How to save yourself from scam while exchanging online?

Caution: Do not get scammed

This happens to all of us, that when we buy new products we like to dispose off or sell out all the used and old products. So that in return we can get some money for them. And for that we start visiting open markets where we can sell our used products. But it is not always possible for every one of us to bring the products along and visit the market for the purpose of selling. And even the nature of some products is not as such that you could take them along with you in open market. That is why now a day’s many of us prefer to sell our used products online with a lot of ease and convenience. And many of us considering the fact the prices of everything are going very high we prefer to buy good deals online. That is why there are so many websites available where we can put our free ad and get so many reviews and offers for our ad and can easily sell to the people who need those items. But this is not as easy as it sounds. Both for sellers and for buyers. The world is full of scams. And before buying of selling new or used items online there are several things you should know about.

Things that a seller should consider
First thing that seller should do is that he should not accept any sort of online deposit or online cash delivery. The cash delivery for the product must be physical or in other cases do not send off the product until of unless you receive the cash. And in no situation accept cheque or any other monetary tool other than cash. Because so many times it happens that people deal with fraudulent cheque and when they bounce in banks you will have no one to claim. Then while you buy and sell online new or used home appliances, Gaming devices, or anything in that matter the meeting plays a very crucial part. Never meet the buyer in any unorthodox place or a place where you can be unsafe or have the least protection. Preferably such deals should be closed in seller’s residence or someplace where the seller has protection. Because in so many cases it happens that fake buyers snatch the product from seller with inappropriate ways.

Things that a buyer should consider
And if you are a buyer you should be conscious about the products condition. And in any case do not pay for the product until or unless you examine it by yourself. And make sure that you are buying which you have seen online. E.g. if you want to buy a Home appliances, do examine its condition by visiting the seller. And do not give the cash until of unless you are hundred percent satisfied with the product and its condition. Usually the buyer is suppose to be the one to visit the seller and in most cases with liquid cash in hand. So always make sure that you have enough protection or company with you which can help you out in any type of uncertainty. And in best case scenario keep the plastic money with you not the liquid cash. The best way to save you from any kind of further uncertainties related to product or anything else is that there should be an agreement signed between both of them. And this should include the complete names and information of both buyer and seller. The complete specification of the product and the condition of the product and the price of the product. And both buyer and seller should have consent on each and every clause of the agreement.
