Inspect Parts Before You Pay: Once the parts reach you inspect them and any paperwork before signing for the goods with the courier that is present and always insist on an invoice or collection note or tracking number.
Meet in Public: If you are buying from a stranger, always meet to exchange money and goods in a busy public place. If you feel uneasy about the person that you are meeting, meet outside a police station if you are carrying a substantial amount of cash and take a friend to accompany you.
Don’t hand over the spares: Make the buyer come to your vehicle or 'to you' to inspect the goods, and, don’t let him go to the car with items in hand if they haven’t paid you cash for them yet. Always dictate the terms and conditions.
Question the Sale or Purchase: Don’t be afraid to ask obvious questions. Ask the seller why they he is selling the item/s and about the condition and where the parts originate from. For the sellers of goods, don’t be afraid to ask buyers the same obvious questions related to the type of parts being bought or sold. If something sounds unrealistic it is more than likely unrealistic. If you are the buyer or the seller, you can always back out of a transaction before any money is exchanged and move on.
Know What You are Buying: Research the item you are planning on buying so that you understand and know exactly what you are actually getting when you pay. Make a drawing and take a picture saved on your smart phone for reference or even better take the sample with you. Research the parts on the internet.

If you are buying or selling something, you can protect yourself by providing correct and detailed information about the part. Accurate information is the key to success here.
