked, any time someone who is equally stupid, hits that response button?  Come on Zucky, figure it out – IF IT’S STILL ON YOUR MARKETPLACE, THEN THEY STILL HAVE IT,  AND IF THEY DON’T HAVE IT THEY DESERVE TO BE HARASSED for not killing their ad!!!!

At Craigslist they SAY you can block those disgusting ads, or other ads that breach their Terms of Use, but if you flag “too many” ads (as Craigslist says)  they will eventually ghost your ads, so no one can see them, but YOU!  It’s just Craigslist’s way of saying “thanks” for helping them out!!!!

In the USA our Constitution guarantees us the right to Freedom of Speech.  Here at  MarketplaceUSA.com you will regain that right, but if you harass or threaten anyone one on this website you will be blocked from using it and we will contact your local Police to report your actions.

Transparency.

I am the owner of MarketplaceUSA.com and I will never hide from you, like all the other ad site CEO’s do. A link to my email address WILL be on each page of this website so you won’t have hunt down a way to contact me, and you can send me an email and voice your issue with any particular ad, or member, or one of my employees. I want to know what you’re thinking, so I can have my staff correct any errors in the site and make it as friendly as possible, for EVERYONE who comes here.

And if I become a billionaire from this venture you will STILL have the ability to contact me, because I won’t play “hide-and-go-seek” with you, like Mark Zuckerburg does!

If you have an idea that will improve the site I might even pay you for that idea – unlike the other website owners, who couldn’t care less about what you think!

I want you to feel like this is YOUR website. I want YOUR input, just like I welcome YOUR friendly criticism.  

I first got on the Internet in 1996 and joined Ebay in March of 1998 and I have seen the rise AND fall of Ebay, Craigslist and now, Facebook’s Marketplace. Zuckerburg’s “META”stock has lost 70 BILLION dollars from what it was, a year or so ago.  

With YOUR help I will do anything legal and ethical to make you a permanent member of MarketplaceUSA.com and put my competition in the dirt, but that isn’t going to be too difficult, because they’ve pretty much put themselves in the dirt, by treating YOU like dirt: Mishandling your money (Paypal); Wrongly blocking you from their site. Allowing people to post ads that are disgusting, or scammy, or violate their rules (Marketplace); Allowing the use of dozens, even thousands of “keywords” that have absolutely NO relevance to whatever is being sold. (Craigslist).

With YOUR help none of that will happen here.

I am a realist, but I’m not expecting everyone to love each other here, but I will NOT tolerate anyone threatening anyone else on this website, because the other person said that they are asking too much for their item.

I WANT YOUR BUSINESS!!  I want  MarketplaceUSA.com to become the most popular classified ad website in the United States!

If you’re a scammer, GO AWAY.  It is NOT going to work for you here!

Think about it - If you think it’s cute to put 1200 “keywords” in your ad and barrage our servers with your stupidity, we have your credit card info and you WILL be charged for it!

If you threaten a buyer or seller, make NO mistake about it, we WILL block you from the site and we WILL report you to the appropriate police agency.

Our members come here for ONE reason – to have a clean and safe place to buy, sell and search for what they need, and THAT is what we are going to give them.

As this website grows I’m going to need help to keep it functioning.  With that in mind, it’s my promise to you that I will endeavor to hire ex-offenders and our Veterans, so that they can have a good job with a REAL company that REALLY cares about them.  

I have a real love for kids. My heart goes out to each and every one of them, and seeing the St. Jude’s and Shriner’s TV commercials never ceases to bring tears to my eyes.

So with that in mind here is my gift and my promise to them, from YOU:

From all of the revenue that MarketplaceUSA.com generates, I will donate at least 2 1/2% of our GROSS income to EACH of those two hospitals, so they can continue to help our kids have happy,  productive and painless lives.  As my website grows that percentage will also grow.

Thanks for reading what I plan to do here. Sign up NOW and become a member of the first classified ad website in the USA that actually cares about you, AND our kids.

PASS THE WORD.  There’s a new kid In Town!!!

It’s MarketplaceUSA.com!!!

We are YOUR classified ad website!!!
