Tips to protect yourself during a buy and sell exchange

  • Complete your transaction during daytime hours only.
  • Use the buddy system when possible. Bring a family or friend with you, or at the very least, let someone know who you will be meeting, the time, and the location of the exchange.
  • To reduce the potential of falling victim to fraud, never complete a buy and sell transaction by mail.
  • When meeting in person, always inspect goods you wish to purchase before giving money to the seller.
  • Limit the amount of personal information you provide.
  • Stop. Pause. Think. If something seems too good to be true, it likely is.

Please be advised that police officers will not mediate private transactions, documentation or witness the transaction.
The area is monitored by video.
To report a criminal matter that occurs during a transaction, please call Hamilton Police or attend a station.
