Since Perfect Money (PM) is a digital currency, Where to Buy Perfect Money in Nigeria?
To buy Perfect Money (PM), you can do this through the help of a Perfect Money Exchanger in Nigeria. It is not difficult to locate a PM exchanger in Nigeria, because a good percentage of those that trade bitcoin also trade Perfect Money.
So it would be an easy search if you visit a bitcoin exchangers shop and check if they also sell perfect money (PM). Against the odds, I am 80% sure that you should be able to get a positive answer.
You will need to do a naira bank transfer to the exchanger in order to buy PM from the PM exchanger shop business account.
Just like I have said, the major concern is not finding a Perfect Money exchanger, but its finding the right and best fit for you.
Be careful of fraudsters that claim to be a PM exchanger while they are not.
PM does not seem to have a clear place where they evolved from which it means it might be a bit difficult to get your money refunded back, if the exchanger absconds with your money.
And a legal suit will likely be helpless in this case, there is nothing worthy of a legal proof in cases like this.
So before selecting the right PM exchanger, you need to be smart. You need to be sure that the
Perfect Money exchanger you want to work with has been in existence for long.
If it has been in existence for long, then you would know that he might not want to put his business on a risk by absconding with your money.
But if he recently just started, there is a possibility that he is only looking for people scam and close-up the shop.
And in that case, only few people or nearly no one will have his contact in that community. Because he just recently started.
Another thing you need to look into is whether the Perfect Money exchanger shop is registered under the CAC.
If it is registered under the CAC, then you can rest assured that it is a legitimate business.
And another thing is that it would be easier to locate the business owner atleast.
A non-registered PM exchanger should be a warning sign to you that its is dangerous to trade with business owners like that.
Remember in business, you need to know who you are trading with in order to have the best deal with that person.
Nowadays, many of the digital currency exchangers now have their business hub and activities being done on the internet.
So if you are planning to carry out all your business on the internet, then you must have taught about using any of the PM exchangers online.
Since they have websites where you can buy your PM currency, then you need to confirm if those sites are legit or not.
You can do this by searching for people who have used the website before on popular forums in your Nigeria. As for Nigerians, the best forum ever for things like this is Nairaland.
So searching Nairaland for people who have used the website before and asking about their experience.
But be warned that, if its only one person that has been writing positive reviews of the site; stay away from them. That one person could be the owner of the company you are talking about.
