ANTI-SCAM Policy

Protect yourself against Internet fraud!

The vast majority of ads are posted by honest people and trust. So you can do excellent business. Despite this, it is important to follow a few common sense rules following to prevent any attempt to scam.

 

Meet Sellers in person
Check the quality of the item(s) and make sure it meets your expectations before making payment

Prepayments are strictly prohibited on PostToTrade
Buyers - no prepayment should be made for either the delivery or the products. You can discuss the delivery cost, but payment should be made only AFTER the product is delivered successfully.
Sellers - don't ask for any prepayments before delivery!

Use common sense
Avoid anything that appears too good to be true, such as unrealistically low prices and promises of quick money.

Never give out your financial information
Including bank account details, eBay/PayPal info and any other information that could be misused
