There is a huge issue with scammers on this site, and the owners need to try better tackle it.
Within a couple of minutes to posting my items i got messages from people wanting to pay for the item via paypal and then I send it to them. Some of them worked very hard to seem genuine, adding small details but it was still obvious these people were on the scam. The messages (whatsapp and SMS) have been coming through about 1 every 2-3 hours. It's not always the same person but the same scam (get client to agree to send the item and pay for item via paypap - send fake but convincing paypal link - item is sent before seller realizes it was a fake Paypal receipt and link).
It upsets me to think how many people have fallen for this.
I don't have the answer off my head what to do but the site need to step up and try tackle this better. At least making a clear warning to the sellers on what to expect.
I will now sell my items on ebay, as they offer a good level of protection. At the moment simply giving out the item details and contact details makes it very easy for these scammers, and almost renders the site unusable, certainly unsafe.
Perhaps one different idea would be to check IPs, and related results to ips, not allowing people to search cities they are not in. It sounds a bit radical but doing something like this could help solve the problem and make it more attractive to sellers.
My item was sold, but it was spotted on another website. I had more responses from the other website although it was posted longer on that site. I think it would be unfair to rate this service.16-Dec-2018No comment
