If a BUYER (or SELLER) asks you for your PAYPAL or similar money account, DO NOT. Please advise Ecay if this request is made of you.
If a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is! Always take care to ensure the item is a genuine offer before engaging in a financial transaction.
Do not apply for jobs overseas without first ensuring that the advert is genuine
We do not recommend purchasing or renting any item sight unseen. Ask to see the item first.
If you are asked to WIRE PAYMENT FUNDS, do not. Instead, ask the seller to provide a local bank in which you can deposit.
Do not engage with anyone that requires you or them to ship an item overseas.
Always tell people where you are going and when, especially if you are intending to transact alone with a buyer or seller.
Always complete transactions in person if at all possible.
Never give out your personal financial information to anyone unnecessarily, and certainly only if they are based in the Cayman Islands.
Carefully review photographs. If the item does not look as though it's in the Cayman Islands, do not contact the seller.
Always refuse an online/email background/credit check that is requested of you.
To avoid being scammed, deal locally, always face-to-face with the Seller.
Avoid continuing communication with persons using very poor grammar/spelling.
Never send money overseas. If you are asked to, please contact the Police or Ecay BEFORE you send the funds for advice.
Never wire funds. Do not deal with anyone requesting you to do so.
Is the owner overseas? Be VERY careful, it MAY be a scam.
Partial payments? Do NOT continue, it's likely a scam.
Seeking a Nanny overseas? Stop. Only local based ads for home helpers should be contacted.
Concerned about a seller? Ask them for a local contact #.
NEVER give personal, financial or private information to anyone seeking it online. Ask to meet them in Cayman first.
DO NOT email your passport or Drivers Licence to anyone. Ask to meet them in Cayman if these documents are necessary
