How can I decide whether to trust someone?

Modified on: April 28th, 2020

There’s a lot of useful information in their profile. Look for the following:

  1. Are they a Pro or Elite member? Pro and Elite members undergo a fraud check when they upgrade their memberships. 
  2. When did they join DealStream? It’s a good sign if they’ve been a member for a long time. 
  3. Do they have the ID Verified TrustShield? It means they are who they say they are. 
  4. Do they have other TrustShields? More TrustShields indicate lower risk.

These are all just indicators - you still need to do your own due diligence on the buyer.
