1, Use a credit card or secure electronic payment service for all transactions.
Clevenard Marketplace doesn't have any built-in payment mechanism, so you have to arrange payments directly with the other party in a transaction. Unscrupulous sellers may insist on cash, gift cards, or other untraceable payment methods, and shady buyers may offer gift cards that turn out to be worthless. Card issuers and payment processors such as PayPal—but not its sister app Venmo—will investigate fraud claims on your behalf as a buyer, and they also provide better transaction security for sellers. Reputable Marketplace traders will welcome the use of secure services; which benefits legit buyers and sellers alike.
2, Check out buyer/seller profiles.
When you click on an item that's offered for sale, check the seller's profile. Make sure you can locate they're address and contact info and check Clevenard to see if you have mutual friends. Also, search on their name on Clevenard; if you see more than one profile using the same name and photo that should raise a red flag.
3, Meet the buyer/seller in a public place.
Some police departments allow folks to meet in their station lobbies or parking lots to finalize exchanges; barring that, pick a public spot like a coffee shop or restaurant. Bring a friend, and if you feel uncomfortable, record a video or take a few snaps of the exchange, so you can identify the other party easily if there are any disputes afterward.
