However, there are also many unresponsible parties who abuse the ease of using GoPay. To make your transactions always safe, be a smart user by always being vigilant and file suspicious activities.
Let’s learn some of the following GoPay or Gojek scam schemes, so you will be able to prevent them!

Beware of online payment scams that use MAGIS ("Manipulasi Psikologis" or "Psychological Manipulation"). Usually, scammers disguise themselves as sellers who sell things cheaper than the market. They also often change their social media usernames.
Before buying anything (clothes, accessories, app purchases, games top-up, etc), don’t forget to always be vigilant! Always double check the third party that uses GoPay as a payment method. Trace sellers’ tracks and reputation to avoid things that you don’t desire.
To buy applications or top up games, you can choose partners who are officially collaborating with GoPay, such as Google Play, Codashop, UniPin, MPL, and Wawa Games. You can check the promo information here.
