Why buy XMR through mail or in person?

There are options to buy it through official crypto websites, so I’m just curious as to why other people wouldn’t prefer this safer option, is it just because of privacy?

If you bought it in person or by mail, did you think you were going to be scammed?

(I’m not bashing on anyone for choosing a certain way, I just want to know your personal reason as to why :slight_smile: )
