What are basic safety tips?
Here is some general safety tips when selling online.
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. Make yourself aware of common scams and fraud
Do not believe the promise of large sums of money for your help in any task.
4. Use common sense
If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
