Your Circle of Facebook Friends
Among the few keys to avoid getting scammed in any way possible when it comes to buying pre-owned computers online is knowing who sells them. And what better way to be sure is among your circle of friends on Facebook instead?
You can ask around who knows who sells their computers by putting it up to your wall or stories for everyone to see, or ask your close friends who know a friend who may be selling computers at a reasonable price. This way, the seller is referred by someone you have a connection to.
When it comes down to buying second-handed computers on Facebook or elsewhere on the internet, a great deal of caution is never wrong. Always ask for more information on both the seller and the product you’re interested in buying. While prices needed to be posted in public, at the end of the day, PM is still the key.
