BUY & SELL safety

RCMP DETACHMENTS PROVINCE WIDE offer their parking lots for Buy & Sell exchanges…

BC RCMP state that they don’t always have signage up, but every person is welcome to use the area in front of any detachment as a safer trading and meeting spot for buy and sell purchases. Here are some precautions when engaging in the ‘switches’:
– Meet in a public place with many people around
– Refrain from using remote locations or your home for any exchange
– If possible, bring a friend or a family member
– When buying or selling, meet in person to thoroughly inspect the product before exchanging funds
– Keep things local and in cash. Don’t use cheques or money-wiring services
– Only bring enough cash with you to pay for the item purchased
– Do not give out personal or banking information (such as a social insurance number, bank account number or address) over the internet.
