A recent article in the Adelaide Advertiser called “Fake buyers in new car-stealing racket” (October 14) reported on an emergent trend of hoax buyers tricking individuals. The crafty crooks have a well-rehearsed routine whereby they contact a person who has a car for sale online. They will offer a price and then produce false receipts, documents, or screenshots to convince the seller that payment has been processed. The sellers then complete the sign-over process but end up with no money showing up in their accounts. Most of these cars end up over the border never to be seen again, and with the seller left out of pocket.

Many car sellers fall victim to such traps and end up losing their car for no cash. But Total Wreckers is a completely reliable and trustworthy car buyer in this case.

When selling your car, be smart and take your time. If you are selling your car through online marketplaces or social media sites like eBay, Gumtree, or Facebook, you should know that selling through these sites makes you more vulnerable. Fake buyers and scammers are always waiting for your ads and are ready to strike. Here are some tips that might help you prevent yourself from such online fake buyers:

   Fake Buyers: Tip to prevent

  • The sale will flow smoothly if your buyer is legitimate and fair. First, speak on the phone with the buyer. Many scammers hide behind fake email accounts that do not provide their location with any details. Ask customers to send you their phone number and set up a chat time; the swindlers are going to vanish fast. Check the phone number and email of a buyer when in doubt. Use search engines if necessary.
  • Fake buyers could, on purpose, get into an accident or damage the vehicle, and then say that when they purchased it, it was already damaged. Then they could try to make you pay for something that wasn’t your fault. Make sure you describe your car accurately and thoroughly when making your advertising online, including any vehicle flaws. This will help you prevent this scam.
  • Another popular scam is when a customer will say that they have paid, but before you ship the vehicle, the online payment service provider holds the money. Be careful of receipts from emails. Make sure the money has entered your bank account before you part with your vehicle.
  • It’s not unheard of to purchase a car without seeing it beforehand, but it’s very rare. So be vigilant when someone is ready to buy your vehicle without first seeing it in person.
  • Don’t be fooled by email receipts that are fraudulent.
  • For money transfers and cheques, take your time.
  • Don’t allow other people, on behalf of the buyer, to pay for the vehicle.

While selling online has its own perks, the risks are also quite inevitable. If you want to avoid all the complex conversations with the buyer then contact us now. You aren’t going to get a better price for your vehicle anyway.
