How to avoid scams and fraud
Take any cashiers check you receive to your bank and ask them to cash and clear it where they cannot come back to you for money if the check if fraudulent.
Here are some various scams that are common place on the Internet, or any other means of advertising:
Anyone who asks you to wire. funds for the vehicle they have listed is most likely a scammer.
Some scams involve sending the seller a fake cashier's check or money order to pay for their vehicle, but once the bank has cashed the bad check/money order the seller is held responsible.
This should go without saying, but NEVER, I repeat, NEVER give anyone your financial information. This includes any of your account numbers, social security number, account logins, etc. You're just asking for trouble if you do.
Please be careful if a buyer who is interested in your vehicle lives in a different country than you do. We're not saying that everyone who lives in another country is attempting to scam you, but do your homework to make sure it's a legitimate buyer before making the sale. Obviously, you want to protect yourself with any potential buyer (or seller for that matter), but transactions between countries may make it more difficult to take legal action.
If the seller asks for a partial payment, upon which the vehicle will be shipped, it is most likely a scam.
Here are some real examples of scams that have been seen:
If you open a Home equity line of credit account and email it to me, I will deposit $250,000 for the RV and shipping. Then, I need you to ship 4 or 5 cars for me, using the extra money I deposited"
"My father's RV is in (Pick a state), and I flew back there last week to sell it, only to find out the supposed buyer didn't have enough money. I'm not flying back to meet you to sell my RV unless you send me (some large amount of money...$2,000 to $5,000) to pay for my trip. I can't afford to pay my own way at this time, and don't want to waste my time if there isn't a sale."
A so called "agent" for a buyer wants you to accept a cashier's check from them in excess of the price of the RV - so they can receive money back.. Some of them may even want you to take out a home equity line of credit and send them the bank and routing number!
"Am okay with the vehicle after i accepted on your price at which you accepted on selling it out;
apparently,i will like you to know that the earnest payment $1,000.00 NON REFUNDABLE will get to you in a Money order which will include an excess
The $1,000.00 NON REFUNDABLE you are deducting from the excess fund is for you not to accept offers from another interested buyer's due to the fact that i do not want to lose this vehicle,the remaining balance which is the difference of the excess fund should be wire to my agent via western union money transfer after you must have deducted your own share $1,000.00 NON REFUNDABLE.
THE $1,000.00 IS NOT PART OF THE SALE ASKING PRICE IT ONLY A NON REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT TO HOLD THE PROPERTY FOR 14 DAYS FOR MY AGENT TO ARRIVE IN YOUR LOCATION TO INSPECT THE VEHICLE AS SOON AS YOU RECEIVE THE EARNEST PAYMENT $1,000.00 FROM UPS COURIER SERVICE.
i want my agent to come to your location and inspect the vehicle in person with you.
Note: you are required also to deduct the cost of money transfer charges from the balance and send the rest to my agent as advice.All the information needed in this- transaction will be forwarded to you after you must have received the payment from UPS,my agent -information as soon as you received the payment package. After payment has reached you and balance sent to my agent.
