‘Buyer beware’ is something we should all be familiar with. When making any transaction, consumers have a responsibility to take a reasonable amount of care. In these recessionary times, we have become more savvy when it comes to negotiating a good deal and this is by no means a bad thing. On the other hand, sometimes in our enthusiasm to grab to a bargain, common sense can go out the window.
As Daft.ie is a property portal, we do not deal with the properties directly. Therefore, if you are looking on the website for a property, it is crucial that you do your own checks to ensure that the property matches the description given in the ad. While 99.9% of the ads on Daft are trustworthy, unfortunately as with any internet site, there is a chance of scammers looking to take advantage. We have checks here in place to prevent scam ads from getting through and these are being continuously reviewed. However, scammers are constantly coming up with new tricks so a few ads may get through the net from time to time. However, if you use your head it will be almost impossible for you to get caught out.
