Buying Advice: Buyer Beware

Buyer Beware

When buying privately, it is unlikely that you will have the security of legal advice, solicitors, agents etc. to protect the transaction and moreover, your money. The process of buying or selling privately is usually straightforward but both buyers and sellers can leave themselves open to becoming the victim of fraud or other crimes. Be careful not to let the excitement of buying or selling an item compromise your safety or your money. And remember, if it looks too good to be true, it usually is.

Don't part with any money until you have either received the goods (or service), or are absolutely sure of the legitimacy of the seller.
