▪ Private sales are not regulated by consumer legislation as the latter only covers business-to-consumer transactions.

▪ Buyers of second hand goods from private sellers should ensure that any damages or faults that used products may have are pointed out to them.
▪ Buyers should request to see and inspect the item for sale before concluding the purchase.

▪ When payment is done online, buyers should use a secure payment service that offers the buyer protection.

▪ Too good to be true deals should not be trusted.
