Safety Advice

Millions of people look to buy or sell using classified ads in Australia every month. It’s a great way to make a deal with a buyer or a seller directly, avoiding the fees often charged by middlemen. Most people are honest, and are only looking to make a fair trade but, as in any area of commerce and particularly when buyer and seller are connecting directly online, there is a risk of misunderstandings or encountering someone unscrupulous. For that reason, it’s important to take reasonable precautions.

Here are our guidelines for helping ensure a safe and positive experience when buying through classified advertisements.

Use common sense
It's important to use common sense when evaluating a deal. Many good deals abound on Adster but as a rule of thumb, if an offer seems too good to be true, then it probably is! If you get a feeling that something is not right, be extra careful. Investigate further, and never allow yourself to be pushed or rushed into taking any action.

Pay in person, or on receipt
Avoid paying in advance for goods, their reservation, or shipment. Pay strictly on receipt of goods. Be particularly wary of sellers who suddenly announce they need to ship the goods from a different location to the one originally advertised, and ask you to pay them or a transportation company in advance.

If you must pay in advance of receipt of goods, use only a reputable and trustworthy third party payment provider offering either payment protection arrangements or escrow arrangements (whereby the payment provider will hold your payment on the seller’s behalf until you have confirmed satisfactory receipt of goods).

Use safe and secure payment methods
Avoid using URLs or clicking on links in emails sent to you by the seller, such as links claiming to be third party payment providers, without first checking that the link goes to a genuine and reputable provider. A common tactic is to send a link that appears to be for a reputable site, but in fact harvests your login credentials, bank details or other personal information for improper use (so-called 'phishing').

Guard your personal information carefully
Your personal information - your name, address, telephone numbers, National Insurance number, date of birth, bank or bank card details, passport details, login credentials - are valuable and can easily be misused. Although the buyer and seller need to know who they are doing business with, and the seller may need to post the goods to the buyer, avoid giving more information than necessary, and never give out your bank or card details, National Insurance number, or date of birth, when buying.

Personal safety
When viewing goods or meeting a seller, if you have any concerns consider taking someone with you for your personal safety and a second opinion or at least let someone know where you are going. When possible, meet in a public place, in daylight, and avoid carrying large amounts of cash on your person.
