Online Safety Tips
Offerness.pk continues to strain its level best in order to provide users one of the best experiences online in selling, buying items and services while connecting to so many people near you, yet we are reported of attempted scams or defrauding our user. We believe that one of the best manners to address this issue is to ensure that all Offerness.pk transactions take place locally and in-person.
We request you to observe below given precautions while online at Rulgaye.
- Try to avoid paying in advance under any circumstances, especially to the seller whom you do you know. Such is the case with sending wire transfers to sellers or buyers.
- Mailing a cheque or using services such as PayPal, Bid Pay, Western Union or Money Gram, CashU, Easy Paisa should also be avoided or used with great caution.
- Advance Payments should strictly be avoided at all times but can be used for sellers you personally know and Even if the seller discloses this/her personal information or bank account number, this does not protect you from being cheated.
- All transactions should be finalized upon meeting in person in order to check and see the product and pay accordingly. Meeting publically, such as some mall, restaurant, park or coffee shop ensures safety of the parties and reliability of the transaction.
- Do request original receipt of purchase or at least a written receipt for that matter.
- You must not send the Item/goods before payment arrangements have been properly finalized.
- Make yourself aware of common scams. Promises of paying large sums of money for your help in any task are simply scams.
Extra Caution To Be Exercised When…
- The offer appears or sounds to be too good to be true. Always use common sense.
- Providing Credit Card or Bank Account Details.
- The other party keeps pushing you to complete the deal.
- Personal or banking information (e.g. ID Card number, bank account number) over the Internet is requested.
- Where possible, request original receipt of purchase or at least a written receipt.
- Paying large amounts of moneys to people you don’t know. Try to meet up in a public place or at a shop.
