uShip has a Trust & Safety team that is dedicated to keeping fraudulent members off the site and to assisting users with disputes should they arise. While we have several systems in place to detect and prevent fraudulent activity, the uShip marketplace is not immune to scams. That’s why we created 24/7 fraud detection; and when it does occur, our dedicated Fraud Prevention and Customer Service teams work closely with law enforcement and assist with investigations. Plus, with our “Ship with Confidence” guarantee, we stand behind every transaction on the site, up to $500, when guidelines are followed.
