Computer filters are not a good substitute for human eyes and intuition.

New York's struggle to safely trade, sell, and buy in an online, digitized marketplace has finally ended with the expansion of, a safer and more secure online classifieds website now launching into the eastern tip of the U.S. New York can now rest assured that by using BONQO, scammers and spammers will be a thing of the past, as each individual ad listed on the site is manually pre-screened for its legitimacy, saving all New Yorkers time, grief, and money.

The Santa Barbara-based website was established by Ella Internet Technologies in late 2010 and, following the family-friendly site's internet introduction, has experienced considerable success in the Southern California area. The site's goal to remain a safer alternative to marketplace powerhouses such as Craigslist has since remained a top priority for staff.

According to their spokesperson, Taylor Scott, “Our mission is to make online classifieds safe and clean for all users. To achieve this goal, we've found a way to manually screen each and every ad to verify the legitimacy as well as their consistency and completeness, so those who browse our listings aren't likely to be met with possible fraudulent, offensive, adult-oriented or distasteful material,” Mr. Scott explained. Unlike classifieds such as Craigslist,'s unique human element ensures the quality of its content for its users.
