Best Practices for Buyers and Sellers
- Use Messages to communicate about KSL Marketplace listings whenever possible. Never provide personal information that is not available to the public.
- Be wary of dealing with those who are outside of local communities, especially outside of the country
- Be cautious of anyone who refuses to communicate on the telephone.
- Always verify the item's condition and payment before concluding the deal.
- When using common payment platforms like Apple Pay, Venmo, etc., have the item in hand before sending money.
- Be cautious of uncommon payment apps.
- Meet in public to complete transactions.
- Always print a copy or screenshot the listing for your records.
Suspicious Activity When Selling
- You are asked to verify your account via a Google code.
- The buyer explains that he/she is currently out of the country.
- The buyer offers to pay with a money order or cashier's check for significantly more than the asking price.
- The buyer explains that a third party or service (other than PonyEx) will pick up the item.
- The buyer requests authentication or requires a history report on the item/vehicle through an unknown source, often with an accompanying website link.
Suspicious Activity When Buying
- Listing images do not seem original or are commonly used on other sites.
- The buyer asks for payment before you have seen the item or property.
- Images have background details that are abnormal to the local area (e.g. palm trees).
- The seller tells you a third party or service (other than PonyEx) will deliver the item.
