Shop Safely

Stay safe when trading online. Here are some things to look out for:

For Buyers

  • Item sold at a very low price compared to similar items from other sellers. If it’s too good to be true, it probably is.
  • Seller allows you to make a partial payment 1st, then full payment after you receive the item.
  • Seller claims to be unavailable to meet for cash-on-delivery.

For Sellers

  • Potential buyer offers a very high price for your item.
  • Buyer requests you to pay additional fees such as for shipping or insurance.
  • Buyer sends fake proof of payment or overpays with cheque then requests for a refund.
  • You receive fake emails from seemingly legitimate websites requesting for payment.

Safety Tips

For Buyers

  • Cash-on-delivery is the safest option. Only pay after inspecting goods in person.
  • Transfer money to an unknown seller at your own risk.
  • Meet at public and well-lit places such as a shopping center or mamak.

For Sellers

  • Be careful if you are requested to pay anyone for anything.
  • Avoid deals where the buyer offers to pay using Western Union, money order, cheque or similar.
