Scams and frauds to watch out for

Fake payment services
AJE does not offer any payment scheme in purchases. Please, report users claiming to offer such services.

Fake fee requests
Avoid anyone who asks for extra fees to buy or sell an item or service. AJE never requests payments for its basic services and does not allow items that are not located in Nigeria, so import and brokerage fees should never be required.

Requests to use money transfer services
Services such as Western Union or MoneyGram are not meant for transactions between strangers and many scams are run through them. Avoid such requests.
