Safe Exchange Parking Lot

Making Online Transactions In-Person Safe
Posted: February 16, 2021, 1:00 p.m.

Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff Station has a Safe Exchange Zone in the east side of their parking lot. If you are making a private party transaction through eBay, OfferUp, Facebook Marketplace, or other sites, you can use the parking lot to safely conduct your exchanges.

Here are a few safety reminders you should also keep in mind when buying/selling online.

1. Always meet in a public place (such as Police/Sheriff Station) 2., Never go to an exchange alone, always bring backup.
3. Only bring enough money for the purchase.
4. Try the product first, before buying.
5. Get proof of the purchase (written document/receipt).
6. Do not give out your personal information.
7. Always trust your gut, if something seems off it probably is. Please remember, when utilizing Malibu/Lost Hills Station’s Safe Exchange Zone, deputies cannot act as official witnesses for the transactions. They will not provide legal advice, or settle any civil disputes.
