Classifieds and CoOps
Verification provides some level of confidence to sellers and buyers, but it is not a failsafe and anyone using the classifieds or co-ops must take full responsibility for the purchase or sale they make. ECF cannot be held responsible in disputes between buyers and sellers - we provide this service "as is", and all due diligence must be taken by the parties involved in the transaction. Buyer Beware!
We instituted a "verified membership" system to add an extra layer of security. This system is not designed to be a failsafe, but it has reduced the level of fraudulent transactions significantly. To take part in the classifieds, you must become ID verified.
There are currently 4 different ways to become verified:
- Paypal - via your verified paypal email address
- Vouching ECF Member
If you need to become Paypal Verified first, click here for instructions (via Google).
If you're not sure whether your email address is already Paypal Verified, please copy this URL and add your email address at the end of it: Error - Login United States - PayPal <-----type your email address after the equal sign
Please note, that your Paypal verified email addresses must be the email address you used to register on ECF. If it's not the same as the one you usually use for Paypal, don't worry, you can add more than one email address in your Paypal account: Just add the one you used for ECF.
Do note that once confirmed, our moderator J0ker has to manually confirm this. Usually this takes no longer than a few days.
