Safety: Meeting with the other part


We suggest to always meet with the seller/buyer in a public place (such as a shopping mall or main center).

We do not know the person you are meeting, so be careful.

Be careful if:-

  1.  The buyer decides to pay using a cheque this could bounce thus you end up with no money and you already released your item.
  2. The buyer purports to visit a nearest ATM in mall to withdraw cash to pay for the item you are selling.
  3. The buyer changes the meeting venue and asks you to leave your item behind to go and collect the cash.
  4. The buyer insists on paying via mobile money transfer-before releasing the item make sure the amount send can be withdrawn.
  5. The seller does not want you to test the item you are purchasing especially mobile phones and electronics
  6. The seller asks for a deposit especially for houses even before you view it. ( If the seller claims the house is on demand and has more than one tenants looking for the same house and  insists on making deposit report the matter to us.)

If meeting in person is absolutely necessary…

  • Avoid locations that you are unfamiliar with.
  • Agree to meet in a public place with heavy pedestrian traffic flow.
  • Avoid going alone.
  • Tell someone where you’re going and when you should be back.
  • Once at the location, survey the area before you meet.
  • If things don’t “look or feel” right then leave.
  • Trust your instincts! Once at the location don’t agree to go to another location, it could be a setup.

Always verify the item before and after paying for it.
