- be careful if the seller has registered only shortly, for he will be lacking sales references.
- check the seller's trustworthiness?
- does the seller own a shop, office or any other physical contact address, which really exists and where he can be reached?
- should you trust a seller who is putting up the pressure in order to speed up your payment?
- what do you really know about this person?
