FAQ

What is legitcheckr.com?

legitcheckr.com is a scam alert and prevention tool to help buyers that engage in online transactions in the peer-to-peer (P2P) marketplace.  


How does it work?

Users report scammers that they encounter using our report function and share their experience along with the scammer’s information. Admins then review each report to check for authenticity based on the facts provided. If the report is approved, the scammers information is then recorded in our database which keeps a record of all confirmed scammers.

 

We recommend that buyers always check the seller’s information against our database before making any online payments to confirm if the seller had been reported previously.


Why does my information come up when searched?

This could happen due to two reasons:

          1) Someone you previously sold to believed you were a scammer and made a report that was deemed legitimate.

          2) A scammer stole your information and pretended to be you.

 

If you believe you have been a victim of a false report, please contact us and provide proof of authenticity so that we may review your case.


Why is my report not showing up?

Please allow 3 – 5 business days for reports to be processed. If a report still does not show up, it would mean it has been rejected.


Why was my report rejected?

If your report is not being accepted, it is most likely due to a lack of evidence. We recommend resubmitting a new report and include as much evidence as possible related to the fraudulent activity. Attachments such as screenshots of conversations have a much larger impact on the decision compared to comments.
