Buy a Localbitcoins account
The Internet often offers to buy and sell a Localbitcoins account. However, we strongly recommend not to take such offers:
- firstly, buying a Localbitcoins account is not safe at all, as in the future your funds can be accessed by the past owner of the account;
- secondly, it is not possible to buy Localbitcoins account for a low price;
- thirdly, you can get banned by the administration, and in the case of controversial issues, you will have difficulty proving your case.
