Questions and answers

1. Why doesn’t my ad appear on the site?

If your ads are considered by the team Africavenue as inappropriate they will be deleted without notice and will be therefore never visible by users.

Several reasons can cause the deleting of your Ads:

– Ads posted in the wrong category or area (we do not accept ads from outside Africa).

– Similar ads posted several times.

– Ads considered as spam / scam.

– Ads found irrelevant.

– Ads for illegal products / services  (drugs dealing, guns…)

– Ads displaying pornographic contents…

If you think there is an error, please contact the team through e-mail. Your ad could be recovered if there is evidence of error.

Africavenue pays great attention to the quality of ads published on the website and our credibility is our credo.

Thank you for your understanding.

2. How are the fraudulent ads detected ?

A moderator examines one by one each ad before publishing to make sure that they respect our charter. While publishing your listing, your IP address is automatically recorded by our system. This IP address allows to localize your computer and to know from which place you are connecting and to block automatically all your ads if necessary.

In addition to that, we rely on the community’s assistance a lot. Every Internet user do have the possibility to report a fraudulent ad that he may have detected on the site. Once the ad is reported, we take the measures and make a check up. If the fraud is turned out, the ad is immediately removed from the site.

    Kindly note that the Ad you deleted with your specific reason has already accepted by other sites and published globally.
    As a Free Advertiser I have to listen to your action.

    I don’t precisely know why my ad has been deleted from your site because I have posted this ad in more than 40 sites and they have been accepting it and its no scam as we are a registered company.

    But thank you for your assistance!

    its amazing because websites like these are the ones that advertise scam jobs,,,,,, and expose people to be victims when someone comes with relavent ads you delete them and say they are scams ,,,,spam,,,,if its posted on a wrong category why don’t you construct your website in a way that it will not allow people to post on a wrong category and prevent irrelevant stuff from being posted
