8. How to protect myself from fraud?
We want to provide you with a positive experience and to help you enhance your business of buying and selling online. One of the key issues and concerns our users have relates to suspicious activities. Below are some of the behaviors you may want to look out for when dealing with other buyers and sellers.

The Seller may:

Request for payment overseas, payment to a third party, or to a location different than the one listed on the seller's ad Priced a normally expensive item at a very low price Use an image from an outside source that does not relate to the item being put up for sale Refuse to provide a shipment tracking number Repeatedly give excuses why you have not received your item Request payment through a non-traceable method, such as wire transfer, Western Union, and Money Gram Use very poor English

The Buyer may:

Request to provide a partial payment and pay for the rest afterward A buyer may "erroneously" overpay you with a cashier's check and asks you to reimburse the "overpayment", although the check is a fake. Banks will cash these checks, but the checks will fail to clear when being processed at a later time. Similarly, after sending a fake cashier's check/money order, a buyer backs out of a deal and asks you to repay by personal check/Western Union/wire transfer Insists on COD method of payment. Many scammers use fake cashier's check on CODs because carriers such as FedEx do little to confirm the buyer's identity. Use very poor English

Additional useful tips:

Try to buy and sell locally to avoid long distance fraud Always obtain the buyer/seller's phone number and attempt to communicate directly before agreeing on a sale Do not give out credit card or bank account information through email. Unless the seller has a secure credit card processing feature on his/her website that you trust, do not give out your credit card information. Be wary when dealing with sellers in foreign countries, as the distance and difference in legal systems make it difficult to resolve conflicts If possible, try paying by credit card. Under federal law, if you are defrauded by purchasing with a credit card, you may dispute the charges. Use a reputable intermediary service such as Escrow (www.escrow.com) for a minimal fee will help alleviate cyber fraud. Escrow will hold the buyer's payment till the buyer receives his/her purchased item. Upon receiving his/her item with satisfactory approval, the buyer will subsequently summon Escrow to release the payment to the seller. Hence, this will safeguard both parties from potential fraud. Likewise, use Paypal (www.paypal.com) for online purchases. It operates quite similarly to Escrow and is the most popular form of online funds transfer next to credit cards. Beware of pressure to use an escrow service not listed with the Better Business Bureau (fraudulent sellers may sometimes provide a counterfeit or mirror escrow website or even a counterfeit shipping company website). Be wary of listings relating to: "income guarantees", "get-rich-quick" or other unrealistic claims, and some "work at home and make lots of $$$" If your shipment comes with tracking, request a tracking number from the seller If a high-tech item has a serial number, try asking the seller to provide that number If and when you notice these types of behaviors from buyers and sellers, please exercise proper judgment and common sense, on whether or not you wish to deal with them.
