Your Role in Online Safety
While we do our best to protect you, online safety is a shared responsibility. Here are some tips to keep in mind:
Be Cautious with Personal Information: Never share personal details like your address or financial information with someone you haven't met in person. Scammers often try to gain trust quickly to access this information.
Trust Your Instincts: If a conversation or offer seems too good to be true, it probably is. Trust your instincts and be wary of any interactions that make you uncomfortable.
Report Suspicious Activity: Your reports are invaluable. If you encounter anything suspicious, please contact our Care Support team immediately. By reporting, you help us take swift action and prevent scammers from affecting others. If you notice any suspicious activity on site, please contact Care Support immediately and report the user in question. We will look into their account right away and remove them so they cannot attempt to scam anyone else.
