Follow these simple steps for a safe and successful buying experience:
Keep things local by meeting face to face to see the item and exchange money. Make sure you are completely happy with the item before handing over any money. Although we do not recommend paying for an item you haven't seen, if you are planning to do this, please use a secure payment method.
For your personal safety, meet in a well lit public place and always take someone with you, or at least tell a friend where you are going.
Never carry large sums of money with you. If you are looking to buy something expensive, we recommend that you meet with the seller to view the item first. If you are happy to then proceed with the purchase, either go to the bank with the seller to make the payment or arrange to meet somewhere safe with the money.
Be aware of our warning signs of top scams, and if in doubt about a seller either contact us for advice or don't proceed.
Use your common sense. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
