Are you tired of scammers and people not going through with their offers?
So am I, in an effort to minimize this current issue I’ve come up with this guide. First off, always make sure that you are not dealing with a scammer. If you are using discord, check if his profile says “New to Discord” this is usually a sign of a scammer. If you use Facebook, check his friends list, if it has less than 10 and/or made his account in the last 2-3 weeks this is also a possible alert that something is wrong. In case you are doing business on Ebay, check his reputation and when he made his account.

Okay, I’ve got a deal lined up, how do I continue?
Do you have a buyer lined up? If you have made sure that he is legit using the above steps then you are ready to make the transaction. To do this though, if it’s a large sum of Sweatcoins, we suggest using a middleman. A middleman is a person that will ensure the safety of the transaction, will receive the Sweatcoins, then tell the Buyer to send the PayPal/bank balance to the seller. Then, the middleman will proceed by sending the PayPal/bank balance. It is very important to make sure the middleman is a trusted & reputable member of the community that you both agree on, don’t trust a random person and apply the same steps above to this person, as it could be the buyer’s duplicate account.
Where do I find a middleman? What’s the cost?
There are a lot of them available. For starters, you can join our blog’s Discord server and ask one of the Staff members to middleman the deal for you. Or, you can find a friend you have in common with the buyer and use him to make sure the safety of your transaction. Middlemen are usually free, but in some cases, where the amounts are really huge they might charge a 5% fee due to the risk being taken. Paid middlemen are more trustworthy because it’s their actual job to ensure this goes right, they aren’t just volunteers.
If you don’t want to trust an actual person with this deal, there’s a lot of websites that help both the buyer and the seller ensure a safe transaction. One of them is escrow.com, it makes sure both parties accept the terms of the agreement and it verifies they are both valid entities. But, services such as that one online take a higher fee usually and they only work with Bank accounts. They might take up to 15% fee and usually international bank wires take 20$ out of your total cost.
