Identify common scams

Your safety and security are important to us at EazzyJA. You can help us protect you by staying vigilant and identifying some of the common scams outlined below. If someone tries to scam you, please report them to us.
Protect yourself by looking out for these behaviors:
Avoid weblinks, and verification codes.
Some common examples include:

  • Someone asks you for a verification code to verify your post. OfferUp does not ask for verification codes to verify posts.
  • The other person sends you a link that requires you to log in - never click on these links.
  • Someone sends you a link to a website that looks like an EazzyJA website and asks you to log in using your personal data. Never click on these links or try to log in.
  • The person or the post tells you about an "investment opportunity" or an "easy way to make money" by sending money – avoid these types of interactions.
Use cash for in-person transactions or NCB / Scotia transfers. Avoid people who request invoices, and offers that appear too good to be true.
Some common examples include:

  • The seller asks to be paid by certified check, electronic gift card, or a wire payment through a service like Western Union or MoneyGram to complete the transaction. They might also request payment through a service like CashApp, Venmo, or Paypal. We recommend using cash for in-person transactions or NCB / Scotia transfers.
  • The seller makes an offer for an item that seems too good to be true. For example, a seller willing to sell a new iPhone for $10.
  • The buyer offers more than the listed price. They usually follow up by asking you to pay through a third party. They may also say the overpayment is for movers who will come and transport the item. Be wary of and try to avoid these types of transactions.

  • The scammers try to use fake emails like eazzyja@safe-and-simple.com.
