How Do I Stay Safe On QEP
Whilst most individuals who use QEP have great success buying & selling engine parts , now and again we receive reports of attempted scams to defraud users.
We have found that one of the best ways to avoid this problem is to ensure that transactions take place with a reputable & known Business or Company in SA or where possible the transaction takes place in person.
QEP is a local classifieds web site and most ads are not reviewed before they go live on the site.
Never send your parts unless payment is received in advance.
Never provide your personal or banking information (e.g. credit card number) to others over the Internet.
Please contact us about any attempted fraud or suspicious emails, ads, or other activity by community members.
In case of fraud or illegal activity, we also recommend that you report it to the Police.

If something sounds too good to be true, it normally is.
