Fraudsters advertise in classifieds media

Carl Holmquist

“A fraudster put out Johan’s apartment for rental at a large classified service” was the headline yesterday in Sweden’s largest newspaper Aftonbladet.

The classified service had troubles in tracking the fraudster since he/she used a temporary mail address in the advertisement. According to the police they receive about 30 similar cases a month.

Eniro has implemented the Freespee privacy protection service in their classified service. Hence, their advertisers receive privacy protection, but not by opening up for Fraud. Instead, that door is closed, forever. More Classified partners are about to be disclosed later on this year, which is good for the consumer. Our ambition is to remove fraud and uncertainty from Online sales.
