Scammers beware!

published

I msged an ad, for a Mazda 3, before I got to see all these reviews glad I did!
I got a similar LOOONG soap opera story plus a dodgy looking drivers license, it sent red flags the minute, they went on and on about their life story.
And then demanding for pay ment before getting to see the car.
So I searched online for a place where we can report this website.
The only one I could find is this one, as far as i know you can report websites if they have scammed you of money.
Hopefully they can shut these scammers down

Scam listings

Just like those before me, I got the same scam email from Serena Reid saying she was in the airforce, about to be deployed and got the car in a divorce. Things didn't add up with the low price and images not matching the model in the listing, so on Googling the name, found that other here had been scammed. BEWARE Autotrader listing!!

100% Scam

published

Scam ads, same response for every ad, same assessment as the majority. sent enquiries to two different 'sellers' in locations 200klm apart. Response from same person after 5 days, being deployed, divorce, send money. Do not purchase through this site unless you want to risk losing your 'hard earned'.

Questions & Answers

Peter D.
Peter D.asked

We placed an ad on Autotrader to sell our car and we had a person willing to pay full price no questions asked from QLD (we're in VIC) and arrange for freight and costs. This person even sent me a copy of a QLD heavy vehicle driver's license. Wondering if anyone else has had the same experience? We have stopped all communication with this person and reported them to scam watch and other authorities.

My son had the same interactions as others. It's a good story. When he forwarded me the bank details I was suspicious as the account was in a personal name. I expected a company, or even a trust. This lead me to contact autotraders, and search for reviews, and I found this site. Thank goodness!
