Q. How do I know if an advert or potential buyer is genuine?

If you are at all suspicious of a vehicle advert you have seen, or of a potential buyer who has contacted you, please do let us know. Some signs of a fraudulent buyer can include:

  • Offering to pay over the odds for the vehicle
  • Requesting to pay by cheque, PayPal or Western Union
  • Agreeing to buy the car without viewing it first
  • Arranging a shipping agent or courier

You can find more advice, guides and videos on safe selling at our security page. Remember – if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Q. What should I do if I think I’m being contacted by a fraudulent buyer or seller?
