Info Center » Scam Alert
We feel it's our duty and responsibility to inform you about possible fraudulent offers that may be submitted in response to your ads posted on Equine Hits. We decided to create this document that will guide you through understanding how scammers work, learning to recognize scam inquiries, and how to take appropriate actions.
We have outlined below the most common scammers' behaviour and a brief instruction about how to protect yourself. This document also explains Equine Hits country filter solution that allows you to track possible scam inquiries.
Please note that EquineHits.com is not involved in any sales process. We do not escrow funds, ship products, or receive products. If a seller claims that our site is involved in any transaction, their claims are false.
It is our strong suggestion that you do not wire money to people you do not know personally. It is always recommended that you pay using a credit card or PayPal when shopping online.
Rule 1 Be cautious about ANY deal from overseas.
An "Anxious" Buyer
Rule 2 An anxious buyer with an immediate check for a greater price is a serious red flag.
Counterfeit Bank Check or Cashier's Check
Rule 3 NEVER ship your item or refund a balance before the check is cleared.
Recommendation: if you ever decide to take a risk on a deal from overseas, we would highly recommend using only Western Union or MoneyGram transfers, so you receive their payment in cash from your nearest service location. To learn more, visit the Western Union and MoneyGram websites.
