Two Chilean marketplaces have joined forces to fight fraud.

Frontier Digital Ventures (FDV)-owned horizontal and CarSales-run auto vertical ChileAutos launched a campaign to avoid scams in marketplace transactions.

The move follows a similar initiative by Brazilian marketplaces ICarros, MercadoLivre, and OLX-Brazil. ICarros is owned by Itaú bank. MercadoLivre is the Brazilian subsidiary of Nasdaq-listed ecommerce and classifieds site MercadoLibre. OLX-Brazil is the leading horizontal owned by Prosus and Adevinta.

Like its Brazilian peers, and ChileAutos shared tips on how to avoid scams and guarantee safe transactions.

The marketplaces warned users of scammers pretending to represent either marketplace by asking for WhatsApp codes and email passwords.
