| Fighting fraudsters on social media

The Internet is an easy place to run scams, and occasionally people try to defraud people on Janglo too.

To warn us of specific cases or individuals, please email us at fraud@janglo.net

Vacation rentals are one of the most common areas for thieves to operate, since it often involves customers wiring large amounts of money overseas to people they have never met. If you are ordering a vacation rental online, whether on Janglo or another site, please make sure you check out your seller and are confident that he is legit. 

In general, Janglo can not vouch for any user, and we have no way of knowing whether any post is legit or not. If you know that a poster is not legit, please email us at fraud@janglo.net. 

The golden rule is: trust your instincts. If you get a bad feeling from someone, don't give him money without making sure the product or service is what you expect. Better to be extra careful before a purchase than reacting to a theft or fraud afterwards. 

Here's some other best practices to stay safe:  

  • Deal with people in person locally - follow this one rule and avoid 99% of scam attempts.
  • NEVER wire funds using a wire service - anyone who asks you to do so is likely a scammer.
  • Never give out financial details, like bank number, credit card, Paypal, etc.
  • Avoid deals requiring shipping or escrow services. 
  • Do not pay for housing or goods without seeing it up-front. 
  • Do not agree to background checks until you have met the job interviewer or landlord/agent in person.

We're always working to block scammers from posting, but they in turn are always working for new ways to change their looks. It's a constant battle that everyone on the Internet is fighting. Janglo and its moderators take no responsibility for any damages related to frauds of any sort.

To warn us of specific cases or individuals, please email us at fraud@janglo.net
