Safe Online Transaction Tips

  Remember the old saying, “If it looks and sounds to good to be true, it probably is".
  Know your Buyer or Seller’s identity.  Search public records and data bases and cross check.
  If you can meet the Seller in person, do so with safety in mind.
  Photos don’t always tell the whole story or validate the equipment or condition.
  Deals from outside of your country should be handled with additional caution.
  Pick your own escrow service after careful consideration and research.
  Fraud often involves wire transfers, overpayments and cashier checks.
  Using a professional Dealer/Broker when buying and selling can be a good investment.

Buyers Checklist

Know the true market value of the equipment you are buying.  Enlist publications such as
Aircraft Blue Book.

Inspect the equipment either through the use of a mechanic or inspection service prior to closing the deal.

Verify physical location of both the seller and the equipment being purchased.  Phone numbers, addresses, emails should match.

Always use secure communications for personal information such as, credit card numbers, bank account information. Email is not a secure medium for transmission.

If someone requests a money transfer as the only option for payment, be careful and investigate for the reason.
Always know the escrow service you are doing business with.  A lead from the seller might not be the best choice for the buyer.

“As is” or with warranty should be drafted into a sales agreement that states the sales price.  Always make sure you understand and have in your possession all of the legal documents necessary at the completion of your transaction.

Sellers Checklist

Buyers that are willing to purchase an expensive item sight unseen should demand extra attention in the sales process.  Verify all buyers information carefully and cross check with data bases.

In todays world of ultra sophisticated printers and software fake checks are hard to spot.  Verify with the issuing bank before depositing a certified check.

Don’t transfer the title until the funds agreed to are in hand.

If a buyer attempts to overpay the purchase price with a check and requests a refund be suspicious.
