I recommend meeting up because first it's more legit and more social, and if your transaction is far from you find a guy who is near you and stick to that transaction but if none. always check that guy if he is trusted or a friend of yours introduced him.
I often do deals with people in my city, I know that whenever evil can happen right ? let alone bitcoin is still illegal. ?I cannot report to the police if I lose money because of bitcoin?
so I always be careful when doing transactions with people that I don't know. I agree with the tips of the OP. at least you should do transaction in public dude. I always do that and never have a problem

The other threat to your safety while performing a local trade: 

United States Department of Homeland Security


"On Friday Feb 9, I was arrested in my home by Department Of Homeland Security over a #Bitcoin transaction from nov 2016 and am released under a personal recognizance bond. I am being charged with:
18 USC 1956 - Money Laundering Instrument"

https://twitter.com/NODEfather/status/963860385336999936

They also confiscated his devices in which he holds cryptocurrency funds.

As-of Feb 22nd, Morgan Rockcoons (aka, Morgan Rockwell, and on Twitter: @NODEfather, and @Metaballo) plead not guilty and got a 10 day extension to get legal representation.

It continues:

- https://en.bitnovosti.com/2018/02/23/man-was-tortured-all-night-in-moscow-before-he-handed-all-his-bitcoins-to-bandits

And will continue to happen:

"The trend of physical crypto asset robberies will accelerate if attackers have a decent success rate. Securing your assets not only helps you, it helps us all by deterring physical attackers from even trying."

I Heard about multiple gangs targeting bitcoin exchangers, sellers, and people who own a lot of bitcoin.
Be aware of the fake 500 euro notes trick, that's going on in Europe. and be aware of who you deal with, because if the wrong people have the knowledge of you owning a lot of bitcoin or any crypto, they can easily trace you.

Shitty that these things are happening, my personal opinion for the safest way with local transactions would still be bank transfer, and use ESCROW until funds or bitcoins are released.
Over the counter trading with a registered company, or with someone from a known group.

How could you say that you recommend meet ups when we are talking about the cryptocurrency or the DIGITAL currency. Isn't it obvious that its purpose is for convenience of those who are having the transaction? I believe bitcoin has enough safety measures to assist and support the traders who will be having a transaction. THough, there is always a risk at everything.

This is very helpful information, thank you.  I am very concerned about trading Bitcoin without some kind of escrow protection.  Do you recommend any good online escrow services for buying or selling Bitcoin?     Thanks!

If possible meet up is the best way to do  when buying btc or whatever transaction it is. Or else if buyer is too far from the seller,  check if the seller has a group chat/page. Then look at his/her proofs with  posting a receipt every after dealing btc or any kind of coins.

This is so informative. Thank you for making this thread. This serves as guidelines in transacting with other people especially for trading purposes. I appreciated much about meeting in publoc areas or with cctv cameras. It's really opt to be in the said places for security purposes and in cases of fraudulent transactions. However if I may add I think we can also be vigilant in giving our payments. For me, I prefer the COD method because its more secure to get the items before giving the payment.

If you consider a local transaction as buying/selling BTC, consider a casino. There are plenty of eyes/cams to deter crimes. There's always wifi. It's easy to get change. You can dawdle away time at the quarter slots, as compared to looking suspicious loitering at your local bank lobby.
Bring a friend, don't talk to them, park them a few machines away from you.

Once I know how much I need to pay for an item I put that much in the wallet, and maybe 1 or 2 BTC more just in case there's a last second price change, and when

For me meeting place should be a room with hidden cameras here and there.
