First, I would like to thank everyone here for being wonderfully loyal members. We appreciate each and every one of you, you’ve made SWAPD what it is today. However, as our popularity rises, so do the scam attempts on our website. Our current methods of verifications (mainly the ID verifications) are becoming less reliable. People are able to obtain photos of ID’s from random strangers quite easily, and they then pass these documents to us. This is becoming problematic, that is why we’re increasing security by making the vetting process more difficult for scammers.
BECOME DNA VERIFIED!
Don’t laugh, we know it’s a silly name. But it’s actually what we’re doing here. Starting next Monday, all active buyers/sellers will have to become DNA verified.
How do I get DNA verified?
- Contact @SWAPD and ask for DNA Verifications.
- Provide your mailing address, we will send you a home-testing kit.
- Take a swab and scrape the inside of your cheek, as seen in the image below:
- Mail the sample back to our business address.
- Wait 2-3 weeks for approval.
We have partnered with https://www.myheritage.com, and they will process and verify your information. Upon completion, they send us a report of your origins (ancestry). If it matches your current IP and ID address, you will become DNA Verified.
This is a mandatory verification for all active buyers/sellers. If you do not send in your samples by April 30th, 2019, we will terminate your SWAPD account.
One last thing, due to the costs (DNA reports aren’t cheap), we will deduct -59 USD from your SWAPD Rewards Balance.
I’d like to thank you all for understanding. Keeping the community safe is our top priority, and we will do our best to weed out any scammers. We will issue another update when we’re ready to ship up the kits.
