Taghawk Tutorial: How to Spot a Fake Listing

Although Taghawk’s verification process is stellar and there is no need to worry about fake products on the app, we want to make sure you are alert to any red flags. Here are a few to look out for:

Seller only wants to use cash

Taghawk has a safe and efficient payment system that all buyers and sellers are encouraged to use. This is because it is protected by a money back guarantee. If a seller is refusing to use the payment, it could be a red flag.

Seller asks to take the conversation off of the chat

Similar to the payment system, Taghawk has a great chat feature and there is no reason not to use it! If the seller is hoping to move to another platform, there is much less chance that we can help if the product ends up being a fake.

Seller refuses to show you the product beforehand

Whether the product is fake or not, all buyers are entitled to see the product they are paying for before they pay money for it. If a seller is not allowing this, it is fair to question whether or not the product is real.

Seller asks to be paid before you get the product

This is a major red flag. If the seller is specifically asking to be paid before the product has been received, then there’s definitely some cause for concern. If this is the case, ask for an in-person transaction so that you can make sure that you receive the product!
