What role does Fluevog play in the process?
We approve and post listings, but are not responsible for John Fluevogs shoes, boots, or bags bought or sold or the transactions between parties. We do not administer, govern, or influence these relationships in any way.
Is it safe to do business with someone who doesn’t live in the same area?
There is always a risk involved when you aren’t able to complete a transaction with someone face to face. Here’s what we recommend:
- Communicate with the person you are doing business with, both by email and by phone, to help ensure that there is open dialogue. If possible, provide photos of the items you are selling before shipping the product. Remember to make arrangements for who will pay for shipping and who will pay for return shipping in the event that the buyer chooses not to follow through with a purchase.
- Consider using an online service, such as www.escrow.com or www.paypal.com, to help safeguard yourself against potential fraud.
- Consider listing your items on Ebay, where buyers can use Paypal to purchase your items. You can then list your Ebay listing here in The FlueMarket.
Internet Fraud and Online Scams:
Any time you buy or sell items over the Internet there is the risk you will encounter people wanting to scam you or someone else out of money.
Be especially wary of users attempting to gather your personal information, or buyers asking you to cash a cheque worth more than the asking price of the item you are selling. These types of scams are very common. The buyer will state that they will mail a cashier cheque to you for a value greater than the item you are selling. They will request that you wire the “extra” money not used for the purchase of the item to their account. The cheque they send you will be fake. By the time your bank discovers this, the perpetrator will be long gone leaving you to clean up the mess.
It is best not to respond to these inquiries, simply delete the emails from your inbox.
Practice Safe Swapping
What is an escrow service?
An escrow service acts as a third party that holds money or property for two parties until specified conditions have been met. When you use an escrow service, such as escrow.com or paypal.com, it works like this:
- Either the buyer or seller starts a transaction with the escrow company.
- The buyer pays the escrow company for the value of the purchase.
- The seller ships the product to the buyer.
- The buyer approves the goods.
- The escrow company pays the seller.
- The escrow company charges a small percentage of the total sale to either the buyer or seller.
How does an escrow service protect buyer and seller from fraud?
The buyer pays the escrow service, not the seller. The seller then ships the merchandise to the buyer, who inspects the goods before the escrow service releases funds to the seller.
The seller is guaranteed payment for their goods, as the payment is sent to them by the escrow service as soon as the buyer inspects and approves the purchase.
