I found this out recently while trading p2p on Binance. Some accounts were barely 20 days old, Non verified and were able to make buy orders. What is surprising is that at the time I wanted to use their P2P last year, one of the prerequisites was to have the account first undergo KYC verification

Quote
Before you can make your first transaction on Binance P2P, you must register on Binance and complete your Identity Verification process. Our P2P merchants undergo a screening process where we also verify their identity and business. By verifying all Binance P2P users, we are able to provide a layer of security for your transactions.

But that's not the case. In fact, most of such accounts are owned by scammers

Here is an example. The account is labeled as regular user and the KYC tick is grayed out, meaning it's not verified.




How is this possible?

Is Binance selectively enforcing KYC verification on some users just to play cat and mouse game with regulators?

Same here actually I can't use their p2p before without a KYC process I tried to search and look for the announcement but I don't see any announcement that you can able to trade or sell on p2p without an intermediate account.

So it's impossible that there is someone who can sell or buy on P2P without KYC process even merchant account they won't be able to trade.

Why not try to report it on Binance and also ask them why there are some non-KYC users on their p2p service?



It seems it's allowed if you are a P2P merchant base on what I read from their blog post below and it seems that you found that guy unverified under ads? you can disable the ads under settings to make our trade safe.

So, it seems that you don't actually need to complete the traditional KYC to be a merchant, you just need to be "verified by the Binance P2P team" (whatever that means). The normal users do need to be KYC'ed.

The accounts making trade orders were actually market takers and not market makers. So obviously they were not merchants.

That's what their website says:

Traditional KYC is not of the prerequisites. It's actually stricter for merchants because they need additional information.

This is interesting and I'm curious to know what will Binance have to say about this. Did you reach out to Binance and raise this particular concern of yours?

For a long time, I wanted to use Binance's P2P. It has nice volume. The only thing that stops me from getting into it is their KYC requirement. And now I'm surprised to know there are actually P2P traders who are unverified.

But this is actually not the first time Binance says one thing and allows another.

I am a regular user of Binance p2p, not yet found this kind of user. Also, every time whenever I make a trade, I check all of the details of the seller/buyer to prevent the scam. I don't know, How this member doing P2P trade without KYC!

Reporting it to Binance team, I read some complaints from non-kyc users that they cant make internal conversions with other verified Binance accounts without verifying identity and thus impossible to continue using that service without an intermediate account.

Frankly, my account is still without verifying identity and I can use all services, but I have not experimented with the deposit of any amount since I pulled all my money serval weeks ago, but all these accounts will be suspended to withdrawal only by 19/10.

I did, but you know changes are not going to be made from just 1 complaint.

That's what am also wondering about. Everyone is supposed to be verified before using p2p according to their terms of service\

At least your account is one of those old ones, but this particular accounts are brand-new, some are 7 days old, meaning they were created after Binance announced that new users would first have to be verified before using all the services.

Makes absolutely zero sense and probably going to be shut down sooner or later.

The decisions were rushed though it could be plausible that they simply overlooked this aspect of their business since it's not part of their core exchange.

If you're uncomfortable with KYC just pull out of Binance... It's not worth the risk and the stress to have to deal with constantly changing advice.
