Tips To Help You Stay Safe On Jiji
Keep things local. Meet the seller in person, check the item and make sure you are satisfied with it before you make a payment.
Exchange item and payment at the same time. DO NOT make any payments before receiving an item.
Use common sense. Avoid anything that appears too good to be true, such as unrealistically low prices, promises of quick money, offers to pay for releasing product from customs or whatever else.
Never give out your financial information. This includes bank account details, eBay/PayPal info, and any other information that could be misused.
Avoid meeting buyer/seller in a secluded area.
Scams And Frauds To Watch Out For
Beware of fake payment services – note JiJi.ng does not offer any form of payment scheme or protection, so let them know if someone offers such services.
Also beware of fake information requests. JiJi.ng will never send you emails requesting your personal details. If you receive an email asking you to provide your personal details to them, do not open any links, just report the email and delete it.
Fake fee requests – Avoid anyone that asks for any fees to buy or sell an item or service as JiJi.ng will never request for any pre-payments from buyers and doesn’t allow items that are not located in Nigeria, so import and brokerage fees should never be required.
DO NOT accept requests to use money transfer services such as the Western Union or MoneyGram. These services are meant for transactions between people who know well each other, not for anyone and many scams are run through them. Avoid requests to use these services.
