As with any Classified Advertising website there is the risk of dealing with Fraudulent and dishonest users. However, we have taken several measures to make our platform as safe as possible and we very much encourage and appreciate any assistance from the community to help moderate and keep the site a safe and healthy trading environment. As such, ads can now be flagged (go the bottom of page and click on ‘Report Problem’) and 2 or more reports on an ad (from separate users) will result in the ad being removed. Additionally, public comments can be made on all listings and we now implement an GEO IP matching protocol, where if the IP address of the poster does does not match the location stated on the ad, the ad will not be approved. Countries notorious for Internet scams (like Nigeria) have been blocked completely. Even with all of these security measures in place users should still always use their best judgment with any transactions they decide to enter or initiate, as The Vape Trader will not be held responsible for any losses or damages as a result of using our site. Please read our Protect yourself from Fraud article
for few simple ways to help ensure safer transactions when using our platform. We recommend using Paypal (goods and services) or an independent Escrow service (such as Escrow.com) for any transaction that is not local and will involve shipping.
