Delhi Police has also raised its voice against this, tweeting and informing potential buyers to consider a few points before buying a second-hand smartphone.
Delhi Police has mentioned three things to take care before buying a second-hand smartphone via a tweet on March:
- Be warned if someone is in an immense hurry to sell the second-hand smartphone. The phone could be a stolen one and may land you in trouble.
- Be warned if the seller is pressurizing you for a cash payment, which means no online record of the transaction.
- Be warned if the seller wants you to pay using a QR code. This means that the buyer won’t know to whom it is being paid.
It is notably mentioned here, that while several users buy second-hand smartphones from apps like OLX, Quickr and more, it is always not the case that the seller is a genuine one. So, it is always advisable to meet the person, take a look at the product and then buy, if in the same city.
