Seller / Buyer Identity Verification
If you are using Facebook Marketplace, or other online marketplace, you know how it is. You find a great buy, contact the seller, but something sound fishy. You want to make sure he is legit and not a scammer hiding behind a fake account or even worst, hacked an account to scam. It’s a pretty large purchase, and you just want peace of mind before buying it. Our seller / buyer identity verification can be the right service for you. You just have to tell us the name and phone number of the seller, we will match our databases and let you know if the information are really connected to that person or not. We won’t share any additional information to protect the privacy of the seller / buyer, but we will confirm if what you have are really affiliated to that name.
Most of the time, scammer will take an identity (real or not) and use a VOIP number to look more real. If you don’t have a phone number, we can also work with an email address or any other information you might have.
This service works also when you are selling something on marketplace. Sometimes, you want to make sure you have a real buyer on the other side of the deal and not a scammer trying to do a fake payment or fake check scam to you. We will verify the information you have and confirm or not if they are correct.
