It is always better to buy products listed by people in your area or location. Try to arrange for a public location to see the seller. Do not arrange to see the seller or buyer in a hidden location for security purposes.
Never pay before seeing what you want to buy
Use commonsense, if a product seems too cheap or too good to be true, do not continue talking with the seller. Do not continue with the transaction.
Do not give out your banking or financial information to a person you do not know. It can be very risky. Your financial information can be used by unscrupulous people to defraud you.
