Basic safety Selling tips.
Some general safety tips when selling online:
- Never send your item before receiving the money — This includes never accepting cheques or payment services like Bidpay, Western Union or Money Gram. These forms of funds transfer are favoured by fraudsters.
- Shipping agents — Buyers located overseas claiming to use shipping agents are usually scams. Never pay a shipping agent claiming to be hired by the buyer. Always ship the dress yourself.
- Make yourself aware of common scams and fraud — Do not believe the promise of large sums of money for your help in any task.
- Use common sense — If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
