4.)  Product ads trying to sell stolen goods at low prices. When in doubt ask the owner to provide documents which shows proof of purchase (like bill, warranty card).
5.)  Product ads trying to sell cheap, fake and imitation products as original. Apply the most simple rule – “If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is suspicious”
6.)  Meet a Supplier to Office, Shop or Public places: While buying or selling through SastoBazaar, it is most likely that you will be meeting a stranger. It is advisable to learn as much as you can about the person whom you are meeting or trading with. Ask the person about his office, work place, profession, etc. If in doubt, ask the person to show his identification document like license official ID and citizenship.
7.)  For your personal safety, always meet buyer/seller in public places (office, shops, restaurant etc) where other people are present..

12.)  Be especially careful when buying/selling high value items: If you are looking to buy something expensive, we recommend that you first meet the seller to check the product. Once you are ready to purchase, either go to ATM or visit the bank to arrange for the cash.
