What can I do to avoid scammers?

Verify the supplier's identity

While "Checked" and "Verified" in OKCHEM are not guarantees of safety, they increase the chances of a safe trading experience. Please take extra care trading with suppliers with neither "Checked" nor "Verified" logo, as they haven't been verified in any way by OKCHEM. Suppliers with "Checked" logo mean that they have been checked by OKCHEM and suppliers with "Verified" logo mean that their business license have been checked by OKCHEM.

Careful communication

Check the inquiries or quotations you receive match the suppliers who reply. Be sure you are dealing with the same supplier - check their company information matches the company you contacted.

Use all prudence you may use to check a supplier's validity offline
