The scam usually involves a fraudster gaining the victim’s trust over a period of several emails, convincing sellers they genuinely want to buy, sending a fake cheque or false PayPal payments to cover the cost before insisting on money for “shipping fees”.
A number of sellers advertising cars have been contacted in this way, but the emails are easy to spot. Typically they will:
• Originate from webmail accounts, such as Yahoo or Hotmail
• Be poorly written, or look as though they’re being sent in bulk with the seller’s vehicle details crudely pasted in
• Encourage sellers to use money transfer services such as Western Union
The scenarios vary, but usually follow this pattern:
• The “buyer” arranges for a cheque to be sent from a third party to the seller for the asking price of the car – plus extra to cover the cost of shipping abroad
• The seller pays the cheque into their bank and is pressured by the fraudster into sending the “shipping fee”abroad immediately via a legitimate electronic money transfer company
• A few days later, the seller will be informed by the bank that the cheque was a fake
• The seller hears no more from the fraudster
If you receive an email which you believe to be from a fraudster:
• Forward it to the abuse department of the sender’s email provider
• Use your email software to block further emails from the sender
• Do not respond
• Forward it to the Auto Trader Customer Security team – firstname.lastname@example.org
