• Make sure to inform the buyer of any defects in the item you are selling.
  • Use only simple payment methods that you trust and are familiar with, especially cash payments
  • In any case, do not send copies of your documents, personal data and most importantly financial information
  • Don’t deal with buyers who keep on constantly changing the meeting place or calling from different mobile numbers.
  • If you see the buyer waiting for you in his car and he wants to check the item, ask him kindly to get out of the car to check it outside; it is always better in a public place you have both chosen.
    • Always meet the seller at a safe location such as Metro stations, shopping malls, or any famous meeting point.
    • Don’t forget to inspect the item before purchasing it. Following this one rule will help you avoid most scams. This also applies to house rentals
    • Trust your guts and watch out for unrealistic offers. If it appears too good to be true, it probably is.
    • Avoid items that have suspiciously lower prices than what is offered in the market.
    • Don’t deal with buyers who insist on asking for your personal information such as your full name, age, bank account, etc.
    • Never send an advance partial or full payment, or use a debit card to pay someone you do not know before collecting your item
    • Remember, it is recommended to purchase items directly from the seller.
