How to Stay Safe Online


While most members of UK-OK will have good experiences, it’s important for you to know how to stay safe on our site.

Understand the market for your item

It’s important to understand what the average cost of the item you’re looking for is compared to the listing you are viewing
Our rule of thumb is … if it’s too good to be true, it probably is.

Don't give out personal details

When dealing with individuals online, we recommend never giving out any personal details, like you bank account number, unless you’re 100% certain your are dealing with reputable company.

Our advise is to use either cash or a company like PayPal to transfer cash. 

Where to meet

We recommend meeting in a public place if you have agreed to exchange items for cash. Somewhere like a cafe. Don’t be afraid to walk away if the item does not meet the description online
