While most individuals who use Trade-N-Sell have success with buying, selling, renting or connecting with others, from time to time we do get reports of people attempting to scam or defraud our users. We have found that one of the best ways to address this problem is to ensure that all transactions take place locally and in-person. Remember that Tradensell.net is a local classifieds web site and ads are not reviewed before they go live on the site.
You should take the following precautions:
·                       When buying or selling, you should meet in-person to see the product and exchange funds.
·                       Never send or wire money to sellers or buyers. This includes never mailing a check or using payment services like Bidpay, Western Union or Money Gram to pay for items found on our site.
·                       Never provide your personal or banking information (e.g. social insurance number, credit card number) to others over the Internet.
·                       Make yourself aware of common scams and fraud (see below). Do not believe the promise of large sums of money for your help in any task.
·                       Inform us of any attempted fraud or suspicious emails, ads, or other activity by community members. In case of fraud, file a police report and contact us: admin@tradensell.net
·                       Use common sense. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
Common scams and fraud:
·                       Overpayment: A buyer or seller will send you a check and then ask for money to be returned to them. Often the check will bounce and you will have lost all money you sent to the other party.
·                       Payment for brokerage/importing: A seller claims that there are brokerage fees, import duties, or other such fees required to get an item into the USA. Do not pay such fees, as you will most often never get the product and will have lost any money you paid. Again, Trade-N-Sell is designed for local, in-person trading.
·                       Work from home: Many work from home offers are "pyramid schemes" which require you to recruit other members in order to get paid. For example, an ad may say that you can make $100 an hour by stuffing envelopes. But to make that money, you need to sell the system to others.
·                       419 Scams: You get an email saying that your help is needed to help take money out of a country and that you will be paid a commission for your help. Eventually they will ask you for money to help them take the large amount of money out of the country and once you pay you will never hear from them again.
How to report scams and fraud:
·                       If you see an ad and suspect it is fraudulent contact us right away with the ad id number and we will take the appropriate action or remove the ad completely. email us at admin@tradensell.net or phone 606-834-8865.
·                       If you reply to an ad and the person who posted the ad emails you with a suspicious request (eg. asks for money to be sent to them via a payment service), please forward us the email to admin@tradensell.net and stop all communications with that person.
·                       If you are the victim of fraud, inform us and your local police service.
