Most individuals who use Used Music Gear Marketplace have successful and smooth experiences. However here may be people out there who will try to take advantage of you.

We’ve included the shopping tips below. By taking just a few reasonable precautions, you can make sure you’re always shopping safely.

  • Use common sense. If something sounds too good to be true- it probably is.
  • Verify the seller’s address, business address, and phone numbers and ask questions referencing to the product they are selling.
  • When buying or selling, you should meet in-person to inspect the product carefully and then exchange funds. Meet in a public place with many people around.
  • If the seller has no reviews, ask the seller for references from previous transactions.
  • Do not give out personal or banking information (e.g. social insurance number, bank account number) over the Internet.
  • Don’t agree to buy something unless you are absolutely certain that you want the item.
  • Be wary of emails asking you to confirm your account or a password or email address change that was not requested.
  • Inform us of any attempted fraud or suspicious emails, or listings. In the case of fraud, file a police report.
