Guidelines for safe trade
If you follow the guidelines for safe online shopping, you are almost always safe when you use HWEHWE.com.gh, whether as a buyer or seller:
1. Use common sense
Be extra cautious if you come across an offer that is too good to be true, or you get a feeling that something is not right. It is always possible to make good trades on HWEHWE.com.gh, but the offer for too good to be true is a possibility and you must be wise. If you get a feeling that something is not right, you should be extra careful. Examine the issue further, and do not be eager to conduct a trade or to give away personal information such as password, date of birth and social security number, credit card numbers and the like.
2. Avoid prepayment –
To be sure you do not pay without receiving the goods, you should always use the HWEHWE payment guarantee if you cannot meet the seller physically. When using the HWEHWE payment guarantee, the purchase balance on a deposit account with 3rd neutral party (for eg. a bank) the buyer has received hardware and approves the transaction. This creates greater security for both buyer and seller than usual down payment or to take cash on delivery. Never use Western Union, Money Gram International or other unsafe payment methods, and be especially wary of foreign merchants who suggest that you can use a transportation company or other intermediary.
3. Be careful with personal information
Never give your credit card number, social security number, login credentials or other sensitive information to strangers. Though the buyer and seller need to know who they are dealing with, you should not indiscriminately provide personal information to strangers. It is usually safe to give your name, address and telephone number, and if you use the HWEHWE payment guarantee is not required to provide other information to the other party. Using payment guarantee enable both seller and buyer account number to be kept confidential, so there is no risk of abuse. Also be wary of emails asking you to enter a username / password, or are told to follow a link to verify your account details. Reputable websites never send such emails and if you get such emails, you should notify the website in question.
4. Do not place ads on behalf of unknown
Remember that you are fully responsible for the content of ads that you post. If you create user profiles or post ads on behalf of someone else, you risk both civil liability and criminal complicity if the ads appear to be scams. If you are contacted by someone asking you to place ads for them, you should stop all communication.
