We’ve got an important message to everyone on here on VivaSpice so we’d appreciate if you have a few minutes to read it.
Some of you remember or not, there was a woman named AnnA from the message boards such as the official Melanie C message boards claimed that she had some Spice Girls items to swap and people were sending it to her and they never got it back from her and people were left disappointed! So we don't want this happen again!
A lot of people are willing to exchange their Spice memorabilia, which is great and most of the it happens without a problem, but it is open to abuse by people who want to rip you off. So, if you are thinking of exchanging or buying items off people online, then please bear in mind the following:
1. Never ever give out your bank or credit card details to ANYONE, no matter how well you think you know them. Credit card fraud is the one of the biggest causes of internet-related crime, and the rate at which it is increasing is staggering.
2. It is only safe to use your credit card on legitimate online shops such as Amazon and eBay; if any other sites are not well known ask for your details then make sure that they have a secure, recognizable payment method such as PayPal. Payment like Money Gram won’t give you a refund.
3. If you are going to buy or swap from the person, make sure that the person you are buying or swapping from is reliable. Same goes with the seller.
4. When the person is selling the items, make sure they have descriptions of the items and photos. There are scammers out there that used stolen photos from the web pages.
5. Please bear in mind that there are pedophiles preys on young children gaining their trusts or pretending to be their friends and I’m sure it’d happens again. If you are under the age of 16, you must get the permission from your parents or guardians before you give out your address to anyone.
6. Make sure the person you are swapping with have the history of keeping their promises. This is important, if they can’t be keeping promises you’ll easily be ripped off and left disappointed!
7. If you have any problems, please let admins/mods team know! Sometimes we can’t help you on some problems.
Happy shopping everyone!
