6. negotitate a safe payment terms such as COD or L/C unless you know your buyer or supplier in depth .

7.always request preshipment inspection before arranging balance payment

8. check the company's credit in some professional credit company

MORE TO BE ADDED

And NEVER pay by western union!!

It is almost always a scam if they suggest you pay by WU.
