Meeting Safely Tips

How to Meet Safely

Meeting other Equine or Livery owners is exciting, but you should always be cautious when interacting with someone you don’t know.  Use your best judgment and put your safety first, whether you are exchanging initial messages or meeting in person. While you can’t control the actions of others, there are things you can do to help you stay safe whilst using AMAZINGRAZING LTD.

Online Safety

  • Never Send Money or Share Financial Information

Never send money, especially over wire transfer, even if the person claims to be in an emergency. Wiring money is like sending cash — it’s nearly impossible to reverse the transaction or trace where the money went. Never share information that could be used to access your financial accounts. If another user asks you for money, report it to us immediately.

  • Protect Your Personal Information

Never share personal information, such as your national insurance number, home or work address, or details about your daily routine (e.g., that you go to a certain gym every Monday) with people you don’t know. If you are a parent, limit the information that you share about your children on your profile. 

  • Stay on the Platform

Keep conversations on the AMAZINGRAZING LTD. platform while you’re getting to know someone. Users with bad intentions often try to move the conversation to text, messaging apps, email, or phone right away.

  • Be Wary of Long Distance and Overseas users

Watch out for scammers who claim to be from your country but are actually somewhere else, especially if they ask for financial help to return home. Be wary of anyone who will not meet in person or talk on a phone/video call—they may not be who they say they are.  If someone is avoiding your questions or wanting to meet up without getting to know you first — that’s a red flag.

  • Report All Suspicious and Offensive Behavior

You know when someone’s crossed the line and when they do, we want to know about it. Block and Report anyone that violates our terms. Here are some examples of violations:

  • Requests for money or donations,
  • Underage users,
  • Harassment, threats, and offensive messages,
  • Inappropriate or harmful behavior during or after meeting in person,
  • Fraudulent profiles,
  • Spam or solicitation including links to commercial websites or attempts to sell products or services.

You can report any concerns about suspicious behavior from any profile page or to webmaster@amazingrazing.co.uk.

  • Protect Your Account

Be sure to pick a strong password, and always be careful when logging into your account from a public or shared computer. AMAZINGRAZING LTD. will never send you an email asking for your username and password information — if you receive an email asking for account information, report it immediately.

Meeting in Person

  • Don’t Be In A Rush

Take your time and get to know the other person before agreeing to meet or chat off AMAZINGRAZING LTD. Don’t be afraid to ask questions to screen for any red flags or personal deal breakers. A phone or video call can be a useful screening tool before meeting.

  • Meet in Public and Stay in Public

Meet for the first few times in a populated, public place — never at your home, their home, or any other private location. If the other party pressures you to go to a private location, end the meeting.

  • Tell Friends and Family About Your Plans

Tell a friend or family member of your plans, including when and where you’re going. Have your mobile phone charged and with you at all times.

  • Be in Control of Your Transportation

We want you to be in control of how you get to and from your meeting so that you can leave whenever you want. If you’re driving yourself, it’s a good idea to have a backup plan such as a ride-share app or a friend to pick you up.

  • If You Feel Uncomfortable, Leave

It’s okay to end the meeting early if you’re feeling uncomfortable. In fact, it’s encouraged. And if your instincts are telling you something is off or you feel unsafe, leave.
