Scammers have become very inventive about how they scam people and will contact someone who has a dress for sale and ask for lots of pictures. Then they turn around and create a fake listing using the other person’s images. If you have any suspicion that this has happened, ask the “seller” to send you a picture of themselves in street clothes so that you can compare it to the images of them in their wedding dress. An honest seller won’t mind – a scammer will make up a reason they can’t do it.
When purchasing your used designer gown through Once Wed, there are some key questions for you to ask when you’re starting a transaction with a seller. These are designed to protect you as a buyer as well as get you more information regarding the condition and sizing of the dress.
