How to avoid seller fraud?
Any attempt by sellers to misrepresent themselves, or the products they're selling, is seller fraud.
If a deal seems too good to be true, it probably is. Some warning signs may include:
- Heavily discounted or sold-out items. If a seller has lots of high-value items at suspiciously low prices, or a stock of hard-to-find goods that are sold out elsewhere. You can Google the items to check that.
- Be wary if you see a listing from an account that was previously only used for buying, but is now selling a large number of high-value items.
- Fraudulent sellers often want to close a deal quickly. Short duration listings perceived by fraudulent sellers as a way to avoid a detection.
- Offline messages- avoid them. Up4Sale messages is the safest way to contact other members, but be careful if a seller asks for your personal contact details, such as an email address or phone number.
- Avoid Off Up4Sale purchases, for example by paying cash or transferring money to an overseas account.
