Hello, Jfref forums.

We are localgaijin.jp.

What is LocalGaijin?

LocalGaijin is working to connect local talents, skilled individuals, and many kinds of service providers to people who need them! We strive to provide the safest and most trustful platform for people to locally advertise and find useful talents in your area or even online service like Skype English lessons.

LocalGaijin acts as a middleman to protect you from scams and false advertisement.

-Service providers

You are able to create your listings and build your reputation.
Once a person purchase your service, you will be notified by us.
Once your service is completed, we forward your sales to your Paypal or Japanese bank.
You can also share your listings on your social media and advertise your service!

-Customers
LocalGaijin.jp works as a middleman for you.
We implemented PayPal and Stripe(Credit card) as payment methods.
Once you make a payment, the funds go to us first. We hold your payment until the service is completed.
In case the person does not or cannot provide the service, we forward the funds back to you.


We just launched and we would love to hear questions, request and suggestions from you guys.
Please post here or email us to admin@localgaijin.jp

Thank you very much for your time.

I looked at your website. It very strongly gives the impression that you guys are the scam and false advertisement.

Every one of the advertisements was obviously from the same person.

The "I can move" one is not only obviously fake, it is illegal.

-We have no intention to be a scam.

-Sorry those are test accounts made by 2 people that we used in beta. We pretty much launched today.
Just because the system works is:

1.Send request→2.The provider MUST accept it→3.Then finally payment form appears.(Until this happens, there is no way that you can make a payment.

we thought that as long as we do not accept any offer, it would be OK not to delete them. But it is completely our mistake that we have not deleted those accounts. We will delete them all soon as soon as possible. Thanks for pointing it out though.


We understand that it will take long time to be trusted but we will never scam you.
If we wanted to scam you, we would not make that "obviously fake" ads and probably would not create "must be accepted by a provider" step.

But again, thank you for letting us know.

The "I can move" one is not only obviously fake, it is illegal.

-Will be deleted.

You made the mistake of using a truck photo that was very obviously stolen from a business specializing in selling old trucks overseas. The truck in the background has no license plate. And the trucking/transportation industry in Japan is highly regulated, by the way.

We did not even realize that. And it will be deleted soon. Thank you for your feedback.

But you registered the domain almost a year ago, right?

Yes, we had a landing page on the domain for a while. We took a lot of time to test and fix bugs and make sure PayPal and stripe work perfectly with our system.
