A buyer or potential flatmate is asking me to send them money

As a seller, there’s never a reason to send money to someone in order to complete a trade. This kind of contact may be a scammer trying to trick you into a freight forwarding scam or a flatmate wanted scam.

If you’re contacted about this, please contact our team directly via abuse@trademe.co.nz.

If you have concerns about something else

If something else is raising a red flag about a listing, member, or trade, check out how you can report listings or behaviour.
