How do I know if it's fraud?

So you know you need to be vigilant about fraud - but how can you be more aware of it, and hopefully avoid it? Here are some things to look out for:

  • We say it because it’s true - if it appears too good to be true, it probably is. Especially if it’s advertised at a suspiciously low price
  • The seller wants payment before sending you the item
  • The seller can’t meet you in a public place but wants to deliver the item personally
  • The seller asks for personal information like your bank details, your email address, your debit/credit card number

Both buyers and sellers are equally at risk, so of you’re a seller keep an eye out for:

  • The buyer insists on using a cheque, western union or MoneyGram
  • The buyer demands you send the item before they pay for it
  • The seller asks for personal information like your bank details, your email address, your debit/credit card number
  • The buyer is from a foreign country

If you suspect an ad, please click on the “Report item button” on the side and follow the prompts. If you have been a victim - and we sincerely hope you weren’t - please contact us as soon as you can.
