Use Escrow Service To Avoid Payment Scam/fraud 

I came across this article recently and thought it might be beneficial to readers when paying for agricultural equipment or deals. 

Ecommerce in Nigeria, estimated at $13 billion by the London based Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), is a vital sector that, if properly harnessed, can create more means of livelihood for individuals and massive jobs for youths, enhance Market Access and sales for SME’s, boost economic development, reduce poverty and help in achieving some other Sustainable Development Goals.

Unfortunately, the progress of ecommerce in Nigeria is being hampered by several factors, one of which is distrust caused by the activities of fraudsters and scammers who pose online as genuine sellers or buyers.

It is very common to have situations where buyers pay for agricultural equipment or deals only to wake up to the realization that they have been scammed.

Same applies to unsuspecting sellers who sell their agricultural equipment or deals and end up either incurring losses or getting out rightly defrauded.

To solve the mistrust between buyers and sellers and to drastically reduce incidences of online fraud, escrow payment arrangements by EscrowLock have proved beneficial.


Escrow payments are such that a buyer, instead of paying to the seller directly, agrees to an arrangement with the seller and pays the money to a mutually trusted third party (escrow company/agency like EscrowLock) who holds the money and releases it to the seller when it has been confirmed that the buyer has received the property.


EscrowLock escrow payment can be used for the purchase of virtually any kind of product/service.
Be it physical products like a pair of shoes, piece of furniture, electronics, car, land, agricultural equipment, real estate, etc.

Or virtual products like software, ebooks, digital images, music files, secret keys/access codes.

Or even services like hiring someone to do web design, create music/video/graphic content, etc.

As fraudsters generally shy away from escrow arrangements, it has been shown that insisting on escrow payment is one effective way to know if a seller is genuine.

For a small fee, usually not more than 5 per cent of the transaction value, trusted online escrow companies like EscrowLock can be engaged to protect both the buyer and seller and help boost ecommerce in Nigeria.

However, care must be taken to only use online escrow services that are certified by the International Financial and Escrow Services Accreditation Board.

That is the official body that not only regulates against fake online escrow services but provides $200 million insurance access to clients of certified escrow companies.
