Safe Buying and Selling
There are unscrupulous people in all walks of life and the internet is no different. At ufish4.co.uk we treat every instance of fraud, abuse or spam extremely seriously and do our very best to protect our users and make your visit to ufish4.co.uk safe and enjoyable. But we also encourage you to be on your guard.
You can help yourself to stay safe by following these tips:
When buying or selling it is advisable to meet in-person to see the item and exchange money. For personal ease and safety, always ensure you take someone with you. If you're answering a home service ad, ask the person to produce identity and proof of qualification before inviting them into your home.
If you make a payment before receiving an item, you risk losing that money if the item does not arrive or is not as described.
ufish4.co.uk doesn’t offer any sort of buyer protection/payment programs. Any emails you receive that talk about such systems are scams, even if they may have the ufish4.co.uk logo. If you receive any emails promoting these services, please contact us.
Please also take special care when buying expensive items like mobile phones, laptops, plasma TVs and cars etc.
Never take large amounts of money with you when you do not know the person you are meeting.
Never provide your personal or banking information (e.g. credit card number) to others over the Internet.
Make yourself aware of common scams and fraud. Do not believe the promise of large sums of money for your help in any task. Be very suspicious of emails from people in exotic locations.
Use common sense. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
In case of fraud or illegal activity, we also recommend that you report it to the Police.
When you are buying services over the Internet, you need to be assured that your details will be safe from prying eyes and misuse. ufish4.co.uk is well aware of these issues and it is important that you are too and that you are confident that every effort has been made to protect you.
You are also advised to create an email address solely for the purpose of selling your items.
Do Not Proceed if: The seller is asking for payment by postal order, MoneyGram, Western Union or other untraceable methods.
