Safety Tips for Buyers and Sellers


Meet seller at a safe location, check the item before you buy pay only after collecting item, meet only during the day and in a open place.


Always meet the Buyer/Seller at a safe location and inspect the item before purchasing. Following this one rule will help you avoid most scams. This is also true for house rentals.


Before purchase you should verify the item you intend buying before making payment to avoid being scammed (Cash On Delivery) sales is more preferable


Watch out for unrealistic offers. If it appears too good to be true, it probably is. Unrealistic offers are used to motivate purchasers to make hasty decisions.


The best way to transact is to collect the item and pay at the same time. Never transfer funds or use a debit card to pay someone you do not know before collecting an item. Ask for clear information on condition of the item, price, payment and delivery method.


It is recommended to purchase items directly from the seller. In case of electronic goods, cars, and bikes you should test the functioning of the item before purchase.


Verify vehicle chassis number.
