These things can't be avoided especially in free sites. I suggest we have 2 sections here. The free site and the one for people who want to have a membership and pay a minimal fee to place and reply to any sort of ads. I think that there will be no "timewasters nor fake ads" in the membership site.
And of course there are clearly users on this site who are anything but Expats.
A guest worker does not suddenly become an "Expat" just because she is dating
a Westerner. These people make the most ridiculous offers for items that clearly did not come from a night market. I am speaking from EXPERIENCE.
