Useful Safety Tips

We advise that you follow the below mentioned simple steps for a safe and successful buying/selling experience:

  • Try to meet face to face with the buyer/seller in your city to exchange items and money at the same time. Never send items upfront in advance of receiving payment.
  • 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.
  • For your personal safety, meet in well lit public places and always take someone with you, or at least tell a friend where you are going.
  • If something sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't true!
  • Try to report Ads that you think are posted to trick or cheat people.
  • Avoid scams by acting locally or paying with PayPal
  • Never pay with Western Union, Moneygram or other anonymous payment services
  • Don't buy or sell outside of your country. Don't accept cashier cheques from outside your country
