Avoid common scams

For buyers

  • The seller asks to be paid outside the app. They might ask for a certified check, electronic gift card, or a wire payment through a service like Western Union or MoneyGram. They might also request payment through a service like CashApp, Venmo, or Paypal.
  • The seller claims to pay for shipping fees and wants to send you an invoice. ZotZon does not set up any sellers to operate this way. You’ll always see any fees and payments for any transaction right in the app.

For sellers

  • The buyer offers more than the listed price. They usually follow by asking you to ship to a different address, use a different carrier, or if they can pay through a third party.

For everyone

  • The other person sends you a link that requires you to log in.
  • Scammers may create fake websites that look like ZotZon and ask you to log in with your email and password.
  • Never click on these.
  • The person or the post tells you about an "investment opportunity" or an "easy way to make money" by sending money.
