3. Pay Smart!

Auctions on Behindwoods.com can offer a range of payment methods with varying levels of protection. Always apply the same common sense to online transactions that you do offline.

Credit cards with chargeback facilities add security. Chargeback facilities allow customers to receive a refund in the event of a fraudulent transaction or if they do not receive the service they paid for. It is important that you check with your credit card provider as to whether a chargeback facility is available for your card and if so, the level of protection provided.

It is very rare that something goes wrong with a transaction, but if it does, there are several options available to you:

Remember that your credit card provider or shipping insurance can help to recover funds lost in a transaction. Make sure you understand the policies of the payment provider you are using and the time frame in which you can file a claim.

You can also be assured that Behindwoods.com assists law enforcement officials in their investigations of any suspected criminal activity when appropriate.


Exercise caution when receiving communications from outside Behindwoods.com.

Select a secure password that is a combination of letters and numbers to protect your account information - never choose an obvious word such as 'password', your email address, your name, your family's names or birth dates.

If you receive a request to update your personal information and you do not feel comfortable about the source of the email, do not click on links in the email - simply open a new browser, type www.market.behindwoods.com, sign-in and use the Site Map to navigate the site.

Watch out for "spoof" emails. A spoof email may appear as though it has come from a trusted company (including www.behindwoods.com) - if in doubt, do not click on links from emails.

Exercise caution if an email requests personal information such as credit card details or passwords. In the same way that you never tell anyone, even the bank teller, your PIN number, you should always protect your private information, including passwords.

Regularly check your account and preferences to make sure there is no unauthorized activity.
