So I am after an Amazon gift card but I am unsure how to actually check which gift cards are actually legit!!
I actually bought a gift card then the seller want me to be “online” when they send the code to me. This alarmed me and I then ask a valid question as to why they needed me to be online as I would have imagine that the code would have been given to them ? They then sent me a rather rude message and canceled the transaction which I thought was quite odd - and is probably a blessing!
Ended up searching on google about gameflip’s gift cards and it seems that there are a lot of scammers whereby they will sell you an illegal giftcard which loads the money fine only to get a chargeback applied on thier account a few months in some cases (over 3 months!) down the line.
Anyway, is there a way to actually identify LEGIT sellers ? I assume the sellers who have older accounts (say over 1 year old) would be less likely to scam ?
Are buyers allowed to put followup feedback/ comments on thier page should the card turn out to be scams a few months down the line ? If they can’t it would likely explain why the scammers have ++ feedback as the feedbacks cannot be revised.
I mean I just registered a few days ago and loaded up a few hundred dollars but it doesn’t instill a lot of confidence on this platform. There seems to be more scammers than genuine sellers! This might be why gameflip does not allow money to be withdrawn once deposited just so that we are “tied up” here!
Would a 10 - 15% discounted amazon voucher ring alarm bells to you guys ? And UK and EU gift cards are less likely to be scams I assume ?
Any inputs/ advice would be appreciated.
