Stay protected from possible scams!
A Scam is when someone represents to you they really have an item to sell you and they do not! Further, we have learned that there are some scams using our name “scootroad.com” to trick people into thinking one of our stores has the items and scootroad.com will ship the item once you send these Crooks money. THESE ARE SCAMS!
www.ScootRoad.com does not ask customers to send the payment for an item sold through our service DIRECTLY to the seller, for security reasons we use our own ScootRoad Traders agents, randomly assigned to handle your transaction.
1. Check your browser, our website address should look like this:
https://scootroad.com followed by the rest of the link. Any other website that does not look like ours is a SCAM. Please make sure you are on the right track.
2. Check your emails. Make sure that any payment invoice email coming from us ends in @scootroad.com. Any payment invoice email different than that claiming to be from us is a SCAM and should be reported. Sellers and our sales agents may have different email addresses. Our sale agents usually use their personal email addresses when Dealing on Classified Sites such as @gmail.com or @yahoo.com. Approved ScootRoad Traders Sale Agent we use for Oodle.com or another classified site:
3. If you have any doubt about your transaction, please contact our customer support by using the contact us form or by live chat. We will answer your requests as quickly as possible. Better safe than sorry.
Due to numerous e-mails we have received from our sellers and buyers, we have created this page to prevent Craigslist users against “Account Theft”, fake PayPal transactions, etc. Please read below and make sure you don’t fall in these traps.
The same method is used by these scammers to impersonate our service, they send fake links looking like our website, but when you click on them, underneath the link is a fake website, almost identical with our website. See how these scams work.
1. They send you a link with a short message, for example: “Hi, is this item yours? it has the same pictures.” followed by the link to the “item”. You click on the link and you are redirected to a fake login page identical with the Craigslist login page, asking you to enter your Craigslist account and password. Your information will go directly to the scammers and if you sell something on Craigslist, they will edit your posting and enter their fake ads or job offers. Craigslist will never ask for your user account and password when you clink on any link from their website, only when you are trying to access your “My Account” page they will ask for this information, so be sure you always check your browser.
2. After stealing your account, they will post on it fake ads and will enter their own e-mail in the description so the people interested in their items will contact them directly, not you by e-mail. So 98% of ads that have HTML description with an e-mail listed in their description are fake ads and should be flagged for removal. You contact them and they say they have the item for sale with us, will send you the link to our website (with a hyperlink to another website) and will ask you not to register, because they can send the information to us and we will send you an invoice. When you receive their invoice, you will be asked to send the payment to them directly and making the transaction through our system is your only guarantee, THAT’S NOT TRUE: we do not ask people to send the payment to the seller directly, so any email saying that is a scam and you should report it to us. We always use agents, our agents will hold the payment until you receive your item and your 10 Day Money Back Guarantee is over. Please make sure you check your browser after clicking to any links to our website.
3. Using the same methods listed above, they steal PayPal accounts which they use to pay for small items on Craigslist, saying that they can’t meet people to make the transaction in person and your item will be a nice gift for their fiance, wife, brother, etc. They will pay using other people PayPal accounts and you ship the items to them, they will offer to pay more to cover the shipping fees you will pay from your own pocket. The same method will be used for fake cashiers checks, they will send you checks for your items and when you will try to cash your check you will probably be arrested. For all these scams listed above, you can be held responsible because it is your Craigslist account, your PayPal account or your check they will be using. These can be stopped by being carefull where you enter your Craigslist account and password, PayPal account, etc. EZnet Transactions will never send you an e-mail asking for your Craigslist password or PayPal account information.
