Safety tips

Read Buyer and seller protection by PayPal

Our website does not facilitate transactions, handle payments, or offer buyer/seller protection or certification. Scammers may try to deceive you with official-looking ([email protected]) fake emails claiming to offer guarantees, seller certifications, or payment handling services.

To avoid scams, follow these guidelines:

1. Shop with reputable sellers

- Ensure that you only shop with reputable sellers who provide detailed information about themselves, such as photos, social media profiles, and FAI/CIVL ID. This information will help you verify the seller's identity and establish trust before making a purchase.

2. Beware of amazing deals

- Be cautious of deals that seem too good to be true, and compare prices before making a purchase. For example, if a seller is offering almost a new paraglider (Ozone Enzo 3, 2023, 5h) for $1.000, would you belive it?.

3. If you are in doubt!

- Arrange a video call to inspect the item or just to get to know the seller.
- Ask for more details and photos of the item, and request specific angles or videos. A legitimate seller will be happy to provide this information.

4. Avoid sellers who are unable or unwilling to meet in person.

5. Payment services

- Avoid using anonymous payment services such as Western Union, Moneygram, Ria Money Transfer, and Skrill, as these are frequently used by scammers. Instead, opt for a secure and traceable payment method such as PayPal "Goods and Services" option. It's important to note that you should refrain from using the "Friends and Family" option within PayPal to ensure additional transaction security.

6. If the seller refuses to use your payment method

- If a seller refuses to use your preferred payment method, such as PayPal, it may be a warning sign. Using a secure payment method not only helps to protect your money and personal information, but it also provides a layer of security for both the buyer and the seller. It's best to avoid a seller who is unwilling to use a secure payment method and find another seller who is willing to use one.

7. If the seller has not provided links to their social media profiles, try searching for them by name on social media.

8. Reach out to people who may know the seller to gather additional information before making a purchase.
