- Do not send any money to anyone via tahweel raseed or otherwise unless you are 100% sure of them and what they are selling.
- Be careful of badly written adverts. The presence of linguistic and spelling errors are usually a strong indicator that the advertiser is not Sudanese. He/She may have used an online translator. You must be wary of these ads because they may be posted by foreign scammers. Always call the alsoug.com helpline and check with our team first if you are in doubt.
