The overwhelming majority of Runway Junkie members are legitimate and well-intentioned. Your safety is important to us so here are some tips to avoid scams and remain safe:
Be alert for sellers who ask you to pay using a method not mentioned in the listing. If a seller demands cash by wire transfer after you contact them, cancel the transaction and let Runway Junkie know.
Sending money to pay for purchases through instant cash wire transfer services such as Western Union or MoneyGram is always risky, because you have no recourse if you don't get your item.
Escrow services like Escrow.com release your money to the seller only when you receive your item. That's why we think escrow is a good way to complete your purchases. But beware of fake escrow companies on the Internet.
Remember, when it comes to making payment, use an online payment service like PayPal or Google Checkout. DO NOT wire cash, send a money order or a cashier's check!
Buyers, don't be shy about asking the seller detailed questions about the item you're interested in, such as:
When did the seller acquire the item, and did they buy it new or used?
Is there proof that the item is authentic?
Are there any problems or imperfections with the item?
Has the item been altered in any way? (this is an especially good question to ask when buying dresses, pants and jeans)
Also, you should also know the following about the seller:
Beware of Scams
Most scams involve one or more of the following:
Inquiry from someone far away, often in another country. Runway Junkie is only intended for use in the United States.
Western Union, Money Gram, cashier's check, money order, escrow service, or a "guarantee" of payment.
Inability or refusal to answer questions about the item.
Inability or refusal to use a trusted third-party payment system such as PayPal or Google Checkout.
Inability to show proof of authenticity for item. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it is.
What if I can't reach the seller?
First, give your seller enough time to get to your email and respond. If you don't hear back then we recommend trying them again. We recommend that sellers respond to requests within 48 hours and that they ship the item within two (2) business days.
If you still don't get a reply, please contact us with the title of the listing and url (copy and paste this from your browser when you click on the listing) so we can look into it further. Although we do not get involved in transactions between buyers and sellers, we do monitor our users and want only the most responsible sellers and buyers as users of the site.
