    You mean if you are buying an account? You need the Gmail that's all.

    The original owner of gmails can recover the account back anytime using a trusted device. So make sure you deal with someone trusted.

    the way i am doing when selling accounts, i give the password for the email (much prefer if it is a gmail account), recovery email account, phone number that is being used for verification and sometimes if the account has security question answer i also provide.

    Even if you give all information to the buyer and he changes everything, plus enables 2 step verification, you can still recover that gmail by using the device that was used to create it. You can atleast put that gmail under verification when google will simply freeze it. Gmail is storing device and IP history for a while which allows them to track an user from past.

    I not aware of it, thanks for the heads-up and i guess buyers will now be much aware and more cautious.
    Better way is to buy accounts from trusted seller with guarantee.

    be sure you ask all the details, ask for guarantee that you will only be the sole owner of that account and he will not re-sell it to somebody and when you have it and you already login on that account you change everything you want for that account.

    Yes, u will need the gmail account password. BUT u have to be careful about one thing also: even if u have the pw, when u will try to login from an unusual location, google will lock the account and will ask you from where u usually login? so have the seller on skype/teamviwer on other side and then login, change the pw, security question, recovery email address, and then pay the seller. That's the safest way.

    Yeah best is to deal with a trusted person or a mediator(pay some to this guy too.) Get him over your Teamviewer change things infront of him so that you wont locked out when accessing the account over a new IP.
