There are a number of things you can and should do to ensure you don't get taken advantage of when buying and selling items on KSL.com.
Always be vigilant for scams (especially those claiming to be from or originating overseas)
Always ask for paperwork (i.e. registration, warranty info, title, etc.) to verify the seller's claims
Always verify the item's condition before payment
Have an expert examine the item before you buy
Always print a copy of the KSL.com classified ad for your records
Make sure the terms of the sale are clear
Create a simple contract and accompany the seller to notarize and validate the transaction
Meet the seller in person in an open and public location
Be cautious of anyone who refuses to communicate on the telephone
When buying a vehicle, have the seller accompany you with the title to the DMV (if they refuse...red flag)
Call the DMV and ask the agent if the seller owns the car and is able to sell it (800-DMV-Utah)
Be honest about your expectations
Most importantly, if something seems out of the ordinary or inconsistent - take precautions to protect yourself.
