ALTHOUGH PURCHASING VEHICLES/PRODUCTS ON EBAY SHOULD BE AN EASY & SMOOTH PROCESS THERE ARE INDIVIDUALS OUT THERE WHO ARE OUT THERE TO RUIN THIS WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE BY CAUSING DECEPTION TO YOU THE BUYER & REQUESTING FOR A DEPOSIT WITHOUT ANY INTENTION OF SELLING YOU A PRODUCT,

LET ME EXPLAIN WHAT I HAVE EXPERIENCED: 

SAY FOR INSTANCE I HAVE A BMW 5 SERIES FOR SALE & PUT THIS UP ON EBAY PRICED FOR £13,000 BUY IT NOW, THE AUCTION RUNS IT COURSE BUT & IT DOES NOT SELL AS NO ONE HAS BOUGHT THE CAR AS THE RESERVE HAS NOT BEEN MET.

WHAT THE SCAMSTER / HOAX PERSON WILL DO IS THEN COPY & PASTE MY ADVERTISEMENT & RELIST THE CAR WITH SAME DESCRIPTION ( SOMETIMES EDITED ) & WITH THE SAME PICTURES & ADVERTISE IT FOR SOMETHING SILLY LIKE HALF IT'S VALUE........SAY THEY PRICE IT UP FOR £8,000 BUY IT NOW..........SOMEONE ON EBAY WILL THINK WHAT A BARGAIN & PRESS THE BUTTON TO BUY THE ITEM.............

THE NEXT STAGE WILL BE THAT THE SELLER WILL ASK YOU TO LEAVE THEM A DEPOSIT TO SECURE THE ITEM AS PART OF THIER TERMS & CONDITIONS..........ONCE THE DEPOSIT HAS BEEN LEFT YOU WILL NOT HEAR FROM THEM AGAIN...........THEY CAN ALSO HI-JACK SOMEONES EMAIL & EBAY ACCOUNT TO PLAN THIS ATTEMPT WHICH SOMETIMES EARNS THEM THOUSANDS OF POUNDS BY DOING THIS...............

TO AVOID BEING A VICTIM I SUGGEST THE FOLLOWING;

1. ALWAYS CALL THE SELLER ON THE LAND LINE & MOBILE NUMBER TO CONFIRM THEY SAY WHO THEY SAY THEY ARE.

2. BEFORE LEAVING A DEPOSIT ASK THE SELLER TO FAX OR EMAIL YOU OVER AN INVOICE WITH THIER DETAILS, THIRDLY TRY TO PAY BY PAYPAL IF POSSIBLE OR IF YOU DECIDE TO PAY DIRECT INTO THIER BANK ALWAYS PAY BY CHEQUE SO THAT YOU CAN CANCEL IT SHOULD YOU NOT GET YOUR ITEM.

3. TRY TO IN EVERY SITUATION IF POSSIBLE GO & SEE YOUR SELLER IN PERSON TO LEAVE A DEPOSIT & VIEW THE ITEM YOU ARE PURCHASING.

4. ALWAYS CHECK THE PERSONS FEEDBACK & ONLY KEEP COMMUNICATION THROUGH EBAY & NEVER A HOAX EMAIL ADDRESS.

 

IF YOU FOLLOW THESE RULES YOU SHOULD AVOID BEING A VICTIM OF HOAX SCAMMERS TRYING TO HUSTLE A FEW POUNDS FROM YOU.

 

HOPE THIS HELPS
