Staying safe

Unfortunately, there are some scammers out there that target pre-owned marketplaces like ours, even the big marketplaces like Gumtree and Autotrader haven’t been able to completely stop scammers from using their websites.

Although they are frustrating and an inconvenience the good news is that they are normally easy to spot. The best way to protect yourself is to educate yourself about the common signs of a fake enquiry, so that if you are approached you will be able to spot the signs.

Signs of a potential scammer:

We want to reassure you, that we do everything we can to make our website as secure as possible. We have a registration process in place in order to deter those who are not genuine buyers from making an enquiry and unlike other marketplaces we do not give out your email address to buyers, as the first enquiry is always through our website.

We have a spam catcher and hidden spam checker in place, but we aren’t always aware that someone is not a genuine buyer until it is brought to our attention so we would encourage you to contact us if you think that someone is not genuine. 

We do assure you that the majority of our buyers are genuine archers who are looking to buy pre-owned archery equipment, so please remember:
