Venmo Scam

p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Venmo Scam


I remember some seller commenting recently that they prefered Venmo because it was better than PayPal and everyone should be using it... Not saying they were a scammer, but saw this article on DPR and thought it was worth passing along.

Basically, if you're too lazy to read, don't use Venmo, its TOS do not allow sale of goods / services and as a seller you have zero protection. If you get payment in a batch of multiple smaller amounts, run away.

Thanks for sharing. I have seen my daughter sending payment and receiving from family members of coarse small amount, but I haven't done any research.

Venmo is owned by PayPal.

And they've worked hard to keep that on the down-low.
