SCAM WARNING FOR SELLERS

Avoid Scammers – PetGroomer.com Classified Ad Sellers Advisory

Individuals in other countries, and rarely in U.S., will respond to your ads placed on various classified web sites on the Internet about the sale of automobiles (mobile vehicles) and usually large ticket items for sale in used equipment classified ads.

COMMON SCAM FORMATS

Typically they agree to purchase your vehicle or high tag item very quickly, sometimes without even a test drive or inspection. They may mention a 3rd party will be come to look at it or pick it up to distract you. They send you a realistic looking cashiers check or money order in an amount exceeding the agreed upon purchase price. The seller contacts the buyer concerning the over payment. The buyer asks the seller to quickly refund the over payment usually by Western Union or a similar service.

Unfortunately counterfeit cashiers checks are abundant. Banks typically hold funds while the cashiers checks clear and many and worthless. If you have given up ownership of what you are selling it may be gone forever. If you made a refund of the over payment to the seller it is gone too. This scheme has been around for decades and has not gone away.

Know your buyer, and never take an over payment. DO NOT DO BUSINESS SOLELY BY EMAIL. Get a phone number for the buyer and call it to verify it, and make sure it is in the U.S. Only then could authorities follow up with assistance. Scammers rarely give out true phone numbers or their locations. Do not rely on them sending by a 3rd party. There likely is no 3rd party because they are outside of the U.S. Remember, do not do business solely by email.

In our experience the Used Mobile Vehicle category of ads is the most susceptible to this type of scam. Fortunately the word is out and rarely do sellers put their email address in ads selling vehicles. Fortunately we know of no one scammed from our Used Vehicle ads. NEVER use an email to sell used vehicle is our best suggestion. You will get scam emails if you put one in your used mobile ad.

Though we said “DON’T” some groomers selling used vehicles have actually faked it and taken possession of fake cashiers checks or money orders on purpose without turning over their vehicles to the “new owners.” They took the counterfeit checks to the FBI. Sadly they were told there was little that could be done when the culprits were located outside the U.S. Please don’t risk your safety. You are welcome to forward us an email you get from a potential buyer if you think it is a scam and we will review it. Better yet, don’t even use email!

Everyone should ask their bank for assistance. Having funds wired into your bank account is the cleanest method for many sellers. The funds are good once your bank says a wire was received in your account. However, never accept over payments. Reminder, cashiers checks can take 2 weeks to clear. Don’t accept payments not drawn on a U.S. bank in U.S. funds unless you are located outside the U.S. and your buyer is local to you. If you feel uneasy, get professional help with transactions. We feel this is especially important for the sale of vehicles and businesses. Businesses should definitely use the services of an attorney writing up a contract of sale.
